After the delicious meal of Babi Guling at the Warung earlier, my friends and I decided to do something a little less typical of the usual Bali itinerary. We decided to go cafe hopping! In this run, my colleague picked some of Bali’s top cafes and we were pleasantly surprised how well presented some of these places are.
First stop was Livingstone, Kerobokan.
This industrial building is a full time bakery that serves up some interesting lunches. But after that heavy meal earlier, we were contented with fries and drinks. While I cannot say much about the food, Livingstone in Kerobokan sure has a great environment to catch up with good friends!
Drinks stretched the whole page length. For the group, we had Matcha Latte, Avocado Chocolate Shake, and two juices!
Once we were done with that, we moved to our next spot just round the corner from where Livingstone is. It’s another Patisserie but this time, with a touch of class. Its Angelita Tea Salon and Patisserie.
Angelita was a place that I would not normally visit because as my colleague suggests, its a little “Princess-sy”. But that is alright, I was in no way deterred to try it out! Compared to Livingstone, everything here was very very well presented and finished like a pro.
Once you have decided to sit in the air-conditioned cafe or out in their open garden, it is finally time to pick your cakes. We shared two pastries’s amongst the four of us. One was the Salted Egg Croissant (not pictured) and the other was an Early Grey cake, look how pretty it was!
But looks was just part of the story. Its fragrant tea smell was amazing even before I ate it. The cream in the cake was light and the sponge in there sweetened just right. In the centre was an delicious vanilla filling. All of which complemented each other perfectly. Just before I slept that night, I thought to myself it was a really good cake! Still thinking of the bergamot!

While this was barely the most eventful afternoon, all the jokes and Pokemon Go talk really brought back memories of when we first started. So if you are not craving for the sea breeze and prefer a nice cosy indoor to spend the afternoon in, keep in mind that Livingstone and Angelita are good options to sit back and just chill!
