Florentine in Grand Hyatt Manila Offers European Delights On the Go
Updated as of February 4, 2o2o
Grand Hyatt Manila is home to diverse food and beverage places—it has something for almost all types of food you may crave. The Grand Kitchen, for example, is the all-day dining venue of the hotel while The Cellar is the place for wine, cocktails, and small plates and tapas.
You don’t need to go far if you’re looking for an on-the-go place for coffee and pastry, too! Located at the lobby of the hotel beside The Grand Kitchen is Florentine, a patisserie outlet for European-inspired pastries, specially-crafted coffee, and deli food.
True to its name, Florentine’s signature offering is the Florentine cookies (Php 220). Florentines are not like your ordinary cookies. Instead of flour and eggs, these are made with nuts and candied fruits, giving the cookies a unique texture and flavor.

If you’re looking for something savory to fill up your stomach, you may try their best-selling sandwiches: the Italian Cold Cut Mortadella Sandwich (Php 160) and the Shaved Ham and Cheese Pandesal (Php 160).
