1. Craved

Craved is a popular breakfast and brunch place in Seminyak that focuses on Western flavors.

It gets crowded for breakfast and brunch so you want to get there early to grab a seat or go during an off hour. 

This place serves a variety of breakfast food, smoothie bowls, croissants, lunch options, and salads. If you have any dietary restrictions, the menu has icons to note vegetarian, vegan, food with nuts, non-dairy, gluten-free, and food with pork. 

The portions are generous so you may want to share with others in your group. 

Try the Breakfast of Champion. It’s a huge platter with eggs, avocado, bacon, potato, mushroom, sauteed kale, toasted bread, and other side items. We loved how delicious and hearty everything was, especially with the flavorful side items. 

Another breakfast item to try is the Mushroomami. It has similar side items to the Breakfast of Champion dish with additional avocado, edamame beans, mixed mushroom, and all on a bed of rice. There is sambal in the dish but the spicy level is very mild. 

The smoothie bowls are a popular item to order here since they’re beautifully constructed with fresh fruit. 

We tried the Blood Berries smoothie bowl which was bright pink and purple due to the dragon fruit and topped with strawberries, bananas, and granola. 

We saw a few tables order the Scrambled Eggs Tacos, so we’ll try that on another visit. 

There is indoor and outdoor seating available.

2. Made’s Warung

Established in 1969, Made’s Warung is a popular dining spot in the Seminyak area. Located along the main street, Jl Raya Seminyak, it’s an airy restaurant serving food all day long, including breakfast. 

The menu has a variety of food options such as Indonesian cuisine, Balinese food, Western-style food, pizza, and gelato

The prices are higher than a smaller, hole-in-the-wall warung yet still affordable. The relaxed environment and hang out and the quality of food are worth the price. 

We always order the nasi campur special. It’s a typical Indonesian meal with rice and a variety of side items such as chicken sate skewers, fish, shrimp, vegetables, tempeh, and more. What makes this one special is the large portion size and the delicious flavors with the side items. 

As a heads up, the menu has a regular nasi campur and nasi campur special. The special cost more than the regular one, so you get more food.

Unfortunately, there isn’t a vegetarian nasi campur on the menu but you can ask the waiter to see if they can make a vegetarian version. 

Another recommended dish to try is tuna in Balinese sauce. It comes with a large size piece of grilled tuna, rice, and a side of vegetables. Cooked tuna is a hit or miss, and this place doesn’t overcook the tuna. 

If you’re used to eating Indonesian spice, then this place may disappoint you. The spicy level is very mild, so you’ll want to ask the waiter/waitress to make it extra spicy. 

Made’s Warung has live performances from Friday to Sunday evenings. Hope you can check them out during your dinner. 

  • Friday has live music from 7:30pm to 10:30pm
  • Saturday has salsa dancing from 7:00pm to 11:00pm 
  • Sunday has Balinese dancing at 7:30pm

3. Dod’s Burger

Dod’s Burger is one of the cheap eats in the Seminyak area. Located within a 1-minute walk from Bintang Supermarket, it’s the perfect place for your burger craving. 

This small burger shop has hamburgers, chicken burgers, fish burgers, and vegetarian options (veggie tempeh and veggie potato). If you’re hungry, you can add double or triple beef patties, similar to In-N- Out Burger in the U.S. 

You can also add a side of fries or onion rings and a drink (soda or iced tea) for an extra $1.50 USD. 

The menu also has wraps, salads, and pasta.  

Everything is made to order, so you’ll get the freshest burger and fries here. 

We love the vegetarian tempeh burger and order it every time we visit. It’s a deep-fried tempeh patty with tomato and lettuce fixings. Don’t worry. The patty isn’t a typical mushy veggie patty. With every bite, you taste the tempeh flavor and have the tempeh texture. 

The Classic Dod hamburger is also another burger that we order. The juicy beef patty is flavorful and pairs nicely with the toasted brioche bun. 

There are a few tables and bar stools to enjoy eating inside or outside the shop. Takeaway is also an option.

4. Kookos Cafe

Kookos Cafe is an adorable cafe selling yummy coconut shakes. 

When you enter this place, you’ll experience the fun Santorini, Greece vibes with the blue and white color palette. The seating area has typical tables or fun tables and stools that are perfect for Instagram. The wall also has a bright blue neon light decor of the store’s cute bear logo. 

The menu has about a dozen coconut shakes. The texture is similar to Starbucks Frappuccino iced blended drinks, but this place uses fresh coconut as the base. 

The shakes come in two sizes – small and large. We always upgrade to a larger option as it’s a better value. Plus, the refreshing shakes helps cools us off from Bali’s humid weather. 

The original coconut shake is highly recommended. We loved how every sip has small bits of fresh coconut meat. The shake isn’t too sweet either. 

The other flavors are mouthwatering to try – Coconut Matcha Shake, Coconut Biscoff Shake (and it comes with a Biscoff cookie), and more. 

All of the drinks can be made vegan as regular whipped cream won’t be used in the shake. 

Besides the shakes, Kookos Cafe serves coconut ice cream. You can order one or two scoops. The ice cream has a strong coconut flavor and is very sweet. We prefer the coconut ice cream at Tuckies as the ice cream is creamier and less sweet. 

If you want to order coffee, this place sells espresso, latte, and cappuccino here.

5. Gusto Gelato

Who loves eating gelato? Gusto Gelato needs to be on your list. 

This place has homemade gelato with unique Indonesian flavors. Stop by to try flavors such as lemongrass, tamarind, soursop, sambal (chili), ginger, and other tropical fruits. The flavors change every so often so you can try new flavors on every visit. 

You can get different sizes of gelato and whether you want it in a cone or cup. We had a medium cup with three different flavors and it was enough to share between the two of us. 

The price is inexpensive considering the different ingredients used to make the creamy ice cream. 

As a heads up, this place gets crowded so the lines are long. 

There is indoor and outdoor seating to enjoy your gelato. 

Gusto Gelato is a good place to eat in Bali, Indonesia.

Satisfy your sweet tooth with unique flavors of gelato at Gusto Gelato.

Address: Jl. Mertanadi No.46B, Kerobokan Kelod, Kec. Kuta Utara, Kabupaten Badung, Bali

*Note: There is another Gusto Gelato location in Denpasar.
