The 'trailblazing' French Baker

What's your favorite bakeshop? Mine is The French Baker - yes, that old bread place that's been around long before Eric Kayser, BreadTalk and Tous les Jours came ashore. In fact, it's been in our midst for more than 25 years now since it opened its first store at SM North Edsa. 
Trailblazer? I believe so! 
I love going to The French Baker not just to buy their delicious breads but to actually sit and dine at their cozy stores. What comfort it brings to take a break from shopping at the mall, just sit there for bread and a steaming bowl of soup and sip a delicious cup of brewed coffee. 
Sounds like a perfect time? Yes, indeed it is. :) 
These are what I've loved at The French Baker: 

Chicken salad croissant with sour cream potato chips, P185.
Ham and cheese Quiche Lorraine with soup of the day and honey balsamic greens, P195.
Clubhouse sandwich with potato chips and honey balsamic greens, P245.  
Beef Lasagna, P195.
Soup Starter, P85. 
Blueberry cheese cake, P80.
Carrot cake, P75.
Brewed Tchibo coffee, P85.
Four seasons juice, P62.
Brewed Citrus Iced Tea, P58. 
Iced Mocha, P64.
I love that they put lemon into their service water 
The French Baker at SM City Manila
Among the food items/breads I've had here at The French Baker, my top favorites are the quiche, soup,  salad and garlic toast, the latter also a favorite of my kids. These are perfect for a light snack on a lazy afternoon after church service or in between shopping or errands at the mall. Delicious, lightly filling, comforting. Of course, their Tchibo coffee is one of the best for me and a must whenever I visit. And may I add, it's quieter at French Baker than in most restaurants I go to, giving also the perfect atmosphere for a nice chat to catch up with friends. 
The branches I usually visit are at SM City Manila and Robinsons Magnolia.
Well, whatever you're having right now, happy eating, folks!
