The Best Cheap Places To Eat In Canggu
I love a good deal! These cheap eats in Canggu are some of my favorite places to fill up without draining my bank account.
Warung Smile Canggu is a local Indonesian cafe just up the road from Echo Beach. This comfortable Canggu cafe has outdoor seating and friendly staff. Despite being very close to the beach, the menu is super affordable and there is a large vegetarian selection as well.
I ate here on one of my first days in Canggu and the Veggie Nasi Goering was exactly what I needed. One of the best Warungs Canggu has to offer!
Surfside Canggu Cafe
This spot is also very close to Echo Beach and has an amazing outdoor ambiance. The Surfside Canggu Cafe is a great place for a morning power bowl before you take a surf lesson. It’s also a comfy spot to get some work done thanks to the speedy WiFi.
The prices here are inexpensive and the quality and portions are great. Since this Canggu cafe was right next to my hostel, Surfside Cafe Canggu was one of my go-to Bali breakfast places. My stomach and my wallet didn’t mind one bit.
On my first trip to Canggu, I stayed a bit farther from the beach near this awesome Waroeng. I must have eaten here ten times in eight days because the local food and pizzas were so affordable.
Ons Waroeng is one of the best cheap restaurants Canggu has to offer. If you want a cheap smoothie bowl in Canggu, this is the place to get it. But really you can’t go wrong with any of their menu items.
They also have one of the best deals on pizza in Canggu I’ve seen. They have a pizza special every night from 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm, making this a great place to get your pizza fix! Eat on the huge second-story balcony where you can enjoy a tropical breeze with your meal.
Warung Ambara is the perfect hybrid of local warung and trendy brunch cafe. This authentic restaurant in Canggu, Bali has outdoor seating overlooking the rice paddy and overall charming vibes.
With local and western breakfast options for cheap prices, this place will always be one of my favorite cafes in Canggu Bali
Rise and Shine Cafe
Rise and Shine Canggu is a colorful Canggu brunch spot. It’s a little off the beaten path but well worth the visit. The Rise and Shine Canggu menu has some of the most affordable “fancy” coffees in town and fresh brunch options for all kinds of eaters.
Make sure to take a picture with the mural on the wall and drink as many budget-friendly cappuccinos you can get your hands on.
Best Canggu Bali Restaurants on a Mid-range Budget
It’s no secret that Canggu is home to some of the best restaurants in Bali. Check out these delicious places to eat in Canggu on a mid-range budget.
I Am Vegan Babe Cafe
I am Vegan Babe Canggu is a must-try for vegan travelers! Scratch that. This Canggu Brunch Cafe is a must-try for ALL travelers!
This vegan cafe in Canggu is tasty and aesthetically wonderful – perfect for plant-based travelers and those who want to try something a little different.
I tried the vegan tofu scramble and this blue smoothie masterpiece pictured below. Both were exceptionally delicious and I loved trying them while I sat on the patio and looked out over the rice fields. A great place to spend the day and try some healthy vegan food in Canggu Bali!
Love and Coconuts
Love and Coconuts is the perfect place to grab a smoothie bowl or breakfast dish from a restaurant run by kind and passionate people.
Perfect for health nuts and digital nomads alike (thanks to the amazing WiFi), you’ll probably want to hang out at Love and Coconuts all day! Stop in and ask about their raw foods cooking classes and live music events too!
Milk and Madu Cafe Canggu
I came here for the smoothie bowls but I stayed for the atmosphere. Milk and Madu Canggu has an outdoor garden for you to enjoy your brunch, perfectly photogenic tropical smoothie bowls, and an endless supply of fancy coffees.
If you’re craving pizza in Canggu, they also have a two for one pizza special on Tuesday nights!
As you walk up to it, Shady Shack Canggu just looks cool. This bungalow cafe is hidden in a garden of greenery overlooking a rice paddy.
On the Shady Shack Cafe menu, you’ll find all-day breakfast, enormous quinoa bowls, delicious iced coffee with coconut milk, and too many delicious smoothie bowls to count. It’s no wonder this place is known for being an Instagram-worthy food spot and one of the best breakfast in Canggu destinations!
Taco Casa is a must-visit restaurant in Canggu for Mexican-food-enthusiasts. The Taco Casa Bali menu is simple and fresh, making it easy for someone like me who has major food-ordering anxiety.
My favorite thing to eat here is the wet veggie burrito, a stuffed vegetarian burrito covered in enchilada red sauce and cheese. If you’re looking for Mexican food, Canggu style, look no further!
Canteen Cafe Canggu
If you love surfing, you’ll love the decor of Canteen Cafe Canggu. With Canggu breakfast deals including coffee for 50K, tasty lunchtime sandwiches and burgers, and all the local favorites too, everyone will find something they love.
They’re only open from 7:00 am – 5:00 pm so make sure to swing by Canteen any time except for dinner time. My favorite lunch pick? The Honky Tonk Hashbrowns with Avocado.
Lola’s Mexican Cantina Canggu
Lola’s cantina Canggu is an awesome Mexican option when you need a break from delicious Indonesian fare. Located right on the short cut, Lola’s Mexican Restaurant Canggu has a cool atmosphere, fun music, and some of the best Mexican food in Bali.
They also offer a tempting Taco Tuesday special every Tuesday night. On Tuesdays, every cocktail you order comes with a free taco!
Lola’s Canggu Cantina also does Mexican breakfast and brunch options like this glamorous chia pudding with mango puree.
If you want a memorable breakfast in Canggu Bali, this is the place to get it! Betelnut Cafe Canggu is right in downtown by Deus ex Machina and Luigi’s. It has a delightful upstairs patio with views for days.
The Betelnut Cafe has good vibes and low-priced combination specials, making this easy for the budget. My go-to Canggu breakfast? The Mexican burrito with the berry ripe smoothie. Heaven.
The Mocca Cafe Canggu
The Mocca Cafe Canggu is probably the most photogenic Canggu breakfast cafe on this list and home to some absolutely divine looking dishes. The Mocca is an awesome place to grab breakfast in Canggu or get some work done.
I still dream about the toast with hummus and avocado I tried here. They plate the food like artwork and the restaurant itself looks like it could have its own HGTV show.
Best Dinner In Canggu Bali
These Canggu dinner restaurants are perfect for a splurge night! Okay, I say “splurge night,” but the prices here are still WAY more affordable than most places I’d eat back home.
I’m writing this from the point of view of someone who travels on a budget and none of these places are extremely expensive by American standards. For the sake of this article, remember that spending $10-$15 USD on one meal would be on the higher end for most Canggu Bali Restaurants.
Luigi’s Hot Pizza
When in Canggu, you have to eat pizza at Luigi’s Canggu at least once. Luigi hot pizza Canggu is expensive but WORTH IT.
The first time I went, I moaned and groaned because the prices were more expensive than pizza at other places. But then oh my goodness the plain cheese pizza I got was so much better than anywhere else.
There are great places to eat pizza in Bali but this is the best, for sure. Luigis also has music and lively parties in the huge outdoor space most nights, so going here is an event in itself.
Santorini Greek Restaurant
This little restaurant near Echo Beach surprised me. I booked a room in the hostel above this restaurant and I ate here because it was the first place I found when I arrived late at night.
While the main dishes were pricy, the food was fresh, high quality, and tasted just like my favorite Greek spot back home.
If you stop by for breakfast, they have budget-friendly danishes and pastries with delightful things like feta cheese and spinach inside.
B52 Burger Canggu
Could this be the best burger in Canggu? The best burger in Bali even? I don’t eat red meat so I’m hearing this review from a friend, who, upon trying the Canggu B52 burger said: “This is the best burger I’ve had in my entire life… and I’ve had thousands of burgers.”
They have veggie-friendly options here too, which were lovely, but if you’re a burger fan you definitely want to give this spot a try.
With one of the best food scenes in the world, you definitely won’t go hungry in Canggu, Bali! Have you been to Canggu? What was your favorite place to eat?
