One dinner at home, we had this dessert from Gerard Dubois Cafe. My parents loved their Orange Loaf Cake that they had take home for dessert.

The cake was really simple but the taste was divine. It was not too sweet or that it tasted strong. 128076🏻 It was just right. 128521 It's good to pair it with black 9749

After our dinner, we went to Passion which is located just beside Hey Handsome (where we had our dinner). We wanted to get rid of the taste of the durian we had for dessert and sought help from this patisserie.

The ambiance of the place, even just staring at it from the outside, was so inviting. It's a nice tambayan, especially for the ladies, but dudes would also love it here since the place is serene.

I had a hard time choosing between having a gelato or a "cake". I ended up having the latter.

I got the Opera L'Orange P148 since it's one of the best sellers here. I found it okay. The chocolate was quite dark and thick and I was able to taste the orange from the fillings. It was nice as it added some citrus flavor to the dessert and a little contrast to the sweet and bitter taste if the chocolate.

I honestly had a hard time finishing this small cake. So for the price, I would say it's okay.

Will try their gelatos next! And perhaps some food as well 128522

Lunch date w Mommy. 128111 I usually get excited whenever Mommy visits me and I look forward to where we're going to have lunch. Brought her here since she was craving for pasta and pizza. 128513

We ordered the following:

CHICKEN TIKKA PIZZA.
This sour dough pizza was good. There were a lot of chicken added. There's a weird taste and smell but surprisingly, I still liked it. 128517 But given the chance, I'd get the flatbread over this one. The flatbread is better, crispier and yummier.

BEEF LASAGNA.
This was just okay. Kind of overpriced and not something we'll get again. The pesto w mushrooms pasta was good, though.

It's self service but the staffs are nice and helpful. They'll help you with choosing what to order and will even explain it for you. And oh, not sure if she's the owner or manager but the "owner or manager" was there during our visit and she was very hands on. Taking the time to talk to the customers and will even recommend other dishes or pastries/desserts to try. She was even refilling water and cleaning the tables. 128077🏼

I've been to Passion by Gerard Dubois several times now and each visit was good. My first visit was with my daughter for our after school date. She wanted to try their gelato, I wanted to try their desserts. Their selection of bread, pastries and desserts was impressive! Everything looked so good! Aside from these, they also offer Macarons, coffee, pizza, pasta, sandwiches, salads and some savory dishes.

We got to sample a couple of their gelato flavors until my daughter settled for the Banana. We got one scoop in a Tulip Waffle for 110Php. The gelato wasn't the smoothest there is in the market, it was in fact a little icy but it tasted good. Sweet with good banana flavor, the tulip waffle had this nice crisp as well.

My daughter also requested for a French Butter Croissant (72Php). Great butter flavor, crisp and flaky, served warm, you can ask for additional butter and/or jam. We also tried their Pan Au Chocolat (82Php) and it was good as well - flaky but soft, with a generous chocolate filling at the middle. Their croissants weren't too expensive for the quality.

We also tried the Passion Cheesecake (138Php). Gorgeous cheesecake that was plated nicely too. Loved that it was smooth and creamy with tangy notes from the cheesecake. This has a nice surprise center filled with thick and luscious chocolate! Each spoonful was sinfully good!

My wife was eyeing this place for the longest time and the minute we had a free afternoon, wifey and I had a late lunch.
The place is awesome, more of a high end cafeteria with a French vibe. They have it all from freshly baked bread, ice cream, pastries, sandwiched etc. one stop shop!
This is the kind of place where expats would come in ... Have a coffee w pastries or ladies who lunch.
My wife ordered the ft:
Cream of corn soup : tasted like Campbell's
Bacon flatbread : good but half was burnt
And crepe w cheese, egg and bacon.
The crepe was alright but the egg white was still under cooked for me.
The croissant was amazing!
Based on the reviews... They seem to excel in pastries, coffee and bread. Maybe it was a bad day but unlikely we will return. Try it out tho!

daughter is 7 months old today so we decided to take her here so she can have a souvenir photo with a pretty cake. and that inverted "P" artwork certainly looks like an "L" (my little girl's initial).

ordered an espresso so everything would come in cute little pieces. the interiors of this place is something else. makes it easy to imagine that outside those doors would be the chilly streets of paris. my only gripe is that they dont have petite little forks to go along with the cake!

Ever since he moved in,  my French neighbour never failed to greet me with Bonjour.  I was a lil coy but gave my innocuous smile.

Figure of speech,  you guys!  I'm referring to Passion.  I finally had the time to swing by couple of days ago.  I heard that aside from pastries and breads,  they also offer gelato.  I initially wanted the green tea variant but they don't have it when i visited.   I settled on the Earl Grey variant,  i partnered my frozen treat with a peach danish.

Lemme describe the interiors first.  Passion screams elegance and sophistication.  From the furniture and the lighting fixtures.  It felt like i was trasported to Paris when i entered.

| Earl Grey Gelato.  Flavor wise,  it is good - not too sweet and has a subtle kick of tea. The texture is a lil off as it failed in the creamy category.

| Peach Danish.  This is the prettiest danish I've ever seen.   Magnificent yellow hue that will surely captivate every human being who dares to gaze into it's ethereal beauty.  Aesthetics aside,  the pastry is delicious!  Soft,  flaky with a decadent cream filling.  Best paired with a cup of joe or English Breakfast Tea.

This is the start of my illicit love affair with my French Neighbour.

The whole afternoon me and Ateng were searching for interior finds and design stuff, while walking along the Fort area, we were once again called upon by the glowing lights of this glass framed facade entitled Passion by Gerard Dubois... Suddenly I remembered all the salivating looloo reviews from all of you here..... So....Thizizit and I can't step back 128522128077🏻10084️ must...try...Passion!10084
Since everybody was literally crowding the display area, we went straight to the back where it got me more hungry seeing the french casserole, and the selection of pizzas hehehe128522128518128077🏻

Good enough, one of the staff were able to guide us through our selections, up to the cashier 128077🏻128522 despite the crowd hehehe 128518

We tried Passion's Artisan Pizza, the Four Seasons Sour Dough Pizza, which was flavorful enough and had generous toppings of salmon, salami, mushroom and chicken tikka 100841008410084️ the greens above it were overflowing as well 128522128077🏻10084️ ohwell this pizza had me at first bite, and the rest of it as well hahaha128518128518128518 yummy yummy!

Next on the plate was the plump and hearty Beef Lasagna.... I underestimated the size which was quite filling in the end 12852210084128077🏻wonderful blending of the layers, not overpowering 12852210084128077🏻

We also tried the Smoked Bacon Flatbread among the La Palette selections, crispy in its thin crust goodness with all the yummy bacon slices 100841008410084️ perfect if you just want to grab something light to eat 128522

For our drinks, we didn't feel like getting the bottled juices on the side so we opted for their mocktails which were also great! Ateng got Strawberry Lemonade, while I got the fresh-tasting Pear Williams 12852210084128077🏻

There's still a long checklist to try out the other mouth-watering foodie finds....my eyes kept sideglancing on the tables around us as I could see pastries, gelato, panna cotta's, macarons! Got a pinch of Lemon Loaf Cake and my it was also good! Oh my, I shall return, Passion!!!100841008410084

Tried the ones in photo (hot choc and pear danish) and smoked salmon on flat bread and the chicken tandoori salad. Everything so excellent. Also tried their gelato, green tea and lychee and vanilla and chocolate everything's really really well-executed. Love the flakiness of the pear danish. Not too steep and you get value for money 127824

My final stop with Php235.50 budget will be at Passion by Gerald Dubois.

Before I enter Passion by Gerald Dubois Boulangerie Patisserie Contiserie, I noticed that there's a promo signage outside.

The Tea Time Set Promo. For Php150.00 you can get one Danish or Croissant paired with Tea or Coffee. The promo is valid from 2PM to 5PM.

The staff recommends Banana et Chocolat Danish and Cafe Latte by Illy's

Banana et Chocolat Danish - 1108811088110881108811088️ 5/5

Cafe Latte by Illy's - 1108811088110881108811088️ 5/5

The interior of Passion by Gerald Dubois is very nice, bright and elegant. They also have attentive and accommodating staff and can communicate well with customers.

With Php1,000.00 budget I visited 4 hype restaurants at BGC. Not bad! 128556

Definitely going back to this place. 128077

So much to try in this place, from the salad, pastries, pizzas, cakes, macarons and many more. How I wish my tummy had more space.

I would recommend that you order their Flatbreads and sandwiches as it's really good.

Fell in love with their Caramel Creme Brulee, will try the Vaniila next time.

The Pesto Pasta and the other cakes were just okay.

It's really a hit and miss on the dessert, depending on ones preference. You may order macarons or a scoop of gelato if you want something safe.

Ohhh emmm geeee!

Totally chic and drop-dead gorgeous! I really really love this place thanks to Jayson J Dennis O and Kristin A! What better way to cap off the night than spend some quality time at this french bakery/restaurant. And I was also introduced with our new addition to the looloo community Elaine O!

My eyes were sparkling at the sight of those colorful pastries and chocolates and cutie guy from the cash register and stacks and stacks of bread. Hahaha! No, honestly, this is something worth coming back for! And it is priced just right, I mean a little bit steep but not that you'd say there are other cheaper, better versions! I mean it literally screams heaven! And it is the only one in the PH! Oh my.. Those bad boy pastries, just you wait when I come back, I'll devour you like there's no tomorrow. Haha!

While the rest of the gang had hot chocolate/green tea latte, I had their Lychee Story mocktail (PhP120) and Earl Grey and Tiramisu/Coffee Macaron (PhP52/pc). The lychee story mocktail was a fresh, summery gulp with a bit of a fizz! Every bite of their macaron was sinful, and I especially love the flavor transition I had with their Earl Grey macaron with an initial tea-y flavor and then a sweet caramel surprise inside! Yum!!!! I was going to pick a few of their juices for my pasalubong but I remember it's a no-no for fluids in the airport unless you check them in as extra baggage. Ugh!
