Never skip breakfast.
CRATE Cafe was created to serve the yummy needs of the Creative Canggu Community with our blend of CRATE Coffee.
It’s not just because brekkie is said to be the most important meal of the day, but rather, with all the scrumptious breakfast options in Canggu, you wouldn’t want to miss out on breakfast.
There’s nothing better than an early roast or fresh smoothie, paired with one of the most worthy meals.
Crate Café’s hipster décor meets an impeccable presentation of food platters and shakes.
Everything about Crate Cafe is “Instagrammable.” The food needs no filter because it tastes as good, if not better, than it looks. You’ll be going back for the food, not the picture.
Cafe-owner Maree Suteja, who is in her 50′s, may well be spending as much time on Instagram as her two social-media obsessed children who are in their 20′s.
The former school teacher moved from Australia to Bali, Indonesia where she opened Crate Cafe — known as an “Instagrammers paradise” to tourists, expats and locals.
Suteja designed Crate to attract social media users. The bistro has a minimalist, warehouse-inspired ambiance with bright, natural sunlight streaming into the restaurant. There are displays of unique artwork all around and its dishes are presented in a picture-perfect form.
“Anyone can do a bacon and eggs,” she said. “But how do you make it so that any photo you look at, you know it’s a Crate bacon and egg?”
She attributes the majority of her business to customers discovering her restaurant on Instagram. The restaurant’s Instagram account has amassed more than 47,000 followers and features a combination of food and people posing before they tuck into their meals.
“Instagram goes hand-in-hand with word-of-mouth,” she said. “You see something on Instagram, you’re going to send it someone or tag a friend. It’s that thing about tagging people and that gets the word out.”
Crate’s main menu offering is breakfast, but it also offers lunch items too. Most mornings, a line forms as people wait to order their food. It is a rare sight in Canggu, the area of Bali where the restaurant is located.
Suteja doesn’t use other social media platforms like Facebook or Twitter to promote her restaurant.
“Through Instagram, people talk. So you’ve got word of mouth through Instagram, emails and your website,” she said. “Do you really need anything else?”
