I’ve wanted to visit Authentique French Bakery for quite some time, but since Kemang area is quite far from where we live, I haven’t got the chance to try it until recently. Apparently, Authentique French Bakery just moved from it’s previous location across Hero Kemang, but the new location was quite easy to find, it’s about 50 m from the old one.
As you approach Hero Kemang from Kemang Raya through Kemang Selatan 1, look for a white exterior with thatched roof on the left side of the road. The outside terrace sitting is designated for smoking customers. The interior of the bakery/cafe is very bright and cheerful with the smell of freshly baked bread wafting through the air. I instantly fell in love with this place.
There’s an array of assorted bread and pastry to choose from, all look appetizing, but since I just had breakfast, I only ordered canelé, brownies and some kind of peach pie to sample. I like the canele very much, it tasted like a custard cake, but more dense and had the right sweetness. SC like the brownies very much. It has a very moist texture which is what we always look for in brownies. The pie was also good, but I felt it was too sweet for my palate. I noticed that a lot of the customers were buying their baguette. Since I only bought their sourdough bread (it tasted superb, btw), I’ll have more reasons to drag SC back here to try their breakfast menu 🙂
