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.

“Easy Menu, Relaxing Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

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.

“Great Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

It’s located in front of a rice field, before Berawa Beach. This place is so cozy with bamboo style- great ambience.

Two thumbs up for the kindly manager. 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 - for 45 minutes. I agreed and ordered right away. About 10-15 minutes later, our food served.. and the taste was sooooo great. So does the dessert. It’s worth the price, I will definitely come back.

“Not recommended.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

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.....

“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.
