Bali is a vegan foodie's paradise! With it's close proximity to Australia, it's array of delicious local produce and it's South East Asian influences - there is so much to try and so little time!
I have put together a list of my favourite vegan eats in Bali... so far!
Now this isn't a fully vegan cafe, but my gosh, it is one of my all time faves in Bali! Amazing, amazing, amazing! We loved Shelter so much, we went 3 times in 5 days!
Stunning jungle style interior, up on the second floor, with open sides and the most chilled vibes. You just feel relaxed and like you are in paradise when you walk in. The extensive menu has something for everyone with loads of great vegan options. Everything is presented beautifully and tastes even more incredible than it looks. Prices were super affordable - around $30AUD (300,000IDR) for two people inc. drinks... and worth every cent! Everything was delicious, service was amazing and we loved everything about Shelter.
Would recommend getting there early to avoid waiting for a table. The wait isn’t long even at busier times - but go earlier to avoid.
I loved Kynd! I know people just go here because of the insta-worthy decor, but I loved the food and the whole ethos behind Kynd too! Everything about it is incredible! The food is tasty, perfectly presented and there are so many incredible options!
I’ve been twice on two seperate trips to Bali and have not been disappointed. I recommend the Oreo freakshake, açai bowl, buffalo cauliflower, Big Mac burger and their cookies! All heavenly!
Also, make sure you pop next door to the Kind Creamery and grab some delicious (and very instaworthy again) ice-cream!
My other all time fave! Peloton did not disappoint!
After following along with everybody’s visits to Peloton on Instagram, it was #1 on my to-visit list when I came to Bali... And it was amazing!
A super cute space, an extensive and creative menu and the loveliest staff, we literally couldn’t fault it!I expected it to be crazy busy as we went at lunch time but although there were a number of people eating, it wasn’t crowded in the slightest. The cafe is spacious and well designed - with indoor and outdoor seating - which makes a huge difference.
The menu has some collaborations with Insta foodie Ellie Bullen as well as an amazing array of plant-based goodies that made it really hard to choose. We ended up ordering too much for the two of us, but we didn’t regret it for a second!
We tried a veggie bowl, corn chips with guacamole, Ms. Jackson jackfruit tacos, sweet potato fries, an iced chocolate and a juice and everything was heaven. Definitely, definitely worth a visit. We made the trip from Legian and I wished we had gone a second time to try more. Our bill came to about $35AUD (350,000IDR) which we thought was super affordable. Definitely go.
This place is just the cutest! If you’re after delicious vegan (or vegetarian) food in Bali, then Shady Shack has to be on your list! It felt like we were in the Flintstones or a cute jungle somewhere and ohhh gosh, the food! So many incredible options! We went for the gnocchi, the kebab capers, panko crumbed mushrooms, smashed spuds, smoothies and sparklers and it was all incredible!
Try and head there early, whether for lunch or dinner - as it is super popular and you may have to wait for a table!
Only downside - I forgot to take photos of the food haha!
A traditional Warung (a small-indonesian restuarant or cafe) with some of the best vegan food I’ve ever eaten! You get a massively piled up plate for $4AUD (40,000 rupiah) and you can select 7 options from about 40 plant-based Indonesian meals. Absolutely delicious, staff are lovely and it’s 100% authentic Indonesian!
They have a full menu too that you can order off, but we went with the local buffet style option and it was the best decision! Heavenly!
This place is so frickin cute! Massive, spacious dining setting, hidden up in the mountains of Ubud. The interior is typical Bali — with lots of greenery, open sides, pretty views and a high pitched wooden ceiling. The whole place is quite chilled with lots of bench seating, cushions, little nooks and an outdoor area set by a little pond with lots of trees. The menu was extensive and made it so hard to choose — everything sounded amazing! We went with the Antwerp by the Sea Waffles, Choc Pancakes and a Green Smoothie bowl. We also had a juice each and my friend had a hot choccy. It was all delicious! The standout by far was definitely the waffles and would definitely recommend getting those! The place was lovely and everything you would hope a vegan foodie place to be in Bali. Definitely worth a drive to Ubud!
I also loved:
- Mad Pops in Seminyak for vegan ice-cream!
- Samadi in Canggu for a cute vibe and yummy, healthy vegan food
- Koloni in Canggu. Not a fully vegan restaurant, but they had loads of yummy options! And they had the most delicious tempura tofu!
- Nude in Canggu for a few amazing vegan options and a great vibe.
