Watercress Cafe, UBUD

Watercress UBUDIMG_7481

Watercress Ubud opens for breakfast at 7:30 am, lunch starting 12 Noon and dinner at 5pm The cute two story Cafe is  located in close proximity to the Sacred Monkey Forest Sanctuary.  It’s a short walk down the road and perfect place to stop for some thirst quenching teas or fresh coconuts after visiting the hungry monkeys.   My friends and I kept finding ourselves back at Watercress over the three days we were in Ubud.

They have healthy sandwiches, salads, scrumptious entrees and desserts and amazing chilled juices, teas and Happy Kombucha! I’m absolutely in love with the Acai Bowl. They have one of the best I have tasted so far!  It’s topped with fresh fruits, coconut flakes and chewy Goji berries but the best ingredients are hidden inside the Acai mixture – crispy Quinoa and Bee Pollen.  Another favorite of mine was the Coconut Chia Seed Cream Pudding and Southern Peach Iced Tea with Homemade Lemon Lime Sorbet! My mouth’s watering as I’m writing this.

The dinner options were also great but to be honest, we came here each day for the Acai Bowl, Iced Teas, fresh whole coconuts and Chia Seed Pudding.  We just couldn’t stop thinking about Watercress, especially when we were exploring Bali under the hot sun.  The service was great and each day the servers would welcome us back with a huge smiles.  It’s hard to believe this particular Watercress Cafe opened only weeks before we arrived!  We will be sure to visit one or two of the Watercress Cafe locations in Bali again and suggest you run over there to see what all the buzz is about!

Nalu Bowls and Shelter Cafe Seminyak

Nalu Bowls

Nalu Bowls is my favorite place to visit in Seminyak, Bali for delicious fruit bowls. There are two other locations in Bali – Single Fin Restaurant & Bar in Uluwatu and Echo Beach Canggu which just opened a few weeks ago.  This is great news for Nalu Bowl lovers, with three locations spread across South Bali it makes it easier to get your hands on these chilled, yummy, healthy treats.  They have Acai, Pitaya, a green superfood, protein peanut butter, Pina Colada and tart sorbet-like bowls covered with fresh sliced tropical fruits and berries. I’m an Acai lover so always order the Maverick but also tried the superfood Teahupoo and Pina Colado Pipeline bowls.

The staff at both Nalu Bowls and Shelter Cafe are all quick, attentive, friendly, and helpful.  The management at both establishments have done a fabulous job training the staff and creating a fabulous menu.  I’ve already referred and brought some of our friends to enjoy my favorite spot in Seminyak.  I’ll be back soon!
