Pair these Balinese delicacies with Iced Klepon Latte (onde onde latte) and Iced Strawberry Coffee. I love washing down Indonesian spices with either lattes or milk tea – it neutralises the spice (if your tummy is a bit sensitive to spicy food like mine) and is a lovely end to a delicious meal.

And of course, don’t forget to order their signature croissants and pastries too.

Photo Via: Eatswithrney, Vykahanjani

I usually sit indoors, especially in the afternoons (Bali’s heat can be a bit much!) – the interiors are elegant and very comfortable. But if you don’t mind the heat, their outdoor seatings offer beautiful views of the paddy fields.
