Thinking about where to spend the beautiful evening with friends and family with a French taste? La Vie Parisienne Cebu is the first French wine library and pastry shop in Cebu. My experience was definitely a unique experience along with my friends. We spent a couple of hours, and it was Saturday – it was crowded as expected. It was okay to be surrounded with a lot of people though, just to socialize. Peak hours are from 8:00 PM to 12:00 AM.
LA VIE PARISIENNE CEBU WINE LIBRARY
The winery and bakery is located at Gorordo Avenue, Lahug, Cebu City. It is quite famous in Cebu so if you are from outside, take a taxi or Uber, it will be easy to get to this location.
The price is also high, of course, it’s a French bakery and winery! Wine prices range from the cheapest that I saw was Php350.00 to Php6000.00
Tip: Most of the most affordable wines are displayed outside (first pic below), and those that are exported or should I say classic are at the Wine Library. (2nd pic below)
There are tons of options to choose from. We hardly cannot pick which one we would like to try because every bottle of wine is just too appealing. We watched for our budget, of course, we cannot spend more than a thousand just for wine haha! It may be worth a try in the future though 🙂
If you are planning to have photo shoots inside the Wine Library, usually people have to line up for that so just for a warning. It is flocked by individuals at night, but it is worth it to have at least a decent photo in La Vie Parisienne Cebu Wine Library! 🙂
LA VIE PARISIENNE CEBU BREAD AND PASTRIES
Bread and French goods are a must try here. What we ordered were a bunch of French pastries and cheese. Oh, I love cheese; specifically, we ordered goat cheese. My friends didn’t like the taste, but I loved it. Haha, I don’t know, maybe I’m just not that picky regarding food. I almost love everything LOL!
There are also cakes and cookies available in La Vie Parisienne. Another menu, just to name a few, they have:
- Mini Croissant
- Coffee (hot and cold)
- Europe Cheese Pizza and other flavors
- French Macaron
They do not really have heavy dinner selection because this is more of a bakery and a wine hub than a restaurant. Prices are higher than average as what I said, it is expected but totally worth the vibe, atmosphere, and food selection.
At night, everything is almost lighted purple, and it is a good sight. Socializing with groups of people and friends in your circle. I have just known that if there are unavailable chairs and tables outside (ground floor), there are available on the second floor.
LA VIE PARISIENNE SHOOTS INSIDE WINE LIBRARY
We waited for minutes to get the whole place to ourselves because this was actually flocked by people choosing wines for them to drink. haha. Glad we had the time to squeeze in our shoots!

WHERE TO STAY:
I highly recommend these hotels here. If you book from here – you can get a discount at Agoda or another tip I could give is book on Airbnb.
If you have not signed up yet, sign up here and get Php1100 or $20 on your first booking, if you book more than Php2600.00! There are a lot of homes waiting for you to book them and as for my experience, I can also recommend it. Learn from my experience in my first Airbnb Cebu booking here.
