5. Folie Kitchen and Patisserie

Still on the hush hush side, Folie Kitchen and Patisserie is the result of the love of good food by chef Stephane Simond. They have been doing catering and selling their cakes at coffee shop like Simply Brew in Sanur. Then, by popular demands, they decided to open their own shop in Canggu. It’s going to be fabulous, because we know for a fact even their small bites and canapes are amazing. We can’t wait for the kitchen to open so we get to taste the full menu sometime on the third week of June.
