Ever since my internet at home is slowing down (boo you), I’ve been on a quest to find Bali’s best coffee shop. So far, Faculty has been my favourite. I fell in love with this place from the first time I came here. After my first encounter, I’ve been coming here 3 times a week!
Relaxed atmosphere, chic interior, friendly staff, best chill music (I swear I have all the songs on my playlist) and most importantly, delicious food and coffee! What else do I need in a coffeeshop?
Faculty is never too busy, it always had the perfect amount of customers. You never had any troubles communicating with your friends, or even work on your laptop without any earphones. That’s how relaxed the atmosphere is. I’ve even come here for my work interview via Skype. If I ever need to work on my writing or just anything, Faculty would be where you would find me. In contrary to other coffee shops, Faculty is really spacey. You’ll gonna have no problem finishing that writing or reading that book.
Located at the second floor of Living Stone, it is right at the intersection of Petitenget and Batubelig, it’s so easy to find. Right on the second floor you’ll find BURO, a retail store for all young and trendy people out there. A combined shopping, coffee, and food, what’s not to like?
Upon entering the stairs to the coffeeshop, you’ll see how beautifully designed this coffee shop is. Every little detail is carefully thought. If you appreciate alluring interior design and artsy approach, then Faculty is surely a place you shouldn't miss. Every corner of Faculty is instagramable, wherever you point your camera at. I lost count at how many people here were snapping pictures here and there either with their cameraphone or DSLRs. The place is that pretty!
I love a good coffee, who doesn’t? Faculty has a range of coffee drinks that you could choose from. My favourite? Caffeinated Cashews (Rp.40.000) its cold espresso, cashew nut, house made cashew nut syrup with soymilk. I love it so much that I don’t open the menu anymore when I want coffee. One Caffeinated Cashews for me!
You know how some coffeeshops only had good drinks and cakes? Faculty actually serve a good variety of mouthwatering foods, made with fresh ingredients! I tried their salmon and look just how appetising it looks! Everything here is farm-fresh, and aesthetically pleasing both for the case and presentation. I also had their fried tofu balls, sooooo good!
Next time around, I’ll try their duck confit burger with skinny fries! Been hearing good reviews about that. Can’t wait!
