Biku Bali

I love Biku because of the added quirk, the styling and wall hangings give this place such a good vibe! It is usually fairly quiet during the days and the service is super fast! The tables are nice and big for working and if you sit upstairs you will probably have the floor to yourself.

Revolver

Hidden up an alleyway, if you didn’t know it existed you would most certainly miss it. Two words. THE COFFEE. Speak to anyone and they will say “The coffee is as good (if not better) as in Australia”.  I only ever worked here for a few hours at a time as its quite dark and lacks air flow- still one not to miss, though!

Sisterfields

If you are a regular to Bali you will know why Sisterfields is one of the best Seminyak cafes! Sisterfields represents the iconic café culture of Australia, bringing a love of good food and great coffee to the heart of Seminyak, Bali.

This is probably my next favourite, the food here is fantastic- get the Vietnamese Roll! Although quite busy and a tad noisy, I love to sit at the bench that overlooks the street and people watch in between writing! It really has a fantastic vibe!

Batik

Opened in late April this restaurant sits in the center of Laksmana (Kayu Ayu) in Seminyak.  I was lucky enough to get a tour with the manager who went through all the steps in the design process. It is a mix of traditional Indonesian elements and furnishings with hints of Scandi and French. (full restaurant review coming soon).

What I really liked about this place was the inspiration and atmosphere. The days are fairly quiet so you can work away in a stunning environment and is why this is a top Seminyak cafe!
