1. Baked – best pastries spot

A great day starts with a great breakfast! Right? This place is one of the best bakeries in Canggu and it has such a nice contemporary design and yummy food! Croissants, sourdough bread (which you must try if you haven’t as it’s so delish), creamy poached eggs, you name it!

2. Mostly by Zest – best sushi spot 

Your taste buds will go crazy once they try the sushi at this Canggu restaurant! And don’t worry if you’re vegetarian, they’ve got some interesting options for you as well that I’ve tried and really liked!

I would definitely mix and match and try the sushi as well as some dumplings, and even the cauliflower BBQ. Great food, a cool vibe and of course and some refreshing drinks will make your lunch date at Mostly an unforgettable experience! 

Location: Jl. Pantai Pererenan No.114

Who doesn’t love a good old Instagrammable place to eat? You’ll find many places in Bali like that and this Canggu restaurant is one of them. Perfect for breakfast or lunch they serve super fresh food including mouth-watering pancakes and Russian dumplings!

Of course, they also serve great coffee and some refreshing drinks which you can enjoy on their little terrace or inside where you can admire the whole decor better. 

Location: Jl. Tanah Barak No.47

4. Cinta Cafe – amazing rice fields views

Lunch with a view of the Balinese rice fields? Yes, please! This famous cafe offers such a beautiful setting and a great vibe! Oh yeah and such good coffee that you’ll want to come back for more! 

If you’re coming with your little ones then you’ll be happy to know there’s a kid’s playground! But coming back to the food, I think you should definitely try their smoothie bowl if you’re craving something sweet. I also hear their hummus is also pretty fantastic (and a great dish if you need some grounding)! 

Location: Jl. Pantai Berawa No.69

5. Woods – cool place with live music 

If you like live music then definitely pay a visit to this cool Canggu restaurant this weekend as they play jazz music! What I liked about this place was the natural wood aesthetic and its vibrant atmosphere!

Of course, the fact that they had an amazing choice of high-quality teas (they even call it a library) was a big plus! They also had lots of healthy goodies including a yummy shakshuka, lots of colorful fruit bowls and other tempting dishes. 

Location: Jl. Dalem Lingsir No.8

6. Honey – for a sweet breakfast 

Start your morning with some quality food at this awesome restaurant! Whether you order their smoothie bowl, ricotta pancakes, avocado toast, or anything else from the super appealing menu, it’ll be a good choice!

And yes, the coffee is strong. You can enjoy it inside, as they have a nice decor, super simple and modern or take it to go and head to Echo Beach if you’re too eager to sit on the sandy shores. 

Location: Jl. Pantai Pererenan No.132

7. Rize – best vegan restaurant 

Having a hard time finding the best restaurants in Canggu that serve vegan dishes? Well, I think you should give this place a try! They kind of serve a Western cuisine with an Indian twist which will throw your taste buds over the roof!

Definitely give their dosa masala a try, and if you’re in the mood for something fruity their dragon bowl is also a must, or the pancakes for those who have a sweet tooth! 

Location: Jl. Pantai Pererenan No.150

8. Sensorium – great fusion restaurant 

I know no one likes to wait in the morning for anything, especially food! But trust me, this place is so worth it even though there is a small waiting time if you’re coming in during rush hour. 

What I liked about this place was the super interesting Asian twist to the food, like Korean scrambled eggs and other interesting dishes. I think you should also give their ice cream sandwich a try especially if you dig the combination of sweet and salty!

Location: Jl. Pantai Batu Mejan

9. Touché – tranquil spot

I’m a major foodie, but I always like to have healthy meals that are prepared fresh! If you feel the same then check out this cafe in Canggu that is famous for its fluffy soufflé pancakes and yummy salads!

Offering a great location in the Petitenget area, this place is just perfect for pastries lovers! Their croissants and pain au chocolate are so yummy and go perfectly with a coffee. 

Still, if you’re not a fan of a sweet bite in the morning I’d recommend trying their Benedict eggs with Hollandaise sauce. And maybe freshly-made cold pressed juices? Sounds so delicious that I might eat that really soon!

Location: Jl. Petitenget No.88X

12. Clear Cafe – delicious smoothie bowls

Just like its brother in Ubud, this place in Canggu really cares about the food quality and you can see that in every dish they prepare! Smoothie bowls, pad thai, you name it, they make everything taste and look absolutely delicious!

It’s not a rule for all food served at a restaurant, but most of the time you can really tell by the color of each plate and dish how fresh or good the food is. Definitely give that a try and tell me your opinion!

Location: Jl. Tanah Barak No.31

15. Machinery – for a cheap & tasty breakfast 

Although spacious restaurants and terraces are some of the best ones, every now and then I feel like everyone feels the need to head somewhere small and cozy, where you can eat something super tasty!

And if it’s affordable then even better! I mean who doesn’t like a breakfast at just US$3? Delicious smoothies, wraps, eggs and lots of other dishes are waiting to be tried at Machinery, one of the best restaurants in Canggu!

Location: No, Jl. Pantai Batu Bolong

16. The Falafel Temple – for Middle Eastern dishes

We’ve got to give credit where credit is due! And the Middle Eastern cuisine is surely one of the best ones! There’s something about how they combine the ingredients and dishes that make my taste buds go crazy! 

If you’re a fan as well, then I recommend this place in Canggu! They serve a 10/10 Baba Ganoush as well as other dishes like hummus and yummy salads!
