When we went to Italy, I remember that our breakfast was composed of freshly baked croissants and other pastries and a cup of tea or coffee. Going to Alexandre in Megamall reminded me of these delightful pastries.
I researched and looked for the man who started this shop that reminded me of our breakfast. It was interesting to read the story about the man behind Alexandre, Alexandre Micheals. He mentioned that coming to the Philippines was a complete leap of faith. He says, “You must overcome your fear of failure. One must either be a little crazy or very confident to take this leap of faith!”
My favorite among the pastries that they have would be the Pain au Chocolat (Chocolate Croissant). This is amazing especially after you heat it. The chocolate melts in your mouth. Each piece is at Php 50. I find it though a little expensive for the size of the croissant.
They also have Almond Croissants (Php 55) and plain Butter Croissants (Php 30).
Aside from the Chocolate Croissants, my next choice would be the Norwegian Cinnamon Bun (Php 49). It’s more firm than the bread like cinnamon rolls that we are used to, but I like it because it has just the right amount of sweetness. All these pastries I have mentioned go well with tea or coffee.
Alexandre offers not only pastries and the light snack and dishes that I have mentioned, but they also sell bread. Whole loaves of the different kinds of bread that they sell range from Php 95 to Php 200.
