Totally Flavourless

I had a very bad experience. Ordered a rice bowl wih tempeh and veggies and mashed potato. They just put it together dry and unflavoured. One of the worst vegan food experiences I have had.

Pros: Nothing

Cons: Taste

Yummy as so much choice

Really love it here. Small ish place, extensive menu! You can kinda build your own style, or chose pre made items. I had waffles with plant protein powder, coconut yoghurt n berries. Very yummy.
Coffee was ok
The 3 others I were with (1 other vegan and 2 omnis) liked their food also

Big portion fitness food

Finally a Balinese restaurant with an adequate portion size. I had the Sweet Potato Salad with additional Hemp Bread and the Açai Motion Smoothie. It was great! The smoothie tasted really good and both were large portions. A good variety of (unfortunately also non-vegan) fitness food, that can also be self-assembled. They also do not use too much oil/salt.
Will definitely come again!
Has the potential to be best healthy vegan spot, but serves meat, dairy, eggs, ...

Pros: Big portion size, Good ingredients, also self-assembled meals, Vegan indicator (V)

Cons: Not completely vegan :(, Little expensive

okay not impressed

i got avocado on toast with fried tempeh, but the tempeh came completely unseasoned and unflavoured not being marinated at all which might be okay for some but for me it was inedible so asked it to be taken off my bill, but the avocado was good! had a nice drink though but yh quite expensive for not very flavourful ‘clean’ food

Pros: vegan options

Cons: overpriced , unseasoned/flavourless

There are better options

The food tasted good, it was fresh and filling and you get water for free. But the staff was inattentive, slow and not friendly. The place is on a busy road and it was full of good looking fitness people. You find better places to eat vegan food in Canggu.

I guess it was good regarding the fact they‘re making their food as clean as possible. Won‘t choose it again though

very nice place

Food was delicious and very friendly staff. Their black bean burger was very tasty. Gf bread options are available. Make sure to try out their homemade vanilla granola. I bought one bag, and finished it within 2 days, so good! Many vegan options to choose from; it always takes me a long time to choose. The kombucha they sell is also very refreshing and my favorite one so far.

Pros: staff, so many vegan options!

They have really nice food! You can always choose the vegan option if you want. You‘ll get also almond milk if you want.

My partner and I have been to and ordered in from Motion Cafe very frequently since we moved to Canggu five months ago. The staff is friendly and service is fairly quick. The menu on the Go-Jek app (food delivery) is abbreviated from ordering in the cafe, so my go-to's include organic tempeh and the miracle soup. When ordering in the cafe, I love the vegan kick (lentil patty, shredded beetroot and carrot, hummus, avocado, and tomato relish) and the vegan salad. We both highly recommend this restaurant.

The coffee is also delicious - they use a blend of Balinese and Brazilian coffee beans and you can choose between regular milk, skim milk (no charge); or almond, cashew, or coconut milk ($1.20 CAD charge).

good food

Vegan dishes are ok but very standard. No local influence, very western. I'm more into local food so this wouldn't be something I'd recommend.

Pros: nice to go to with meateaters, good quality, vegan cake

Cons: very westernized, not a local business

Nice cafe with nice menu

Prices seemed expensive, but then I noticed that the prices are the same in similar places in Ubud and Gilis too.

The restaurant seemed popular and I liked the atmosphere in the cafe and Canggu. Seems like a good travel destination in Bali for a vegan.

I had a smoothie bowl and latte, both were good. I would come here regularly if I lived in Canggu.

This restaurant is very veggie friendly and has many amazing vegan options and they are marked clearly on the menu. They also have at least one vegan sweet thing. The portions are good and dishes taste pretty fantastic.
