What We Do For Fun
Always fresh, plentiful and abundant goodness for all.
Watercress Rustic Breakfast
All day, every day we serve up our delicious rustic breakfast. It's full of color, flavour and goodness. Inspired by our hometown, Byron Bay, which shares so much with Bali -good times, family, sun, sea and surf. We believe it's never the wrong time for two perfectly poached eggs over crunchy chat potatoes, rosemary butter mushrooms and peppery rocket thrown together with goats cheese and balsamic reduction or perhaps free-range poached eggs over crispy sweet corn fritters, chunky avocado salsa, chili jam, sour cream and grilled bacon. Add to that, we have new items on the breakfast menu you'll love.
Seriously, it's that good.
Revolver Coffee Buzz
To say we take our coffee seriously would be an understatement. Our latte glasses were hand carried from Australia because we want it perfect and right. We work closely with acclaimed barista & coffee guru, Katie Allen from Revolver. Our house blend is 100% Arabica from Colombia, Guatemala and Papua. Fresh milk comes from expat Australian cows living in Java (yes they have visas). Most importantly, we always pour a double ristretto.... a single shot of coffee passing through a double hit of coffee grind. That means you get pure golden crema goodness which makes for the best coffee - full of oils, aroma, richness and taste that a single shot simply won't give you.
All this coffee snobbery is pulled through our gorgeous retro Marzocco at the hands of our expert baristas. Obsessed... well, only a little.
We welcome you to linger over a perfect cup or swing by for a quick coffee-to-go.
Home Made Cakes
Every morning while the roosters are still sleeping, our French baker wakes up at 4am and rolls out of bed. He does it for one reason only -- his mad passion for baking the best croissants this side of Paris. They're crisp and flaky on the outside light and buttery on the inside. Described as transcendental and that’s just the start. Moist carrot cake, creamy Oreo Cheesecake, rich Chocolate Ganache with Organic Vanilla Ice Cream, Salted Caramel Slices, freshly baked cookies and more.
All divine and available every day at Watercress. Oh yeah.
The Famous Lunch Showcase
It's what got people talking about Watercress in the beginning. A homage to the "warung", a smorgasbord of organic color, crisp abundant salads, crèpes, quiches, vegetable lasagnas, fresh fish. All things good and yummy with flavors from around the world. We haven’t messed with it, it's perfect just as it is, but be quick, we run out pretty fast. Available while they last.
Àla Carte Lunch
As if the showcase wasn't enough, we have an awesome àla carte menu with fresh, healthy and super tasty options such as plush and abundant salads, open sandwiches and big burgers vegetarians and meat lovers will adore.
Try our wickedly good Mahi Mahi Burger with crispy capers and sweet marinated peppers, or maybe a big salad bowl full of organic mixed greens roasted pumpkin and beetroot, pesto, couscous, goats cheese and more. So many choices, so little time.
Get ready for a serious appetite.

The Watercress Group
EAT FRESH LIVE WELL
This is the mantra we go by and practice every day.
From the creative minds of The Good Food Brotherhood, say hello to wholesome abundance and vivacious flavors.
It started with two childhood friends from Byron Bay, Australia --
Pablo Fourcard and Jordie Strybos, sharing values and ideas on life and food.
Dreaming of bringing Australian-style cafes where ingredients are chosen with utmost care and everything in the kitchen made with a lot of love.
One of the pioneers in the healthy cafe culture in Bali, Watercress is known for its international showcase menu where various dishes occupy the personalized plates of guests. Collaborating with homegrown top brands such as Revolver Coffee, Breakfast in Bali and Happy Kombucha, they promote community and originality.
They support local in their much-loved deli promoting superfoods and Bali-sourced products of coconut oil, homemade nut butters and jams alongside fair-trade travel guide books and eco-friendly wares such as bamboo straws and wooden chopping boards.
Simple, rustic and cozy interior design is supported with communal seating and open dialogue between guests and staff. Stylish elements and diversely interesting menus tell just part of the much larger story. Innovative and conscious sourcing and importing practices embody a thoughtful trade ethos. Above all, Watercress speaks to a wider sense of progression in the Bali cafe scene.
