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 see you at the shop!

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.
