Foodie Alert: Breads & Pastries from Madeleine

Madeleine is one of the several restaurants you can find inside Waterfront Hotel Cebu. This restaurant is the hotel’s French-inspired bread and pastry shop, making it stand out among the rest of the restaurants. You would go crazy if you are a cake-lover because this shop serves one of the best cakes in town!

Last October 16, 2015, Madeleine just launched its new set of pastries and bread. The launching also highlighted their new French Executive Pastry Chef, Benoit Andre Laboureux, who is responsible for the newfangled pastries and bread.

For this article, allow me to focus more on their pastries. They had served a lot of mouth-watering desserts for us to taste.

The only dessert not found in the photo though is the Sphere Choco Green Tea. It is a sphere of chocolate with a Green Tea flavor. 

I had the savored two of the eight delightful pastries that they have served – The Crunchy Choco Baileys and the Choco Orange Grand Marnier.

The Crunchy Choco Baileys is made from a nut and almost paste which makes this lovely dessert crunchy. It is also composed of Meat Chocolate, Coffee, Baileys, and whip & cream. The flavors blend perfectly allowing the taste of the baileys to stand out. The chocolate ball with a ganache made from meat chocolate and whip & cream was somehow too sweet. The covering of the chocolate ball was quite hard to munch on but once you have broken its shell, it’s so easy to consume it already.

For the Choco Orange Grand Marnier, the freshness of the Orange flavor shines. I like how the flavor of the fresh fruit captures my taste buds. It is also made from Dark Chocolate, Whip & Cream Marnier, and Cocoa Powder. 

Madeleine is located at the Gourmet Walk of Waterfront Hotel. It is open from 7 AM until 10:30 PM. You can view more details of this bread and pastry shop at
