Canguu is a vibrant part of Bali which is full of lovely cafes, restaurants and bars that are super family friendly. Whether it’s a light breakfast, a relaxing lunch or dinner full of great food and laughter, Canggu has it all. Here are some of our favorite family friendly restaurants in Canggu. Grab the kids and eat!
This is a lovely little place for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The coconut crumpets for breakfast are a must, with a warming flat white. The juices are good too and will cleanse you from the night before. We absolutely love the polenta pancakes with bacon, spring onion, sour cream, maple syrup, and roasted pumpkin, tummies big and small will enjoy this.
Come here if you want something a little more high end. We like the chicken, fish and seasonal vegetables, all infused with Indonesian spices and herbs. The restaurant has only just opened after a successful launch in Jakarta, so come early, beat the crowds and enjoy some fine dining from a californian chef who now calls Bali home.

Cheesy fries, we think so, and these guys do them well. Perfect for little ones this yummy dish will keep them quiet for a few minutes at least. Their burrito is packed with fresh veggies, herbs and spices, great for hungry parents. There’s fresh juices, delicious coffees and so much more to fill you up for the day. Come for dessert and try their signature banana chocolate waffle - yummy!

The Joglo, is a cool place that has a cafe, playground, market and Pilates studio. Come for breakfast or lunch. The kids can burn off some energy in their playground and maybe take part in a Pilates class before. You can dine in or takeaway and they have a fab Sunday brunch which is great to do with friends. Food is Mediterranean inspired and they also serve traditional Indonesian cuisine.There’s fresh ice cream for the kids and a kids corner for them to play in, as you eat in peace.
