Description: mbun Life Cafe is a "sustainable & organic"-concept cafe in natural setting, serving fresh, healthy, and exciting organic food and drinks in Canggu, Bali (just 10 minutes drive from the popular Seminyak area). Embun is situated in a natural environment, where a large eco-friendly bamboo building is built around "permaculture"-inspired organic kitchen farm and rice fields. Embun's menu consists of original organic recipes, where every sauce and dressings are home-made (try our Beet Bankuang & Rambutan Salad, and Beef Rendang Burritos on Whole-wheat Chapati). All juices and smoothies are made of 100% fruit juices and original mix juice recipes (try Blood Cleaning Energizer juice, and "Good Start" juice). We also serve great espresso coffee prepared by our baristas using freshly roasted Indonesian Aceh Gayo G1 coffee beans.

The building, the setting, the food, all is excellent. Especially the mixed juices. Kitchen is very innovative. Not far from Batu Belig beach. Since Canggu is becoming more and mote popular I am a little afraid that the unique charme of that place will soon be gone. So enjoy it while u can.

I hosted my pre-wedding welcome dinner for all of my out of town guests at Embun. I was a little nervous at first since I've never been to Embun and picked it initially due to the cafe's intimate setting and the great review on tripadvisor. However, Ichi was very helpful since the beginning, assisting me in planning the menu and... More

Very nice and relaxing vibe compare to most places in Canggu. The menu sports a huge variety, everything from pizza (they have their own brick oven) and other Italian dishes to American breakfast, to standard Indonesian fare. Everything was nice and no complaints. Easy spot for a family and they have parking as well.

When me and my husband arrived at 7.30 pm, he told us that whole tables has been reserved for 8.15pm. But, he offered us table if we still want to eat -... More

Lovely setting but the food was simply awful - no taste at all! I spoke to the cook and I got the impression that she hadnt been trained which is always a concern. I pass by everyday and never see customers.....

We liked the place, it was easy to find, great ambiance. Nasi goreng was a bit too spicy for us, but overall it was a nice experience having lunch here.

Very cute atmosphere, everything here is organic! A nice place to sit and relax if you're in the Canggu area. Try the beet salad, it is great. Beets are hard to get in SouthEast Asia it seems. Also, if you're a spice lover, try the pizza with chilies - it does not disappoint. Service was great. We were in a... More

Beautiful relaxed setting. We were only one of two tables of diners for lunch and service was great. Perfect walking distance from our villa and we'll go back. We had pizza and pasta and were happy with the taste, quality and price.
