Organic & fair trade delight
Quaint, small cafe adjoining homewares store; offering a small selection of drinks, coffee and tiny slices/balls. Friendly, smiley service and a free taste test given before going ahead with purchase. Stool-only seating (it isn’t big enough for cozy chairs) and fair trade coffee beans also for sale.

Fair Trade Store and Coffee Bar Supporting Balinese People.
Wanting to support local Balinese producers and farmers, we were very fortunate to come across BaliZen. Not only are the homewares gorgeous, they are produced in Bali under fair trade conditions. This means that more than 100 Balinese people and their families benefit directly. The produce used in the Coffee bar is also sourced from local farmers involved in a FairTrade initiative fully supported by the owners of BaliZen. The homewares have a very shabby chic/coastal vibe, and the clothing in very much on trend with style and colours. The fabrics are wonderfully sustainable cotton, rayon and tencel. Eco based dyes are also used which enhances the ethical nature of this brand. The staff are very friendly and willing to assist, and the prices are very reasonable. If you really want to support the Balinese people shop ethically at BaliZen. And for us Aussies, BaliZen Homewares and clothing is also available in Melbourne, Australia.

We had wandered into the shop (wonderful selection.. did basically all our late christmas shopping here...) and then saw that there was a juice and coffee place attached. After a long day of walking in Seminyak, we were in dire need of a pick-me-up. The girl working there was very friendly and offered us some taste-testers of the juice. I got the tumeric TLC, made me feel great and refreshed, and my friend got a cappucino, which she said was really good, and we could enjoy our drinks while we browsed the shop. The juices are cold-pressed (and can be made into smoothies as well), the coffee is local and organic, and the service is friendly--and they have paleo, vegan, gluten free snacks and chocolate! This hole-in-the-wall place was a great find. Will definitely suggest friends and family to come on their visits to Bali.
