Abaca Baking Company: The Trendiest Bakery/Cafe in Cebu

The Abaca restaurant group opened its newest outlet that is fast becoming the trendiest bakeshop/cafe in Cebu.  The Abaca Baking Company started serving fresh breads and pastries to Cebuanos a few weeks ago.  It is located at the Crossroads Mall in Banilad. The Abaca brand has always been a favorite among upscale diners and this new bakery/cafe/coffee shop is another sure hit by the famed restaurant group.

While I got attracted by the smell and the feel of the place, I was truly mesmerized by the artworks on the walls of the cafe. The stylish cafe coffee doubles as an art gallery, as well.  These paintings are from the +Qube Gallery .

Abaca Baking Company has a wide selection of breads, pastries, cakes, pies, scones, sandwiches, and many other baking masterpieces. It is really hard to choose if you are a sweet tooth.  Everything looks so yummy.  As expected, the goodies were priced a bit more expensive than your ordinary bakeshop.

My friend and I decided to get some brownies and a mixed berry cake. I was very surprised that the food was not too sweet. I love the texture and the contrast of flavors of the mixed berry cake. I really had an enjoyable time and I feel that the nearby La Marea now has a formidable competition.

For me, the cafe has the most beautiful menu. The menu cover is literally a work of art. The menu board art is made by +Happy Garaje .

Abaca Baking Company also serves salads, main courses, and appetizers. The choices for drinks are not only limited to coffee, tea, or juice, but also beer and wine. 

The ambiance of the newly opened cafe is very cozy.  It is a perfect place to have a date or a relaxing lunch meeting with friends and colleagues.  I think you can really become so creative in this place as Abaca Baking Company can really inspire anyone to create a personal masterpiece.


I really had a delectable experience on my first visit that I ended up buying a couple of scones to bring to my wife.  She loved it and I am very certain that we will visit this place again in the near future.
