Join me as I share my tried and tested recommendations for the best breakfast hotspots in Bali. The list below is NOT in order of deliciousness…..but my top 13 favourites of the moment for you to work your way through…..


Disclaimer: I am vegetarian, so none of the below ‘favourite dishes’ are those that include meat.

 

1. Shelter Bali

Located just a stone's throw away from our villas, Shelter Bali is an absolute favourite of mine and known for its relaxed ambiance and delectable breakfast options. Whether you're craving a hearty omelette, fluffy pancakes, or a nourishing smoothie bowl, this cosy spot has you covered. Located of Jalan Drupadi, you'll head upstairs through a small boutique of beautiful little trinkets where you'll then sit amongst the tree-tops to begin your experience. Shelter has a real jungle like feel, yet locate din the heart of Seminyak. I am such a fan of the Folded Eggs + extras, that I really have not eaten a lot of other options from the menu. I just cant go past them....and could you after looking at my photo!


MY FAVOURITE DISH:

Folded Eggs add Smashed Avo and hashbrowns!




2. Sea Circus

Prepare to be enchanted by the vibrant and playful atmosphere at Sea Circus. This lively café is the perfect place to indulge in a scrumptious breakfast while soaking in Bali's laid-back and chilled vibes. From avocado toast to indulgent French toast, their menu is a delightful fusion of flavours and creativity and a whole load of colour.


They also offer some great nightly specials and you'll likely find some good cocktail specials as well.


I love the little fortune note that you will receive with each coffee.

For a dose of artisanal coffee and exceptional breakfast fare, look no further than Revolver Espresso. This iconic café exudes a rustic charm and is renowned for its delectable pastries, hearty breakfasts, and, of course, expertly crafted coffee that will likely leave you saying; ‘That’s one of the best coffees in Bali’. You can even buy beans to take home to continue the experience. We love Revolver as its so convenient and only 100m away from Saudara Sunshine and Saudara Love, making it a super easy stroll once you're up and about. They are open late, so a great place to pop in for an Espresso Martini on the way home.

This hidden little gem; Local Coffee is a hidden gem that boasts a laid-back ambiance and a casual menu that will appeal to all. The coffee is a specialty and consistently good!.

Make sure if you come here, you have a few good hours up your sleeve. Make the most of the unlimited coffees, juices and food and the view that will really make you realise that you’re on holidays. Choose items from the menu and they will be prepared fresh for you whilst you can visit additional stations offering pastries, cereals, sweet cakes and fruit.

A true hidden gem, Big Boss Warung captures the essence of local flavours and traditional breakfast favourites all done simply and well. This local little 'warung' has really excelled to embrace Western culture and fare with their hearty breakfast spreads and amazing local coffee. ‘Warung’ means “local place to eat” and this beautiful local family have done an amazing job of bringing both western culture and local culture together to please everyone with prices that keep everyone happy.

10. Brunch Club

Nestled on the main street of Legian, Brunch Club is an absolute must experience(at least once) for those keen on well portioned and delicious menu. If you have kids, then you need to take them to experience the pancakes and watch their faces light up as the staff make them wobble as they arrive at the table. Perfectly round, perfectly sweet and my gosh….they make for a perfect photo. They are like nothing you will have ever seen in your life!(or tasted) Much like a sweet soufflé....on steroids! There are so many other menu options if a sweet brekkie isn't your jam.



MY FAVOURITE DISH:  

Strawberry Crumble Porncakes

 

11. Fresco

A cute experience for a morning treat. Fresco, where breakfast is elevated to an art form and has a taste to back it up! Located on Jalan Padma in Legian, Fresco offers a refreshing take on morning dining, with fun and friendly menu items that are ALL so appealing. An easy walk from Seminyak if you take the beach path that runs between Seminyak and Kuta. Whether you're in the mood for a traditional Balinese breakfast or a Western-inspired feast, Fresco will appeal to everyone. A super cute fit out where you can sit indoors or outdoors and watch the world pass you by. I particularly love a coffee here as the mugs are HUGE!

12. Crumb & Coaster

Prepare to be enchanted by the cozy charm of Crumb & Coaster. I discovered this place on my first trip back after Covid when many other places were not open. They maintained open the entire time and this is absolutely a testament to their amazing food, service and obvious resilience. A truly special cafe that embodies the essence of Bali's vibrant culinary scene. A little further away from Seminyak than my other suggestions, but well worth the visit. Located in Kuta and easily accessible by the path that runs the whole way between Seminyak and Kuta, making for a perfect treat after a morning walk. Known for its artisanal pastries, freshly baked bread, and exceptional breakfast fare, this inviting spot is a must-visit for anyone seeking a delightful morning repast. Indulge in a flaky croissant, a gourmet breakfast sandwich, or a seriously good cup of coffee as you enjoy the hospitality of Crumb & Coaster. Oh did I mention the coffee.....it's sooooooo good!


MY FAVOURITE DISH:

13. Biku

Biku Seminyak is a charming and eclectic eatery located in the bustling Seminyak are and has been around for years, most well known for their high-teas and tarot readings. The building itself has just recently re-located up the road. For those that visited the old venue, you'll be amazed how they have been able to re-create the exact same atmosphere and vibe at the new location, buy literally dismantling the building piece by piece and re-building it exactly on its new terrain. Renowned for its unique blend of traditional Indonesian charm and colonial British decor, Biku offers a tranquil ambiance that feels like a step back in time. When it comes to breakfast, Biku does not disappoint. My favourite dish has to be the poached eggs and the reason is that they are served on a homemade buttermilk cheddar and chive scone rather than your standard toast!! The morning menu does also feature a variety of options, ranging from the classic Eggs Benedict to more exotic local dishes like Nasi Goreng. Guests can also indulge in freshly baked pastries, tropical fruits, and healthy smoothie bowls topped with granola and local honey. The tea selection at Biku is particularly extensive, with a variety of aromatic blends that perfectly complement any breakfast choice.


MY FAVOURITE DISH:

Soft Poached Eggs with a side of smashed avocado
