” I really recommend BOCAS as a dessert destination in Cebu. They don’t just sell dessert like any other bake shop, they sell a unique and genuine experience that comes from the heart and leaves you with a happy tongue !” Jeffrey Broutin’s review on November 10, 2016.
I was not looking for a new place to review, however Fredo insisted to drop by at this place- BOCAS Modern Patisserie.
And NO, this is not a new place- the shop opened around June-2016 and shame is on me, I haven’t heard about this place until now.
BOCAS Modern Patisserie is owned by a French chef, Jean Louis. The cafe is located inside the Banilad Town Center, Main Mall and was dubbed as “The Litte France” in Cebu by one of the reviewers.
And YES, definitely, I agree.
Stepping into this cozy cafe is a bit of a time warp. It playfully showcases a setting of a traditional kitchen in France serving classic desserts with a twist! (Feels like a kitchen.)
“The interior is a reflection of who I am as a Chef. Modern, eclectic, with respect to old traditions. We like our spaces to be interesting and unusual.” Chef Jean Louis replied when I asked him the inspiration of their interior. “Our tagline is Unusual, As Usual”
And NO, you could never know what would happen next.
Each benevolent pastry on display is like a blank canvass. You pick which one that catches your fancy.
And YES, they’d turn them into a piece of art right in front of you!
The experience I had had at BOCAS Modern Patisserie felt surreal- so genuine, passionate, and damn delicious!
I couldn’t believe such an intimate place like this exist in Cebu!
And NO, I am not exaggerating!
I am in love with BOCAS the way I am in love with Haruki Murakami. (So I said it! Damn!)
What did Cebu do to ever deserve this place? Tell me.
