Milk and Madu

Jl. Pantai Berawa No. 52 Canggu, Bali

Our first sweet stop is Milk & Madu. If you think ‘Milk & Honey’ sounds like a dreamy combo, you’re in for a treat. This family-friendly cafe is all about embracing the goodness of whole ingredients. While you may have heard their unheard-of breakfast menu (and fair enough!), their dessert game is just as strong. Their sticky date pudding, fresh from a lava stone oven, is a warm and ooey-gooey delight. Their Anzac apple pie with vanilla gelato? Pure heaven. But what sets them apart is Syrniki – a thick Ukrainian/Russian sweet cheese pancake, a rare treat in Canggu. Topped with fruit and ice cream, they create a unique flavour fusion. Where else can you find this in Canggu? Milk & Madu is a dessert adventure waiting to happen. YUM!
