With one of Bali’s earliest dining destinations, Kafe Warisan, under his belt, Chef Nicolas ’Doudou’ Tourneville has gone on to cast his culinary spell on this most sought-after dining experience. Sip a cocktail, seated in plush sofas facing rice fields, and you won’t know you’re right in the middle of Bali’s most populous areas. Do make sure you try the foie gras, for which the venue is so rightly famed.

Bali might seem a strange place to be crafting French pastries, but Rafi Papazian and Gregory Guerguerian say that it was the creativity and passion they found here that charmed them to stay and give voice to their culinary dreams. In 2012, they both decided to leave Paris and set up on the Island of The Gods. And the Balinese are ever-grateful, considering that they make some of the best baked goods in town.

Finding the perfect brew isn’t easy, even on the Island of the Gods where you’ll find coffee shops at every street corner. The Elite Concierge rounds up the 10 best coffee shops on the island, for morning pick-me-ups all the way to after-dinner joes.

Revolver Espresso 

Located down a quiet lane of Seminyak’s bustling main strip, stepping into Revolver is like getting instantly transported to a New York warehouse. With a smaller café, Baby Revolver, in Petitenget, Revolver is also a wholesale coffee supplier. Some say that Revolver revolutionized coffee drinking in Bali since it opened in 2011. We tend to agree.

Seniman Coffee 

Seniman is a boutique coffee roastery. The company provides beans and solutions to independent cafés, restaurants, hotels and domestic coffee distributors. You can order from their website if you’re abroad. An institution in Bali.

Hungry Bird  

Hungry Bird Coffee Roastery has been around since 2013, working with local coffee farms and supplying cafés in Bali and across Indonesia. The award-winning cafe in Canggu respects the process and handles its clients with love. Straight from the hands of the farmer, to those of the roaster, and then the barista, it works toward sourcing great coffee, served with a smile.

Expat. Roasters Brew Bar  

Expat. Roasters began as a passion project to find great coffee. It is driven by a desire to make the best brew in Bali. Exceptional.

Corner House  

Not just a café but a restaurant and bar, Corner House is also known for its delicious food. The Sushi Bowl and Naked Burrito are just as good as their brews.

Monsieur Spoon  

Monsieur Spoon isn’t just a place to get great coffee but sumptuous pastries as well. Rafi Papazian and Gregory Guerguerian have been sharing their dream in Bali, by way of Paris, since the past 7 years and show no signs of slowing down.

The Loft 

Vegan waffles? Acai? A bowl full of halloumi, roasted coconut sweet potato, avocado, probiotic purple cabbage, poached eggs, beetroot and chickpea hummus? Check. Great coffee is an added bonus at The Loft.

Soul in A Bowl  

Soul in a Bowl is located in Sanur with two floors designed to offer comfort in style.
