Estrella Bakery and Why You Should Visit Tagbilaran's Hottest New Bakeshop



There's a hot new bakery in town! If you love the finer things in life like good food, you'll feel right at home at Estrella Bakery. Nestled at the heart of downtown Tagbilaran, this shop offers a mouthwatering assortment of pastries, breads, confections and beverages -- all of them a labor of love and culinary expertise. 

There are plenty of delectable treats to be enjoyed at Estrella Bakery. Equally plenty are the reasons why you should visit this bakeshop -- here are four to get you started. 

Illy Coffee
Love coffee? Estrella Bakery is the only place in Tagbilaran City that serves Illy coffee. An Italian company founded in 1933, Illy prides itself with an unmatched passion and knowledge of coffee biology and chemistry. Illy delivers coffee of the highest order, coffee that delights using only premium Arabica beans harvested from farms in four continents and prepared using an innovative, state-of-the-art system.  

Illy coffee is more than just a drink, it is a rich, sensory experience. Don’t settle for anything less than what coffee should be. Swing by Estrella Bakery anytime to enjoy a cup of Illy’s world-renowned blend.  

Crepes 
Craving crepes? A crepe is a pancake-like dish that originated from Northwest France. Today crepes are enjoyed all over the world, popularly served sweet with toppings like ice cream, fruit, chocolate and Nutella. But did you know that crepes can be enjoyed as a meal? Savory meal crepes are filling, unsweetened dishes usually topped with cheese, meats, eggs and mushroom.

Whether you like your crepe sweet or savory, Estrella Bakery is the place to go when craving it. Estrella's crepes are prepared using a traditional French recipe and premium ingredients. Try the almond caramel crepe, a crowd favorite, while there. 

Old Favorites, New Twists
Want something new? Estrella Bakery doesn’t just offer international confections. This shop serves old and traditional favorites with exciting new twists. From empanada to chocolate cake, everything at Estrella Bakery is a result of careful and artful preparation. 

Estrella Bakery sets itself apart from other bakeshops in that it constantly pushes itself to reinvent and redefine what food should be. There is a world of flavors, textures and aroma waiting to be discovered in all the culinary creations this bakeshop. 

Sit Back and Enjoy

This is the place to go when you want to simply relax, share conversations and, of course, enjoy good food and drinks.
