Starbucks in Ubud, Bali

Starbuck’s attempt to blend in with the local surroundings. Their location in Ubud is in the design of a traditional Balinese structure, located on the side of a lily pond.

It seem enormous but only the first floor is open, and there are not many seats. In true Balinese fashion the furniture is wooden, minimalistic, and sparse. Tall ceiling and wide open spaces seem to be the mark of interior design in these parts.

I ordered an Iced French Vanilla Latte, which was being advertised at the time. MY image of French vanilla is that is should be sweeter than regular vanilla, but this drink was quite bitter. I also felt like the chocolate sauce topping did not compliment the drink. 

Pandan Coconut Brulle Cake! A local specialty!
