Kayu Cafe reminds me of a beachside Starbucks, but that's really unfair if, like me, you don't like Starbucks. On my two week stay on the island, I had coffees and meals here quite regularly as it offers pretty much everything you could want. Coffee fans will be pleased to find a wide variety of favourite coffees, including lattes, flat... More

On the main strip of Gili T there aren't many appealing bars of cafe's. Which is why you could easily pass by Kayu Cafe, just in the midst of a couple of cool shops like "7 shores". But if you pay close attention you see the open air cafe with wood boards covering the walls and ceiling. While entering you... More

We ate here for breakfast twice and the food was great. The English muffins topped with spinach, feta, tomatoes and avocado are such good value and a generous portion. The omelette was quite small in comparison considering it was 20,000IDR more so I wouldn't order that agin. The frozen coffees were great as well. However, there were literally hundreds of... More

We went there for breakfast and it was delicious. I had a green smoothie, which was really yummy and the food from the other guests looked super delicious as well. Also the vegan gelato was super nice 👍🏼

After being away from England for a month I was craving a fry up and this place was great. Sausages,bacon,beans,hash browns,eggs and toast that put a smile on my face. They also do some amazing smoothies and shakes. Abit expensive for breakfast but you have to treat yourself every now and then

Kayu Cafe is a pure delight. Nestled in the middle of the main strip, it offers amazing healthy breakfasts (smoothie bowls) and lunches to satisfy all palates. Definitely an highlight of Gili T.

Saw that it was good for veggies so had to try. Food is quite expensive but only because it's fresh and home-made. Air conditioned and lovely layout. Big menu with too many lovely things to try, really struggled not to order everything. After a lot of beach food it was perfect to put something healthy into my body, smoothies are... More

They have a wide variety of food! Also really good for vegans and vegetarians. We had a really good Tomato/Bell Peper soup and falafal sandwhich, which were both really good! The only thing is that they ran out of quite a lot (teas, bread options). Recommend it for sure!
