The eclectic food culture of Bali is one of the main reasons I keep going back there. Ubud wins the first place in terms of the variety of healthy and affordable restaurants, while Seminyak comes second with a very good selection of breakfast places.
Nutritious, fresh, vegetable-rich and avocado-focused, these places rival (and sometimes look the same as) their counterparts in Europe and North America. They earn extra points, though, for their airy spaces, sunlight and cheap coconut water.
This Wu Top is from my all-time favorite store/cafe in Bali, Souq. Located in Seminyak, Souq prides itself on provinding ethically sourced materials and products for their shop and produce and ingredients for their vegetables. They have tons of gorgeous home goods and clothes inspired by the world. And, their cafe has amazing cake (I highly recommend the lemon coconut). For this look, I paired the top with a high-waisted black skirt and a head-scarf from Kookon Silks.
