Coffee is probably best you can find on the island. Not so sure about the food. Pricy but I would come back again.

Only has a banana smoothie here but weirdly quiet amongst the hustle and bustle. Looking at menu, looked delicious, raw and healthy.

If you need a break from banana pancakes and rice this cafe provides affordable good quality raw food. Coffee is great, they have soy milk and lots of healthy breakfast options

We ate breakfast here all 3 days we stayed on Gili T. After travelling SE Asia for 5 weeks we were gagging for something healthy which wasn't rice or noodles. We had the breakfast pan which was so delicious and filling. The following day I had the breakfast burrito which I still can't stop thinking about!! I went back the... More

Have eaten here several times on my 3 trips to Gili T. Large variety of deliciously healthy eats. All very tasty. I love to grab a table facing the water. Good wifi throughout Kayu but it's hard for me to concentrate because I end of watching the activity on the beach....If ya wanna work grab a table behind these water... More

Quaint cafe amidst all the bars on main Gili Trawangan strip. + Good coffee, nice air-conditioning area, nice choices of smoothie, clean toilets, good view of the street - flies inside the air-cond area, service could be slow if overwhelmed by customers, prices are slightly on the moderate higher side Has plenty of foreign tourists fans in the place. Probably... More

We actually went in because we craved cake. But ended up ordering from the menu. We chose english muffins with poached eggs and avocado. Mmmm mm. And, a chicken and onion panini. Oh, and a Toblerone milkshake and oreo milkshake. Wow! We were so full we couldnt fit any cake in :(

I can recommend the Kayu Café for having breakfast or a juice with a nice view. I was really hungry and ordered Spaghetti with Prawns (75000) and for this price it was too small. I was still hungry after the meal :( the coffee was really good (with coconut milk)

Kayu Cafe reminds me of a beachside Starbucks, but that's really unfair if, like me, you don't like Starbucks. On my two week stay on the island, I had coffees and meals here quite regularly as it offers pretty much everything you could want. Coffee fans will be pleased to find a wide variety of favourite coffees, including lattes, flat... More
