Established since 1939, Kamuning Bakery has been baking the best breads in Quezon City. A favorite of previous Presidents (Quezon and Aquino) and famous for its old fashioned way of making pugon baked breads, this not so small bakery is even popularized by the Pandesal Forum during the height of the election thus my curios mind wants me to check and try this restaurant.

Kamuning bakery is beautifully adorned with paintings and old things thus giving a rustic and homey feel. The interior is simple and the place is neat and clean. This is also a good place for small talks between family and friends.

Flat White
Presentation wise, theirs is above the usual flat white (I commend their barista for the intricate latte art). Milk and espresso are proportional thus creating a well-balanced coffee and I noticed that their coffee beans are not so acidic and has a nutty flavor. 9749

 Hot Choco
Not too sweet and has a generous amount of chocolate and I love the latte art, the face of President Duterte! 128521

Lastly, I would like to commend the owner Wilson Lee Flores for being accommodating and friendly and the staff for being so nice and attentive. 128522

While eating at Snackaroo, I suddenly notice just across the street is this very politically popular bakeshop.

Kamuning bakery is one of the oldest bakery in QC and they still do the old school style of baking pugon pandesal. Since Wilson Lee Flores took over the management of this old bakery. He was able to add a cafe beside the bakery. He was also able to capture media attention during the eleksyon with his witty pandesal forum.

The interior of the cafe is very nice and has an old filipino house kind of vibe. Displayed in the cafe are some memorabilia from old paintings to some awards. They also have some great collection of books.

I tried their cafe latte. I'm not sure what coffee bean they use but I think it was sagada beans. I love the taste of it and latte art was also impresive. My friend got the hotchoco and we requested it to have the famous president digong latte art. It was very impresive. At first I though it would be a stencilled latte art but this one is a brush stroked latte art. Nice!

Overall I love the place and was happy how they were able to maintain the old style at the same time made it fresh. I was also happy to meet Wilsom Flores. I'm a fan of his Philippine Star column every sunday.128522 Be sure also to grab some of their delicious pandesal!128521128077

Heard of this place as politicians' favorite. The place is somehow antique and ambient. They have a bakery with really affordable breads, and on the other side is their restaurant. I really didn't get to explore their menu as I went straight to their coffee. Got myself their Cappuccino - it came with a cute little bear art but the coffee was bitter and so strong that I doubt I'd be able to sleep tonight.

Anyway, yes, I wouldn't question why it's a favorite café to many. It's the kind of café that is old but memorable, relaxing and effortlessly lovely.

Stopped by Kamuning Bakery and Cafe last night on the way home. It is said to be one of the oldest bakeries in QC, having been established in 1939. First stop is the bakery: I bought cinnamon rolls, macaroons, and pan de limon. They were all okay. Served it today as our second breakfast in the house. Then we also ordered Pan de Duterte at the Cafe just because we were curious about it. It was a huge pan de sal with burger patty, cheese, lettuce inside. We tried both the spicy and not spicy version. It's not bad for 80 pesos.

I'd probably be back here to try their dine-in services and also to try their cakes. 128522

*Palatability*
Mochaccino Cake P65
This fluffy sponge cake is served with just the right amount of sweetness. The coffee-choco buttercream icing is very light and soft to the tounge. The cake filling also complimented the cake.
One thing that needs to improve in this cake is its ability to stand its form. The cake was served a bit deformed, made me thought it was reheated before serving. The staff clarified the cake was too soft thus gets deformed every time it gets sliced. The photo I took was able to hide that deformity.

*Price*
Budget friendly. For desserts alone, you can spend between P50 - P150.

*Personality*
The place gives you a lot of historical memorabilia. You'd have to learn the history of the place to better enjoy the food. This is one of my goto places after I have learned about the new owner's business strategy of redeeming the store. His ingenuity was truly an inspiration.
The crew is accomodating and attentive, including the guard. I only ordered cake and yet was automatically given clean drinking water, and served it before we even ask for it.

I would truly come back here and try their other cakes.

Went here last Monday. Ordered their "grilled kesong puti sandwich" (as stated on the menu), but was served with buns that had thinly-sliced processed cheese in them. It sucked that I had to pay P120 for a burger bun and 2 thin slices of processed cheese, when I could have just bought my own authentic kesong puti from the grocery.

To Kamuning Bakery: Better scrap this very misleading and overpriced item on your menu if you have no plans of serving real kesong puti.

Kamuning Bakery offers the best pugon-made pan de sal -full and not too sweet, no preservatives and no additive products. One can say that the recipe they use is legitimately traditional Filipino. Usually, I eat pan de sal with butter. However, Kamuning Bakery's pan de sal was good with everything I tried to pair with! It was good with butter, jam, tuyo, sardinas, paté, nutella and everything else you can think of. The bread does not sag nor it becomes hard after several times of reheating.

Aside from pan de sal, they also sell all traditional Filipino breads such as kababayan, ube hopia, spanish bread, and pinutok, and one has a unique name "Tinapay ni Rizal". In addition, they also offer cheesecakes, egg tarts and chocolate cakes which are all pugon-baked. The cakes may come in slices or in wholes, while the breads come in packs of two or three.

Being pugon-baked, the texture of their pastries is different but refreshingly pure and rich, every ingredient can be tasted at its fullest.

Their products are epitomes of our Filipino heritage - rich, respectable, indisputable.

My experience in Kamuning Bakery was perfect and I can't wait for you to experience the same! :) #loolooexplorerpackgiveaway

Ordered their specialty: chicken sisig pasta! Yummy! Tasted like carbonara but instead of bacon, it's chicken sisig with green chili and a dash of calamansi! Am in pasta heaven! So good, I forgot my name... Not really... But I forgot to take a picture 128542

But definitely going back here when I'm in the area! Affordable pa!

Me and my friend went their because we are tasked to make an article for our organization. He suggested to go here because he already tried it and it was delicious. When you enter, it has a serene ambience and the design is a modern take on filipino architectural design. in terms of food, their tawilis pasta is to die for. it is their best seller and it satisfies my taste lol. tawilis is only found in taal lake which makes it so unique. i also tried their dessert which is a basil ice cream. it is kind of disturbing for some because it is typically used in italian dishes. But turn on your adventure because it is also to die for. you can really see the leaves that are grinded up. for me ill give it a 5 over 5 because it was a unique experience and i would definitely recommend this cafe to you.

FINDING COMFORT IN A PIECE OF BREAD - kamuning bakery's pan de suelos are a far cry from the light fluffy Pandesals we always have for breakfast.

This quaint little bakery/cafe has kept the recipe intact for hundreds of years and they have been producing huge, dense buns with their own distinctly rich flavor every single day since.

These buns are so delicious on their own its almost a crime to dress them with anything else other than a good few minutes on the toaster! When they're hot and slightly toasted, it's like biting into a hug!

Although Kamuning Bakery is out of the way, once you've found it... It'll be hard to resist going back again and again.

In photo: Blueberry Cheesecake, Cheesecake, Apple Pie with milk

Ok, so we couldn't stop ourselves. We didn't know which one to prioritize so we ordered all the recommended cakes.

The Cheesecake was delicious... Blueberry cheesecake is same cheesecake with blueberry topping (the blueberries were beginning to look like raisins, but they were still good).

The apple pie they recommend you eat with evaporated milk. At first, we couldn't fathom how it will go down our tummy but upon tasting it, we were pleasantly surprised! It does taste good that way. We halved the mini apple pie with one half in a saucer with some milk (just enough to cover the saucer surface) and the other half just the plain apple pie. Both tasted good but the extra oomph came from the milk!

Note to self: be open to weird suggestions especially if it comes from the one who manages the store. 128523 Next time I go back (of course, I will go back), will try the other cakes and goodies too.

Fun fact: established around 1939, it was said to be the oldest bakery in Quezon City.

They just opened a Cafe area! And it was their soft opening earlier. Tried their yema cake, it was okay. Also some of their pastries like the choco marble bar and butterscotch bar - not much of a fan of the two bars but go ahead and try for yourself, we have different taste buds anyway.128521 On their cafe they offer filipino breakfast like tapa, daing na bangus and sorts. Ofcourse, a selection of coffee. They offer hot tea and juices too. The place gives out a vintage-modern filipino vibe. The place is cool and cozy. The people are nice. You'll enjoy to dine and hangout.128076
