About Us

‘Close to everything yet far enough away.’
Originally owned and designed by Monique Robson, Café Cous Cous has been a constant on the Bali foodie scene since 2014, providing a rich balance of healthy, tasty, Morrocan-inspired vegetarian food and maintaining its success away from the hustle and bustle of the beach suburbs, tucked away in the residential and tranquil area of Umalas.
Fitness guru’s and long time Bali residents Yvette and Pete Manuel recently purchased the café and are dedicated to maintaining the amazing profile already set.
