Hubs and I were totally spoilt for choice in Sanur! There were so many cafes that we had a tough time deciding which one to go to. So we checked out reviews on Google and decided to visit Bread Basket in the heart of Sanur for some tasty pastries~! (@´ー`)ノ゙

Why We Chose Bread Basket in Sanur

Besides basing our decision on reviews found on Google, we eventually decided on Bread Basket because I was craving croissants for breakfast! After an unexpectedly great experience at Monsieur Spoon on our last trip to Seminyak, I wanted something similar. And that is a simple yet delicious croissant for breakfast. So when I came across Bread Basket on Google Maps and saw the pastries they offered, I told hubs we should check it out. (ᵔ◡ᵔ)

What We Ordered at Bread Basket Sanur

First Experience with Egg Coffee

Instead of our usual Flat White, hubs and I decided to try something different this time! We went for the Creamy Egg Espresso and Frappe Cappucino. ( ´ ω ` ) Not knowing that we would be travelling to Vietnam in a few months, I was drawn to the egg coffee on the menu and decided to order it, considering it was our first time seeing it in a cafe.

It was my first time drinking it, so I didn’t know what to expect. I drank the coffee straightaway, without stirring, and was caught off guard by the sweetness of the top layer of thick cream. But luckily, there was the espresso, so it blended really well together. But alas, there was only so much of the creamy egg foam, and I was left with quite some espresso. That was when “disaster” hit, as the espresso was way too strong to enjoy by itself. HAHA! Silly me should have mixed the creamy layer with the espresso! (*/ω\) So, I did not finish the espresso because it was too strong and bitter. LOL.

The frappe cappuccino, on the other hand, was rather normal. It tastes exactly what you would expect of a cup of ice-blended cappuccino. Luckily, hubs ordered this since I was left with nothing to drink after my cup was left with only espresso in it. (´・ᴗ・ ` ) Anyway, egg coffee is mainly found in Vietnam. So it was interesting to see it offered in a cafe in Bali. If you are curious about what it tastes like, try it here! (´• ω •`)

Simple and Delicious Croissant Sandwich

I ordered something croissant-related since I was craving croissants! I wanted something simple, but there wasn’t such an item on the menu. Luckily, Bread Basket Sanur had a Build Your Own Sandwich category, so I decided to make my own “sandwich” by having a croissant as the base. I went with the Ham & Cheese with Croissant as the base and added on mushrooms. It was nice to have all my favourite ingredients in the croissant, and I couldn’t wait for it to be served. (★ω★)

The presentation was absolutely delicious when it was served, and after taking the first bite, I was blown away as it tasted so darn good! The croissant was fluffy and flaky, while the cheese was nicely melted. The saltiness of the ham and cheese was well balanced with the mushrooms. It was such a simple item but tasted oh-so-heavenly to me. (´꒳`)♡ Hubs, on the other hand, ordered the Waffle Rumble. I think it would be better if the bacon were slightly crispier. But generally, it was okay; it was a safe breakfast item if you were unsure what to have for breakfast. (ᵔ◡ᵔ)

So Many Yummy-Looking Pastries!

When you walk into the cafe, you can’t help staring at the number of yummy-looking baked goods displayed at the counter. While hubs was making payment after we finished our breakfast, I was lured by the pastries, even though we just finished eating! Haha! Ultimately, we got a Chocolate Croissant and Garlic Pretzel to bring back to our villa. (っ˘ڡ˘ς)

The display of baked goods at the counter

I don’t think I have come by pretzel in Bali before. So when I set eyes on the garlic pretzel, I wanted to bring one back to our villa! And boy oh boy, it was so good! The garlic powder on the pretzel made it extra tasty. And considering it was our last breakfast in Sanur before we moved on to Batu Belig, I was feeling a bit sad I couldn’t have more of it. (´-ω-`) It has been a while since I had some from Auntie Anne’s, but I think it was similar. But the one from Bread Basket Sanur was slightly more doughy.

Things Worth Mentioning about Bread Basket Sanur

Weak Air-Conditioning in the Cafe

When we arrived at Bread Basket Sanur, there were still many tables to choose from. Initially, we wanted to sit indoors. But sadly, the air-conditioning was relatively weak, and it got a bit too stuffy, so we decided to move outdoors. I am not sure if it has always been like that, considering the weather in Sanur could get crazy hot in the afternoon. But given a choice, it would be better to sit indoors for the reasons mentioned in the next part.

Roaming Dogs and Mosquitoes

Maybe I was lucky, but on our trips to Bali, I hardly got bitten by mosquitoes. So I was annoyed that I got two mosquito bites just by sitting outdoors here! Of all places, I did not expect to get bitten at a cafe. ٩(× ×)۶

And then, halfway into our meal, a dog approached our table with sad-looking eyes. I assumed it was hungry, but I didn’t dare look at it because I am scared of dogs! I always try to avoid them, so I did not expect one to come so close to me. (x_x) It was not aggressive. The dog sat there, hoping that we would give it food. Luckily, another table of diners called it over, or it would have been one hell of a challenging meal to finish.

The outer seating as well as a look into the interior of Bread Basket in Sanur

For those who want to visit Bali and fear dogs, note that you will likely come across many dogs roaming around. We experience more of them in Sanur than in Seminyak or Ubud. They were outside restaurants and shops or even at the beach walk. They are generally not aggressive and mind their own business, though occasionally, some would bark from a distance. But if you have food on hand, I think they might approach to get fed. So, it’s just something to take note of!

Anyway, with these two incidences, I regretted sitting outdoors at Bread Basket Sanur. I would rather stay in a stuffy interior than have mosquito bites or get approached by dogs. I should remind myself that this should be the way to go in the future. (´-ω-`)

Overall Experience at Bread Basket in Sanur

The cafe was almost full when we left Bread Basket around 10.15 AM. So, if you want to drop by for breakfast, come earlier if you don’t want to be stuck with no seats! If you are immune to dogs and mosquitoes, outdoor seating should be fine. For those like me, make sure to hide indoors! (´• ω •`)ノ
