Top Healthy Cafes in Bali
But first coffee….
It took a little while for travellers to Bali to be able to find good coffee, let alone a double shot almond latte. The morning brew used to consist of sachets of Indo Café adorning the mini-bar or thick soupy coffee blends served at cafes. But things have really changed in the last few years. The coffee scene is booming, and you will find all the varieties you could ever want to satisfy your caffeine cravings. The quality and options available at most cafes is as good, if not better, than some cafes at home, largely thanks to a large contingent of Australians involved in managing cafes.
Revolver Espresso – Seminyak
The pioneers of great coffee in Bali, it is still one of the best! Now with two locations in Seminyak (keep an eye out for Baby Revolver – blink & you’ll miss it!), they also do great breakfasts.
