Bocas Modern Patisserie Cebu

Bonjour everyone! Bocas Modern Patisserie is the newest slice of heaven in town. Thanks to Chef Jean Louis Leon, Cebuanos now have a chance to taste modern French pastries. So if you dig this kind of foodie adventure, you will definitely love Bocas (bocas means mouth).

If you're ready, here's a photo overload once again but I'm sure you won't be sorry. Just scroll down for more. ;)

Luckily, I got invited to visit Bocas last week and sample some of their pastries and beverages. The moment I heard about the invite, I was sure I was never going to miss it at all. What with my fascination of French food and culture!

Off I went on a Wednesday afternoon! Chef Jean is right when he said he always makes sure that even little details aren't left out. When I entered the shop, I was greeted by their accommodating crew, was given a towel, and instantly I felt comfortable. 

He sure knows great customer service is a must and I saw that not only for bloggers who were invited but also for regular customers.

I love, love their place! Simple but very welcoming and clean. The spaces are very functional too.

As I was one of the first few people who arrived, I was able to sample some of their fruit jams. Yum, yum!

Aside from great customer service, what I love most about Bocas are their unique and delightful pastry options. Everything on the plate is edible, styled so beautifully that I want to forever frame it in my mind. ♥

Here are some of the pastries we sampled. Their cakes and pastries range from Php 95-195 approximately. Not bad for these quality delights, right? We had -- 

*Javanais Orange (jaconde biscuit, orange marmalade, butter cream, cointreau syrup)
*Triple AAA (almond biscuit, apricot mousse, amaretto cream, chocolate glaze)
*Strawberry Eclair (with strawberry filling inside)

I also love that Chef Jean is very, very hands-on. It's as if he never gets tired of baking and making delicious stuff. Truthfully, seeing him bake and speak about baking is also like seeing his great passion in baking pastries and letting the people experience real goodness.

True enough, the passion is there because each pastry he serves is a testament to it. From the first bite down to the last, you can really taste the different ingredients combined wonderfully to create a masterpiece. I was so amused. And amazed. I wished I could be as good, but I'm never even into baking at all, I just eat. Lol.

And of course, this whole thing wouldn't be complete without the most-loved French macarons. These are freshly-baked caramel macarons.

Served last was the Strawberry Ivory Genoise Cake -- wuhu I cry. So delish! 


One of the ladies from their crew also offered me a hot drink. I chose the cacao-based drink with 34% milk (includes fresh vanilla and cream too), and what's good was that I could see them actually making my drink.

It's crazy because a few minutes after this hot drink, I was offered the Prosecco wine, haha! Who was I to complain?!

I have to say this has been one of the best foodie experiences I've had so far. All in all, it was a lovely afternoon! I will definitely be back, and I seriously recommend Bocas to you too. 

Bring your family, friends, and loved ones when you visit. They will still be adding tables and chairs soon to accommodate at most 20 people at once. Plus the restaurant is kid-friendly with kiddie chairs and some toys so no worries with kids around! ;)
