Best Bali cafes with a view

We’re not exaggerating when we say Bali has one of the prettiest cafes we’ve ever seen. Thanks to the island’s hilly landscape and lush paddy fields, all you need to do is set up a cosy cafe with a nice view, and foodies will come flocking.

From work-friendly options to ones that open as early as 5:30am, we’ve got you covered with these eight hidden Bali cafes with views straight out of a picture book.

1. Ritatkala Cafe

Located along the main Kintamani Road, Ritatkala Cafe offers a panoramic view of three mountain peaks—Mount Batur, Mount Abang, and Mount Agung—that’ll look absolutely stunning on your Instagram feed. The cafe is popular for those who’d like to enjoy a cuppa after their sunrise hike, with most diners opting to relax at their outdoor terrace overlooking the majestic Lake Batur.

If the sun gets too intense, duck inside and cool off at one of the cafe’s window seats, or order some food to replenish your energy. We recommend the Nasi Goreng Salmon (IDR55K++/~S$4.97++), the Bihun Goreng Ayam (IDR55K++/~S$4.97++) for something local, or the Banana Pancakes (IDR40K++/~S$3.61++) if you prefer something lighter on the stomach.

Tea enthusiasts can also order the Ritatkala Tea (IDR40K++/~S$3.61++), featuring a refreshing blend of ginger, apple, and lemongrass. If that’s not your cup of tea, the cafe also has coffee from IDR20K++ (~S$1.81++) and fresh juices from IDR30K++ (~S$2.71++).

Address: Jalan Raya Kintamani, Batur Selatan, Kecamatan Kintamani, Kabupaten Bangli, Bali 80652

2. Cafe Pomegranate

Housed in an open-air safari canvas tent, Cafe Pomegranate is the best place to soak in mesmerising views of Ubud’s lush rice fields. The menu here is pretty interesting, as it offers Japanese, Mexican, Indonesian, Italian, and even Singaporean cuisine!

Founded by two Japanese brothers, the hidden cafe is a 15-minute walk away from Raya Ubud and Ubud Market. It’s not the easiest place to get to, but the trip down is worth it once you catch a glimpse of Mount Agung and Mount Batukaru, both of which are visible from the cafe’s premises.

Try their hearty Bonito Pizza (IDR71K++/~S$6.42++) that’s layered with salted fish, onions, mashed tofu, and mozzarella, or the Singapore Wantan Noodles (IDR78K++/~S$7.05++), which sees the familiar egg noodles topped with char siew, mushrooms, spring onions, and shrimp dumplings.

Another Ubud cafe with other-worldly views is Cafe Lotus, which overlooks the iconic Saraswati Temple and its beautiful lotus pond. The family-run eatery has been around since 1983, and is known for incorporating organic products from the family’s own backyards into their traditional Balinese menu.

While the views from Cafe Lotus are priceless, the food here is relatively affordable too, considering the big portions. Their Babi Kecap costs IDR95K++ (~S$8.59) and stars pork loin marinated in kecap manis, served with garlic, shallots, coriander, tomato sauce, achar, and steamed rice. Otherwise, try the Crispy Duck Wings (IDR65K++/~S$5.88++)––deep-fried marinated duck wings with cayenne, garlic, and a side of tartar sauce.

If you’re looking to feast, opt for their Tetragona Set Menu (IDR245++/~S$22.16++) instead, which gets you a three-course meal with soto ayam, grilled fish, and pisang goreng for dessert.

Address: Ubud Main Road, Ubud, Kecamatan Ubud, Kabupaten Gianyar, Bali 80571

4. Nook Bali

This off-the-path cafe and warung is hidden away in a serene paddy field, and best of all, it’s within walking distance from Seminyak’s main street.

Wooden tables and benches set the stage, along with rattan chairs, plush pillows and bamboo light fixtures to complete Nook’s relaxing open-air space.

Start your morning right at Montana Del Cafe as you dig into Western fusion cuisine against a scenic mountainous backdrop. The cafe’s design is inspired by a greenhouse, which explains the high ceiling, touches of green, and floor-to-ceiling windows.

Monta Del Cafe’s main calling is their Instagrammable photo spot: a huge net suspended on the upper floor’s outdoor terrace. It can get crowded just before sunset, so be sure to come early if you can.

We also recommend their house-made dessert, the Brioche French Toast (IDR48K/~S$4.34++).

For food, the cafe has light bites including the Taco Belly (IDR50K++/~S$4.52++), comprising pork belly and guacamole drizzled in tonkatsu sauce, and sandwiched in flour tortillas. The Nasi Goreng Ijo (IDR45K++/~S$4.07++) is another popular item, starring a plate of fragrant fried rice with kaffir lime leaves and candlenut paste, along with onion crackers, pickled cucumber, an egg, and your choice of seafood or chicken.

To curb your food coma, go for a shot of Vietnam Drip Coffee (IDR25K++/~S$2.26++), or the Golden Latte (IDR30K++/~S$2.71++), a non-caffeinated option consisting of a blend of turmeric, ginger, brown sugar, cinnamon, and milk.

If Ritatkala Cafe and Montana Del Cafe are too crowded, try your luck at Akasa Kintamani Coffee. This cafe-roastery spans three floors, complete with an indoor dining area and an al fresco patio with views of Mount Batur and Lake Batur.
