IT'S not just the eggs that are served sunny-up side up at Sisterfields in Bali.

From the moment you're greeted at the door, to the moment you leave, the happy, smiling, and all-obliging staff members make a visit to this uber cool eatery in trendy Seminyak a must!

Opened earlier this year, Sisterfields, has a sophisticated, but rustic vibe, with a black-and-white colour scheme, wooden tables with coloured wrought-iron chairs, large market umbrellas and a stunning vertical garden on the outside deck.

Indoors, air conditioning provides much-needed relief from Bali's tropical sun, while the front and back decks are great spots for relaxing.

Open for breakfast and lunch, Sisterfields is fast gaining a reputation as one of Bali's must-try cafes.

Popular with both ex-pats and tourists, it's the happy staff, high standard of service and super-delicious, healthy food that sets it apart from many other eateries in Bali.

Start your day with a fresh juice served in cute, milk bottle-shaped glasses.

Go for granny's remedy, the vitamin booster, detox, ginger ninja or my favourite - the Greenfields - a delicious and refreshing combination of spinach, green apple, cucumber, celery and mint.

There's also a range of coffees, teas, smoothies, granitas and of course whole young coconuts.

Breakfast at Sisterfields is a must!

The tropical fruit salad with coconut bavarica cream and coconut lime granita is delicious and light, while the smoked salmon sliders with scrambled eggs and salsa verde or the smashed avocado, semi-dried tomatoes, popped capers and feta with lime sea salt on wholegrain toast tempt diners looking for a more substantial breakfast.

Free-range eggs cooked in a variety of styles served up with crispy bacon, roasted tomatoes, mushrooms and avocado are delicious and wholesome.

For lunch there's a crispy soft shell crab hawker roll with pickled carrot and daikon, cucumber, coriander and chilli sambal; pulled pork charcoal roll with fennel and cabbage coleslaw and home-made barbecue sauce; and tuna tataki with soba noodles, crispy squid and chili ginger and soy dressing.

Mouth-watering burgers served with chips in cute mini deep fryers; pearl barley risotto with poached chicken, shaved parmesan and rocket; pan seared fillet of fish with fennel lemon and chilli as well as a range of fresh salads and pastries complete the menu.

And while Sisterfields serves up some of the best food in Bali, it's the old-fashioned service served up with genuine smiles that really makes this cafe a standout!

Children are more than welcome, with high chairs available for the little ones.

Babies are scooped up by the staff and carried around, so mum and dad can enjoy a peaceful meal.

The staff just can't do enough for you and it makes for a memorable and happy dining experience.

It's smiles all round at Sisterfields and with a menu designed to tempt, a visit here is a must!

Sisterfields is open from 7am to 5pm and is located at Jalan Kayu Aya, Seminyak.
