Hatch 22 Cafe & Bakery: Rockwell's Newest Neighborhood Cafe

Finally. A neighborhood cafe offering all-day dining at Rockwell. Now there's a place where you can start and end your Hatch 22 Cafe & Bakery. 

Bite-sized versions of Hatch 22 Cafe & Bakery's signature dishes.
Inspired by Heller's classic satire, the name is a word play on Catch-22, but instead of the frustrating cycle of no-win situations, Hatch 22 Cafe & Bakery offers an extensive menu with "food and drink versatility" to match your mood "with every passing hour," ending with cocktails "before hatching again the following day." Sounds like my kind of place...

Located at the ground floor of Rockwell's Powerplant Mall, Hatch 22 Cafe & Bakery offers an all-day dining experience with its bakery, cafe and a bar serving fresh fruit juices, wine and some real cool cocktails.

Open daily from 7am to 1am, you can enjoy Hatch 22 Cafe & Bakery's signature breakfasts and brunch, hang out for lunch or a late afternoon snack, an early dinner and even end the evening with cocktails. And just like a neighborhood cafe, Hatch 22 Cafe & Bakery is the place for an all-day dining experience.

Erwan Heussaff welcomes guests to Hatch 22 Cafe & Bakery, as the kitchen prepares bite-sized versions of their signature dishes. The mini portions are perfect, allowing you to sample Hatch 22 Cafe & Bakery's extensive line of signature dishes.

A refreshing watermelon, ginger and apple juice blend starts your Hatch 22 Cafe & Bakery experience. 100% fresh and all-natural, just a preview of more good things to come.

A basket of freshly baked bread is served, featuring some of Hatch 22 Cafe & Bakery's signature items, including Butter Brioche, cheese rolls, a Muscovado roll and sourdough bread. Here's a sneak preview of Hatch 22 Cafe & Bakery's signature dishes, in bite-sized servings...

Tomato and Chickpea Soup, served in espresso cups, with roasted tomatoes, mixed bread croutons, chickpeas, Lucban sausage, and fried basil. Rich, hearty and comforting, the local Lucban longaniza adds that perfect hint of saltiness that pairs well with the thick and creamy tomato and chickpeas (for more on Hatch 22's signature dishes in regular servings, check out my post here at

Falafel Salad, mixed greens with golden falafel, goat cheese, tomatoes, cucumbers, olives, red beets, lemon oil, and black olives.

Fresh flavors in a tiny package, reflecting Catch 22 Cafe & Bakery's diverse menu, influenced by different flavors from all over the world.

Hatch 22's McHatch, inspired by the fastfood chain's breakfast muffins, with breakfast sausage patty topped with egg, strawbery jam, and cheddar cheese. The bite-sized versions feature mini-muffins with sausage topped by a quail egg and a crunchy strip of bacon, and you can easily go for two or three in one go.

The Walowitz, homemade corned beef beef brisket, red sauerkraut, Swiss cheese, black pepper aioli, whole grain mustard and dill pickles. The bite-sized versions may be small, but each piece just packs so much flavor, can't wait to try the regular sized order soon.

Croque Maserati, open-faced brioche french toast topped with seared salmon fillet, sous vide egg, mornay sauce, lemon thyme oil, and black caviar. Rich, creamy flavors on a crunchy brioche...perfect.

Monkey Business, buttermilk pancakes topped with caramelized bananas, chunky peanut butter, candied walnuts, cinnamon, caramel and marshmallows. It's amazing how Hatch 22 Cafe & Bakery's kitchen downsized the buttermilk pancakes, with a stack of three miniaturized pancakes topped with walnuts and even mini-marshmallows, exactly like the regular-sized dish.

Cannoli, just one of the many desserts offered by Hatch 22 Cafe & Bakery. Paired with a good cup of coffee, just can't get better than that. Hatch 22 Cafe & Bakery offers an extensive range of baked desserts, including cookies and brownies.

The bite-sized versions of Hatch 22 Cafe & Bakery's signature dishes were perfect, as I was able sample quite a number and experience Hatch 22's unique cafe style cuisine by Chef Pete Ayson.
