Exploring vegan and plant-based food on Bali?

Milu by Nook is a Canggu hotspot that has got everyone talking.

The setting

Set in the Indonesian rice fields, with plants and nature surrounding you, it’ll take your breath away. Each corner you turn gets prettier than the last. It’s safe to say, design and decor is a 10/10.

When a secret garden meets cafe, you’ve got yourself Milu By Nook. This spot is arguably one of the most stunning Glowcations in all of Bali.


The little things

They have thought about every single inch of the cafe, from floor to ceiling. With long wooden tables overlooking the rice fields, plug sockets outside for those laptop days and backdrops to suit every photo need!

They even have a shop at the front of their store, selling all their iconic featured products, form lamp shades to trinkets and woven baskets… just so you can recreate this look at home!

The green juice test

I switched the green juice for their ‘Nook Tropical Green’ smoothie which was a delicious blend of spinach, pineapple, mango, banana and coconut. It wasn’t overly sweet and was the perfect fresh drink to enjoy on a classic hot Bali day!


What I ate

I started off with their Ocean Reef Blue Spirulina smoothie bowl. This bowl was presented so beautifully, it was almost a shame to dive in. Blue spirulina may not sound particularly delicious, but they blended it with banana and yoghurt, to give it an amazing creamy texture and sweetness! The toppings were every superfood imaginable, giving it the perfect texture and crunch.

I then tried their Orange Brioche french toast which absolutely did not disappoint!

Think juicy berries, fresh orange slices, maple syrup, doughy brioche bread and a thick dollop of lemon curd on top… YUM!

What else

The staff were incredibly kind and friendly, all serving with such a big smile!

 


The bill

Nook’s Tropical Green Smoothie: 40k Rupiah
Ocean Reef Smoothie Bowl: 60k Rupiah
Orange Brioche French Toast: 50k Rupiah

What made me Glow

The shabby chic design, turning rustic white paint, old wooden tables and bamboo shoots into a tropical cafe oasis!
