Bali, Indonesia is known for being the land of wellness, cheap eats, and rich adventures. Over the last few years, plant-based diets have become increasingly popular, and now Bali is known to be a vegan food paradise with new cafes springing up regularly; so many, indeed, that you’ll find it difficult to eat at all of them unless you have a month or more in Bali! To save you hours on Yelp and Trip Advisor, we’ve compiled a list of where to find the best vegan food in Bali and have separated our favorites by village!
What looks like nothing more than a hip surf store from the front is really a lively cafe with the best food in Uluwatu in the back. Just walk through the surf shop to find the most incredible smoothie bowls, and endless vegan options! Our favorites are the chia pudding bowl, and the vegan nasi campur !
This cute little outdoor cafe serves delicious food from sunup to sundown. A smaller menu than Drifter, but it has some great vegan options! Cashew Tree is adjacent to Bali Fitness Center, so you can crush a workout and then enjoy 20% off of your breakfast/lunch at the cafe. Cashew Tree are also known for hosting up-beat parties with live music every Thursday night.
The Loft has a broad menu loaded with delicious vegan and non-vegan options. Try the nachos and veggie stir fry, they won’t disappoint!
With locations in both Uluwatu and Seminyak, Nalu bowls provides delicious smoothie bowls with fresh ingredients and unique combinations across the island of Bali. Nalu Bowls are coveted by most travelers who don’t have a chance to try them, so the only downside is that they don’t have a store in every village.
This is our go-to casual vegan cafe when visiting Ubud. Wether you’re solo or with friends, it’s a wonderful atmosphere to hangout, relax, and enjoy some delicious plant based (or not plant based) food. The vegan menu is extensive and offers so many different types of cuisine. We love the Mexican burrito, and the kitchari!
Probably the best kept vegan secret in Ubud! This place is a little off the beaten track, but totally worth the extra effort. A nice outdoor restaurant environment is complemented by a beautiful menu. Don’t forget to try the desserts! Their vegan passionfruit mango cheesecake is our favorite.
If you’re not a fan of lemon zest, this is NOT the spot for you! Zest offers a unique vegan menu with lemon zest added to literally every dish. We know it’s warm in Bali but their soups are to die for!
This casual cafe is packed with yummy food! With a large menu full of smoothies and fresh veggies it’s hard to go wrong. Their veggie bowls are hands-down the best!
Peloton is our undisputed champion for the best vegan food in Bali. This spot ha by far the best vegan food we have found on the island and the menu is loaded with so many delicious options that one can enjoy 3 meals a day there. Our favorites are the breakfast burrito, green smoothie bowl, and the lasagna! Just to reassure you, it’s ALL vegan! Don’t forget to save room for dessert too! The chocolate Oreo tart is out of this world!
The ambiance of Cafe Vida offers one of the best hangout environments if you’re keen to mingle and enjoy some good company. Their menu is diverse, healthy, and delicious offering shots, teas, curries, you name it! This is a wonderful choice for vegans and non-vegans alike, as they offer plenty of both!
Kynd was one of the first vegan spots in Bali and helped usher in an era of delicious, plant based restaurants across the island. The chefs design cute little smoothie bowls with words such as “Bali vibes” or “love” carved into the fruit toppings, so you’ll see a bunch of their food posted on Instagram!
Simple yet satisfying! This small cafe is part cafe and part healthy market, so you can buy snacks to take home after you’ve enjoyed your meal. We love to grab healthy snacks for the flight as we never eat airplane food.
Sanur is not the most popular tourist destination, but we spent 2 months living there a few years back, so we had to add a couple of our favorites to the list. Bali Buda is one of the best Vegan spots in Sanur that also offers meat and vegetarian options. They also have a health food market, so you can buy delicious snacks, jamu, etc.
If you’re looking for some home-cooked healthy meals, Malaika has you covered! Malaika is the sweetest woman who always makes us feel at home. She experiments with delicious dessert recipes and has us be her taste testers.
