Cafes of Legian, Bali

My trip to Bali was fortuitously timed just after Nomadic Notes posted this café guide to Bali.

I am in love with this guy’s blog and I plan to use his café guides religiously on my trips around SE Asia.

I was based in Kuta, and nothing decent was nearby, so I walked about 1 hour to a couple of cafes in Legian.

The Caffeine Coffee Shop

This little gem is easy to miss, just off the busy main road lined with bars and restaurants. Their tiny entrance fools on into thinking that the café is little more than a bar counter and two booths, but once you step inside you are enter a gloriously huge garden, serene and secluded from the moped engines on the street outside. Wifi was pretty stable, but not fast. Drinks were excellent and cheap.
Perhaps the only downside to The Caffinee Coffee Shop is their tables. Most are too low to work from on a laptop, and their bar counter was a bit too high to be confortable. However, I would definitely return for the opportunity to escape the noise and pollution of Legian’s main roads.

Being a tourist favorite, their prices were double that of Caffeine’s.  Our latte came out so piping hot that we had to wait a half hour before drinking them least our lips be seared off. The seating downstairs is more conducive to socializing, so we parked ourselves in a lounge area upstairs. No air-conditioning, as in much of Bali, so it was sweltering.
