A typical breakfast in the Philippines consist of at least a viand and a cup of rice. But some also prefer pandesal with a cup of coffee. That is why you see lots of bakeshops around the corners of every town or city, just like in Tagbilaran, Bohol. It’s important to start your day on the right side of the table. Good thing we got to experience it in Estrella Bakery.
Together with CBC Bloggers, we started our Seas The Day Tour with a breakfast in Estrella Bakery. To be honest, I’m not really a bread-on-breakfast person and more of a rice-eater. I even prefer the heavy meal especially starting a long day of activities. But thanks to their delectable treats, we enjoyed our breakfast and their photo-worthy creations.
Estrella Bakery is a small cafe located in Aldea Business Center (near the Saint Joseph the Worker Cathedral) at the heart of Tagbilaran City. It can only accommodate around 10 to 15 max of customers so we owned the place during our visit. It has a stylish design and worthy of Instagram clicks.
Estrella Bakery Specials
For our morning treat, we had scones, blueberry muffins, croissants, tuna sandwich, chicken sandwich, crepés, and pan au chocolåt. I should say this place serves some of the finest bread and pastries in the whole island of Bohol.
Estrella Bakery is the only place in Bohol that serves Illy coffee. It is an Italian coffee, founded by Francesco Illy in 1933 that is known for espresso production. So if you’re a coffee lover, then this place a great steal for you.
The bakery is owned and managed by Ella Mae Labunog whose family has been in the baking business for years. She trained abroad to learn advanced techniques and hopes to continue the family tradition in the years to come.
I am definitely recommending this to my friends who loves bread and pastries when in Bohol. The price may be a little expensive compared to other cafes in Tagbilaran but relative to Cebu, it’s a take away. So drop by Estrella Cafe on your swing to Bohol and spread good vibes! 🙂
