Discover the hottest food spots in Bali! In this post I’ve included my favorite restaurants, cafes, gelaterias, and bars in Ubud, Seminyak, and Canggu.
The food scene in Bali is very impressive. You can pretty much find anything that you like, but the vegetarian/vegan food scene is quite big. We found that in Bali, high-quality vegan dishes are quite popular. They’re always made with the freshest ingredients, and the flavors are always spot on!
So here’s a list of our favorite Bali vegan and vegetarian (with vegan options) cafes and restaurants that I’m sure that you will love too.
Alchemy Academy – Ubud
This restaurant is just wonderful and is definitely one of my favorite places in Ubud. It’s 100% plant-based and raw, with a relaxing atmosphere. It’s just so zen. If you happen to visit the monkey forest, or visit the rice terraces in Ubud then make sure to go to Alchemy for a meal or even just a smoothie. It’s 100% vegan and they use the freshest ingredients when preparing the food.
I also really love the fact that Alchemy use bamboo straws!
Alchemy offer a lovely smoothie bowl bar in the mornings and a fantastic salad bar for lunch and dinner. They also have a menu with vegan burgers and wraps.
Tip: At Alchemy they can make you a coffee or a hot drink of your choice to take away. Try the turmeric latte!
Kismet – Ubud
We only spent 3 days in Ubud, and ate 3 times at Kismet during our stay. I love the decor at this restaurant, it’s truly unique. And they serve a fantastic menu of vegetarian and vegan dishes.
It’s a 2-floor restaurant, downstairs you can choose to either sit outside or inside. But in Bali, most restaurants are open spaces to outside so it’s like you’re sitting outdoors even if you’ve decided to sit indoors.
We recommend that you try the garlic chili lime edamame, halloumi burger (my husband’s favorite), bowls of goodness (I love the classic bowl and add roasted pumpkin to it, plus vegan satay or tempeh), and fresh summer rolls.
If you’re planning to go for dinner, it might be worth making a reservation as the restaurant can get really busy. You could also order delivery through the GO-JEK app.
Tip: Kismet only use metal straws in their restaurant, if you like them you can even buy your own stainless steel straw downstairs for really cheap.
Sayuri Healing Food – Ubud
This restaurant is 100% raw, vegan, and gluten-free. They believe that serving raw-living food helps enhance our healing process, healthy rejuvenation and longevity in the physical, emotional and spiritual process. I had a smoothie bowl there that was really good, and my husband tried their raw falafel wrap which I thought was really interesting.
They also organize yoga classes, movie nights, live music nights and raw food classes.
KOKOLATO Ice Cream – Ubud
Balinese vegan gelato in the heart of Ubud. The gelato and the cones are gluten-free, soy-free, nut-free and 100% vegan. They make very interesting flavors such as raw cacao, key lime pie, and moringa mint chip.
La Laguna – Canggu
We visited this beach bar/beach club on our last day in Bali. It’s like a Spanish gypsy dream as the whole place is decorated with beautiful wooden tarot reading carriages, fairy lights, beautiful painted wooden furniture, and gypsy cushions.
If you’re looking to visit a place for spectacular sunsets and amazing cocktails, then this is the place that you need to go to!
They also serve food and sheesha. Free parking is available.
Tip: Check what time is sunset and go at least 45 minutes before that to be able to get a table with a lovely view, or just make a reservation as it can get really busy at sunset.
The Shady Shack – Canggu
This is probably our favorite place to eat in Bali! We only had the chance to go there once, but I honestly can’t go to go again! Everything that we ordered was sooo perfect. It’s a vegetarian restaurant, but they also serve a lot of vegan options.
The Shady Shack is open for lunch and dinner and is located in a lovely area in Canggu surrounded by rice terraces and many other cafes. It’s also not far away from the beach.
We ordered a beautiful halloumi buddha style bowl, that came with lots of veggies, zoodles, and hummus. And a veg burger with smashed spuds and vegan mayonnaise. Both dishes were amazing! The smoothies were also great, I really liked the choc tops smoothie, it’s so rich and has the texture of a creamy shake!
Tip: The Shady Shack is open daily from 7:30 am until 10:00 pm, and free parking is available.
KYND Community – Seminyak
This health cafe is 100% vegan, serving breakfast and lunch daily. They make smoothie bowls with personalized toppings for breakfast, topped toasts, vegan burgers, and many more! They also have a big range of vegan desserts to choose from.
Kynd Community used to be a very small cafe, but then they opened an extension next door and their decor is stunning! Plenty of seating area, and they’re open until late.
To view their menu, follow this link.
Tip: These’s a little shop inside the cafe, check out the tropical brass spoons. I bought one for myself and now I use it to enjoy my smoothie bowls.
My Warung – Canggu
If you want to try traditional Indonesian dishes, then definitely go to My Warung! They serve Indonesian food, as well as international dishes. Their mushroom tofu curry is to die for, and they also serve a selection of fresh juices and cakes.
The decor of the cafe is just beautiful, it’s filled with printed pictures and plants. There’s a branch in Ubud, and another in Canggu that we visited and loved.
Vegan and vegetarian options are available on the menu.
Sea Circus – Seminyak
Sea Circus is another cute dining spot in Seminyak, it’s always full and their food is delicious! They serve breakfast starting at 7:30 in the morning, or pop over at lunch or dinner (it’s open until late!).
It’s also a great spot for lovely cocktails and drinks. Vegan and vegetarian options are available on the menu, and their smoothies and fresh juices are insanely fresh!
MAD Popsicle Creamery – Seminyak
The texture of the ice creams in this ice creamery is incredible! The ice cream is 100% vegan made from cold-pressed coconut milk, and you can choose from so many amazing flavors.
They also make artisanal popsicles made with locally sourced seasonal fruits, and my favorite flavor at Mad Pops is coconut swirl.
Revolver Espresso – Seminyak
A lovely boutique coffee house in Seminyak. Revolver Espresso is perfect to grab a coffee, a milkshake or even to grab lunch. There are a few vegan options on the menu to choose from, including foods and drinks. View the menu here.
The decor of the coffee house is very unique, and the music is always good!
