What is the best vegan restaurant in Ubud? Well, unfortunately we didn’t hit all of them, but we tried a lot of amazing food during our stay in the city and have a few favorite recommendations! Here are our top three vegan restaurants in Ubud along with our top three vegetarian restaurants that have vegan options!
Top 3 Vegan Restaurants in Ubud, Bali
Jl. Penestanan Kelod No.75, Ubud, Sayan, Ubud, Kabupaten Gianyar, Bali 80571, Indonesia
Alchemy is an all raw, all vegan restaurant just outside of town and totally worth renting a motorbike to get to. We had nachos, a pizza, a couple of desserts, and a few smoothies, and everything was amazing! Just as much as we loved the tastes, flavors, and textures, the raw food made us feel great!
2. Earth Cafe & Market
Jl. Goutama Selatan, Ubud, Bali 80571, Indonesia
Earth Cafe recently changed to an all vegan menu and also has a cool market and clothing store attached. We had pancakes, their tofu scramble plate, and a smoothie. Their dessert case looked incredible too, but there are only so many hours in a day and Ubud is filled with so much great food that we just couldn’t possibly try everything! Haha!
3. The Seeds of Life
Jalan Gootama No. 2, Ubud, Gianyar, Kabupaten Gianyar, Bali 80571, Indonesia
The Seeds of Life is another all raw, all vegan restaurant, but this one is right in the middle of the city. It’s on a very small street and blends in well, so it’s kind of easy to miss. We had warm (but still raw) lasagna, a couple different kinds of wraps, a hummus and flax cracker plate, and a few smoothies.
Top 3 Vegetarian Restaurants (For Vegans) in Ubud, Bali
(These are restaurants that aren’t 100% vegan, but have plenty of vegan options. We loved them all, so we didn’t want to leave them out of the list!)
1. Warung Sopa
Jalan Sugriwa No.29-35, Ubud, Gianyar, Kabupaten Gianyar, Bali 80571, Indonesia
Warung Sopa was a really great find in Ubud! It was the only place we found that offered prepared food, which was great for taking with us on our motorbike adventures. Also, since the prepared food was all small and cheap, it allowed us to try out a bunch of different things. We loved the tofu balls and vegan tomato quiche! And of course…the deserts!!
2. Vegan Buffet
Right across from the market at the end of Hanoman St. is a little hole in the wall cafe that serves a vegan buffet every day for about the equivalent of $3.75 USD (50,000 IDR). The food was great, and you can’t beat the price for a hot buffet! They also have a great case of vegan cakes and cookies—but beware! Not all the cakes are vegan, so make sure you know what you are getting.
Sorry for the lack of info on this one (I don’t even know if it has a name, haha.), but if you go to Ubud, it’s not hard to find! Just head towards the Sacred Monkey Forest on Hanoman St., and when you see the big Coco Supermarket on your left, the vegan buffet is on your right (just before the fork in the road).
3. Dayu’s Warung
Jl. Sugriwa No. 28X, Padang Tegal Mekar Sari, Ubud, Kabupaten Gianyar, Bali 80571, Indonesia
Dayu’s Warung is not all vegan, but has a lot of vegan options on the menu, in the dessert case, and on their snack shelves to take away. It’s right in the middle of the city, easy to find, and like most place in Ubud, has lounge style seating. We had purple sweet potato balls, an assortment of pumpkin curry dishes, and their “burger” that is more like a purple potato salad. Oh, and of course we had a smoothie and brownie!
27X, Jl. Goutama Sel., Ubud, Kabupaten Gianyar, Bali 80571, Indonesia
Honorable mention goes to Kismet because it’s more expensive than we were budgeting each day for food. No photos of this one, but the atmosphere is like a hip lounge, and the food is great! We went twice and got the same thing both times…a salad bowl with rice noodles and vegan satay skewers with peanut sauce. Kismet is more on the expensive side, so if you’re on a backpacker budget like us, be careful here, haha!
