Your Cuppa Joe in Seminyak Bali
Listed below are four cafes and restaurants serving delicious coffee to kick start your day, serve as a pick-me-up after a shopping spree or the perfect location for a lazy afternoon. All these places are located less than 15 minutes’ walking distance from Chandra Bali Villas.
1. Coffee Cartel
Dominting the Seminyak cafe and coffee scene is Coffee Cartel. Their robust menu of breakfast treats, Australia cafe favourites (like smashed avocado) and even vegan hotcakes that look like a colour explosion is what has been drawing in customers until recently. Offering a variety of brews such as syohin, areopress, viet drip plus their very own onsite roasted blend – Coffee Cartel are changing the game in more ways than one. Insta-famous for their ripple machine, where you can print an image or text on the foam layer atop your freshly roasted cup cappucino or lattè. Did we mention they can even make your coffee the cutest shade of pink?

If the relaxed Bali feel has taken over and you can’t get out of your pool or sunbed, your private villa at Chandra is equipped with its own coffee machine as well. Additionally, the chef serves coffee to die for! Sip on a freshly brewed latte in the morning or finish off your meal with an espresso. Sometimes the most tantalizing and heavenly coffee could be in your own backyard.
**If we may, we would like you to make note; if you are a fan of almond milk lattes, Mrs Sippy Bali take the award for having the best in town. The downside is that entry to the day club costs IDR 200,000 – but if you do go, don’t miss it.
