With an influx of travellers and Digital Nomads, Bali has become synonymous with organic cafes, Buddha bowls, co-working spaces and great coffee! Therefore, you’re likely to find some pretty awesome places to get your caffeine fix. However, how do you choose somewhere that doesn’t place style over substance and will serve you a divine-tasting coffee? Well, you read on to find out which are the best coffee shops in Bali and then go there!
Revolver Espresso is often argued to be the best coffee shop in Seminyak, if not the whole of Bali thanks to their delicious home blend and awesome food menu. The artistry that goes into producing their pretty cappuccinos and exquisite plates of food is top notch! Plus, their cold brew coffee is served up in a liquor-style bottle for added quirk. This boutique coffee house has cool, modern interiors which are a must for the ‘gram so it’s worth a visit next time you’re in Seminyak.
Milk and Madu
For a hearty, healthy brunch and 100% Arabica coffee by Beans by The Brotherhoood, head to Milk and Madu in Ubud or Canggu (the fact they have two proves how good it is!). These modern cafés offer everything you need for a long, slow brunch or an afternoon coffee out of the heat of the day. They also have an incredible selection of smoothies, kombuchas, iced teas and cocktails for those that don’t fancy a cup of Joe.
Seniman Coffee Studio in Ubud is one of the original and best coffee shops in Bali. Opened by Australian Rodney Glick in 2010, Seniman Coffee is something of an institution for those who love a light-medium roast and a decent brunch. They pride themselves on showing off the flavours of Indonesian coffee beans from all over the islands and you can even order a coffee taster flight so you can compare, contrast and find your favourite!
Ubud Coffee Culture
If you want a true taste of Indonesia for your caffeine fix, you can’t beat Ubud Coffee Culture. UCC focuses solely on Indonesian single origin beans and are known for making these flavours shine with simple pourover coffee. You can tell the owners and baristas here truly love coffee so you can chat for hours on end about the best beans and coffee accoutrements in the business!
Suka Espresso in Uluwatu is a surfer favourite with smooth coffee and tasty smoothie bowls being the perfect feast to enjoy when you come back from a morning on the ocean. Suka is open every day from 8am-10pm meaning there’s no excuse not to pop in for a coffee, a cake or some Insta-worthy food! This place is loved by both locals and tourists alike and is a great spot to while away a few hours out of the sun.
Coffee Cartel in Seminyak is another Insta-lover’s dream, with colourful plates of food, speciality coffee and great WiFi so you can upload your shots right away! They have both indoor and outdoor seating and stunning interiors so you can truly enjoy this boutique coffee experience. Many of the foodie options are vegan and gluten-free (and of course, unbelievably photogenic!) and their coffee art is to die for.
For a plant-based coffee fix, get yourself over to Kynd Community in Seminyak. These food and coffee lovers truly celebrate the vegan lifestyle and will convince even the most carnivorous among us that plant-based drinks and dining can be delicious. Their home-made mylks pair perfectly with the smooth espresso coffee and their coconut ice cream affogato is an afternoon treat of the Gods!
