Cheeky smoothies and vegan deliciousness at Betelnut Cafe

 

Imagine a cafe with a hut like feeling, bamboo, wood and tropical green surrounded by Bali’s palm trees. I personally love going to this cafe because of it’s buzzing atmosphere, it’s loving people but especially for it’s delicious vegan food. This menu is so vibrant and will make any non-vegan turn vegan in no-time.

 

What I get

Lunch

My two ultimate favourite salads are both the ‘Veggie patch‘ (50k Idr/ 2.60 Gbp) and the ‘Raw Gado Gado‘ salad (45k Idr/ 2.60 Gbp). The ‘Veggie patch‘ is made with roasted pumpkin, beetroot, rucola, shallots, cashews and spinach. You can only imagine how many textures, flavours and colours make up the perfect summery salad. However, the ‘Raw Gado Gado‘ salad is a must try. It consists of spinach, rucola, cabbage, tofu, tempe, carrot, coconut, cucumber, sprouts and tomato which is then topped off with a deliciously home-made peanut sauce. This is the ultimate Balinese salad, which is refreshing and bursting with flavours.

 

 

Dinner

If I’m in for a real treat I usually get the ‘Veggielicious burrito‘ (50k Idr/ 2.60 Gbp) or the ‘Veggie burger‘ (50K Idr/ 2.60 Gbp). The ‘Veggie burger‘ consists of a home-made vegetable patty with fresh greens, slaw and tomato relish in a toasted wholewheat bun. I personally have tried many vegan burgers in the last years and I have to say that this is definitely one if the best ones, especially in Canggu.

Snacks

At Betelnut Cafe they have the most delicious juices and smoothies. My favourite smoothie is one (which is a bit of a cheeky one) called the ‘Chunky Monkey‘ (40k Idr/ 2.10 Gbp). It’s made with banana, cashew butter, dates, flax seeds, muesli, ginseng, maca, cacao and coconut milk. Trust me, the cheekiest but best smoothie you’ll ever taste! Another smoothie that is absolutely delicious is called ‘Nutters‘ (40k Idr/ 2.10 Gbp). If you are a real nutty lover like I am you will love this one! It’s made with almond milk, cacao, dates, cashews, coconut, ginseng, maca and flax seeds – healthy, yummy and a real treat!

 

 

Where to go

Betelnut Cafe is open everyday from 8am- 10pm and their address is Jl. Pantai Batu Bolong No.60 in Canggu.

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!

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’)
