In-between all the rice fields and palm trees you can find a little cafe named Ruko Cafe. I love coming here for a quick coffee in the morning or for a delicious brunch. On a typical hot Bali day you can enjoy sitting inside where its nice and cool while you can peak outside through the huge windows. The atmosphere in here is light, vibrant and buzzing but still has a calming energy. I also tend to use this cafe as a work spot on somedays when its not too busy!
What I have
I am in love with their menu. If I fancy something homely, honest and not too fancy then I love coming here for a salad, sandwich or breakfast bowl.
My favourite sandwich is the ‘Go Green‘ (50k Idr/ 2.60 Gbp) which is a toastie with avocado, pesto and spinach. On a hot day it’s always nice to have a salad and the one I always order is the ‘Rainbow salad‘ (55k Idr/ 2.90 Gbp) This salad consist of avocado, sweet peas, carrot, mango, cashew, beetroot, radish, mixed greens, sesame seeds and topped with a citrus ginger tahini dressing – I mean, doesn’t that just sound like a plate from heaven?
For breakfast I love getting the ‘Acai bowl‘ (70k Idr/ 3.70 Gbp) and the ‘Fruit salad‘ (45k Idr/ 2.40 Gbp) which is a plate with coconut yoghurt topped with seasonal fruit and granola. Both are extremely refreshing and of course fruity, which I think is the perfect breakfast! Vibrant and exciting! But of course, my breakfast isn’t complete without a delicious cup of coffee! Ruko Cafe has great coffee which you can order with various different types of plant based milks. Im not too crazy about an espresso here, but they have yummy cappuccino!
They also have lots of freshly made juices and smoothies just to add to your super healthy breakfast or lunch!
Where to go
Ruko Cafe is open everyday from 7.30am – 4pm and their address is Jl. Pantai Berawa No.99 in Canggu.
Im sure you’ll love its atmosphere (and especially their menu) just as much as I do! Enjoy!
The Secret Spot is definitely a little secret spot that you have to check out when you are in Canggu. As soon as you walk in you’ll notice it’s cosiness and the fresh atmosphere due to the green palms which are placed around the cafe. I personally love sitting outside on the roof terrace which allows you to have a look out over a lovely view while you’re drinking your coffee.
At this cafe you can always find a quiet spot to read a book in the corner or you can sit outside and enjoy the sun while playing the guitar. However, if you have a little bit of a sweet tooth then you’ll definitely fall in love with this place! The Secret Spot is specialised in frozen yoghurt! And oh my are they delicious! You can even personalise your frozen yoghurt by choosing any of the delicious toppings, so you can make it as healthy or naughty as you want.
What to have
I personally love coming for breakfast or to have a quick coffee or snack. They serve all kinds of delicious raw snacks and of course their frozen yoghurt is a lovely treat (for non-vegans). The coffee they serve here is absolutely delicious and that is why the non-vegans under us need to try the Affogato as it is out of this world. However, as I said the coffee here really is delicious and it’s definitely a good spot to come for a quick caffeine pickup!
For breakfast I personally love the Chia podwith mango compote topped with granola and strawberries. The mango compote is so refreshing as well as tangy and the granola gives a nice crunch to all the soft flavours and textures. Especially in Bali it’s amazing to start with a refreshing breakfast and this is perfect!
Where to go
The Secret Spotis open everyday from 8am-10pm and the address is Jl. Pantai Berawa no. 44 in Canggu.
So before heading out for a surf get yourself a delicious breakfast and a coffee at this secret spot so you’ll be ready to take on the waves!
Waking up with a freshly made smoothie bowl and a nutty coffee is all you want when you’re living the Bali life. And there is no better place to get a quiet spot at Jikaa on an early morning.
Jikaa is a lovely cafe that’s hidden in-between the rice fields in Canggu. Place yourself onto the comfy couch with a book in your hands and enjoy a quiet moment while the smell of freshly grounded coffee creeps up your nose. For me it’s these moments that make me smile from ear to ear and leaves me feeling mellow and happy. It’s the perfect place to get a quiet piece of mind and enjoy some peaceful time.
Personally I’m a huge coffee freak and I can honestly say that Jikaa has one of the best cappuccino’s in Canggu. The moment you walk in you can already smell the coffee beans, the sound of milk being steamed and cups clinking together fills the room and it automatically makes you crave a coffee. And these cravings are always rewarded with the most delicious cappuccino!
What to order
First things first, a delicious soya cappuccino! This coffee is perfect in strength and the milk doesn’t overpower the delicious coffee taste. After every sip you’ll notice the nutty after taste which gives it its unique flavour. Its soft, yet full of flavour.
The ‘Namaste’ smoothie bowl (48k Idr/ 2.50 Gbp) is one of my favourites and a must try for all the green lovers! It consists of spinach, kale, avocado, strawberry and banana and its topped with sea salt granola, dried coconut and mixed fruit. Its fruity, honest and absolutely delicious.
Where to go
Jikaa is open from Monday until Saturday from 7.30am – 5pm and it’s located on Jl. Pantai Berawa No.1a in Canggu, Bali.
It’s the perfect breakfast spot for any breakfast lover as well as a coffee freak like me!
Who knew that just around the corner there was a cafe that fulfilled any coffee lovers dream! The owner is an award winning barista, which comes as no surprise! The coffee is delicious, full of flavour, nutty and comforting. Even the smell of the grounded coffee hits your nose as soon as you walk into the cute cafe, making any coffee lover feel straight at home.
This is definitely the place to go to if you want a good cup of coffee. You also have a choice between several different types of milk as well as a menu full of differently styled coffees. You can go traditional with a nice cappuccino or get a little more creative and order a ‘Mocha Almond’.
Even though you might just come for the delicious coffee you might want to stay a little longer and get some breakfast! The menu has a variety of vibrant dishes. Plates are full of colour and you can taste the goodness in every bite. Leaving both your body and mind happy and satisfied!
Overall they have an amazing service, lovely people, mind-blowing coffee and delicious food. And as your mind and body are happy, so is your wallet! For everything you get the prices are great! I had an amazing breakfast and ordered a caffe latte with coconut milk (25.000 idr / 1.40 pounds).
