Eats in Cebu: Abaca Baking Company

The Abaca Baking Company is a coffee shop-cum-bakery designed to be a hangout place, what with a mellow playlist—volume kept low enough for people to hear each other, an abundance of chairs and tables, the strongest coffee shop WiFi connection in the city, and strategically-placed USB outlets to charge your gadgets once you’ve had your fill of Instagramming the place. With an interesting selection of art from Qube Gallery coupled with whimsical art by Happy Garaje, the Abaca Baking Company is a picture-perfect venue.

Still, as with any establishment by The Abaca Group, the highlight of the Abaca Baking Company is the food. “We’re in the business of baking our own stuff,” explains Jason Hyatt, along with the suggestion to visit the café early in the mornings for the freshest pastries. “Muffins, scones, croissants, loaves, sticky buns—all the bread comes out and it smells awesome in here. Then you’ll get a real feeling of what the Abaca Baking Company really is.

Jason emphasizes that none of their ingredients are artificial, from the flour they use to make their pastries to the fruits they use on their tarts.

Besides breads and pastries, Abaca Baking Company also serves a variety of dishes, from the well-loved Eggs Benedict to sandwiches, salads and burgers. Rounding up the true Abaca Baking Company experience is their extensive offerings of coffee—served double shot unless otherwise requested.
