The Best Coffee Shops In Bali – 7 Must-See Spots!

Melhores Cafés Em Bali - Best Coffee Shops in Bali

On my last trip and without programming anything, I found myself looking for the best coffee shops in Bali.

The requirements were high. They had to have good ambiance, enough details, and quality food… especially eggs benedict, my all-time favorites for breakfast.

Bali is indeed very different from the island I met 10 years ago. More modern — cosmopolitan, if you can call it —, it’s not difficult to find trendy places, worthy of an Instagram post.

The next seven are on my list of favorites and are well worth the recommendation.

The Cashew Tree, Bingin

The Cashew Tree Bingin Bali

On the road towards Bingin beach, you can find The Cashew Tree. This coffee shop is a must if you like to relax, accompanied by some fantastic eggs benedict and natural juices.

If you want to put surfing aside for a while and train in gym mode, there’s a training center here that can be a good option.

At night, the lights come on, and the place becomes more intimate, but without losing its relaxed atmosphere.


Grain Bali, Seminyak

If you are distracted, you may as well pass by the Grain‘s entrance, without even noticing. In a small alley, the tables extend on a terrace that accompanies the window of this cafe in the Seminyak area.

Perfect for breakfast or a light meal, the baristas make magic and coffee takes on another dimension.


Crate, Canggu

Crate Canggu Bali

“Creating a community” is the motto of this cafe in the trendy area of ​​Canggu. And it is a large community that is attracted to this location.

The Crate is, no more and no less, a shed transformed into a space with lots of hype.

The menu is on the wall, and it’s necessary to go to a pre-payment queue to place the order. Then you just have to grab an empty table or a crate and wait for the food to arrive.

If you like amazing looking food, order a chia smoothie and pick up the camera.

Because Bali has an anti-plastic policy — it’s about time! —, the drinks are served here with a papaya stem-like straw. Smart!


The Shady Shack, Canggu

The Shady Shack Canggu Bali

This is “The” place to go if you are a vegetarian. The Shady Shack is relaxed and, as the name implies, has a lovely outdoor area that offers the much-desired shade in the hottest time of the day.

The menu is huge, and you’ll want to try everything, even people like me who don’t indulge only in veggie options. Here the food is so good that one does not miss the meat.


Drifter’s Surfshop & Cafe, Uluwatu

Drifter's Surfshop & Cafe Uluwatu Bali

It’s one of the most beautiful surf shops on the island and offers a lounge area and restaurant.

Enjoy breakfast in Drifter’s garden and take a stroll around the store while you wait for “Eggs Your Way.”

The decor is all wood-made, and the local brands intersect with some well-known international labels. You won’t find the best prices here, but the place is inviting.


The Loft

The Loft Uluwatu Bali

In the path to Uluwatu Beach, just after the Drifter, you’ll arrive at The Loft, a place that entered directly to my best coffee shops in Bali list.

A sign welcomes all expats that live nearby. So, it’s not strange that some tables are occupied by customers who take advantage of this coffee shop to work on their laptops.

The Loft is spacious, and the decor is spotless, with beautiful images on the walls. Order a bowl full of soul food or indulge in one of the various coffees that make up the menu.

Also, next to the Loft, there’s the U Spa, an incredible massage center. Step out of the cafe and surrender yourself to the hands of a therapist to make your day even more perfect.


Crumb & Coaster, Kuta

Crumb & Coaster Kuta Bali

It was my last stop in Kuta before returning to Portugal and left good memories.

Again, I ordered the eggs benedict for breakfast, and they did not disappoint. But the list is full of wonderful dishes, prepared in the kitchen that is in plain sight.

The decor of the Crumb & Coaster is lovely and full of details, which makes the place even more appealing.

  • Linda de Beer

    All of these coffee shops sound like great places to unwind. But the Shady Shack and Loft are especially appealing to me. I think a massage at U Spa after coffee at Loft will most certainly be on my agenda if I’m lucky enough to visit.

    • Marlene Marques

      Hi, Linda. Make sure to do that massage. I think you’ll have a lovely relaxing time 😉 Thanks for stopping by and I hope you get to visit Bali one day.

  • Linda (LD Holland)

    We too went chasing around Bali for coffee. Hubby liked the local coffee brew. But did not like the Kopi Luwak. I did not know that Bali had gone anti-plastic. So interesting to do your coffee search with a breakfast requirement. Yummy!

    • Marlene Marques

      Thanks, Linda! I’ve never managed to taste the Kopi Luwak. Maybe one day. But the coffee you get to dring in the restaurants and coffee shops are really nice, so I never felt the urge to try any other. 🙂

  • Elaine Masters

    This is nothing like I expected to see in Bali. Each looks so delicious and is presented beautifully. Very cosmopolitan indeed.

    • Marlene Marques

      Yes, things have changed in the last years, and now you can find cool places like these everywhere. But, if you like local food you can still find it, which is cool! Thanks for stopping by, Elaine!

  • sherianne

    Oh my gosh, everything looks delicious! I tend to skip breakfast while traveling and eat a bar as a wander around. Looks like that has been a mistake, this appears to be a much better way to begin the day. Now I really want eggs benedict…

    • Marlene Marques

      I’m the opposite, Sherianne. At home, I normally take simple breakfasts, but when I’m traveling I love to have big, slow breakfasts! Especially if there are eggs benedict in the menu 😉

  • Renata

    Good coffee is crucial when travelling – and often hard to find. I hate all this Nescafe you get served, so your tips are truly helpful – albeit, especially Bali was not so difficult – and neither was Viet Nam – both countries grow and roast great coffee.

    • Marlene Marques

      Hi, Renata. I’m also a fan of good coffee. In Portugal, we normally drink expresso, in a small cup filled in half. It was so hard to find it like that in Bali. It was always or a small shot of coffee or a full cup… but at the end of the trip we finally managed to explain the way we like it 😉 But, yes, coffee is really good in Bali. I’ve never been to Vietnam, but I bet I will love it too! Happy travels!

  • Chris Bloomfield

    I have always wanted to try a fancy coffee that looks like a flower or leaves on the top! Apparently I just need to head to Bali because several of your pictures show that it is a popular way to prepare the coffee there. I really think the food looks divine at Crumb & Coaster, my stomach rumbled just from reading your article!

    • Marlene Marques

      Thanks, Chris! And you are right, almost every coffee in Bali comes with a little decoration 😉 Happy travels!

  • Nicole LaBarge

    All of these places look so delish! I definitely want to go for a coffee at the Loft.

    • Marlene Marques

      Loft was one of my favorite spots, Nicole. I think you would like it too. 😉

  • Debra Schroeder

    Wish I had this list when I visited last year. The poached eggs on toast looks tasty.

    • Marlene Marques

      Hi, Debra! Maybe save it for when you return one day 🙂 By my experience, we always go back 😉 Happy travels!

  • Tami

    So glad to see these trendy coffee shops have good food too, as I’m not a coffee drinker. But it must have been fun exploring and searching for the best!

    • Marlene Marques

      Hi Tami! It was super fun, but I think I’ve ended with a few extra pounds 😉 Happy travels!
