We ate at the Ayala Cebu. Decided to try here because I read good reviews about the cream puff. My friend got the chicken sandwich with tomatoes. It looked like it was good for two if you're not very hungry. The cream puff was served...cold, the dough(?) was no longer soft. I liked the filling though, but not gonna try this again. The sandwich was okay, 2 huge sandwiches with chicken, tomato and lettuce. There was an onion dip and lettuce salad(?). I thought the chicken was dry though. The staff was polite and friendly.More

The service was good this time, the food is just not up to Abaca standards. The seafood chowder was kinda runny and bland with minimum bacon or seafood. Jake's chicken sandwich was short on Nashville hot rub and the creamy slaw was runny and lacked...flavor. The Cesar salad was mediocre at best with minimal bacon and the dressing was watery and tasteless. We won't be going back!More

We eat here now and then. This time was a bit frustrating. When ordering I asked if I could get some Cajun/Spicy seasoning on the chicken which comes on the Chicken Chopped salad. They nicely asked but were told no. Then we ordered a Cuban...sandwich to share (along with 2 salads and fish and chips) so I asked them to please cut it in 4 pieces. They told me that was not allowed either. That is lame!!!!!!! My Chicken Chopped salad was supposed to have blue cheese on it but there was none. It was also supposed to come with Ranch dressing but what came on it was not Ranch as I know it. Plus there was very little of it. Not a good day for this location!!!More

The breakfast that goes with our rooms at the Citadines Hotel is taken at the Abaca Baking Company restaurant at the ground floor of the hotel. Every time we go on trips, we choose hotels that offer breakfast to go with the usual room rates....It’s more convenient and there’s no rush to go out to grab a bite. This time around, we wished that we had taken our breakfast somewhere else. The breakfast spread is modest. The bread section which is usually where my wife starts was passable (no cheeses though). There was the day’s fish and the day’s noodles which was to be on the table the following day, too! There were no local delicacies on the table. The fruit section saved the day for me.More

Finally, visited Abaca Baking Co at Ayala Terraces... i was expecting truly good and soft and chewy bagels and pretzels... blah! I was disappointed, that it was hard (was it sitting on the display for over a day?) I expected it to be chewy and...soft. I don't know what's the hype all about.More

the venue is conveniently located with plenty parking. all staff were super friendly upon entering and i chose an upstairs table . I felt the patrons were well suited to the venue with its "quirky" but enjoyable art works. the crowd were trendy and even...the more aged were smartly dressed, I could tell. my AMERICANO with hot milk arrived quickly, smelt great and tasted even better. I craved a second cup but knew it would spoil the first. The simple bagel with cream cheese was the BEST I have eaten in ASIA, period. Service was professional and quick with smiling staff. To me the venue had a great feel with people chatting, laughing and at one huge table looked like a business presentation in full swing.More

First time to eat here. Their Chorizo Fried Rice was amazing and it goes well with their Cafe Americano. The staff were all nice, friendly and efficient. Must try when you are in Ayala Center, Cebu.
