THE BEST RESTAURANTS IN CANGGU
1) Crate Cafe
Crate is a popular cafe in Canggu that serves the best salads and smoothies. Crate Cafe is open for breakfast and lunch and is always busy, with a lively ambiance. Unfortunately, you cannot reserve a table, and you must wait until someone finishes dining before you can get a table, so there may be a wait. But, once seated, it’s worth it because it has a large salad and wrap menu with many healthy alternatives for individuals trying to lose weight.
Crate was one of Canggu’s earliest mega-popular eateries and has since blossomed into a must-see tourist destination for lunch. The majority of diners here come fresh from the beach in boardshorts or bikinis, so be prepared to see a lot of stunning bodies. A DJ spins tunes, adding to the hip and relaxed holiday feel while you eat under the tin shed roof. Crate should be the first place you go for lunch in Canggu for the pure experience.

BAKED is one of those eateries, or should I say bakeries, where lines form all day. Why?
