Cafe Moka has become an iconic place to go for a good cup of coffee with a nice piece of cake. This western-style bakery and cafe indeed makes delicious Illy coffee, cappuccino en latte. They are great bread bakers en pastry makers as well and what’s even better news, is that they serve outstanding breakfast sets. The only condition is you need to be hungry because the portions are wonderfully big! For around Rp 100,000 you can have a full American breakfast set with a basket of bread & homemade jam, eggs, ham, bacon or cheese for the vegetarians (just ask), a fresh fruit salad, a juice and a cup of coffee or tea. If that don’t satisfy your hungry belly, I don’t know what will 🙂 If you are more into sweets, go for the set with two pastry cakes of your choice or the healthy trekking breakfast with yoghurt and muesli. a great start makes a great day!

Go to one of the many street stalls (warungs) and get a nice plate of rice with veggies, chicken and why not, add some sambal too. It may take some time to get used to but after a while, you may be craving for it in the early morning like I do these days. Some nice warung for local food in Seminyak are Warung Murah (Balinese food stall Dhyana Pura) and Warung Eny (Petitenget).
