Monolog at Senayan, is one of my family’s Saturday mornings destination for quality time and coffee.

My mom and I would grab our favorite Tulisan totes (hers a Yellow Mustard Beach Bag, mine a Purple Plum Siesta) and bring the girls to have brunch there.

The shop operates daily from 7.00 am, like how most bakery in Europe would start. With their fine selection of pastries – crisp layers of croissant and cinnamon rolls – I feel like entering a bakery shop in France.

On weekdays, I often stop for a cup of espresso before my day starts. Their award winning baristas are pros in making smooth espresso that gleefully dance in my mouth.

One of the best thing of the place is that Nina Simone and Louis Armstrong’s music perfectly livened the place.

After a week of routines and errands, a moment of great coffee with great company and feel good music is definitely a way to start weekends.
