There are so many acceptable reasons for not going down for a hotel breakfast in Bali (that is if the breakfast is even included in your stay). Snaking queues only for the plates, cold and slithery eggs, greasy bacon and empty racks – “Oh no more yogurt? No more juice? I should have woken up earlier!”

Hotel breakfasts are pretty stressful commitments which come at an exorbitant price most of the time – not only are you paying extra for that but you are never sure of finding an empty table or getting all of your favourites… sorry the croissants are over for today!

They are even being labeled now as a food waste nightmare! Let’s confess, we pick so many items that we can never finish all of what is on our plate – sad truth!

So how about venturing out of your hotel and checking out cafes with heartwarming, delicious and affordable breakfasts? These cafes in and around hotels open early for morning risers, so you can now relax while on vacation without the daily fear of missing breakfast or thinking if some hound has already hoovered up all your breakfast comforts!

15 Affordable late night/early morning cafes in Bali near Ngurah Rai International Airport

1. Breakfast in a glasshouse never tasted so good – Kilo Bali

Breakfast didn’t earn its ‘most important meal of the day’ reputation for nothing, especially when you wolf it down at places like Kilo Bali!

The open-air cafe is distinguished by its unconventional and modern minimalist architecture that challenges the traditional landscape and offers a quiet respite away from all the hustle and bustle.

This cafe is never restful during the day (it attracts big crowds for date nights), but it does not mean that their meals are less appealing during day time.

Kilo Bali serves you the good as from 8am with non-traditional breakfast items too – if you are up for some heavy meals prior to your exploration day (that means you can save up and not have lunch too), you should definitely give a go to their Poke Bowls that are packed with goodness like tuna tartare, salmon, eggs and more!

And why not a Lamb Taco? Joking! We mean Bacon French Toast, but we would not judge you one bit if you chose their Duck Taco for breakfast too 😉 Don’t miss out on their fresh fruit options that come in different versions – chopped in bowls with granola, squeezed in glasses with ice or whole on platters to share!

2. Choose between breakfast by the pool or under botanical chandeliers – The Slow

*Temporarily closed due to COVID-19*

Located in Bali’s coolest neighbourhood, The Slow is a multifaceted island stay incorporating boutique accommodation, all-day dining, drinks, art, local culture, and interactive retail – a place to stay, eat and play (that’s how they call it!).

Photo Via Evastanly, We_are_ochre

The spot is a post surf, pre yoga joint for some morning eats and helps to recharge with an amazing menu that focuses on wood-grilled meats and seafood, local vegetables, farm greens, and field grains.

Whether you are staying there for the night or simply dropping by for a quick bite, know that the entire menu at The Slow is based on seasonal produce, with fruits and veggies coming from a co-owned local farm.

Photo Via Kareliofficial

None of the menu selections are what’s trendy at the moment, they are simple and exactly what you look out for at breakfast time, all sourced locally, packed full of nutrients.The idea at The Slow is to share your dishes (aren’t we always jealous of other orders that often look better, aka food envy?).

Sit down for an Ancient Grains Porridge – a fruity selection on their menu that combines red rice milk, grapes, java apple, almonds and mint while your travel companion gets hands on their warm Banana and Jackfruit Bread. This morning eat comes with fresh banana, passionfruit ricotta and coffee nectar and is bound to be a wake-up call to all if matched with their Kombucha.

You can’t expect more than perfection when the place is designed and thought by two superstars – husband is a designer and wife is a model who want you to experience a slower pace of life (be it at their accommodation or cafe)!

The place boasts in meticulous design along with ultimate beach vibes so you can really see that fashion met laid-back surf culture there. The Slow is filled with one-of-a-kind art pieces and classic collectables scattered all around too, each with its own history and meaning.

3. Indulge in fresh breakkie in a funky tropical hut – Neon Palms

Hopping out of bed is a smidge easier when you’ve got cafes as cute and funky as Neon Palms at your doorstep.

Photo Via Violatjee

This cafe in Seminyak is located on the second level above the famous Bali Boat Shed clothing store. With amazing offbeat interior decor, tropical wall art and outdoor funky look, the little cabana-feels cafe serves breakfast on the daily as early as 8am (P.S. Even their cocktails are available at that time!).

Photo Via Rickyutomo, Poryok, 2girls1backpack

Neon Palms is a sure-fire bet for guaranteed morning good times – there is something very comforting about their breakfast menu that stays straight-shooting. Breakfast lovers simply fall for their Eight Seed Toasts lathered with wild honey or other concoctions.

They serve a delightful Mango and Pineapple Chia Jar that does not go unnoticed either but the biggest hit is their Berry Bowl with strawberries, granola and more!

Photo Via Sasha_navetnaya

Sure, they also have the ever-present avocado on toast, but don’t expect the kitchen to simply “smash” some avo onto crusty bread. Neon Palm’s version is a tad bit more extra – it comes with savoury halloumi, shaved ricotta, tomatoes and dukkah sprinkles (a mixture of ancient Egyptian spices), match this with one of their healthy drinking potions and you are sorted for your most important meal of the day!

Photo Via Normcollective, Marymoon_iphoto, Sasha_navetnaya

Breakfast fans won’t be disappointed here, and can we all agree that with such amazing interior and even better food, breakfast shots taken at Neon Palms are simply jealousy-inducing?

4. Settle for breakfast on a bean bag with jungle views – Yellow Flower Cafe

With a limited number of tables, this cave-like cafe in Ubud is what we call a “hidden gem”, one of the lesser-knowns that does not need to be commercialized to be popular. Settle at one of their covered tables or one outside. Or how does rooftop breakfast with a view of Mount Agung on a clear morning sound to you?

Photo Via, Lerissatransportbali

Although popular for its affordable Sunday Balinese Dinner Buffet ($6), many guests have raved about its fresh breakfast selections too! Lather on warm crusty toasts, enjoy your smashed avocado topped with soft and creamy ricotta cheese to the sound of chirping birds…

Your morning sweet tooth calls for the best chocolate smoothie in town, or any other flavour does the same great job with the same great taste (we love the fruity ones)! The menu is vast and many visitors find themselves coming here every day not just for breakfast in Ubud, but for lunch and dinner too!

Photo Via Omgemma91, Omgemma91, Flourchildsf, Leamoutier, Sallyfgriffiths

The cafe is owned by a local Balinese family who thinks of food very consciously. They have been supporting local farmers and growing their own produce over the past years so you can be sure that the nourishment and life behind each ingredient is carefully thought of!

To match in the spiritual scene of magical Ubud, the cafe serves every meal with a free glass of their flower water of the gods which is said to induce states of euphoria – it’s going to be an even happier day in Ubud! 🙂

6. Do good to your body with healthy colourful fruit smoothie bowls – Clean Canteen

*Temporarily closed due to COVID-19*

You must have seen it through your Instagram feed lately – smoothie bowls have replaced traditional big English breakfasts. Simple and trendy, ‘the bowl’ is a worldwide hype that has taken Bali by storm and is the hot new way of getting your five fruits a day!

Photo Via Cebrail_superfly, Vikiseleva, Callmeedo

Clean Canteen does smoothie bowls that boast in colours – they are so pretty that you’ll think of it as a work of art; you are simply going to adore breakfast time at this cafe! We would not even think twice if we had to choose between hotel breakfast buffets and smoothie bowls from Clean Canteen!

Photo Via Edosaputra_artwork, Princessgloriafeasts, Olyazoloto

You see, the cafe does not only give you smoothie bowls that taste delicious and look gorgeous but they give you both of these plus function. Your bowl is designed with fresh and healing ingredients bursting with summer flavours!

The oh-so popular bowl is not only nourishing, but you get an extra treat – some crunch and texture to chew with bits and pieces of granola, fruits and edible flowers. And not only that, you are bound to enjoy this smoothie bowl a lot more because rumour has it that most of the taste is in the presentation. Apparently, we taste with our eyes! So since Clean Canteen makes your bowl look beautiful, it will taste even better too 😉

7. Wallow in too-pretty-to be-eaten kind of breakfasts – Peloton Supershop

The cafe has been all over social media recently; it is showing up all over the food blogosphere of those who fancy clean eating and a conscious lifestyle. Truth be told, Peloton Supershop is all about minimal earth impact.

Best is to order different dishes from their breakfast menu and share among yourselves!

They put so much passion and dedication in the taste and presentation of their dishes that they could turn anyone vegan! I mean, take a look at their menu and food items; surely these selections can make any skeptic gain a new appreciation for the delicious decadence vegan food can offer us!

8. Gulp down some sweet breakfast – Mudra Cafe

There are a few special reasons to love Ubud (the cultural hub of Bali). it is peaceful, spiritual and mystical on its own. It’s just like time has stopped when you are hanging out there – where did all the rush of daily life go?

Indulge in creamy chunks of fresh avocado, warm toasted ciabatta, nutmeg, sprouts, asparagus and  secret French sauce, served along with an organic duck/chicken egg poached to perfection.

9. Try out the trending superfood that’s anti-ageing – Acai Queen

Recent years have seen a disappearance of typical eggs and bacon breakfasts. Cafes’ menus now boast bowl options and one of the most popular one is the Acai Bowl (pronounced as  ah-sah-ee), also known as a superfood that has multiple health benefits.

And of course you can expect millenials going crazy about it for its photo opportunities – “pictures or it didn’t happen” (but frankly speaking they are luscious-looking breakfasts!).

Right in the heart of Ubud, you will find a little shack with tropical decor (in acai colour) and whimsical swings… Acai Queen is known to master the art of acai bowl making, therefore queen of acai berries!

Photo Via Newgarden630, 8junanju8

The food bar offers bowls of Brazilian acai berries packed with nutrients that are said to promote skin health and, if eaten regularly, can give you natural and glowing skin. There are countless other health benefits including weight loss, heart health, immunity boosting, mental function and anti-aging effects…

Acai Queen is a bit like the Subway of Acai bowls, just like for sandwiches, you get to choose what goes into your bowl. Any extras? Choose between oatmeal, fresh fruits, peanut butter, and much more before you settle to wolf it down with a spoon!

It’s a win-win situation as after eating a bowl, you will not only feel happily full (for hours) but you’ll also have done something good for your body.

P.S. In case you haven’t come across a breakfast bowl before, just peek at Instagram where more than 290,000 posts are tagged as #breakfastbowl. Coincidentally (or not) the picture will also be tagged as #rawfood #cleaneating and  #superfood. Just saying!
