Honey & Bread Tea Room
Forget the land of milk and honey, if it’s quality food, a bright and breezy atmosphere and a spot of tea you’re after, then look no further than Honey & Bread Tea Room.
Sidled up next door to the newly opened Pepito’s supermarket on the Nusa Dua By Pass, Honey & Bread presents the perfect venue for breakfast, lunch and light dinner, and due to its location, is ideal for commuters to stop off for a takeaway bite to eat.
The distressed wooden interior and country kitchen knick knacks give the feel of a contemporary English café, with nice little touches like menus hung on the back of every chair and jars of colourful stuff dotted about the shelves adding to the overall ambience.
The menu is a concise affair, with just the right amount of choice from each section including salads, sandwiches, pancakes, gelatos muffins and a few Asian specialties thrown in for good measure.
As well as a mouthwatering assortment of cakes and pastries, unsurprisingly there is a huge selection of fresh baked European style bread on offer, as well as a dedicated menu of specialty honey sourced from throughout Indonesia. Forget the sugar and sweeten your tea with the finest Balinese, Java or Sumbawan madu. Alternatively, you can also takeaway your own 200ml glass jar of bee juice for less than 100k.
And that’s not all – Honey & Bread’s real trump card lies in its menu of over 30 loose-leaf teas. Served in quaint, retro style China cups with classy polished silver teapots, choose from a medley of black and green teas, perfumed blends, herbal infusions, Indonesian tips and iced varieties for those with a thirst that needs quenching pronto.
For my first visit to Honey & Bread, I make a beeline straight for one of their special signature drinks (26k+). Made with iced tea, honey, fresh fruit, sorbet and plenty of ice, they are about as cool and refreshing as sticking your head in a freezer.
Meanwhile I let my pot of vanilla green tea (29k+) gently steep as I order up the chef’s salad (35k+) – a generously sized portion indeed, comprising of iceberg lettuce, tomatoes and hard boiled miniature eggs topped with slivers of cheese and beef ham with a side of thousand island dressing.
Rounding off my light lunch I check out the Antoinette Galette (35k+) – a kind of crispy savoury crepe topped with salad that contains sautéed mushrooms, cherry tomatoes, garlic and mozzarella.
Honey & Bread is open from 8am to 10pm every day, with a book swap happening every Saturday, not to mention free WiFi for those who need to stay connected.
