We’ve spent a good amount of time in the area and have eaten in A LOT of places. Take a read of the list below to find out some of our favourite places to eat in Canggu.

The best cafes in Canggu – Our Top Picks


Breakfast at Jikaa cafe, one of the best cafes in Canggu

Jikaa is a quaint café with a small team of staff, but don’t let this fool you. You better believe that their food and coffee puts them right up there with the best cafes in Canggu.

Their ‘Summer in Bali’ smoothie bowl is our top pick, although their Spaghetti Carbonara is also an incredible choice. They also have super-fast wifi, so, if you’re looking for a place to work, check out this café.

The Mocca

If we made a list of Canggu’s most Instagrammable cafes then ‘The Mocca’ might be the automatic number 1 choice. The cafe’s interior is homely and their food, both breakfast and dinner, is unbelievably good.

We absolutely love their “Dragon Smoothie Bowl” and the “Rainbow Chai”, both are options worthy of any Instagram feed.

Example cost: Rainbow Chai 60K

Rise & Shine

If you knew how many times we’d visited ‘Rise & Shine’ then you might assume it’s our personal favourite. For us, we can’t say for certain that it’s the best café in Canggu because there’s just too much competition. The friendly staff, great breakfast choices and good coffee are what make this café special.

The Dragon Bowl, Eggs on Toast and Barrel Rolls are all top breakfast choices at rising & Shine. They also have excellent WiFi, making it a perfect place to catch up on some work.

Example cost: Super Scramble Eggs 60K

A variety of breakfast items that can be chosen at Copenhagen cafe

Copenhagen is a fun café in Canggu that offers something different. Instead of choosing one breakfast item, you can choose a variety of smaller items to make up your meal. Choose between 3-5 miniature portions and have a variety of flavours to enjoy.

You can’t go wrong here, we really enjoyed Copenhagen and can really recommend their miniature smoothie bowl!

Example cost: choose 3 items
Location: Jl. Padang Linjong No.71a, Canggu, Kuta Utara, Kabupaten Badung, Bali 80361

Secret Spot

The 'choco loco' smoothie bowl from Secret Spot cafe in Canggu

If you’re looking for the best vegan café in Canggu then this might just be it. Everything on their menu is raw/vegan/vegetarian, not only that, but it’s also 100% delicious. You don’t usually catch us at vegan cafes, though this is one that we can’t keep away from!

We can’t get enough of their breakfasts and honestly, their ‘Choco Loco’ smoothie bowl is different but amazing and healthy! The ‘build your own’ waffles are also another top choice, they’re incredibly fluffy and come with delicious toppings.

Satu Satu Coffee Company

This place has to be among the cheapest places to eat in Canggu. Their omelettes, smoothie bowls and amazing coffee make for a wonderful cheap breakfast. You’ll know from the moment you arrive how popular Satu Satu is, it’s often busy but with enough tables for everyone. Their service is great too and you’ll never be left waiting.

We highly recommend their omelettes and coffee. At one point we were eating here every other day, not just because the price is low but because the quality is high. You won’t find a better value for money breakfast.

Example cost: Ham Omelette 25K

Crate Café

If the ‘best cafes in Canggu’ was a popularity competition then Crate Café would win, hands down. There’s not a moment of the day that this café isn’t buzzing with people, however, its popularity is well deserved. It’s a fun quirky environment, overlooking a rice paddy and offers fantastic food and coffee.

We love their lattes and their ‘Brekkie2Go’ bowl, but everything we’ve seen on other tables looks out of this world. No visit to Canggu would be complete without visiting Crate at least once!

Betelnut Café

Betelnut Café is one of the most recent places we added to the list of breakfast spots in Canggu. We seriously regret not trying this one sooner as the prices are good and food even better. The open-air rooftop seating plan is the perfect place to enjoy a coffee, juice and healthy breakfast.

Their cheese & bacon omelette is a must try if you’re looking for a well-packed omelette that’s not short of ingredients. We always pair it up with some sourdough toast and a latte to make our perfect breakfast.

Example Cost: Omelette 52K
Location: Pantai Batu Bolong Street No.60, Canggu, North Kuta, Badung Regency, Bali 80351


An image of breakfast pancakes and a coffee at Sprout cafe

I’m just going, to be honest, I don’t think ‘Sprout’ is the catchiest name for a café. Don’t be put off though, this cafe is home to one of the best breakfasts in Canggu without a doubt.

We absolutely loved the triple stack of pancakes and smoothie bowls! You’ll also find a range of tasty nutritious juices on offer that you will not regret trying.

Example cost: Pancakes 45K
Location: Kuta Utara Badung, Jl. Raya Semat No.18, Tibubeneng, Canggu, Kabupaten Badung, Bali 80361


An image of a scramble egg and chorizo breakfast at Kembali Bumbak

Kembali might offer similar breakfast options to every other café, so what makes it one of the best cafes in Canggu? The quality. Trust us, the quality of the food in this place is off the charts. It’s not the cheapest of places to grab a great breakfast but we have no problems paying the prices.

If you’re going to list Chorizo and Chili as ingredients then you might as well just take our money. Their Chorizo and Chili scrambled eggs are our top pick from this menu, though be sure to try the smoothies too. They’re amazing.

Example cost: Chili & Chorizo Scrambled Eggs 70K
Location: Kembali Bumbak, Jl. Bumbak Dauh, Kerobokan, North Kuta, Badung Regency, Bali 80361
