Just a few days ago, a new Figaro branch opened - at the newly erected Patriarch Building in Chino Roces cor. Don Bosco, Makati.
That day, there were simultaneous celebrations - the opening of this branch, and the bank fronting the coffee shop, and the blessing of the Patriarch Building.
Part of the celebration was the ribbon-cutting ceremony, the blessing of the store, and the much-awaited coin and candy toss.
This Figaro branch is smaller than the other branches I have visited and only serves drinks and pastries - no hot meals and pasta dishes. Even so, every drink and pastries available at every Figaro branches are available here, too, so if you're in the area and you fancy some drinks and pastries, please do drop by this branch.
A catered breakfast buffet was served, but Figaro offered pastries and drinks to everyone who attended the event. It was my first time to see their newest cake - Blue Velvet - but for my choice of pastry, I went for My Little Oscar, which is basically their version of Sans Rival. I loved this cake because it was lightly sweet and packed with lots of cashew nuts! It was just a sweet ending to a sweet celebration.
Figaro at the Patriarch Building (Chino Roces cor. Don Bosco) is open from Mondays to Fridays - 8am to 5pm.
