All day, every day Watercress serves up a delicious rustic breakfast. It's full of color, flavour and goodness. Inspired by the owner’s hometown, Byron Bay, which shares so much with Bali... good times, family, sun, sea and surf. It's never the wrong time for two perfectly poached eggs over crunchy chat potatoes, rosemary butter mushrooms and peppery rocket thrown together with goat cheese and balsamic reduction or perhaps free range poached eggs over crispy sweet corn fritters, chunky avocado salsa, chili jam, sour cream and grilled bacon. Seriously, it's that good.
Watercress Coffee Buzz
To say they take their coffee seriously would be an understatement. The latte glasses were hand carried from Australia because they couldn’t find the right size glasses in Indonesia. They work closely with acclaimed barista, Katie Allen from Revolver, arguably the best coffee in Bali, made from imported 100% Arabica from Colombia, Guatemala and Papua. The creamy milk comes from expat Australian cows living in Java (yes they have visa's). But most importantly we always pour a double ristretto. Simply put it's a single shot of coffee passing through a double hit of coffee grind... it means you only get pure golden crema goodness which makes for the best coffee, full of oils, aroma, richness and taste that a single shot simply won't give you. All this coffee snobery is pulled through a gorgeous retro 'la Marzocco' machine at the hands of some of Bali’s best baristas.
Home Made Cakes
Every morning while the roosters are still sleeping Monsieur Spoon wakes up at 4am and rolls out of bed. He does it for one reason only... his mad passion for baking the best croissants this side of Paris. They're crisp and flaky on the outside light and buttery on the inside... I’ve heard the word transcendental being used and that’s just the beginning... Moist carrot cake, creamy oreo cheese cake, flour less orange and almond cake, rich gooey lava cake with organic vanilla ice cream, salted caramel slices, pecan pie, and freshly baked cookies... all divine and all available every day at Watercress.
Famous Lunch Showcase
It's what got people talking about Watercress in the beginning when the original owners set up shop. A homage to the 'warung', a smorgasbord of organic color, fresh abundant salads, quiches, lasagnas, fresh fish and all things good and yummy. And it hasn’t been messed with, it's perfect just as it is, but be quick, it runs out pretty fast.
Ala Carte Lunch
As if the showcase wasn't enough, Watercress has an awesome ala carte menu, with fresh, healthy and super tasty options like plush salads, open sandwiches and big burgers... Try the wickedly good mahi mahi burger with crispy capers and sweet marinated peppers, or maybe a big salad bowl full of organic mixed greens roasted pumpkin and beetroot, pesto, couscous, goats cheese and more.
