“The way to a Filipino’s heart is through their stomach,” claims Hood Famous Bakeshop, a bakery and cafe known for their desserts featuring Filipino and Asian-Pacific flavors.

The bakeshop is guided by community building, sustainability, education around Filipino food history and culture, and aims to source ingredients locally.

Hood Famous offers unique, handcrafted takes on traditional and modern sweets and baked goods.

You need to try what Hood Famous is, well, famous for — their ube cheesecake. The adorable purple yam cheesecake is available for order in packs of four or in a four pack of favorites including ube, white chocolate guava, Vietnamese coffee, and coconut pandan cheesecakes.

Wash down the sweet treats with some colorful teas and coffees. We love the iced passion hibiscus tea, iced matcha latte, iced durian white chocolate mocha, and iced ube latte.
