Brekkie o’clock: Top 15 cafés in Canggu for a bonanza breakfast
1. Hungry Bird: The best coffee in town
If you missed your morning latte, head off to Hungry Bird in Berawa. This place promises the best coffee in town and also offers some yummy brunch options, like huge plates of eggs and pancakes, and delicious fruit bowls just to name a few. And the best of all: it will not hurt your pocket.
2. Βetelnut: The landmark of Canggu
One of the first places to open in Canggu, visiting this café is a must. Try one of the combo breakfast options that include eggs, fruit and coffee and you will not be disappointed. It is yummy, really filling and great value for money. As well as the breakfast combos, there are plenty of other options to choose from.
3. Gypsy Kitchen & Bar: The bohemian queen
A newcomer to Canggu, with a bohemian setting on the road leading to Old Man’s surf spot, this place competes closely with Hungry Bird for the best coffee in town. If you prefer tea instead, do try the most delicious Chai Tea Latte. The breakfast options are endless, from the more healthy avo on toast to the more filling mille-crepes with multilayered pancakes. If you don’t know what to order, there is always The Undecided, a combo of one avo toast and one baba toast.
4. Peloton Supershop: Our top vegan choice
Welcome to a vegan paradise in Canggu. The breakfast here couldn’t get yummier and healthier. Coffee with coconut, almond, rice milk – anything but dairy – and the best smoothie bowls. The Pedal Power Pancakes will definitely not disappoint you. And if you love avocado, try the Avo Good Day.
5. The Shady Shack: Loyal to its name
The Shady Shack is the sister of Betelnut and true to its name, it promises a shady shack perfect for a morning feast. The restaurant, though vegetarian, is not lacking in variety. Breakfast bowls, healthy smoothies, delicious lattes: there is plenty of choice for everyone.
6. The Crate: And you will ask for more
Crate Café is always crowded for very good reason and so had to move to new bigger premises so all the Crate fans could find a corner to sit and enjoy the all-day breakfast. With a very friendly vibe that starts with a warm welcome from Maree the owner, and a relaxed atmosphere, this is the perfect place to enjoy a slap up breakfast. Some of our top picks include Peasplease with feta, peas, spinach, avocado, poached egg and pesto on sourdough, the house blended coffee of course and the full carnivore option The Barber, with French toast, scrambled eggs, bacon, fried banana and maple syrup.
7. Nalu Bowls: Redefining breakfast bowls
A tiny place next to Dojo co-working space and just metres away from Echo Beach, Nalu Bowls has earned its name in all fairness. Its secret? The most yummy and filling breakfast bowls inspired by famous waves all over the world. There’s J-Bay for the peanut lovers, Macaronis for the sorbet lovers, Pipeline for the Hawaiian dreamers, Mavericks with some acai goodness, Uluwatu with Bali’s trademark fruit – the dragon fruit, and Teahupoo for a cleansing start: pick your wave and you are in for a healthy fix.
8. Ruko Café: Minutes from Berawa Beach
Ruko Café is the perfect stop after your morning surf at Berawa Beach. If you miss brekkie in the big city, we’ve got you covered, this is your place. Pull Your Pork with eggs and pulled pork will satisfy your carnivore hunger, while you will find some healthy juices, slushes and some serious home brewed coffee.
9. Satu-Satu Coffee Company: A breakfast that won’t hurt your pocket
Not the typical bohemian café you find in Canggu, Satu-Satu has won our hearts and pleased our pockets. Great coffee, fair portions, yummy breakfast and super friendly staff are the reasons this place is always full. If you want to try something different and check where the Berawa expats hang out, come here.
10. Made’s Banana Flour Company: A heaven for celiacs and gluten free fans
One question: Have you ever tried a gluten free croissant and a banana bread that tastes better than anything else you have tried? No? Then go check out this place. It is not very big so you might need to order a take away but it is definitely worth a try.
11. Parachute: The new kid in town
Sit under the large parachute area or grab a table upstairs and enjoy the view of the rice paddies. This place also offers a generous grass space for the little ones to play around on. In the buffet area, try for free the most delicious samples of home baked bread accompanied by different sauces. The pork belly, egg and veggie cream cheese on English muffin will please even the most demanding foodie despite the small portions. The breakfast choice is endless, from home-made bread, pastries and cookies to breakfast plates to DIY plates as well as some home-made elixirs and healthy juices.
12. Bali Bowls: For all sorts of bowls
A nice hut style bohemian café in Berawa combining all sorts of ingredients in a sweet or sour bowl. Breakfast bowls include the Energy Boost, Sunrise Scramble and Berry Blast. As well as bowls, there is also a wide range of eggs any style, juices, smoothies and great coffee.
13. Canteen: The beachbum parlour
The best place to head off after a morning surf session: vintage surf boards hanging from the ceiling, recycled-style interior and a not pricey but yummy breakfast selection. The coconut milkshake is insane, excellent coffee, bagels, savoury sandwiches, smooth bowls and juices to die for are just some of the place’s top picks.
14. Cinta Café: Feel the love
Cinta, loyal to its motto ‘Whatever you do, do it with love’, gives an extra scoop of love to its breakfast. The place was recently refurbished and now offers more spacious seating, while retaining its open kitchen concept. Choose a table at the back to enjoy the rice field views, order a coffee and an eggs benedict plate and you are all set.
15. Cloud 9: Enjoy the view
Right at the road connecting Batu Bolong and Berawa – the road famous for its motorbikes found in the rice field – Cloud 9 promises the best rice field view in town. Select your bean bag and soak up the sun while enjoying the view. Try one of the breakfast combos and you will not be disappointed. We personally love the Nazare veggie combo with granola, fresh fruits and coconut or soya milk plus fresh juice and coffee.
