Constantly evolving for nine successful years, this jungle vibe cafe is famous for being one of the best breakfast and lunch spots on the island. Located off a small side street in Bali’s busiest district in Seminyak, guests are transported to a treehouse sanctuary. Based on the second floor, and made in the simple style of a ‘Joglo’ with exotic plants, recycled timber and wood, Shelter Cafe represents Bali’s soul. Referring to its name, Shelter, welcomes every guest with warmth. Whether it’s families, nomads or tourists looking for a simple escape, this venue is authentic when it comes to celebrating the Bali lifestyle.
The secret to Shelter Cafe’s success is the process of evolution. Shelter Group’s core principle is to create an unforgettable guest experience, this takes constant refinement, updates, feedback and development to stay relevant. Many food establishments shy away from this type of change, where else Shelter Cafe embraces it, undergoing a number of evolutions over time. The cafe itself has recently gone through a revamp, opening a shop below which adds to the experience of going on an adventure as the cafe is secretly located upstairs. The new store adds another dynamic to the cafe for shoppers to explore, adding to the magic happening upstairs.
Another thing that has recently changed is the branding. Most of us know that Shelter Pererenan, opened in late 2021, is one of Bali’s top dining experiences on the island. With its big sister company fully booked up on most evenings, Shelter Cafe has matured with the group’s expansion. Its Middle Eastern and Mediterranean contemporary menu has been further developed, finding new ways to explore our taste sensations. A simple dish on the menu like smashed avocado will blow your mind. Executive Chef Stephen Moore, experiments with creativity and flavours to bring a basic dish to life. Favourites on the menu are the Turkish Egg, Breakfast Roll and Ricotta Pancakes.
With tourism at peak, Shelter Cafe sees foot traffic of 500 people per day. Whatever time it is, tables are occupied by smiling faces, creating a lovely atmosphere. Relax to the reggae/ summer soundtrack, feel the breeze, and eat food that makes you feel delicious. You will always feel good at Shelter Cafe.
