    COCONUTS HOT SPOT —  La Brasserie, a new chic, French-fusion cafe has opened its bright, white doors on the road leading right to Jimbaran Beach.

    On a stretch of the road where cafes are few and far between, you can’t miss the whitewashed antique-mod look of La Brasserie.

    You can hardly recognize the space, which was previously one of our favorite (but often empty) hidden gems, Saigon in Jimbaran. Working with a tight area on the side of the little road, a couple of walls seem to have been knocked down to open things up, while sliding doors opening out to the road have given the resto a less claustrophobic feel than its predecessor. Twinkle lights, outdoor wicker furniture, and white stone walls give the place an elegant and island chic vibe.
