Burgers, bikes, tattoos and live music at Deus Ex Machina, Bali


One of the trendiest spots in Canggu is Deus Ex Machina. Here you can wonder around in a shop in which you can buy anything that you can call trendy! From surfboards and backpacks to bikes and watches. Buy yourself a brand new surfboard then have a seat in the garden where you can enjoy a delicious burger to celebrate!

Deus Ex Machina has a great atmosphere and its an amazing spot for a delicious dinner and a beer! Or visit on my favourite night which happens to be ‘Tacos-N-Tatt-Teusday‘! Every Tuesday you can enjoy a delicious plate of tacos, a freshly made margarita and of course if you are lucky a whole new tattoo that will be done on the spot! 

Tuesday nights aren’t the only fun nights as every day of the week there is a different event. From ‘Aperitivo Saturdays‘ to ‘Sunday roasts Sundays‘.



What I love

For breakfast I love getting the Açai Smoothie bowl (80k Idr/4.20 Gbp). It consists of blended açai with strawberry and banana topped with granola and fresh chia seeds. Its extremely refreshing and super fruity.

For a great lunch I usually get the ‘Pumpkin hummus on rye bread‘ (55k Idr/2.90 Gbp). The bread is thick and crunchy with an amazing pumpkin hummus, topped with sesame seeds and alfalfa – creating a perfect simple plate with delicious flavours.



If you are a pumpkin lover like I am I definitely recommend you to try the ‘Roast Pumpkin soup‘ (50k Idr/2.60 Gbp). This soup is an amazing lunch or perfect as a starter when having dinner. The soup is creamy, comforting and extremely flavoursome. Dip in some of the crunchy gluten free bread and you’ve got yourself a healthy and delicious meal!

When having dinner its always nice to enjoy the live music, great atmosphere and a drink with some comforting food. I personally love the ‘Vegetarian burger‘ (70k Idr/3.65 Gbp) they serve here as it tastes clean, healthy and delicious! The burger consists of a lentil patty topped with tomatoes, lettuce and mashed avocado. Its full of flavour and textures – crunchy bread, fresh tomatoes, smooth avocado and a deliciously flavoured lentil patty. It comes with a side of fries or a crunchy salad, I always choose the salad as for me it adds even more fresh flavours and of course some green goodness!

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’)
