16 Best Breakfasts in Canggu, Bali

From smoothie bowls in cafés overlooking beautiful rice fields, to sidewalk stall avocado toast, here’s where to find the best breakfasts in Canggu, Bali.

Have you been to Bali yet? It’s one of the most popular islands in Asia for a reason! The Island of Gods is a green jewel surrounded by stunning ocean. This lush Indonesian island, located between Java and Lombok is home to glittering beaches, beautiful rice fields, and active volcanoes. You could head to Kuta for vibrant nightlife or relax in a 5-star resort in Nusa Dua.

Surfing - one of the top things to do in Canggu

But Bali is more than just a spot for a romantic holiday. It’s also a paradise for foodies. Among its many foodie destinations, the small beachside town of Canggu, stands out as a culinary hotspot. This region has rapidly transformed from a sleepy fishing village into a bustling hub of culture, surf and delectable cuisine. 

I love Bali for its laid-back and relaxed lifestyle. You can go to bed when you like, wake up in the dawn or the mid-morning heat, and eat at any time of the day or night.

Smoothie bowls are like paintings and pancakes are risen like light souffles!

And then there are the “porncakes”: Brunch Club’s crowning glory. These famous pancakes demand a 30-minute wait, but it’s worth it! These are the fluffiest souffle pancakes you’ll find anywhere in Bali. They come in ten different flavours of soft, creamy decadence! Go on, try it!

Mile End

This slice of Canada in Bali is a Canggu institution. It’s inspired by the trendy Mile-End district of Montreal. This region is known for its classic bagel shops, indie music scene, bustling brunch locations, and vibrant cocktail lounges. And now, this Canadian-owned hotspot in Canggu brings a slice of that culture to Bali.

Set right in the heart of town, just a short walk from the beach, you can kick off your breakfast (or brunch…no judgment!) with a Vanilla Heaven or Banana Chai milkshake. You can find a palm tree-fringed nook on the patio for an intimate brekkie, get some work done at a window bench, or join the crew at a big table for the best brunch in Canggu that might just last until dinner.


Keeping it super simple is the order of the day at this classy little bakery/cafe in the busy heart of Canggu.
