Monsieur Spoon's cakes are always amazing eventho their coffee was not really good. The staffs were always busy and unattentive to local customer. Always came here to get the cakes and its ricefields view!!

Great coffee and beautiful outdoor space
Love this place. You can eat and drink in air conditioned comfort, or sit outside in their lovely space overlooking a rice field. You wouldn't guess you were close to a busy main road. Service is always friendly and professional, coffee is great and their bread can purchased to take home. Lovely pastries.

High expectations dashed
Monsieur Spoon has a pretty high rating on Zomato and other sites, but sadly my experience wasn’t really up to expectations. Nothing wrong with the service, decor or ambience. It’s a nice space, filled with delicious smells of fresh French baking. The lighting is good, with some nice feature lights around the place. There’s a good number of varied seating options, and a beautiful view of luscious green rice paddies out the large windows at the rear of the restaurant, which also has a shaded seating area. I ordered bacon and poached eggs, which came with some caramelised onions and a couple of cherry tomatoes on a lettuce leaf. The bacon was super crispy, and had that taste and feel of bacon that’s been cooked and held for too long before plating up. With my temporary crowns, it made for slow and nervous eating. The eggs were perfectly poached though. The breakfast was served on a small wooden cheeseboard, which is both unhygienic and impossible to keep hot food warm. Thus, my meal was cold in no time (but I doubt the bacon was very hot to begin with). In many countries, the use of wooden boards for service are banned, due to problems in properly sterilising them, and this has led to incidents of serious food poisoning. Please save the trendy boards for serving cheese and other cold/room temperature items, and serve hot food on the hot plates it deserves. My Bali juice of watermelon, papaya (?) and melon was served in the ubiquitous mason jar, and was fairly bland (maybe too bland for my admittedly sweet tooth). The cappuccino was lukewarm, and the coffee art had lost some of its appearance, probably due to waiting too long for delivery. Apart from this, the flavour was pretty average, and I’m not a fan of drinking my coffees from ramekins. To finish on a positive note, the prices here are very reasonable 35k for coffee (5k for honey on the side), 30k for juice, 55k for bacon and eggs, and prices include GST and no service charge = Rp125,000. So try your luck, and hopefully you’ll do a little better than I did.
