Jaje Cafe Review, Ubud Bali

The Jaje coffee shop, pastry and bakery is located on the south end of Jl monkey forest. It is a small cute looking cafe with friendly staff in green hats waiting to serve you.

The menu was quite interesting. I was tempted with the garlic bread or bruschetta considering they are a bakery with probably nice bread, but surprise surprise I chose the lumpia (chicken spring rolls). Probably a bad choice as they were over cooked. The sweet chili sauce that came with them was pretty good though I prefer when they come with a Balinese peanut sauce.

For a main I went with Ayam Palelang (sp?), shredded chicken breast with a Balinese sauce (samal matah). Very nicely presented dish, though not enough chicken for me.

They serve Illy coffee, which is always good. I went with an iced coffee, which came with liquid sugar syrup to sweeten it myself.

There are nice desert choices on display of your want something more, or something to go with your coffee.

 

The prices are pretty standard for this part of town, about 40,000 ($4 for mains), not a bad option if you want to try somewhere new.
