Ruko Cafe – relaxing brunch spot

 

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.

Lunch

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?

Breakfast

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 loveliest ‘Secret Spot’ in Canggu, Bali

 

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 pod with 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 Spot is 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!
