buzz : The best soy flat white in Bali since their introduction of Australia's Own soy milk.  A smooth, strong brew, served hot and fast.  A perfect chaser to the tangerine and blueberry juice. The hip crowd  gathers like an an international convention over coffee, panini and eggs anyway you like.  Wireless internet assures the white laptop is de rigueur; the perfect accessory to silk over distressed denim, or stretch floral cotton and  stripes. Owned by Sean Cosgrove, ex-Melbournian, who also designs the kids clothing line Little Horn, and sources the mens and women's designer pieces that keeps drawing attention away from your bagel.   range of Deus ex Machina clothing and prints fill an adjoining room.  Outdoor tables buzz with a steady stream of double cheeked kisses & macchiattos, and if you can ignore the traffic noise and busted pavement, you could well be in Bondi. This is Bali now.
