buzz : Popular with fashionable expats and savvy tourists, this small terrace hidden behind a fading yellow and white awning on Jl Laksmana provides all day dining with flair and simplicity. Australian designer, Pete Zuitton, has combined a boutique and organic cafe serving wholesome comfort food.  Artisan breads and cakes are baked daily, and imported grains, nuts, and cheeses meld with locally grown vegetables for a creative menu. Breakfast is a major event and the set offers for A$10, including juice and coffee, are a good kickstart to a day of shopping or pool time.   The salad bar lunch is a vegetarian delight, served in a voluminous wooden bowl with sourdough bread.  Couscous, roast eggplant, feta, preserved lemon, pinenuts, roast pumpkin and tabbouleh are a welcome sight when you have had your fill of nasi goreng.   Get to know fellow diners as you sit on colourful stools around communal benches, or tap into the free wifi. Road noise can be disturbing and it gets warm under the verandah, but excellent coffee and the convivial atmosphere make it a high priority on my list.

  1. Hi Sally. Thanks for the great review. My name is Jonathan Russell. As well as Zucchini I have 2 other cafes Green Ginger Noodle House and The Island Pizza. Pete is my partner in Zucchini as a sideline to his three fashion stores, Zuttion x 2 and The Library. Please drop in and check out the other cafes next time you are in Bali and keep an eye out for Zucchini II, in the early planning stages now.
    Glad you enjoyed our food and coffee, you're welcome any time

  2. Thanks Jonathan. Had dinner at Green Ginger in December and loved it. Will definitely go back with my camera during the day. Looking forward to the opening of Zucchini II - any hints to the location? See you when the wind swings.
