The Glass House is that quaint building on Jalan Tamblingan you may have seen with the white plantation shutters at the front and the carosel animals in the garden. It is renowned for its fabulous cappuccino , espresso and all types of coffee and home made cakes. Full breakfast for $10 includes an array of house baked pastries, muffins and breads. Cooked items include full offering of American and Australian breakfasts. A great place to have a fresh salad or baguette for lunch and the tastiest homemade hamburgers in Bali. Dinners can often offer a degustation tasting plate of the freshest available produce in Bali at the time as well as many popular seafood and other dishes including vegetarian and the popular local Indonesian favorites. Funky tunes play, whilst you watch the world go by. Free wi-fi for doing business or just catching up on emails. Friendly staff, fresh organic ingredients, vegetables washed in bottled water for extra safety. Frosty juices, ice cold smoothies and milkshakes are a winner here. Fine quality Australian, Californian and Indonesian wine are available by the glass and the bottle at very competitive prices. You may also bring your own if you wish. The famous fresh Kelapa Muda , (young coconut) is available here for enormous health benefits.The Glass House is a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the friendly atmosphere and delicious food. A place where you actually get what you ordered!! Very trendy hang out.

My wife and I found this gem on our 6th night in Bali. The food was very delicious and the staff was very friendly and attentive. I can personally recommend the linguine and their cocktails. We will definitely try and come back the next time we are in Sanur.

Was pleased to find a restaurant with air con, although there is an outside seating area too. Small restaurant but staff were very friendly and the service was great. We had the steak which was good, the green curry, not the best but ok, the beef pie, too dry with no gravy inside and the spag bol, enjoyable. Unfortunately the... More

We had the luxury of staying in Kejora villas which are directly behind The Glasshouse. It opens onto the street so in the mornings we could watch the Bali bustle as we set to work to eat a hearty breakfast. Manager Liz made sure that everything was perfect and she was backed by impeccable staff. Chef Phil could do anything!... More

Tried out this gem for breakfast sometime in March and so glad that we did. The glass house does the simple things well, great little breakfast menu, Excellent coffee (arguably the best in sanur), excellent service and great decor. Will definitely visit again when we get the chance.

As guests at the Kejora Suits, that's where we had breakfast every morning for 7 days, but the front is also open for regular customers. As coffee lovers, we enjoyed a perfect cappuccino every morning with an always delicious breakfast, the Benedict Bagel being our favourite. The atmosphere and décor are also very nice. Definitely would recommend.

Pointed out by some friends the Glass House is a must do for breakfast. A small, cosy and well styled restaurant offers fantastic coffee and cool drinks and all the breakfast favourites. The staff were friendly, the service quick and the food tasty and fresh.
