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.

“Very spicy food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

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.

“Delicious Beet Salad & Pizzas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

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 bit of a rush and they got everything made quickly and packed up in really cute scalloped white take-out boxes. They also served us each some limoncello, on the house.

If you go at night, bring bug spray. Staff was nice enough to light mosquito repellent but sometimes that's not enough.

Only negative thing I could say is that we couldn't stay longer... but we will be back for sure.

“Great lunch!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012 via mobile

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.
