There is no lack of pretty cafes in Bali but one newbie in Seminyak deserves a special mention—Coffee Cartel.
This cafe has been getting so much attention on Instagram and it is not difficult to understand why. The cafe is MADE for Instagram with its numerous photo opportunities—from OOTD corners, a huge mural to the prettiest food and drinks.
We paid a visit to this LA-inspired cafe and here’s what we loved about Coffee Cartel, Bali.
Bali is an Indonesian island that is extremely popular among tourists because within the island itself, there is much to see and do. The island boasts activities catering to both young and old—there are gorgeous beaches, exciting night clubs and not forgetting the wonderful Balinese food.
Towards the southern region of Bali is Seminyak, an upscale area catering to those who are into the latest fashion hauls, fine restaurants, luxury spas and the hottest bars in town. You are likely to find something unique at every turn—be it a lovely concept cafe or an up-and-coming themed restaurant and bar.
Seminyak has so many great restaurants, cafes, eateries and bars and it is impossible to cover the area within three days. For starters, here’s our 3D2N Seminyak Eating Itinerary to show you the best places you should not be missing out.
Caffeine addicts who have been to Bali would know that excellent coffee can be found in many coffee shops there. So it is unsurprising that we have found yet another cafe that has been building its reputation on great coffee—The Koop Roaster & Cafe.
No effort has been spared in sourcing for their own green Arabica coffee beans from the local farms in Bali and the baristas make it a point to roast their own coffee beans too. Do not be shy to spend on their specialty coffee and baked items such as Carrot Cake and Banana Bread.
Give this homey cafe a chance the next time you are looking for a place to chill and have a hearty breakfast in Seminyak. READ ON
