WATERCRESS CAFE Welcome to the idyllic haven of ‘Watercress Cafe’ situated on Jl Batu Belig, where creative minds meet and fashionable souls gather to delight on locally sourced organic produce. What’s makes this different from your ‘one every corner organic café in Bali’; Watercress is an exciting new project headed up by Pablo Fourcard & Jordie Strybos. The brains behind the business have descended the spiral staircase offering creativity and originality. The café draws from its local surroundings but doesn’t rely on them.

Dive into a multi colored world of elixirs and edible delights for breakfast, lunch & dinner!
