Menu sound tempting?
The kids will think so and rightly so. This is the CHILDREN’S menu at BIKU Cafe in Seminyak, Bali and what kid doesn’t want a puppy-face cupcake put in front of them? Right?
There’s also FAIRY BREAD! Australia’s favourite sandwich – white bread smothered with butter and sprinkled with rainbow sprinkles? Sneak a piece when they are looking the other way!
The Children’s High Tea at BIKU CAFE is rounded out with one peanut butter finger sandwich, the sweetest gingerbread men you’ve ever seen, and fruit tea or juice.
Tell me more about Biku Cafe Restaurant in Seminyak
BIKU is a restaurant, tea lounge, home-wares and book store in Kerobokan, Bali. The setting of BIKU Cafe is as dreamy as the menu – Biku is housed in the comforting surrounds of a 150-year-old teak joglo from East Java.
High tea is their speciality and you can either have a traditional high tea, or an Asian high tea.
The burning question – Are kids really welcome at Biku Restaurant Cafe?
Yes. Kids are most welcome at BIKU Cafe, located on Jalan Petitenget in Seminyak.
This cafe/restaurant is very popular with large groups of women – sans children, so pick the right time. (Just after the lunch rush, and early afternoon is my suggestion.)
Make sure the kids are in a good mood, not likely to throw a tantrum, and happy to sit in a cafe for an hour or so, with fun food to eat, and colouring-in to keep them entertained.
It’s not a place where kids can run amok, although the staff are so polite, I’m sure they’d keep smiling no matter what.
For everybody’s benefit, we gently suggest that this Biku High Tea experience is for boys and girls over 5.
Jack was 3 1/2 when we visited, and in all honesty, I almost didn’t go in when I saw the clientele. I wasn’t sure how he’d behave, or if he could sit at a table happily for the duration. Luckily, he proved me wrong (just) and we made it through.
Would I take a 3 1/2 year old again? Never in a million years. But I’d love to head back with a bunch of girlfriends.
The Tempting Adults Menu at Biku Cafe Bali Seminyak
Adults have a couple of tempting High Tea Menus at Biku too.
There’s an Asian take on High Tea (my mouth was watering at the sound samosas, spring rolls, and orange cake with rose tea syrup plus other treats I couldn’t pronounce), but I stuck to the traditional one.
The traditional Biku High Tea Menu for adults includes:
- Your choice of Biku Teas
- The essential requirement of fluffy scones, jam and fresh cream
- Finger sandwiches – cucumber, ham and mustard, salmon and cream cheese
- A mini Spinach Quiche
- And a selection of Sweet Treats
Biku High tea is served on fine-bone china, and bubbles are available upon request for mamas who might like a little happy juice to keep them going for the afternoon.
For me, Roam the Gnome, and the kids, our Biku experience was a much-needed and happy respite from Indonesian food for the kids, and a little reminder of home. White bread sandwiches have never looked or tasted so good.
