Welcome to Baso


Bruno Baso is a pastry brand that offers a luxurious blend of Belgian and French pastry set in a cozy atmosphere in the center of Kigali. "Baso" is the abbreviation of the Bruno's last name: Basomingera.

Born in Belgium to a Rwandan father and Belgian mother, Bruno grew up with a taste for fine food. At the age of 12 he enrolled at CERIA, the top culinary school to pursue bakery, pastry and chocolate production. He later joined Nihoul's as an apprentice and continued to work with the top Belgian Chocolate house for 10 years serving as a turning point in his career.

Upon moving back to Rwanda in late 2011, he was driven to share his professional skills and contribute to the development of fine pastry and chocolate, a sector that was still untapped in the country. He began a pastry atelier "Chez Baso" serving made to order cakes and tarts. A little over a year into business, Bruno had built a customer base with reputation of excellence and creativity within the sector. The atelier transitioned into "Brioche", a pastry - coffee shop where Bruno served as co-founder and pastry chef/head of product and head of production. After two years he returned to Belgium in preparation for the arrival of his first child. While in Belgium, he perfected his technique and planning of the next project: Baso. His mission is to contribute to the local and regional industry and in the long term open a pastry school in Rwanda.
