Bakerrae x The Brick Room Popup!

Come celebrate Philippine Heritage Month with us! This Friday, June 21 we are teaming up with our friends at The Brick Room to bring our Filipino-inspired goods to the PATH!

We will be there from 9am until sold out!

In this Balikbayan Box...

On June 21, our Birthday Balikbayan Box will include a selection of our favourite Filipino flavours:

Mushroom Adobo Bun - The softest milk brioche bun bun made with Tangzhong, that is topped with whipped roasted garlic ricotta, mushroom adobo, shredded asiago cheese, crispy garlic chips, and fresh green onions.

Mango Sago Choux - Cream puff filled with coconut whipped cream folded with mini sago and mango curd, topped with more fresh coconut cream and fresh mangoes.

Chachalate Cookies - Chunks of pure dark chocolate (Chachalate Tanzania Pure), a crispy skirt of homemade caramel, and a perfectly chewy cookie.

Ube “Pineapple” Bun (Ube Bo Luo Bao) - Our version of the popular chinese bakery classic - the pineapple bun. Milk bread-based bun topped with an ube crackly, crunchy cookie topping (think concha or craquelin).

Ube Coconut Basque - Sweet (but not too sweet) and delicate Filipino Ube (purple sweet potato) infused in a rich coconut cream to make a smooth and creamy basque cheesecake.


Will be at The Brick Room (181 Bay Street, Toronto) from 9am-5pm.

Hi! I'm Rae.

We're a micro bakery and cafe that specializes in Filipino-inspired baked goods and coffee.

By nurse and baker, Rae.

My Story

I am Rhea Abayan, owner of Bakerrae, a bakery in Toronto. I started this business while working full time as a COVID test nurse during the pandemic.

Combatting COVID fatigue, baking was my creative escape. I’ve always wanted to open up my own cafe and opening this bakery was a step towards this dream.

I make Filipino-inspired baked goods and coffee all from scratch and have been popping up around the city for the last three years.

Woman-run. Hand-made. Asian flavours.

Bakerrae is a personal journey to Filipino flavours — drawing upon my childhood with a twist.

Toronto's food scene is seeing many pandemic pivots, but Bakerrae aims to explore new ground: you won't find anyone else topping croissant-like pastries with calamansi curd or caramelized onions in soy sauce anywhere else.

  • As you can imagine, working as a nurse during the pandemic (and even now) hasn’t been the easiest. Working on Bakerrae has allowed to me to be excited for work again. Actually, it has never really felt like “work”, which is what I love. And I hope to do more of what I love.

  • On Saturday, August 12 2023 Bakerrae x Chachalate storefront was born. Together with my boyfriend Ry - owner of Chachalate - we are sharing new and familiar flavours with my baked goods and his chocolates.

  • Since opening we've had so many amazing opportunities to share our stories on Breakfast Television, Omni Philippines, CBC Metro Morning and Blogto!

Thoughtfully made in small batches. From scratch.

This bakery is a physical manifestation of both my passions - creating and baking.

It’s a space where I can grow and create products that I love, and know you will love too!

I am inspired by my Filipino culture and childhood memories, and I want to share these unique flavours with you.

We're so excited to bake for you!



Do you offer any vegan or gluten free options?

Unfortunately, we do not offer this at the shop at this time.

How long can I keep my baked goods?

Our baked goods are best eaten the day of! However they can keep in an airtight container for up to 1-2 days in the fridge or can be frozen.

How should I re-heat my baked goods?

You can re-heat your baked goods in 30 second intervals in the microwave or oven. Just enough to warm up the buns without melting the fillings.
