The perfect place for an early coffee and breakfast, Rise and Shine.
What is a better way to wake up to then the sound of rustling palm trees, the warm sun shining upon your face and the smell of freshly grounded coffee. Mornings like these will forever make me smile. Here in Bali I have a spot where I can sit down and enjoy a scene just like this.
A cafe named Rise and Shine is one of my favourite spots to have an early breakfast and delicious cup of coffee. The moment I walk in I get greeted by the most amazing and smiliest people around. You know those people that just make you smile the moment you set eyes upon them? Well imagine a cafe full of those happy faces singing along to ‘You’re beautiful’ from James Blunt – how can that not make you smile!
Apart from having the most amazing atmosphere to hang out in they also serve the most delicious coffee! We all know how important coffee is on those early mornings but you can trust me that this place will solve your morning blues.
Sit on the bar and hang out as you see your coffee being freshly made and your breakfast cooked up right in front of you. The sweet smell of pancakes and French toast makes its way through the cafe giving you that homely feeling.
What to get
My usual order here is the ‘Avo on toast’ (55k Idr/2.90 pounds) and I am in love with how simple and good it is. The avocado is always perfectly ripe and its served on whole grain toast with baked tomato, marinated cabbage and coriander. Its such a refreshing and colourful plate.
Other delicious things on the menu are ‘Banana yoyo’ (banana French toast) , ‘Super scramble’ , ‘Veggie sandwich’ and the ‘Fruit boot’ (fresh fruit, granola and chia seed pudding).
However my absolute favourite is of course the coffee! I always get a cappuccino with soya milk and I am the happiest person on earth. The cappuccino (25k Idr/1.30 pounds) is smooth and full of flavour. It has a sweet touch and isn’t bitter or watery like the coffee you normally get served in Bali. Its the perfect wake up call on any morning!
Where to go
They are open everyday from 6am until 2pm and the address is Jl. Padang Linjong No.71a, Canggu, Bali.
I am sure you will love this place and its amazing coffee just as much as I do! In fact, you will find me sipping on a cappuccino at the bar on this very moment! (While secretly singing a long to ‘You’re beautiful’)
