When it comes to creating a positive social impact while traveling, it can feel like a bit of a minefield. In Bali, however, there are not one but two incredible social impact cafes that you can visit safely in the knowledge you’re doing good right.

The first is Give Cafe, the sister eatery of Canggu and Seminyak’s Kynd Cafe.

Located on Jalan Padang Linjong in Canggu, Give Cafe is a 100% not-for-profit venture. The cafe serves up a completely plant-based menu with delicious treats for all to enjoy.

The all-day menu includes classic Indonesian dishes like mie goreng and healthy Buddha bowls, and tropical island pancakes. The coffee served at Give Cafe is from local Expat Roasters, and the menu feature cocktails and refreshers too.

Give Cafe’s mission is simple. Every single purchase made at Give Cafe has a purpose.

They support three charities in Bali that support people, animals, and the planet. They are currently working with Bali Paws, who help street cats and dogs on the island.

Funds generated by Give Cafe are also sent to Soleman Indonesia, an incredible organization that helps people living with disabilities, mental health disorders, and chronic illnesses across Bali.

Finally, for the good of the planet, Give Cafe is currently supporting Sungai Watch, a local charity that is devoted to cleaning up Indonesia’s rivers and illegal landfill sites.

Give Cafe is a super laid-back eatery. The kind of place where you can grab a table and hang out for the majority of the day, grazing from the snack menu and sipping away on one too many coffees.

Since opening its doors in 2018, Give Cafe has raised over AUD 51,000 for charity, with more funds being generated each day.

Give Cafe’s sister enterprise is the Kynd Community, with cafes in Canggu and Seminyak. Both cafes are bright and airy, incredibly welcoming, and super homely.

Featuring Wes Anderson-style dusty pink decor, and colorful dishes, guests leave Kynd Cafe feeling nourished not only by the food.

What sets Inklusiv Warung apart from other venues in Canggu even further (and in the best of ways!) is that they also support the local queer scene.

Local Expat Roasters? The terms 'local' and 'expat' are contradictions. It is basically saying 'locally based foreign owned'. Are there no locally owned roasters in Bali?
