As the title says best breakfast/lunch on the island. Everything freshly made with great ingredients and well put together. Incredibly well priced. I had the veggie breakfast pan which is delicious and my partner had the pancakes which were again awesome. Second trip to Gili and keep going back here, great coffee too.

We visited this cafe several times, trying to work our way through the menu. Unfortunately our trip ended before we did but we were never disappointed. All the food is fresh and tasty. Some great vegetarian options and possibly the best coffee on Gili T

Great full English and smoothie bowl. Also lovely and clean, to an extent which makes it stand out from other gili restaurants. Worth a breakfast visit

We came here to chill out while enjoying the beach. The place is small but comfy. All the furnitures made from wood, as the name Kayu means Wood. We ordered 2 kind of smoothies, mix berries and manggo smoothies, both are below our expectation for this place reputation. Even the juice sellers near the ticket office sell better drinks. Our...

The best coffee we had on the island. Staff are friendly and drinks always come quickly and are always correct. We had brunch here once and the food was reasonably priced and delicious. Try the smoothie bowls they do. Seating on the beach front and upstairs!
