This is my favorite Filipino bakery located at Masagsag Street in Tagbilaran City. It’s a complete Filipino baked goods shop – from cakes to popular local delicacies.
They also offer suman (made from glutinous rice cooked in coconut milk, and then wrapped in banana leaves before they are steamed). My all-time favorite is the kamoteng kahoy, but here at Jojie’s you can find banana (saba) suman – surprisingly tasteful! In addition, Jojie’s Bakeshop carry roasted peanuts without any oil or salt! And when I found these at the counter, I could scarcely conceal my delight.
Incidentally, Jojie’s Bakeshop at Masagsag Street has a dining area with the view of the water – indeed, a very pleasant place to unwind and enjoy a cup of coffee along with those freshly-baked merienda fare. Jojie's Bakeshop has branches all over Tagbilaran City.
