Postrio Cake & Pastries

28 May

Welcome to Postrio

One of my absolute places to go-to when I want a quiet time alone or with family is Postrio Cakes and Pastries, particularly in Ayala Center Cebu. I have been conferencing with cousins and spending some quiet study time for lessons or making reports there. Being in there is quite a contrast to the hustle and bustle of the mall, and yes, time stands still there; especially when there’s good food. They have branches at Ayala, BTC and Parkmall. I guess, I have visited every Postrio branch (as I can remember).

This is more than just a bake shop or a bread place, they serve sumptuous meals without shy

servings. Although the meal inclusions have been dwindling due to skyrocketing prices, the quality of the food that they serve remains the same. They have a wide array of dishes ranging from soups and appetizers, to sandwiches, to full meals. That’s just beside the gorgeous display of sweets in their chiller; making your mouth water every time you take a glimpse at the glass display. And get this, THEY HAVE ALL DAY BREAKFAST MEALS! For every visit, I never cease to order their Tocino Filipino 🙂 yum!

They serve illycaffe , one of the best coffee brands from Italy. Aside from coffee beverages, they also serve fresh or frozen dalandan, lemonade or iced tea. That’s a perfect match to your selection from their dessert counter or their menu. You can also score freshly baked bread every day. They’re very known for their wide range of whole wheat breads for the carbohydrate conscious individual.

I guess, all you want to have in a cafe/bakery is already in Postrio. Mind me for being partial to this place; it’s one of my favorites.

Rating:

Food: 9/10 – although I love their whole menu, some of their desserts are too dry or hard or has seen too much of the chiller

Value for Money: 8/10– yes, for the budget conscious individual it’s not too friendly. The menu’s in the middle to maintain the quality of

Breakfast ALL DAY!

the food. The desserts on the other hand are quite affordable (but if you just roam around cebu, there are cheaper pastry shops)

Whole Wheat Bread

Service: 9/10 – the quality of customer service differ with every branch. I give Parkmall a 10 on that and the other two a 9. This place though is not for the impatient.

Cleanliness and Ambiance: 10/10 – not a spot on them! there is no funky smell, the place is so neat. the interior design is so well thought of and you can clearly identify their design and interior with their brand.
