Monkey Cave Espresso

This little hole-in-the-wall café is our favourite coffee spot in Ubud. The baristas serve up a delicious brew with a dose of good personality. They have a cute sitting area on top of the espresso bar. A great place for people watching while sipping your coffee.

Watercress Cafe in Ubud, Bali

Watercress Cafe Ubud

Watercress is without a doubt, the best cafe in Ubud! They do excellent coffee, breakfast, lunch and dinner. And their cocktails are not bad too. In our opinion, they serve the best breakfast in Ubud, and indeed most of Bali. Owned by a couple of Aussie blokes who saw an opportunity for cafés in Bali serving delicious, distinctly Aussie-style food (after-all, Bali is practically a second home for many Australians). They also provide employment for a number of local Balinese people who are clearly very passionate about their job and provide excellent service.

The food at Garden Kafe at the Yoga Barn in Ubud, Bali

Garden Kafe

Our go-to spot when we're feeling like a healthy lunch in Ubud. The Garden Kafe is located at the iconic Yoga Barn. An excellent place for a bite to eat after a relaxing yoga class, which is coincidentally one of the top things to do in Ubud. But even if you're not keen on yoga, come and hang with local yogis and ex-pats who rate this as one of the best places to eat in Ubud! Feast on delicious, healthy salads, smoothies, burritos, raw treats and Ayurvedic foods. Garden Kafe is vegan and vegetarian-friendly, with meat options available also.

DUMBO

DUMBO is a newly opened restaurant that we quite literally stumbled upon. And I’m so glad we did. After one sitting it quickly became a top contender on our list of the best restaurants in Ubud. With stunning architectural design, great music, a striking feature wood-fired pizza oven and swanky cocktail bar, DUMBO offer fabulous vegetarian Italian food in a stylish setting. They even donate a percentage of their profits to orangutan preservation. I cannot wait to go back.

Uma Cucina

Uma Cucina is another excellent Italian restaurant, located in the beautiful Como Uma Ubud luxury resort, which we also loved so much, we stayed there three times! But back to the food… There’s a reason why Uma Cucina is considered by many ex-pats as one of the best restaurants in Ubud, the service is impeccable! We’ve eaten here three times in two years, and the staff remembered our name every time! The food is also divine, and they have a good selection of Italian wines on offer.

Café Wayan & Bakery

Café Wayan, located off bustling Monkey Forest Road, is something of an institution and touted by many as the best cafe in Ubud that serves Indonesian food.

KAFE is the sister venue to the Garden Kafe at Yoga Barn and is also one of our favourite places to eat in Ubud. While the Garden Kafe has a more relaxing garden setting, KAFE is conveniently located, on the main street, within walking distance from the Ubud Market. The menu offers pretty much the same at both venues – great, healthy food.

Best Cafes and Restaurants with a View

Jungle Fish

A great place to get your smoothie bowl hit. Mudra Café is only small, catering to 15 people at a time and is a great place for lunch in Ubud. But get there early, we had to come back a few times because it was full.
