From London to Iloilo: Mrs Wharton London Bakes and English Tea

Need I say more? As a keen follower of the Facebook page of Mrs. Wharton London Bakes and English Tea, I have to admit, I am always blown away by the enticing posts. I love Nutella, Ferrero Rocher, Reese, even S’mores – and you somehow can’t explain the feeling when all your favorites are in and on a cake. The first time I heard that Ferrero Rocher cake is available at Mrs. Wharton, I did an emotional somersault. No words can explain how excited I was. And then, Reese cake. With that, I just can’t help but fall in love with Mrs. Wharton London Bakes and English Tea – the place certainly knows how to push all my buttons.

And yes, the place certainly knows how to push everyone’s buttons. The British Savory – good for two Lasagna at Php 150, Tuna Melt sandwich at Php 95, and my favorite – Sausage and Mashed Potato with Onion Gravy available at Php 95. What’s more enticing at Mrs. Wharton is that you don’t have to spend much to enjoy amazing food. I am actually writing this on a more personal level because I am in love with Mrs. Wharton. Yes, take my word, the food is amazing.

The Mrs Wharton London Bakes and English Tea Journey. 2017 was the year when we all fell in love with Mrs Wharton London Bakes and English Teas located at the SM Southpoint. We all witnessed how the London-inspired shop blossomed into a sweets and savory haven, decorated by interesting and colorful furniture pieces that ‘brought’ London to the City of Love. Its soft opening, April 4th. It had its grand opening later on May 6th.

It was in February, Valentines Day, when Mrs Wharton went beyond the confines of SM Southpoint in SM City Iloilo. A kiosk was assembled at SM Northwing where Mrs Wharton offered its signature Love Box to the public – featuring red velvet cupcake, apple cinnamon cupcake, vegan cupcake, and chocolate ganache. A few months later, ‘Tarts Of My Life’ was introduced as an addition to the Love Box. Tarts Of My Life included Caramel, Cheese, Truffles, and Lemon Tarts.



But the offerings at Mrs Wharton only got bigger: “Your receipt is your ticket to your next out of the country destination”. It was in June, 12th to be exact, when the ‘One Country at a Time’ made its debut. Customers get the chance to win a free trip outside the country by dining at Mrs Wharton. The mechanics were simple: Visit, Eat, Repeat. To qualify, customers must take hold of their receipt and drop it in the special box at Mrs Wharton. Later on, it was revealed that the first out of country destination was Japan. A year later, in April 2018, the ‘One Country at a Time’ winner was announced.

The Mrs Wharton shop never runs out of ideas. It was in July when ‘Dress Your Schublig’ promo was introduced. ‘Dress Your Schublig’ Just the Way You Want It was a promo that offered the European sausage to be ‘dressed’ in any way the customer wanted it. Customers were given the choice of barbeque sauce, ranch dressing, mustard, caesar dressing, and toppings of cheese, chips, and vegetables.

Now, need I say more? Head on to Mrs Wharton London Bakes and English Tea at SM Southpoint, SM City Iloilo. Below: a selfie of me with Mrs. Wharton Vegan Cake. Mrs. Wharton is located at SM Southpoint, Mandurriao, Iloilo.
