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.
In this post:
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
Sister restaurant to Sea Circus, and located just around the corner from them too, Neon Palms is like an explosion of colour, with jungle murals on the walls, lots of greenery and unique light fixtures, and a bright pink bench out the front that’s just begging for you to take a photo!
Recommendation: Tacos, tapas & cocktails
Address: Jl. Kayu Aya No. 22, 2nd Floor, Seminyak
Open: 7:30am to 10:00pm daily
3. Crate, Canggu
It might not look like much when you’re driving past, but step inside and Crate one of the most popular places to eat in Changgu, offering some of the best breakfast you can get in Bali!

4. Mrs Sippy, Seminyak
Ditch the traditional cafes and restaurants for a day and head to Mrs Sippy in Seminyak. Boasting the largest salt water pool in Bali, Mrs Sippy offers delicious cocktails and poolside snacks, and is the perfect place to relax for the day. For the ultimate experience, book a poolside daybed to kick back and chill when you need a break from the water.
The only downside of Mrs Sippy is that it is incredibly expensive for Bali. To make the most of your day it’s difficult to stick to a budget and prices can quickly add up, especially when tax and services are added at the end of the bill.
