Umaga Bakehouse, a contemporary Filipino bakery, is scheduled to launch on April 20th at 4703 W Foster Ave, Chicago, IL 60630. Nestled in the North Mayfair neighborhood, the bakery stands opposite the Seafood City supermarket and will welcome customers daily from 7 am to 8 pm, offering a unique twist on the traditional Filipino bakery experience.

Conceived by Robert and Kissel Fagaragan, Umaga Bakehouse serves as a homage to their cultural roots. Drawing inspiration from the rich tapestry of Filipino cuisine, the bakery’s menu reflects a blend of tradition and modernity.

The name “Umaga,” which translates to “morning” in Tagalog, derives its inspiration from the esteemed Filipino greeting, “Magandang Umaga,” symbolizing a fresh beginning and a welcoming ambiance with each patron’s visit.

Umaga Bakehouse presents a diverse array of offerings, celebrating the culinary heritage of the Philippines. From classics like Pandesal and Ensaymada to innovative creations such as pan de coco and ube-infused delicacies, the menu caters to a spectrum of tastes. Featured selections include Sans Rival, Siopao, Bibingka, Pancit Malabon, Halo-Halo, Ube Horchata, Longanisa Roll, Menudo Buns, and Ilocos Empanada.

The inception of Umaga Bakehouse dates back to 2007, when Robert and Kissel crossed paths while employed at a bakery. Bonding over their shared love for baking and Filipino culture, the duo embarked on a culinary journey that ultimately led them to the vibrant culinary landscape of Chicago.
