Walked few blocks from office to The Breadery in Emerald in Ortigas last Friday. All I wanted is a cup of Salted Coffee.. a favorite of mine.

And suddenly, I changed my mind and give in for a cold brew. The barista highly recommended the Marble Cold Brew (8 oz for P170). The picture is so enticing that I change my mind. This is a very rare moment that I choose a cold drink.

Verdict: just a warning, this gave me a slight palpitation. The chocolate flavor is bold, and sweet when not mixed. Espresso is obvious (the barista show me the espresso in a bottle) I recommended to mix this drink well.. I enjoyed this drink, while working at my desk. The ice has diluted with the cold brew, yet still flavorful. 10084

After lunch yesterday, I felt like having a good coffee. Unfortunately, CBTL has no hot drinks yet. The weather is scorching hot while we are crossing Emerald Ave, and across is The Breadery. Like a lightbulb, I remember my favorite coffee there, Salted Coffee. Medium size costs P130. This drink has a hint of saltiness with creamy taste. Coffee craving satisfied 128521

The smell of bread once you enter is very invigorating. The place, the interiors, the breads, very enticing. Would definitely be going back besides the fact that it's just near our office. Also try their marbled cold brew. 128077🏻1278389749

I'm loving The Breadery's Chocolate Hazelnut Bun. The bun was nicely chewy and moist. The stuffing of hazelnut flavored dark chocolate (to my mind, much better than Nutella) was just divine. It was creamy and rich in the bittersweet chocolate flavor with that pronounced hazelnut taste and the right level of sweetness. Perfect with a cup of coffee.

This piece of hazelnut flavored bread heaven comes highly recommended to foodies who love Nutella.

Honestly, I'm not a fan of bread but out of curiousity, since my bf loves bread we ate here for meryenda. They have a free taste on each bread they sell, so I tasted them all. What I love is the Kouign Aman, Olive Cheese Bread and Americano Garlic Bread. We also tried their Marble Brew Coffee. Breadery is kinda expensive (or maybe because I don't appreciate bread that much) but the bread they serve are fresh and soft. Not a typical bread store. Maybe I'll go back here just to have the Kouign Aman.

I drop by at least once a week coz I just love their Frozen Mocha and they have a wide variety of breads (plus they are so close to the parentals place). I come here so often that they already know that I take my drink minus the whipped cream.

Ever since they rearranged and moved their oven, i have been dining in more often. There are more tables and chairs and their aircon is comfortably cool. And i love the smell of freshly baked bread.

Must Try
- Mocha Frozen Beverage, just the right combo of chocolate and coffee, extra thick and filling
- Marbled Cold Brew, pretty strong coffee with chocolate. This is what i get when i need an extra boost in the morning. I request for extra syrup though
- Olive Cheese, our fave from their breads. It's a loaf but we ask them to cut them into bite size pieces. We snack on this a lot
- Kouign Aman, light and flaky, not too sweet
- Butter Croissant
- Bacon and Cheese
- Belgian Chocolate Buns
- Hazelnut Buns

You can request to have your breads heated whether you are dining in or taking them home. There are bite size samples for most of the breads.

Annndd we're back and I finally found a place that serves Canelé!!

When a homegrown concept comes into life and offers bread loving folks satisfaction, even if its located inside Ortigas, paying a visit is definitely worth it! 128525

They have a wide array of bread offerings from unique flavors such as early grey tea bread, truffle bun, kimchi bread down to the classic ones such a almond croissant, Kouign amann, savory breads that pairs well with their cold brew. Using natural yeast on their bread is one of key reasons in maintaining tasty and (not to mention) healthy breads.

When you pay Breadery a visit please please don't forget to take home some Canelé. It's my favorite!! Think smooth custard cream baked into a bread enveloped in a crusty caramelized bun. This is by far the best in Manila! 1008410084️ Oh and that's the smallest one in the picture 128514 Okay now I'm craving! 128523

Tried their Almond Croissant and I sooo loved it.
Though I didnt like much their Coconut and Blueberry Spools, for me it was just OK.
I will definitely go back to try their other bestseller :)

I went here after a draining meeting in Raffles Center (Ortigas). I was amazed by the great selection of breads in the bread counter. It feels like I wanna try them all.

I decided to try the Kouign Aman and the Canelé, as recommended by Gio and Chichi. Kouign Aman is a glazed-bread that's almost the same attributes of a croissant - flaky and crusty. Well it almost tasted like croissant with more butter-ish flavor. The Canelé was a small cylinder-shapes bread that's filled with awesomeness! It has a soft and tender custard center and a thick caramelized crust that's good for my liking. The first bite was quite weird for me, tbh, 'cause it's too sweet for me; but reaching the center was just beyond words. I actually mistaken the center part as a sponge cake due to its texture, well, a bit closer though.

I like both breads I've tried and would love to try the others when I got lost in Ortigas again!

The aroma of fresh baked breads greet you as you enter. A wide table with a spread of their baked goodies is in the middle with an oven churning out breads is in the south corner. You can enjoy eating inside or al fresco. Or better still take loads of their breads you won't regret it. The Koiugn Amann is so big and filling best I've had now. All their pies that look like turnovers are good also! Paired my bread with their guava juice, best to try their coffee too.

I'm back than sooner to this place and I'm loving The Breadery's Kouign Amann and Canele.

Persistence payed off. After my very recent visit to this place, I have fell in love with a number of their fine hand crafted breads. The first visit though, their Kouign Amann and Canele were out of stock.

This visit was a success. The two French pastries from The Breadery made me love the place more.

The Kouign Amann: their take on this pastry from the Breton Region of France was simply divine. The pastry was delicate with its multitude of laminated layers. Nicely buttery with a delicious caramel glaze holding a delightful light crunch. What I particularly loved with The Breadery's version was that their Kouign Amann was huge (roughly 5 inches in diameter and 2 inches thick). Moreso, it only costs php 70 a piece. I sheepishly admit that I find their version even better than two favorite sources of mine for these delicate French treats. Plus the fact that The Breadery's version was cheaper. We "hacked" the Kouign Amman dessert at home by serving it with a scoop of Salted Caramel ice cream from Carmen's Best and drizzled the plate with Caramel syrup. Fancy, decadent, delicious sweet ending indeed.

The Canele: this yummy mini French pastries mix two textures into a divinely sweet treat. The crust holds a buttery sponge like cake crusted with a caramelized glaze that has nice light brittle texture. Upon biting into these small morsels, the crunch is accompanied with the luxurious custard cream filling (somewhat like firmer leche flan or pana cotta). These fancy pastries are priced for only php 200 for 3 pieces. They make excellent mini sweet treats with coffee or tea.

Their Kouign Amann and Canale come highly recommended to sweet tooth foodies who fancy decadent sweet breads.

It goes without saying, The Breadery is now my favorite specialty bread shop.

A new bread specialty cafe/shop in the Ortigas Center area that will surely make any bread loving foodie drool. This is The Breadery where they specialize in fine handcrafted sweet and savory breads.

I have great fondness of good breads (quite even more than rice). Be it eaten with my main meals or for snacks, I hardly pass up the opportunity on munching on well made bread--sweet or savoury.

I first came across The Breadery last year thru its stall at The Powerplant Mall's Baker's Dozen Fair. Ever since, their Olive Cheese Loaf has practically been a staple bread at home. The family has been hooked with this bread specialty. The whole wheat bread is lightly crusty yet holds a delicious marbling of chopped olives and cheese within its perfectly spongey insides. We love slicing this whole wheat loaf into thick chunks , lightly toasting the slices (which releases a mouthwatering savory bread aroma, gives the crust a more delightful crusty texture, and makes the cheese marbling lightly melt into a creamy guilty ooze) and pair this with homemade hearty soups, pasta dishes, scrambled eggs, topped with pate, or simply eaten alone. While we knew that The Breadery's main branch was at the UP Town Center, their stall at Rockwell was pretty much an easier access for us to their delightful Olive Cheese Loaf.

When they said that they opened a new bread shop /cafe branch at the Ortigas Center , a visit was due.

Their Ortigas branch evokes the rustic-cozy feel of a specialty bread shop. The mouthwatering scent of freshly baked bread welcomed us as we entered the shop. More than their brick walls and open baking area, their huge and long center table is laden with all their bread specialties that lure the customers' eyes and heighten that temptation to savor The Breadery's many specialties. So many to choose from! From the more familiar sweet and savory variants, to a number of unique bread concoctions. To pair their breads, they also offer hot & cold coffee preps, juices, and frozen milk shakes.

Aside from the fact that their staff and crew were very helpful and knowledgeable about all their products, we liked that The Breadery offered customers free bite size samplings of all their breads. A good move to ensure that customers are able to try each bread before deciding on what they would like to purchase.

This visit, a number of their bread and pastries truly won our tastebuds.

The Belgian Chocolate Bun: we immediately fell in love with these soft, chewy, spongey chocolate rolls stuffed with melted dark Belgian Chocolate. These buns are no way like cakes or Kopi roti in texture, but more like chocolate flavored bread. These dark brown buns are one of The Breadery's best sellers. Not bad at all for 160 (5 pcs per order). We were lucky that a freshly baked batch was cooling at their open-kitchen baking area. We were told that customers would often hoard on these buns thus this usually ran out pretty fast. We ended up taking a couple of orders more for home. To reheat , these buns should never be toasted but rather nuked on high in the microwave for 15-20 seconds. Boy! They would smell and taste just as good as they were freshly baked. This is quite a treat to foodies who enjoy bread and chocolate.

The Apple Pie: we loved their Apple Pie (which tasted more like an apple turnover). Instead of the usual pie crust, the sweet pastry was baked in a delicious delicate , flakey, lightly crispy, glazed crust (I'm guessing they used something similar to a good phyllo dough). The apple stuffing tasted more of a yummy chunky apple sauce-lightly cinnamony, creamy, with chopped apple bits and the right sweetness level. Moreso, we loved the fact that the texture of the pastry, albeit using a layered or laminated technique in pastry making (multi-layering of dough and butter), wasn't oily at all (a flaw I've sadly encountered with other bread shops). Not bad for 90 bucks.

The Lemon Pie: we loved this sweet-tarty treat. Again baked using the same delicate, flakey crust, the dough was stuffed with a delicious lemon curd filling. Not bad for 85 bucks.

The Chicken Curry Pie: we loved this savory treat. Using the same flakey, delicate, crust, the stuffing was a mixture of minced chicken meat, chopped carrots, and spices in a light curry creamy sauce. Not at all spicy, but delicious with that hint of curry flavor which tickles the tastebuds.

The Kimchi Bun: a unique pastry which we enjoyed. The chewy, spongey soft buns had bits of minced kimchi folded into the dough. The yummy surprise was the stuffing of chopped kimchi mixed with cream cheese. Perhaps not for everyone's tastebuds, BUT we loved the unique lightly sweet-pickly-lightly spicy savory bun with its creamy savory stuffing. Not bad at 150 for 4 pieces.

Since they just opened, for a minimum purchase of php 300, customers get a choice of free Americano coffee, Cold Brew Coffee, or juice. I opted to try their house made Iced Cold Brew Coffee. The crew explained that instead of using the usual heat and pressure technique to extract the coffee, they used cold water to steep the coffee beans between 14-16 hours. This resulted in a coffee beverage with lesser acidity but stronger caffein content. I liked this prep. Though I took mine black and unsweetened , to my mind, this coffee prep would make for good iced cafe latte.

Aside from a few whole loaves of our fave Olive Cheese Loaf we bought for home consumption, we also took out their Truffle Buns. We loved the savory buns. Chewy buns, nicely flavored with truffle essence, and stuffed with a flavorful creamy , savory, earthy mixture of cream cheese and chopped porcini mushrooms. Again, perfect when nuked for a few seconds to bring the buns to a nice warm and make the stuffing melt into a thick flavorful creamy goo. Good for solo munching or excellent with mushroom soup. Not bad at 170 for 3 pieces of these decadent buns.

For the price, the selections of breads, the freshness and texture of their products, and their helpful/knowledgeable staff, The Breadery certainly makes for an excellent place to get honest-to-goodness exquisite breads.

The place comes highly recommended to foodies who enjoy breads. I can't wait to come back for a refill of the breads that won us over. Moreover, I'm keen to try their other specialty breads/pastries that were unfortunately out of stock when we visited. Their Kouign Amann and Canele were hoarded by a couple of customers before us 128548 and I'm eyeing to try The Breadery's version.
