The Canggu Cafes - A Living Guide to the Best Cafes in Canggu (A Bali List by A Brother Abroad)

Canggu is Bali’s newest and hippest “area” that has just about the best of everything in Bali.  Beaches.  Smoothie bowls.  Surfing.  Beautiful sunsets.  And Coffee.  Lots of coffee.  This should be expected, given the hipster vibe in Canggu.  The Canggu Café scene is strong.  Real strong.  From someone who learned to love coffee in Italy, I can tell you that the cafes in Canggu do their coffee very well and are worth exploring.

Be warned that because the coffee is generally done so well here, everywhere has wifi, and the food is on point, the Canggu cafés scene isn’t about getting good coffee (that’s a given), its about getting it at place with the ambiance, the feel and the perks you’re looking for.

This guide is a running list to help you navigate your way through the Canggu Café scene and find your place to coffee and chill

Cafés in Batu Bolong

The Best Cafes in Canggu (A Bali List By A Brother Abroad)

 

Sensorium

The new kid on the block in Canggu and much more restaurant than coffee shop.  Opened by an Indonesian chef who spent a decade working in Singapore, Japan, and Australia, and wanted to get creative in a [hipster] area that would appreciate it, this cafe does coffee and lunch/dinner food pretty damn well.

Price Range: $$

Hours: 9AM to 8PM Daily, 9AM to 4PM Weekends

Location: On Batu Bolong Beach area’s main road, a 5 minute drive from the beach

www.SensoriumBali.com


Machinery Café Bali

A tiny joint with a handful of tables, great coffee &smoothies, realy fast internet and a couple of boardgames hidden.  A great alternative to Starbucks (though it has the same vibe) as its good for work or a sit down cup of coffee

Price Range: $

Hours: 7:30AM to 8PM

Location: On Batu Bolong Beach area’s main road, a 5 minute drive from the beach

Machinery Café Google Maps Location, No, Jl. Pantai Batu Bolong No.35, Canggu, Kuta Utara, Kabupaten Badung

Hidden behind a nest of greenery, this cafe claims to be about “Coffee, healthy food, & grilled food.”  Open air, quaint, and casual.

Price Range: $

Hours: 8AM to 10PM

Location: On Batu Bolong Beach area’s main road, a 5 minute drive from the beach


Vida Café

Excellent for a morning coffee as it arguably has the nicest view that isn’t a beach or rice field. I’m a fan of the huge trees growing in the courtyard, right through the tables that you can dine out.  The food isn’t necessarily worth the price (in my opinion), but the coffee and vibe is excellent.

Though the wifi is fast, don’t plan on hanging here for an extended period as there are clear signs asking digital nomads, and anyone else workin on a laptop to limit their stay. Its still a great place for a cup of coffee though.

Price Range: $$

Hours: 7AM to 10:30PM

Location: On Batu Bolong Beach area’s main road, a 5 minute drive from the beach

Cafe Vida Google Maps Location, Jl. Pantai Batu Bolong No.38A, Canggu, Kuta Utara

The Loft Canggu

An awesome layout makes this a great place to enjoy a cup of coffee as it’ll be comfy no matter where you sit.  The upstairs (a literal ‘loft’) has a great ambiance, but the streetside cafe style seating is just as great.  Healthy eating options and great cocktails/wine make the Loft Canggu an all day option

Canggu Cafes near Echo Beach


Canteen Café

Of all the cafes in Canggu, this is possibly my favorite spot. Solid coffee and even better brunch.  An extreme plus – any coffee can be made with coconut milk instead.  Fair warning – everything I’ve tried on this menu is deliciously addictive. Great healthy options

Price Range: $$

Location: Located between Batu Bolong Beach and Echo Beach, 3 minutes from either

Canteen Cafe Google Maps Location, 80361, Jl. Batu Mejan No.33, Canggu, Kuta Utara


Indosole | Coffee

Possibly the most interesting “cafe” in Canggu. Indosole. An eco-conscious local brand that started off making shoes and sandals out of car tires (think Tom’s and Havaiianas in one). The team opened a flagship store in Canggu showcasing its sandals and shoes, then connected a coffee shop to it, and that same coffee shop becomes a bar and swanky restaurant at night…with a dimly lit, glass encased, pillow laden patio that looks out on the rice fields at nice.

I’ve been to the Tom’s shoes stores in Austin and Venice Beach and Indosole accomplished an extreme one up here.  This place is a must see.

Price Range: $$

Hours: 8AM to 9PM

Location: 3 mins from Echo Beach
