Coffee Cartel

Have you seen pictures of coffee with cute designs on it? Well, Coffee Cartel is the place where you can get a cup of coffee with a customised design! Now this is why Coffee Cartel is on my list of must-go cafes in Bali!

Located in the heart of seminyak, Coffee Cartel also serves an amazing variety of food! You’ll have a wide option of all day breakfast and all day lunch! My personal fave? The double royal with cheese burger! The beef patty is so soft and juicy, it literally melts in your mouth! Yum!

Nothing is priced above 100k rupiah! You’ll get to enjoy a delicious meal that is not only insta-worthy but is wallet-friendly.

Don’t forget to check the side wall of the cafe! There’s a really pretty pink mural that you’ll definitely need a shot with.

Address: 08 Jalan Lebak Sari, Petitenget, Seminyak, 80361

Kynd Community

Now a trip to Bali isn’t complete without visiting Kynd Community!

Omg if you haven’t heard about one of Bali’s must-go cafes, which rock have you been hiding in?

Kynd Community is one cafe that you cannot miss when you’re in Bali!

Like Coffee Cartel, Kynd Community is also located in Seminyak.

The plant-based cafe proofs that vegan food can not only look good and careful, but is just as tasty!

Lemme tell ya, I’ve tried many vegan cafes in different countries, and I’ve never left one feel satisfied or full. The food was expensive and it tasted awful!

Kynd Community has renewed my faith in vegan food! Hence, it’s on my list of must-go cafes in Bali!

Strawberry Fields

How does a huge bowl of beer battered fries with bacon and melted cheese sound?

When I heard that Strawberry Fields offered their specialty loaded fries, I was drooling! I could not wait to get my hands on them!

There’s such a huge variety of food being offered. If you’re a health nut, you get vitality bowls, healthy smoothies, juices, etc.

However, if you’re like me, and want a decadent meal, you’re spoilt for choices! There’s their huge a** burgers that I didn’t know where to begin eating! The garlic prawns in truffle was absolutely foodgasm! And you have to try the monster shakes! I got The Cookie Monstershake and was hooked!

Plus points? The staff are really friendly there and this places oozes comfy vibes. Did I mention they have a pool table?

Strawberry Fields should definitely be on your list of must-go cafes in Bali!

Address: Jalan Batu Belig 77, Gang. Anisa, Kuta Utara, Kerobokan Kelod, Kuta Utara, Kabupaten Badung, Bali 8036

Neon Palms

When I first stepped into Neon Palms, I felt like I stepped into a safari with the African-themed murals.

Want a little retail therapy before or after your meal? Fear not! Neon Palms is located right about Bali Boat Shed Boutique!

I brought a friend to this lovely cafe for a meal and we were there a little too early. The cafe hadn’t opened yet. I managed to sneak in a little shopping before we headed upstairs for our breakfast.

This beautiful place is perfect for a cocktail and some tapas with a touch of tropical vibes!

Address: Cnr of Jalan Kayu Aya & Jalan Kayu Jati Seminyak, Bali

Opening Hours: 8am – midnight (daily)

Balibola

Balibola is a flexitarian cafe that is known for is instagrammable back drop like “Balifornia Dreamin'” and colourful food!

What does flexitarian mean?

Well, by definition, it is a plant-based diet which occasionally includes meat. In Balibola’s case, they serve fish.

The name Balibola comes from the word “bola”, which means ball in both Spanish and Bahasa. Spain is where the idea of creating delicious savoury balls of wholesome vegetarian goodness was born.

Balibola’s dishes are inspired  by staple meals all around the world and are carerfully crafted to taste as authentic as can be – just meatless.

The pop of pastel colours, food and exterior, will definitely attract you back for more!

Address: Jalan Petitenget No8x, Seminyak Bali

Opening Hours: 8:30am – 10pm (daily)

Cafe Organic

I’ve heard so much of Cafe Organic but I was only able to visit this cafe during my last trip.

Cafe Organic offers health conscious vegetarian meals with a passion for simple dishes using fresh, locally farmed produce.

Cafe Organic has three branches; Petitenget, Canggu and Umalas.

I am obsessed with the Bao Bun, which is pulled marinated jackfruit, coriander, cucumber chili, tamari hoi sin and coconut bacon. The hoi sin tasted so good, I wanted to order seconds!

The smoothie bowls and chia cups were just as tasty! You wouldn’t want to miss it!

Adresses: Jln. Petitenget 99x Seminyak Bali
Jln. Batu Bolong 58x Canggu Bali
Jln. Umalas 1 Kerobokan Bali

Opening Hours: 7am – 6pm (daily)

The Shady Shack Bali

Finally venturing out of the cafes in Seminyak, we have one from Canggu that has made it to my list of must-go cafes in Bali!

Dear readers, rejoice if you’re a vegetarian cos Shady Shack is another vegetarian cafe in Bali!

Now, I went on an absolutely freakin’ hot day and was sweating like mad even before we got our table. But on a less hot day, you can sit outdoors, enjoy a cup of coffee…or coconut, and enjoy the view of the rice field just opposite!

I wonder why didn’t I visit this quaint cafe during my previous trip to Bali, when I actually stayed in Canggu.

We ordered the nachos for sharing, and good gracious, it was addictive! Partly due to Shady Shack’s house-made chilli sauce. It was so good, I actually asked the waiter if we could buy the sauce. Sadly, they don’t sell it.

I would have ordered more food if not for the fact that we arrived at Shady Shack with a half -full tummy! But I’m pretty sure the other dishes are just as good as the nachos!

Address: Jl. Tanah Barak No.57, Canggu, Bali

Operating Hours: 8:30am – 11pm (daily)

 

Cabina Bali

My last must-go to cafe in Bali is Cabina Bali! Well, technically it’s not a cafe but if you’re in Bali, you definitely can’t miss the floating breakfast that it’s known for!

Cabina is designed in such a way where it reminds you of a tropical paradise, with all the lush palm trees, cactuses and wooden deck chairs.

We ordered the tropical floating brunch, which includes 2 drinks per person; a coffee or tea, and a mocktail. We were given a fruit platter, 2 mains and 2 sweet and sour dishes.

My personal favourite? Mac Daddy Croissant! Cos who doesn’t love a good Mac & Cheese?

Cabina Bali is the perfect place to spend the day! Enjoy a hearty brunch and get some Vitamic D by the pool!

Now this is what I call a vacation!

Address: Jalan Gang Daksina No 01,
Batu Belig, Kerobokan, Denpasar 8031 

Opening Hours: 8am – 7pm (daily)

 

I hope you guys enjoyed my list of must-go cafes! I do hope you have the chance to visit some of these cafes while in Bali! Also, if you have any other cafe recommendations, please share with me in the comments.
