Ubud is a raw food mecca with at least a dozen raw food cafes and restaurants with a partly raw food menu or a fully raw food selection. Ubud is literally PACKED with restaurants that serve some excellent raw food as well as vegan and vegetarian options. So, how can you not try a bit of everything that you see on the menus? If you are a person who loves organic vegetarian and raw food as I do and you are passing by Ubud in Bali, then this post about raw food restaurants in Ubud is for you.

Here are my top 10 raw food restaurants in Ubud Bali (in alphabetical order):

1. Alchemy Raw Food Restaurant in Ubud

Definitely the number 1 raw food restaurant in Ubud. I love their salad bar and fresh juices and smoothies. They only have raw food on the menu and are a bit out of Ubud centre in Penestenan but it’s well worth the walk or drive. They also deliver – great if you want to do a juice fast.

Location: Jl. Penestanan Kelod, Ubud, Bali

2. Bali Buda Ubud

An Ubud expats institution, Bali Buda offers raw food as well as vegetarian and vegan options. Great breakfast, lots of space and super friendly service. When it’s busy you sometimes have to wait a bit for your order to arrive, it’s best not to be in a hurry when you come here. My favorites are the gluten free wraps and the pizzas!

Location: Jl. Jembawan, Ubud, Bali

3. Clear Café

After Clear burned down in 2014, it reopened in a new location in Jalan Campuhan, across the street from Bridges. The menu includes lots of healthy drinks and also raw food options, for example raw pizza with homemade pesto, cashew cheese, fresh spinach and tomatoes and kalamata olives. The menu is maybe a bit pretentious, but everything I tried was really good and the quality is very high.

Location: Jalan Campuhan, Ubud, Bali

4. Earth Café Restaurant Ubud

Formerly known as “Down To Earth”. The menu is all vegetarian with a few raw options, for example raw power house porridge with almonds, cashews, sunflower seeds, flaxseeds, chia seeds, dry apricot, goji berries and tropical condiments marinated in coconut water. Lot’s of gluten free options on the menu too. Not really cheap but very high quality. I especially recommend the Very Berry Smoothie (sooo good!) and the Dragon Bowl.

Location: Jl. Goutama Selatan, Ubud, Bali

5. Kafe Ubud

I just love Kafe in Hanoman street! The quality is outstanding and they have a huge menu with lots of options, raw food as well as vegetarian and vegan and some meat and fish dishes also. With good Wi-Fi all day upstairs, I spent a lot of my time there working and devouring all the yummy food. My favorite is the Bali Lime Mint Slush and the raw spirulina mint cake is amazing.

6. Little k (Garden Cafe)

Little k or Garden Cafe is located within the yoga barn and offers a similar menu as Kafe. They always have some raw food options, raw desserts, as well as vegetarian, vegan and Ayurveda options. It’s a great place to hang out after a yoga class and meet some fellow yogis, very social and friendly.

Location: Within Yoga Barn, Jalan Raya Pengosekan, Ubud, Bali

7. Living Food Lab Hubud

This little restaurant is located within Hubud, the co-working space in Ubud. They serve only raw food and have a great salad bar, my lunch most days when I have been working at Hubud. For only 40T IDR you get a yummy salad with 7 toppings of your choice. I recommend the pesto dressing, yummy!

Location: Monkey Forest Rd.

8. Soma Restaurant Ubud

Soma is an Ubud institution and always busy. Lots of options, raw food and vegetarian + vegan food. I really liked the zucchini pasta. I haven’t been there a lot though, I don’t really know why. Other people are raving about it, so try it out for yourself!

Location: Jl. Goutama, Ubud, Bali

9. Taksu Restaurant Ubud

Taksu restaurant is a bit more upscale and offers views of a stunning garden. Raw options on the menu include yummy raw dessert options like cacao avocado pudding or macadamia apple pie. Taksu has also a yoga studio and spa, you can easily spend a whole day of pampering here.

Location: Jl. Goutama, Ubud, Bali

10. The Seeds Of Life

Relatively new kid on the raw food block in Ubud. The menu of this raw food restaurant in Ubud is all raw and has lots of amazing raw food options, for example raw banana & maple pancakes.
