I found out Monsieur Spoon more than nine months ago, and since then it has been SC and I must-go place whenever we’re in Bali. Monsieur Spoon is an artisan French bakery based in Bali. They already have three branches in Umalas, Canggu and Oberoi, serving assorted viennoiserie (various croissant selections, chocolatine, raisin swirl, apple chausson, broiche, madeleine, gallete de rois, kouign amann and palmier), tarts/tartlets, bread & buns.
The first time we visited Monsieur Spoon was at Jl. Umalas 2. It is a small shop, but nicely decorated and feels cozy. There were lots of pastries and cakes that looks very appetizing. I went crazy ordering those amazing tartlets. I remember I trying the chocolate, caramel and lemon meringue tartlets that cost about 15K each. They were as delicious as they looked. After that, I ordered their apple chausson, palmier, kouign amann, financier and madeleine, all tasted very good. Unfortunately (or fortunately, depending on your perspective), we just had a big breakfast before coming to Monsieur Spoon, so we had to stop.
About three months ago, we went back to Bali and of course Monsieur Spoon was in our itinerary. This time, we visited their Oberoi shop. We came after breakfast at Sea Circus and just wanted to sit down before going for lunch. So I only ordered strawberry, salted caramel & lemon meringue tartlets with a shot of wheatgrass. While the tartlets were as good as I remembered, I can finally understand why so many people hate wheatgrass. I guess I’ll just stick with coffee next time.
I still want to visit Monsieur Spoon when I return to Bali. I’ve read about their breakfast, but never have a chance to try it yet, so that’s my next target.
