G'Day from Melbourne 🌺 Taking things back to Bali, when I wasn't hobbling around on crutches! Leading a glamorous lifestyle right now! Ah well! It could have been worse! Enjoy your week 🌸
When you come up against a force so powerful, you begin to realise just how compelling Mother Nature truly is.
Reflecting on a beautiful morning of chasing unbelievable waterfalls with @justt_joe. As I sit here, deciding what to order for dinner, this little quote from @clearcafeubud makes me stop & think. I realise how thankful I am to have explored these amazing wonders of the world, and to have shared them with someone so special🌼
How A M A Z I N G does this smoothie bowl by @mudracafe look! Opting for the 'Dragon Bowl Z' breakfast smoothie, it really did taste as vibrant as it looks! Full of healthy goodness, & perfect way to start my day! 💕
-The Koop; a little happiness maker-
Eating @thekoopcafe is always filled with relaxed vibes, paired with its organic aesthetics, it is a pleasure to visit. The Koop roasts all its own coffee in- house, which makes it even more of a treat when ordering my usual latte. The Koop 'Afternoon tea/ coffee with cake' promo is real star- I opted for a smooth latte, with a gorgeous chunk of carrot cake with their signature cream cheese frosting- which didn't disappoint, a real bargain for your buck! The 'B.L.A.T' sandwich (B.L.T w/ avocado) was crisp & full of fresh flavours and crunchy handfuls of bacon. Fully satisfying for a brunch option. The 'All day breakfast' with eggs any style were soft boiled & had rich yolks on crispy toasted bread, alongside crunchy bacon & a tomato/ mushroom/ onion pan fried combination full of juicy goodness. YUM. One of our favourite brunch spots in Seminyak! Definitely try the carrot cake, or one of their raw dessert tarts!
I hope you all have a happy, healthy & COLOURFUL new year! ✨Practice self- love, be kind to yourself, & be kind to others, most importantly enjoy your life as it's the only one you've got!
Obviously taking full advantage of @justt_joe 's Birthday & having a full on cheat day to see in the New Year! 🍩
-Lunch in the tropics-
It's safe to say that visits to @cafeorganicbali should be kept out of peak time lunch hours if you'd like a quiet table. The place was bustling with chatter and filled with laughter. But sadly the service seemed to suffer slightly compared to our last visit. We could see the Cafe Organic team were rushed off their feet, but tables around us seemed to be having a spot of bother too. None the less, the food presentation was vibrant and inviting, & the taste was flavoursome- but the portions were a bit smaller than we had imagined! (Especially as we were SUPER hungry!) The 'Blueberry Pancakes' had lots of juicy fruits such as dates, strawberries & cashews, but they were a little thin/ crispy for me & lacked blueberries! The 'Afrika' smoothie bowl was very slight, and could have been packed full of more delicious fruit, for the price. 'The Potato Rosti' did have some great flavour & a crispy outside, but again could have done with slight improvements. I may sound like I'm moaning, but I was just really let down, as our coffee experience before was close to perfect. 👌🏽Perhaps just a bad day- as we all have those from time to time!! Willing to give Cafe Organic another whirl before we leave Seminyak, as they really do deserve it! Definitely a go to spot for a great coffee & wedge of scrummy cake.

-Wholesome & inspiring flavours -
Welcome to @watercressbali the home of mouthwatering 'do it yourself' salads where you can choose a little bit of what you fancy. Wholesome, hand crafted, delicious goodies grace the menu. With a huge selection of Australian cafe style cuisine, this rustic & tropical place has a fun and relaxed feel.
We decided to try the 'Chicken cashew & avocado salad' which was fresh, and light. Sprinkled with toasted sesame seeds and chunky cashews. Opting to try the salad bar, I was pleasantly surprised with the portion size! The mushroom quiche was by far the star of the plate, quickly followed by the pumpkin tabbouleh, and charred broccoli. Let's not forget the chunky hummus and crunchy garlic green beans. Little gems in their own way. Watercress definitely sits within the moderate- high price bracket, & being around the tempting salad bar it's definitely hard to control yourself from loading up your plate!
RESTAURANT AESTHETIC- 7/10
Life begins after c o f f e e. Reflecting on our journey so far over a classic long black, & fruity red velvet latte at one of our favourites @livingstonebakery. Resisting temptation to try their entire cabinet of delicious cakes & pastries!! Hope you have all have a b e a u t i f u l day 🍃Keep your face toward the sun, & the shadows will fall behind you 🌞
