15. It’s like dining in a magazine spread with delicious food! – Grocer and Grind

Having been around for 9 years, and with 4 equally stunning outlets spread across Bali – Grocer and Grind mixes good coffee and great food with interiors coming straight out of a design magazine.

A dash of minimalist chic with timber accents, and a sprinkle of funky art prints and interesting wallpaper, Grocer and Grind gives you the perfect space to instagram away.

Enough about the décor, you’ll be happy to know that Grocer & Grind is famous for their daily roasted organic coffee and delicious breakfasts!

They have menus available for breakfast, lunch, and dinner – as well as menus for pizzas, desserts, and a dedicated sundae menu. (Ice cream should definitely be included as a major meal of the day. ;P)

In the menus, you’ll find truly enticing range of dishes from smoked salmon pancakes to lamb wraps and more.

16. Take a ride on the quaint old-school carriage  – Betelnut Cafe

Located in Canggu, Betelnut Café is well known for their really tasty menus that are not only delicious, but are healthy and good for the body as well.

While Betelnut Café isn’t as polished as the usually sophisticated cafes around, the lush rice paddy and homey double-story thatch bungalow make a great backdrop for that perfect addition to your Insta-gallery.

Apart from the famously tasty food, make sure to take photos at the super quaint area just before you head up the stairs to the breezy mezzanine. Sit on the old school carriage and snap a shot, before heading up to get a good view of the grounds below.

Next, the famous Naga Bowl breakfast is an absolute hit with everyone who’s in the know – and if you’re into healthy eating, you definitely won’t want to miss this. It’s filled with nothing but the best! Banana, dragonfruit, yoghurt puree, and sprinkled with cashews, shredded coconut, granola and other fruits.

If not, you might just want to go for the Big Betelnut salad. Why big? It consists of 4 of Betelnut Café’s signature salads all in 1! There are also wraps, tex-mex tacos and burritos to choose from if you’re looking for something heavier.

Finally, wash it all down with a healthy juice – or a cider if you’re feeling it!

17. That sweet little vintage place: Cafe Bali

You may not be impressed by the name; neither is it likely that you may be intrigued enough to look past the small palm trees lining the facade.

But we’ll tell you this – it’s difficult not to go ‘wow’ once you’ve set foot in this unassuming little place.

The cafe manages to be cute without being sickeningly sweet.

Think whitewashed wood, an eclectic collection of mismatched furniture, and probably the most creative light fixtures on the island.

19. That whimsical cafe-bar: La Plancha

This Legian Beach cafe, which doubles up as a rooftop bar, has been around for years, yet it never gets old.

And it genuinely lives up to its name – the traditional Spanish way of cooking that’s simple, fresh, and unpretentious (La Plancha literally means “the grill”).

Don’t bother looking for this signage though – it’s too small to be spotted easily.

Just follow the fragrant whiff of barbecued Spanish delights and the sound of clinking beer bottles, and you’ll find your way to this colourful beach shack.

But of course, the most coveted seats are right on the beach.

Lounge on the colourful beanbags with the wind in your hair, the sand between your toes and an ice cold Bintang in your hand.

You just need the perfect Bali sunset, and your Bali holiday is complete.

20. Minimalist: The Junction Seminyak

Doesn’t the white-washed wooden structure distinctly stand out, especially among the chic colourful boutiques along the crowded Seminyak junction?

Designed by Nobuyuki Narabayashi, the cool monochromatic minimalist interior of the restaurant turns it into a zen haven on a hot and humid day.

Seminyak Junction is a place where to dine is to linger over. 

Even after you finish your meal, you can’t help but linger and admire the jars lined along the walls, filled with various items from all over Bali.

Spices, sand, stones – there’s always something interesting to admire. 

Even the toilet is in a league of its own – what a clever way to store toilet rolls!

21. For the Surf-watchers: Single Fin

Watching the sun sets in swanky cliffside establishments can get quite touristy and pretentious.

How about a laidback and no-frills atmosphere?

Head out to Single Fin at Blue Point, Uluwatu.

In the day, it’s generally quiet and relaxed as people saunter in to enjoy the views of Uluwatu, and watch the surfers in action on the world-famous surf break below. The evenings get more lively as the surfer dudes and yoga babes start streaming in.

The best night to visit? Sunday – when they host their weekly parties with live acoustic bands and DJs.

The menu is fairly simple (think pizzas and tacos coupled with the perfect bottle of ice cold Bintang), but the impressive unobstructed view of the Indian Ocean is definitely the main scene-stealer.
