Following success at its two first outlets in Plaza Indonesia and Grand Indonesia, this artisanal bakery ran by Talita Setyadi opens a new outlet with homey atmosphere in Cikajang area, South Jakarta.

UNLIKE THE PREVIOUS outlets, the BEAU HQ is a standalone outlet that also serves as their central kitchen. Here, upon entry, you will be welcomed by the wonderful aroma of freshly baked breads. This outlet has a slightly different menu concept, in which Talita plays with her creativity to offer brunch menu that includes their home product breads.

Smørrebørd, which is traditional Nordic version of open-faced sandwich, is the most recommended menu at BEAU HQ. There are a lot of varieties of smørrebørd that you can choose, from smoked salmon, beef pastrami, to vegetarian-favorite roasted pumpkin. While the filling can be made according to your liking, Talita builds the base of these smørrebørd using traditional Danish rye bread called rugbørd, which is loaded with kernels and seeds just like how Danish people would make. Perhaps, BEAU is one of very few bakeries in Indonesia that produce their own rugbørd rye breads.

Our favourite menu here is Gravad Laks Smørrebørd, the traditional sandwich with smoked salmon filling. The unique aroma of smoked salmon really stands out, while the yoghurt sauce, dill, beet and radish lend freshness to the dish and balance the overall taste. You must also try the Beef Pastrami Smørrebørd that is served with poached egg and caramelized onion.

Besides savory dishes, BEAU Cikajang also has varieties of pastries and cakes that are known as their signatures. Dainty slices of cakes are put on display at the front of this bakery, while scrumptious breads are arranged on shelves along the main dining area. One of their latest items that you can enjoy here is Mont Violet, which is a creative twist of purple sweet potato cake. This pretty cake is beyond delectable, with brilliant combinations of milk chocolate ganache, purple sweet potato mousse, mascarpone chantilly and purple sweet potato cream that each fairly contributes to create pleasurable culinary experience.

For Talita, this most recent outlets is a manifestation of the real BEAU brand personality. Situated in Cikajang – which is basically a residential area – BEAU blends into the environment as a neighborhood cafe with homey laid back atmosphere: a perfect place to spend your leisure time, especially on the weekend. This cafe also has nice architectural and interior designs that make this place an ideal spot to create attention-grabbing Instagram feeds.
