Places to go : pretty dessert all the way

Pretty dessert is a new lifestyle for most of Jakarta people. Pretty cakes on beautiful plate is surely a great companion for those evenings with the beloved one. Many cafes and restaurants try to satisfy the needs, but only some of them that could bring me back for a plate for their dessert.

JJ Royal Bistro/ Brasserie
Lower Ground Senayan City/ Lower Ground Lotte Shopping Avenue 
A newest addition in town. Their cronut is really something to die for. Crunch outside and sticky inside, yes, that's just the cronut I need. The raspberry one has the vanilla filling which is scrumptious, and the caramel one has caramel filling which is such a sweetheart and of course, sweeter. For a fan of bread and butter pudding, Berry berry good sundae is a must. Soft croissant butter on the bottom with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and raspberry on top, not to mention a pinch of almond too. A very very good one indeed. Psst! They have wide selections of cake on the display!

Union Brasserie
Ground floor, Plaza Senayan / Street Gallery, PIM
My first choice for an afternoon with pretty cakes. I am not a cake person, but their cake is truly an exceptional. Red Velvet, was such a winner since 2011, and still on the top of the list. Moist cake with fragrant and tasty cream cheese and Union's signature peanut on top and every layer on it. PB n J, stands for peanut butter and jelly, was caught my heart on the first bite. The peanut butter, strawberry jam, and dance beautifully in my mouth. They also have their own cronut, called flaky doughnut, which is served in 3 flavors. The vanilla chocolate is my favorite so far. The vanilla filling inside is really tasteful.

Jl. Senopati no 80, Jakarta Selatan
Prettily stand on the busy street of Senopati area, such a great place to spread the sweetness. Their Cacaote cake, with Chocolate glaze on top, chocolate sponge and mousse, caramelized nuts on the bottom is a perfect match for the sweet-tooth. Their fruit tart,on the other hand,offers the freshness of the fruit and not-too-overwhelming sweetness from the fla.

Jl. Kemang Raya no 72, Kemang Jakarta / Jl. Mahakam 1 no 2, Blok M Jakarta
Koi offers good food, but their dessert, in this case I mean the Apple crumble, is amazing. A warm baked caramelized apple on the bottom, buttery crumble on top, scoop of ice cream, and caramel syrup for extra sweetness. This really is the best apple crumble in town!

Ninety Nine
Jl. Pesanggrahan Raya no 2, Ranch Market Pesanggrahan, Jakarta Barat / Lower Ground East Mal Grand Indonesia / Lower Ground, Lotte Shopping Avenue
Pretty places with lots of tempting cakes and desserts on plate. Warm bread and butter pudding is a major love. Heartwarming bread and butter with scoop of vanilla ice cream was one bite of goodness. Their signature crepe could be a great choice too! My favorite is the banana nutella one, which is melting beautifully in my mouth.

Bistro Garcon
4th floor no. 410, Plaza Senayan
A home for eclairs lover. The layer is perfect and the taste is just awesome. Imagine the gooey filings meet the soft pastry. The caramel one tasted the sweetest but I am such a fan of it!

Those are my choices to spend my afternoon with pretty dessert. What's yours? ;)
