After three weeks in Bali I was pretty tired of samey rice and noodle dishes. The cafe's Nasi Campur special (30k) was just the kick I needed. Then grab a pot of special Sultan tea and watch passers by in the cool, breezy shade.

Really nice place and good food. Perfect for a rest after a visit of the market near by or the sultan palace.

The atmosphere is really artsy and cozy with lots of greenery. Came for lunch and food was just average, but the fresh juice was great. Perfect place for a break, to write postcards or just hang out.

This home base cafe is very unique it's actually the owner's house, a bit messy but very unique and many hand made art pieces in the cafe/house. We like the mixed rice very much, it mix the chicken with fruit, look weird to me but it taste surprisingly good!

This small cafe with its super friendly owner is highly recommended. The owner Kompi is an artist who runs this little cafe with his family and this is what makes the difference. The moment you enter you feel welcomed and at home. The interior is very basic - but artsy which makes the difference. Kompi's freshly made fruit jices are... More

The owner (and his family) are all warm and nice, you'll fell like home once you get there. Yet, the Indonesian food not really tasty, maybe they put less seasoning on it. Also, if you're a big fan of... More

We had to search a bit to find the place. It's set back from the street on the far side of a marketplace that was empty that day, and of course Google Maps is useless when it's not on the street. When we found it, we were given a warm welcome by Kompi. It was our first meal of the... More
