The Australian cafe boasts a chic, homey setting: geometric floor tiles, plush booth seats and marble counters. On the menu: healthy breakfast foods that make taking food shots mandatory (think an acai berry bowl topped with edible flowers and smashed avocado toast that comes beautifully plated).
Open 7am-10pm daily, Jalan Kayu Cendana No. 7 Seminyak, Kerobokan
2) The Fat Turtle
Just about everyone heads here for their red velvet pancakes and red velvet lattes. But some (read: die-hard Instagrammers) will also head here for the best seats in the house: against the brick wall mural, of course.
Open 8am-6pm daily, Jalan Petitenget No. 886A, Seminyak
3) Motel Mexicola
Want a place that dishes out heaps of feel-good vibes? This is the #1 spot to head to. Colourful clashing prints, drawings and paintings adorning the walls and floors, and a great outdoor terrace to enjoy drinks from sundown! Fans of Mexican nosh won't be disappointed, too: the extensive menu covers everything from nibbles (chorizo with melted cheese quesadillas anyone?) to more substantial mains like grilled pork ribs.
Open 11am-1am daily, Jalan Kayu Jati No. 9X Petitenget
4) Grocer & Grind
Its bright and airy interior makes this bakery-cafe a cheery mid-afternoon pit stop. Everything here, from the pastries to the greens, are made in-house. And while the breakfast menu comprises standard cafe fare — poached eggs, salads and bircher mueslie — we like the lunch and dinner menus for more hearty offerings, including pad thai and rib eye steak.
Open 7am-10pm daily, Jalan Kayu Jati No. 3X, Petitenget
What sets Souq apart from the crowd is that it's part cafe, part hip lifestyle store. There's a slew of organic plates to partake of, and coffee beans come from notable Australian coffee roasters Toby's Estate, so expect to get a good shot of caffeine here. Post-meal, pick up beachwear, homeware and other useful knick knacks (no cheap sourvenirs or trinkets) here.
Open 7:30am-8pm (Mon-Sat) and 9am-6pm (Sun), Jalan Basangkasa No. 10, Seminyak
The four-year old establishment takes its food and decor seriously. You see it in their "farm-to-fork" philosophy, where whatever you consume is produced at their organic farm in Kintamani, Bali. It's also evident from the Parisian chic vibe they've created — from the raw concrete tables to the monochromatic flooring and cosy al fresco dining area.
Open 7am-11pm daily, Jalan Petitenget No. 40, Seminyak
