We went to Golden Valley Waterfall and what a treat to stumble upon the Eco Cafe. A small unassuming "shack" overlooking the falls offered the best lunch and freshest juice we had of our trip! We had the fried rice and Lak Lak dessert with Bali chocolate along with Luwak coffee and fresh strawberry juice. The prices were phenomenal and... More

Because of the many signs we decided to go to the ecocafe. When we arrived the cafe was closed. So we took some pictures from the waterfall and on our way back up to the cafe it was open and we were really happy. We had a luwak coffe because the price was fair (30.000) and not so expensive like... More

Bit hard to find as there's another cafe called "Eco-friendly", but that's not Eco cafe, so make sure you're at the right place. Had lunch cooked by the students and so it took them a bit longer to sort everything out but we had a pleasant lunch with a beautiful view over the mountains. Finished it with some luwat coffee,...

Ordered the Kopi Luak Robusta coffee and I have to admit it was the best cup of coffee I have had in 40 years of drinking coffee. Did not anticipate coffee beans from the civet cat and the brewing process would make that much difference. l was wrong. Also tried the Atomic Tea which featured cloves, cinnamon stick, lemongrass, ginger... More

Nice place. The manager kept us informed about the Luwak project and how they rescue, nurture and release Luwaks back into nature, lovely concept. The food was very good, freshly prepared and healthy. It is a quiet place and perfect after a day of hiking.

Dear Rebecca C...... One of our missions is to reveal the phenomena of how civet coffee are massively produced through caged, mistreated and tortured animals. If no one cares the animals will extinct very soon. The quality of the coffee produced that way is also recognized as much more inferior compared to the natural proccess by wild/free range animals. We... More

More out of a coincidence we found the Ecocafe near beautiful Golden Valley Waterfall! The place is very beautiful, in the middle of nature and the food was delicious.

Amazing location next to the golden valley waterfall, well worth the hike. The family running the place is really kind and they serve good coffee and tea. Perfect place to buy the infamous Luwak coffee, as the family gathers the beans manually from the wild Luwaks instead of holding the animals in cages like most of the places I have... More

I heard this cafe 2 years ago, I really appreciate the concept and ofcourse the actions. Active students are involved here, this is very educational and beneficial.

Description
Munduk Eco Café "THE THATCH ROOFED-WARUNG and COFFEE SHOP in the Tutub Coffee Plantation and Civets Sanctuary is OPEN DAILY (9.30 AM - 5 PM)for lunch, afternoon tea or coffee or just trying our fresh fruits juice with various authentic Balinese "snacks". Since we are no longer located near the Golden Valley waterfall, we DO NOT "use" the name of Golden Valley Coffee Shop any more. Eco Café the Farmers Co-op is the fundamentally restored Golden Valley Coffee Shop!! We are 1 km away East from the feamous Munduk Waterfall, and 400 mtr away North of the Golden Valley waterfall. Now we are accessable by scooter, it takes only 10 minutes from Munduk waterfall.
