When Ninong’s Pastries & Cafe first opened up their doors, they had one goal: share authentic Filipino food and culture with the Los Angeles community. They’ve been doing exactly that at their Northridge bake shop since 2008, serving up breakfast and lunch with Filipino style.
The pastry game is certainly hard to top—the ube macarons and buko pies are stone-cold killers—but you definitely should not be sleeping on their cafe fare. The sisig Benedict is terrific, and the same goes for their pancit and chicken adobo. The sandwich menu shouldn’t be ignored either, especially that tocino banh mi. You’re going to have a tough time messing up your order, to get over to Ninong's Pastries & Cafe ASAP, or better yet, book them to cater your next event.
