Le Petit Artisan, Authentic French Bakery in Greenbelt 5 :)

Le Petit Artisan-10

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.

Le Petit Artisan-6
Authentic Baguette (P60 per 300g).

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:

Le Petit Artisan-7
Multi-grain Poppy Seeds Bread (P190/ kilo).

Le Petit Artisan-8
Sourdough Loaf Bread (P150/ Kilo).

Le Petit Artisan-12
Californian Walnuts Bread (P180/ Kilo).

Le Petit Artisan-11
Farmer's Sesame Sourdough (P160/ kilo).

Le Petit Artisan-13
Muesli Grain Bread (P175/ kilo).

Le Petit Artisan-9
US Walnuts Cinnamon (P180/ kilo).

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.

Le Petit Artisan-5
Nespresso Freshly Brewed Coffee (P88).

Coffee is also available (they carry the Nespresso brand).

Le Petit Artisan-14
It is a nice hangout place in Greenbelt 5, an alternative to Starbucks since you can dine al fresco with a view of the greenery while you enjoy your bread and coffee. :)

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

I saw this kanina and I was about to tell you to visit it. hehehe. I think I will be bringing home a baguette tomorrow after my meeting :) Hehehehe!

We were there last Jan30 because we missed Max Brenner. Glad to see a patisserie beside it so I decided to try it out. Ordered 2 croissants, fromage pizza, a couple of hugmugs. The chocolate concoctions of Max Brenner still warms the heart. Unfortunately, I found the croissants too hard despite asking the counter person to warm it a bit. Still prefer the ones from Alexandre @ The Fort.

omg must try this
all we need now is an australian bakery

I would agree with your comment on the croissants. I would still go for Alexandre...


Wow nice =) what time to they open?

good question! I dont know but I assume it would be mall hours around 10am but I might be mistaken since they are a bakery.

Oooh! I love the croissants from Alexandre at the Fort, too!

I really loved to eat baker food.This loaf bread is one of my favorite bakery food I am very excited to see this one It is very nice for us I am very excited to se thisone It is very cool blog You post very nice bakery food

I used to order my bread from James regularly since he would deliver it to my former office (he had several loyal customers there) and it's by far the closest thing I have found to bread like it is found back in France. Thanks to James, I got a taste of home right here in Manila! I'm excited to visit Le Petit Artisan in GB5! ;-)

Wow, mukhang authentic nga. Pati yung nagtitinda mukhang french hindi mukhang anak araw. Mabisita nga 'to.

Thanks for the info Sir Anton!

Thanks for the comment ! So it is really as close to authentic French bread as you can get here in Manila :)

makes me want to bake some bread >:)

Best time to go 9pm less 30%.

Btw nothing beats alexandres' almond croissant! Nothing!!!!

Btw best coffee I've tasted belong to Red Baron coffee shop, I really recommend to all coffee lovers to try their Americano and Cappuccino, best talaga!

where is Alexandre at the Fort? thanks

I indicated the directions in the blog post, it is near 7/11 near Shell the Fort.

Unfortunately James is not there anymore, and the bread is of a very different quality now. Sad.....

Huh? what happened, Pierre?

Wala nga silang pang slice ng bread eh. :| Bumili kami noon tas ipapaslice sana namin, di daw kaya ng slicer nila.

There's wifi in Mr. Jones and in Origami :D

we used to get our Pain au chocolat from there...last Sunday we bought 4 to go and decided to eat one in. we were so shocked that it was a)dry as a saw dust, b)hard enough to throw at somebody despite having it heated, c)the texture was more of heavy loaf bread than the stretchy/airy/flaky-ness of a croissant. I tried asking the sales person if this was how they typically make it; i should not be surprised when they answered 'yes'. This is what I'd call a highway robbery - selling failed items to paying customers. To cut the long story is not a place to be patronized having no quality control whatsoever.

they're now in serendra... :D gotta try this soon. i dropped by their store a while ago and the bread and cakes look so yummy!!

oo nga I saw them operational na... Ill check them out.

quality has gone down considerably. there was a tiny cockroach in the wholewheat that i bought, i thought it was a black sesame seed that got accidentally mixed in with the batter, lucky my wife was there to tell me that it was actually a tiny cockroach or insect. had to throw everything out.

The bread here is terrible. I'm so disappointed and will never try again.
