The ERIC KAYSER Difference! Natural Liquid Leaven, Baked Fresh in Manila by French Chefs :)


ERIC KAYSER is an authentic French Artisan Boulangerie in Manila, which is a licensed partnership between Eric Kayser and his local partners, Jacky Ang, Kelvin Gaisano, and Chris Tiu. Eric Kayser has 96 stores in 17 countries, with the Philippines as the latest expansion.

You should notice the difference in the taste and texture of their bread because of their signature Natural Liquid Leaven, which sets it apart from the yeast-based breads in Manila. Eric Kayser demanded to have a commissary from the start and sent his trained French bakers in Manila to ensure the top quality of the breads, following the tradition of using a long natural fermentation process, slow kneading, and small-scale production.

Gone are the days of flown-in frozen French breads. The key is to baking fresh daily using top quality ingredients and following a strict artisan production process. Once you've tasted the Eric Kayser difference, it will be very hard to appreciate other French breads in town.

Here's what we love about Eric Kayser...
