Vintage style café and cookie factory
A love story
When the Japanese Toshidanaka San met Say in Bali in 1997, it was love at first sight and he knew he wanted to stay. A few years ago the couple’s dream came true and they opened Barong Cookie shop. Say only uses local ingredients to create some unique flavours. Her cookies are available throughout Bali and make the perfect gift to bring home. (Boxes start at IDR 40.000).
This shabby Chic café has served up wonderful pastries, coffee, and delicious juice concoctions since 2015. The specialty here is the coffee. They roast single origin beans from Kintamani (1.5 hours north of Ubud), on sight. The owners of the café are also avid antique collectors, and the interior is lined with colourful repurposed window shutters, sewing tables and old lanterns.
It is a wonderful place to camp out on the comfy patio with a book, and watch the day go by. The lunch and dinner menu have an Italian flair featuring pizza and pasta, but truly, most people come for the coffee and banana chocolate cake (IDR 45.000).
