Recent years have seen the much raved sweet fluffy Japanese treats we call cheese tarts take the country by storm.

With the world famous BAKE opening its first store late last year, our cravings for these cheese tarts seem to be returning. Lucky for us, there’s a good number of places that offer these melt-in-your-mouth treats locally, from foreign franchises to a couple of local bake shops. Here are just some of the places you can visit to satisfy those cheesy cravings:

1. BAKE Cheese Tarts

A homegrown Japanese brand that has people all over Asia lining up, recently opened its first few stores in Manila. BAKE mixes cheese from Hokkaido and France to achieve the sweet zesty taste and creamy texture people love. This is all topped off with an irresistibly crunchy golden crust that lines the tart.

You can get them per piece for P95 or boxes of 6 for P540. Despite being on the pricier side of this list, cheese tart lovers will find plenty to enjoy with what BAKE has to offer.  

Visit BAKE Cheese Tart at the ground floor of The Podium and Rockwell Power Plant.


Another one of the Japanese brands that have brought the cheese tart craze to local shores. Pablo sets itself apart by offering more variety to the basic cheese tart by having different flavors like matcha and chocolate. Besides this, you can decide on the doneness of your tart. Whatever you pick, Pablo’s cheese tarts remain richly cheesy and incredibly tasty.

Pablo’s Regular Freshly Baked Cheese Tart costs P599 while the mini versions, which are more similar to the size of the others on this list, are P100 per piece.

Visit Pablo Manila at their branches located in Robinsons Ermita, Bonifacio Global City, and Greenbelt 5.  

3. Uncle Tetsu

While closer to an egg tart than a cheese tart, Uncle Tetsu’s take on the beloved treat is still very much commendable. Their cheese tarts are still generously loaded with cheese that tastes just right – not too sour, salty, or sweet.

Uncle Tetsu’s cheese tarts are the most affordable on this list. A piece costs P49 while a box of 4 costs P180.

Visit them at their branch in Upper Ground, Building A, Megamall.


One of the proud local brands competing with the more established foreign franchises, Lava proves that Philippine sourced cheese can make for amazing cheese tarts. This combination of cheeses give a blend of flavors and tastes that is truly to die for. The way the gooey cheese slowly oozes out of the tart can make anyone hop on to the cheese tart trend.

You can get their cheese tarts per piece at P80 or in a box of 6 for P450.

LAVA Cheese Tarts has branches in SM Aura, SM Megamall, SM North Edsa, Uptown Place Mall, and Eastwood Mall.

5. Paper Moon

More known for their crepes and cakes, Paper Moon actually has cheese tarts too. And though somewhat different, their cheese tarts share the same great sweet cheese flavor as the others on this list. They recently revealed their new Blueberry Cheese Tarts, which look and taste like bite-sized versions of a traditional American cheesecake.

You can get Paper Moon Cheese Tarts for P60 per piece or P300 for a box of 6. The new Blueberry Cheese Tarts are slightly more expensive at P70 per piece.

Visit them in their various branches like Glorietta 3, Robinsons Magnolia, SM Mall of Asia, Promenade Greenhills, Trinoma, and many others.

6. The Breadery

The Breadery serves a wide variety of breads and pastries including cheese tarts. As much as it’s good for all cheese tarts included on this list to be eaten freshly baked, it’s especially great with ones from The Breadery. The more tough and structured crust have the right texture and crispiness while the insides are soft and delectable.

You can get their egg tarts for P79 per piece.

Visit them at their branches in Emerald Avenue, Ortigas and UP Town Center.
