seminyak beach

There’s something about the restaurants and cafes in Bali. There’s only one way to put it – they’re all just so damn cute, and well, Instagrammable. There’s an endless number of foodie hot spots popping up in the suburbs along the coast of Bali, and the best part is, they also serve mouth-wateringly delicious food to go with the super cute vibe!

To perfect your Insta feed during your time in Bali and make sure you hit up all the best places to eat, here’s where you need to start.

1. Sea Circus, Seminyak

Sea Circus might just be our favourite breakfast spot in all of Bali. It might be because of the colourful mural that lines the outside of the restaurant, or the impeccable wait service inside, or the fact that the valet guys will cover your scooter seat while you’re having breakky so it doesn’t burn your bum when you come back outside.

Or it could simply just be the fact that the food is absolutely delicious and one visit just isn’t enough.

Recommendation: Snickers Protein Smoothie

Address: 22 Jl. Kayu Aya, Seminyak

Open: 7:30 until late daily

2. Neon Palms, Seminyak
