Slick back your man bun, toss your scarf over your shoulder, kickstart your custom cafe racer and pull up on Canggu’s hippest new hotspot, The Common Bali. Batu Bolong has been buzzing just a little louder since the opening of the Good Food Brotherhoods newest offering. While the GFB boys are better known for their elevated cafe eats, the newest addition to their portfolio is a departure from the Milk & Madu or Watercress norm. A natural evolution of their brand, crossing over the shortcut has meant dedicating a menu to meet the demands of the Batu Bolong common folk. For the everybody’s. The hungry hoi polloi.
Six years dominating the food & bevvie scene in Canggu means that the Good Food brothers know exactly what you want, and are able to execute a fresh concept at lightning speed. This ain’t their first rodeo. We blinked, and the old Petit Prince space was transformed into a hip new timber-clad coffee spot, the bench seating filling faster than you could flag down a GO-JEK and scream “take me to Batu Bolong”.
Within a menu that doesn’t discriminate, you’ll find gluten-free bread, vegan brekkie burritos, açai bowls, granolas, smashed avos and house made coconut feta.. but then also crispy spicy chicken burgers, cheesey toasties, stacked brekkie burgers and buttery croissants. It’s well balanced, it’s welcoming, it’s designed for the common folk and yet it’s anything but basic.
It’s the honest to goodness, good-damn-food that Canggu has come to expect from the Good Food Brotherhood, with lashings of vegan, gluten-free, and superfood healthy.. because, hipster. If you haven’t already, walk your scuffed leather boots straight into Canggu’s newest hyped hangout.
