Lola Nena’s: Triple Cheese Donuts (also available in classic)

Mix-Up Breadhaus: Milky Cheese Donuts


Lola Nena’s: 200 php per box | 8 pcs in each box

Mix-Up Breadhaus: 220 php per box | 20 pcs in each box


Lola Nena’s: Bought it in their Commonwealth branch; you can also pre-order online

Mix-Up Breadhaus: Got it from J&M Your Food Shoppe; they deliver around Metro Manila and CALABARZON


Lola Nena’s: Best eaten when hot to feel the melted cheese; there’s “umay” factor when eaten cold because the cheese will turn into a block of cheese; coated in sugar

Mix-Up Breadhaus: Small amount of cheese inside; the bread is tough when eaten cold (consume immediately); coated in powdered milk


  • Both are definitely good. Best paired with coffee!
  • Brings back the good old memories of our classic donuts from the bakery.
  • Both are messy to eat (sugar for Lola Nena’s and powdered milk for Mix-Up Breadhaus).
  • Price-wise, will definitely go for Mix-Up Breadhaus, for only 220 php, you can get 20 pcs donuts.
  • If you’re a cheese lover, go for Lola Nena’s.
