Mannaka is a tiny Japanese style coffee shop in Bali with an uncanny resemblance to a birdhouse. Named after the Japanese word for “center,” it’s famous around town for its unique and exceptionally minimalist approach to cafe design. Their place is a meetup spot for you and your friends that uses the art of simplicity to create a bright and a comfortable space. (And their staff’s easy-going vibe is icing on the cake.) Everything has a purpose here, like this hanging tote bag, which serves as a “framed“ illustration of their shop. A block of wood becomes a place to rest your drink. Wooden benches face each other so people can interact more while also making way for customers to pass. There isn’t a single item in Mannaka’s stall that doesn’t serve some kind of purpose, and it says a lot about the amount of attention they pay to each and every detail in their little store.
