Monsieur Spoon – The cutest coffee spot

 

Monsieur Spoon is a bakery in the middle of Canggu with a French twist. Sometimes when you are far away from home it’s nice to have a little bit of a homely feeling. And what is a better way to get a taste of home then through food. 

As soon as you enter the bakery you can smell the fresh coffee being made. Fresh croissants are taken out of the oven, and if you are lucky you might be in time to get a taste of their very special black croissants. Everything about this place will make you feel at home and it’s the ultimate spot to relax and take a break by enjoying a delicious cup of coffee. 

 

 

What I like

I come here very often just for a cup of coffee. As a coffee freak I have been on a hunt for the best coffee in Canggu. I have tried many cafes and Monsieur Spoon is definitely in my top 3! I always order a ‘Cappuccino‘ with soya milk (35k Idr/ 1.80 Gbp). The coffee is fruity and strong. Also, most importantly it’s not at all bitter or watery – and that’s the way I like it! (And that’s the way it’s also supposed to be) So I can honestly say “This is one of my favourite coffee spots in the whole of Bali!”. 

Breakfast

They also have delicious freshly made cold pressed juices which are full of vitamins and their ‘Green detox‘ (40k Idr/ 2.10 Gbp) juice is amazing in the morning. However, when I’m at a French cafe I like to go for a traditional ‘Orange juice’ (30k Idr/ 1.60 Gbp) which is made out of 100% fresh and sweet oranges.  If you are staying for breakfast then you might as well have the ‘Avocado Bruschetta‘ (55k Idr/ 2.90 Gbp) which is a chunky piece of bread with smashed avocado, cherry tomatoes and topped with coriander – healthy, delicious and a great way to start the day! 

Lunch

For lunch I love getting the ‘Gazpacho‘ (40k Idr/ 2.10 Gbp). It’s made with fresh tomatoes and served with chunky bread. It’s extremely refreshing which is perfect for on those hot Bali days. 

However, what I mostly do is grab a cappuccino and some of their delicious freshly made bread and be on my way home! The bread is made daily and is a real treat for a breakfast lover like me!

My all time favourite coffee in Canggu, Bali

 

Your sleepy eyes slowly open, your are comfortable. That feeling you get when waking up in a warm cosy bed hasn’t left your mind yet. A breeze flows through your hair as you take your first sip of hot coffee. It warms you up inside and leaves you speechless for a second as you enjoy that first sip full of flavour. For me, this is a moment of pure happiness.

Since I moved to Canggu in Bali I have been looking for the perfect cup of coffee to create these moments of happiness every morning. After many cups in many different cafes I have finally found the cafe that never lets me down and always leaves me in my coffee dreamland.

Welcome to Satu Satu, my little piece of coffee heaven.

‘Banana Chia Jug’ and coconut cappuccino –Satu Satu

 

Satu Satu is a cute cafe in which you feel cosy the moment you walk in. The smell of freshly baked croissants and grounded coffee fills the air. Apart for the coffee I also absolutely love going for breakfast here. My two favourite meals are the ‘Banana chia jug’ (40k Idr/ 2.10 pounds) and the ‘Satu Satu style porridge’ (40k Idr/ 2.10 pounds).

Both meals are the ultimate breakfasts to have on any day. Full of delicious goodness to keep you energised! The ‘Banana Chia Jug’ is made with a papaya smoothie, banana, chia seeds and topped with coconut and granola. Its fresh, healthy and delicious!

The ‘Satu Satu style porridge’ is made from oatmeal, quinoa, chia seeds, banana and coconut milk topped with fresh fruit, granola and served with caramelised banana. Honestly every spoonful is an explosion of flavours. Its also an extremely healthy start of the day and this meal will keep you energised and full throughout the morning.

 

 

Now, about their coffee. At Satu Satu they make their own coconut milk which is absolutely delicious. I found that many cafes in Canggu use a very oily coconut milk, which I am not a fan off. It overpowers the coffee taste and leaves an oily after taste. However, when coconut milk is home-made it usually is amazing. Perfect for a cappuccino! If you are a coffee lover like I am then you will be happy to hear that they offer 3 different cup sizes here – small, medium and LARGE! (For those Monday mornings)

 

 

My regular is a large cappuccino with coconut milk and it fulfils my coffee dreams every time! The coffee itself is full of flavour. Its rich and smooth. Its not bitter but has a little sweet after taste. Unlike usual Bali coffee its not watery at all and actually has rather strong flavours. Mix it with some milk, especially their freshly home-made coconut milk and you have yourself a match made in heaven!
