We came here because we like the idea of supporting a foundation's cafe...the menu has heaps of options and we chose the chicken souvlaki and the falafel wrap. Sadly, the food was very mediocre.

We visited here for a lunch during our stay in Canggu. I ate the veggie samosa and gado gado and they were both delicious and good proportions.
The staff were super friendly and the restaurant has an amazing vibe!

After nearly 5 weeks Lovina and walking past this cafe SO many times, I went in today and instantly loved the atmosphere! We then had FABULOUS coffee and yummy apple pie and black forest cake!
Such a great place in supporting those less fortunate ☺️
