Panaderia is the Filipino term for local bakery/bakeshop located around almost neighborhood in the cities, as well as in the provinces of the Philippines. A Panaderia is a common sight in any localities all over the Philippines with glass counters that display local bakery products like Pan de Sal, Pan de Coco, Spanish Bread, Kalihim, Machakaw, Pinagong, Eggpies, Macarons, and a lot more. These Panaderia also bake cakes for all occassions.
In the Panaderia, especially in the rural and provincial areas, the breads and other baked products sold are simple, almost crude, but comforting. These Panaderias sold breads, biscuits and crackers alongside pies, cakes, pastries, and candies, a wide, assorted and diverse selection that fully utilized the skills of the Master Baker called Panadero in Filipino.
