The food was at par with other French Baker restos in the Phils. Noticed that the staff are very young, most probably interns from the HRM schools in Davao. They can get a little frazzled with customer requests at times.

Enjoyed a tasty quick lunch after shopping. Location is convenient next to mall. Seating is ample and comfortable and quiet, away from hectic mall crowds. Service was polite and quick, food offerings were good.

A total terrible lunch: seafood pasta oily and noodles overcooked, the cordon bleu was almost black over-fried and without cheese. Impossible.

SM Lanang Excellent coffee. Very good bread. Very helpful staff. Their coffee is very good. I drink much brew coffee and it's very hard to find real good coffee in Philippines. This place is worth a long trip. You can go with taxi from bus terminal Ecoland for 150 pesos. Or take a jeepney for 8 pesos.

Perfect spot for a coffee and a Sandwich! After doing a heavy shopping spree, nothing is like sitting down here and eat a perfect delicious sandwich together with a coffee and a cake.

I get all my bread and pastries from the French Baker and I have yet to find something that I'm not in love with. Their baguettes are the perfect balance of crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside. Restaurant food is also pretty good. Most meals come with a side of salad and some vinaigrette dressing and I... More

This place has several locations in Davao, most small coffee and pastry in malls I think. In SM Lanang mall there are two. There is a small one on the center of 1st floor next to krispy Kreme donuts and there is a large one more like a traditional restaurant on the outside of the mall on the perimeter next... More
