About Us

Australian Monique Robson, spent 13 years immersed in the exotic and sophisticated environment of Dubai before moving to Bali where her obsession of iconic design elements of Morocco and healthy Middle Eastern inspired food was poured into  the opening Cous Cous cafe.

Mosaic tiled walls and floors, wooden latticework, open-air courtyards, rich fabrics and distinctive ceilings can be seen throughout the café which offers a Moroccan inspired menu of vegetarian dishes, super healthy libations, sweet treats and freshly roasted organic coffee.
