The Bukit Cafe Bali is a welcomed addition to the chilled out Uluwatu scene, one of my absolutely favourite places to hang out in Bali. Serving up healthy and delicious meals, juices and coffees, we were really impressed with this place. I have to admit I was totally sucked in by an Instagram photo of a hot guy with abs enjoying a Pitaya and Banana Smoothie Bowl here only to discover it wasn’t actually on the menu. However when I showed them what I had been day dreaming about ( hahaha the smoothie Bowl of course) they whipped one up for us to enjoy and hopefully its on the menu really soon. We have been back a few times as the boys are tots addicted to the Hot Chocolate Lava cake YUM YUM YUM ! We can highly recommend this place if your up this way. Now added to the Breakfast and Brunch section of the Little Miss Bali App.
Its too easy to get comfortable in Bali and return to your much loved spots. I almost had to drag a girlfriend out here to expand her repertoire faves. Located on Jl Pantai Berawa ( about 10 minutes north of Seminyak, and close proximity to Bermain and Bungalow Living so perfect for a little shopping when your up this way). Milk & Madu is a breezy spacious café to enjoy some delicious food and Revolver coffee. Grab some magazines, log into the wifi and chill out on the spacious, comfy lounge areas or join the communal table and strike up a convo with a stranger. Word on the street is they are building a gorgeous play ground area in the near future and they do have a great kids menu and a box of toys and heaps of space if your taking little ones ( however no high chairs as yet ). The menu is so delicious I had to try both a sweet and savoury option hahaha ( yes we had been for a uber long and sweaty beach walk that morning so had earn’t it). I think its worth the drive and if you are in the hood, def pop in and check it out. A new fave to add to the list. Milk & Madu is open Tuesday – Sunday 7am – 5pm.
I do like to day dream and I kind of imagine this place is what heaven might be like. Kayuputi at the The St. Regis Bali Resort is just perfect in every sense and I could not have asked for a better place to celebrate my 40th Birthday. This 4 time Wine Spectator Award winning fine dining restaurant offers the most wondrous brunch your mind can imagine. Every Sunday serving Asian inspired haute cuisine with an opulent yet inviting atmosphere. This sea side Brunch includes complimentary aperitif and champagne or juice in the bar from 11 – 12 noon. The actual brunch runs from 12 – 3. For 1.100 000Rup Per person and Beverage packages from 995.00 per person inclusive of champagne, world class premium wines, cocktails digestives and cigars ( it’s worth it) . Seating is limited and a reservation is a must. Approximately 20 courses of the most visually exquisite and tastebud pleasing dishes are presented at your table. You can order off of the sensational al la cart menu also. Don’t be put off if you have not heard of or can’t pronounce half of the menu, I couldn’t either, however I can reassure you it was all amazing. Pace yourself as you may just explode if you try the lot. I loved it when the manager greeted us and provided a rundown of how this brunch works, I apologised for my husband who was enjoying the “huge, pumping, swell and would join us soon” Harold commented “his loss “as the staff handed me the most delicious champagne ever and I thought to myself, this is not your average brunch buffet no no no. Harold explained we can just wave anything away that we didn’t want as it was offered at our table, however my eager gang was willing to try the lot. These angels in white (highly professional wait people) just subtly appear in front of you, with some of the courses being prepared at the table with a theatrical like visual display. The caviar, the tuna, the beef was all sublime, however my favourite part was ‘The Bounty” a coconut sorbet with dark chocolate. I was totally spoilt with a huge bunch of stunning roses and also totally embarrassed as all the staff sang to “Happy Birthday” to me. Even the toilets are stunning in this place and I did take my phone in to sneak a shot of the waterfall just for you guys. Oh and I almost forget to mention your children aged 4 and up can be safely minded in the Child Learning Centre for the duration of this experience. Start Saving now as this experience is a MUST DO if you are in Bali. http://www.kayuputirestaurant.com/sunday-brunch.

Born out of the need for seriously good coffee, Grocer and Grind has been delivering quality service, coffee and food for over 7 years. The Seminyak flagship store is popular spot of mine for a glass of red and its sensational meals all day long. Particularly when my boys were smaller as it is one of the first places to open in the morning and they love to feed the huge fish at the entrance. It was awesome when they opened a café on the Bukit, it just makes the all day surf trips more tolerable with a coffee in my belly. Most recently making a welcome glamorous addition to the scene in Sanur, long term holiday makers who prefer that side of the island, welcomed the fresh ground and expertly created coffee and bite to eat. Grocer and Gring has just opened its doors next to the hugely anticipated Sea Sentosa in Echo Beach. I know some of you will be incredibly nostalgic like me about the area and will reminisce about when it was just s tiny shack on the beach with an incredibly awful toilet. Yep the area has evolved and as long as its as classy and quality like this place who am I to stand in the way of development. Enjoy the cool air con inside or breezy outside option, with superfast free wifi and some tasty offerings on the menu, check it out if your in the area x
I really love Sea Circus on Jl. Kaya Ayu [Oberoi Rd] in Seminyak, I find it really versatile in that its beautiful for breakfast, lunch, tapas’ and dinner, or even just for ice cream or coffee. They do really good cocktails also and throw the most amazing parties and functions. It has one of the most famous bathrooms on the island with many patrons stopping to take a selfy ( a photo of oneself with your own phone) in the beautiful mirror. I love to pop in after a massage with Ifa at Bodyworks and a spot of shopping at Mist or The Bali Boat Shed.
Make sure you pop in on if your close by I promise you will keep coming back. xxx
