Anomali coffee, Seminyak

Published by under Food

Mmm, coffee.

If you’re doing a spot of shopping along the Eat Street stretch of Seminyak and the heat is driving you nuts, urbane coffee house Anomali makes for a good rest and recharge-with-caffeine stop along the way around to Jalan Basangkasa (as Jalan Legian eventually becomes known as it heads north).

Review: Butter in Canggu

Published by under Canggu,Food

Bali’s Canggu Club, with its plantation style fans and vast sports fields, isn’t exactly a backpacker mecca.

The double-storey cafe, which has a completely separate section for smokers (rare!) serves excellent coffee, and has an array of coffee machines and paraphernalia (expensive!) … read the full post

One of Bali’s best coffees: Caswell’s

Published by under Food,Seminyak

It won’t win any awards for its decor, atmosphere, or location, but if you’re heading past Simpang Siur from the airport and onto Sunset Road and need a caffeine boost, Caswell’s is the place to make a quick stop. There’s another outlet inside Gourmet Garage in Jimbaran, but I haven’t made it there yet, and … read the full post

Cafe Bali on Laksmana, Seminyak

Published by under Food,Seminyak

If I ever had a little wooden seaside cottage, I’d be asking Cafe Bali who did their decorating and getting their number. I love this place: it’s cute but not sickly sweet, a breezy blend of sophisticated and serene right bang in the middle of the disaster-construction zone that is Jalan Laksmana in Seminyak. Think … read the full post
