Houston is no stranger to drive-through donuts, but drive-thru cakes, buns and pastries?

Red Ribbon Bakery recently opened at 13421 Westheimer with a drive-thru feature for the bakery’s line of authentic Filipino cakes and sweet and savory pastries. Westheimer’s location (the second in Houston, including 8001 S. Main) is the first drive-thru of the brand’s 36 U.S. stores in the Philippines.

Red Ribbon specializes in cakes such as Mango Supreme (a three-layer white chiffon cake filled with cream and mango frosting and topped with mango pieces), Ube Overload (vibrant purple cake made with purple yam and frosted with white cream) and Yema Caramel (white chiffon cake filled with Philippine caramel custard). Red Ribbon also offers assorted chocolate cakes, jelly rolls, sweet pastries (mamon, Filipino sponge cake), and meat-stuffed empanadas.

Red Ribbon’s new Westheimer location is open daily from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. It also offers café-style seating in the patisserie which offers take-out selections.
