My Top Three Favorite Places to Eat in Canggu, Bali

Calling all foodies~ Canggu, Bali is known for its aesthetically Instagrammable cafes/co-working spaces and delicious healthy meals, drinks, smoothie bowls you name it…Canggu probably has it! Canggu is a surf town just an hour north of the Denpasar airport in Bali, Indonesia. Canggu is a very popular up and coming tourist destination that draws people and especially digital nomads in because its located right on the beach, offers lots of healing and health wellness opportunities, is affordable to visit and is a central location to different parts of the Bali island. 

Of course one of the most popular things to do in Canggu is to visit the many beautifully decorated cafes. Each cafe is different in its own way and you will not be let down with the great food that is offered. As a digital nomad, I enjoy changing up my work environment, so coming to the cafes is always a great option…plus the food is delicious and cheap. 


Today, I will be talking about my favorite cafes in the Canggu area you must try during your trip to Bali


crate cafe is one of the top rated places to eat in canggu, Bali

Crate Cafe

Crate cafe is a great hangout spot. They constantly have music playing and it's always busy. The rice terrace views, open concept, lots of space to relax, work or just hangout is the reason Crate Cafe is one of my favorites. Crate cafes menu has many healthy meals and all day breakfast. Their salad bowls have to be my favorite thing here. You can get a huge salad that is fully loaded with veggies, protein and more for 60k Rupiah (which is about $3.90 USD). Everything not he menu costs under $5. They have a large variety of smoothies/smoothie bowls and coffee options as well. Who wouldn’t want to eat a cheap, healthy meal right with great vibes across from a beautiful rice terrace?!

Note: Most of the cafes accept credit cards, but do charge a 3% fee. I recommend paying cash and using a Charles Schwab Debit Card to withdraw from ATMs to avoid paying the foreign ATM fees! If you decide to use a credit card, the Capital One venture card won’t charge you fees for using it abroad!
