Another authentic French bakery recently opened in town -- Le Petit Artisan in Greenbelt 5. It's a bakery owned by Frenchman James Rondane, who has been selling his assortment of bread in the Salcedo and Legaspi Markets. The Max Brenner group partnered with him to set up Le Petit Artisan.
What I like about him is his philosophy of using the finest ingredients and not using any refined sugar in any of his bread. Of course, the bestseller would be the authentic baguette, which Filipinos know as "the French bread".
A preview of the available assortment of bread in Le Petit Artisan:
The types of bread here are not the ones we are normally used to because they are a bit hard and somewhat bland. I ordered this Walnut Cinnamon bread, which is the closest thing they have to sweet bread among all the bread offerings. Best to enjoy it toasted and with coffee.
Coffee is also available (they carry the Nespresso brand).

P.S. The croissants are handmade but a bit disappointing.
