Philippine Bread House is known in the Filipino community in the area. It sits along Newark Ave north east of the Jersey City court house. The parking lot is small (about 15 cars) and it is very difficult to get out from as the spaces are too tight. There is metered street parking outside but on a weekday, it is difficult to get parking because of its proximity to the courthouse.
The variety of baked goods seemed authentic. Their ensemada and mocha cake are okay. Do a sight and smell check when you are buying because their products as it does not have an expiration date on it.
They also have hot food served restaurant style but they are not known for it. [If you have a hankering for authentic hot Filipino food then head west to Max's fried chicken (maybe a mile down the same street heading west)]
I go there if I want to buy Pan de Sal. (a Filipino bread that can be eaten as is or as a bread for breakfast lunch or dinner). I advise you to call the bakery first and find out when they will bake these bread as it goes fast and people do line up to get these. There is a school nearby and students tend to snipe them fast as they go home from school as it is so inexpensive. $2.50 for 10 pieces. The rating I gave them reflected my very brief in and out type of visit I did most recently.
I would rate their pandesal 5 star out of five
