For years Canggu was that hidden spot north of Seminyak that didn’t get much attention from anyone but surfers.
It was home to very few expats, Deus Ex Machina’s amazing Temple of Enthusiasm and great surf breaks, but nothing more.
Then a few years ago, someone had the amazing idea to open a café serving hearty, healthy options for the surf crowd after their morning session, the idea turned into Betelnut Café in Canggu, a popular local staple that is open from breakfast through dinner.
Hailing from Australia and with experience cooking in France and on surf charters in Indonesia, the Betelnut head chef seeks to use local ingredients and recipes, but adds a wholesome twist.
Betelnut Cafe boasts one of Canggu’s – and debatably Bali’s – best menus that not only tastes good but will leave you feeling energised.
Aside from their famous breakfasts, which include their absolute must-try Naga Bowl (pink dragonfruit, banana, and yoghurt puree topped with granola, shredded coconut, cashews and fruit – think Balinese acai Bowl), they also serve an incredible lunch and dinner menu.
From their burgers to their Big Betelnut Salad – which proves that you can win friends with four salads in one – to their nasi gila, a red-rice nasi-goreng-nasi-campur concoction; you can close your eyes, point anywhere on the menu, and rest assured that your meal will be incredible.
Located only five minutes from Echo Beach in Canggu, Betelnut Cafe serves happy, healthy, nutritious and delicious foods.
With a view over the ricefields Betelnut Cafe offers the perfect place to relax with friends and enjoy cheap, healthy meals focusing on fresh salads, burgers, wraps and changing daily specials including a fish and wok of the day
Have your pick of some form of power food: bowls, eggs or smoothies. Whatever you choose, just know there is no wrong choice.
