Ubud is a perfect destination for vegetarians. The Balinese weather supports the growth of delicious veggies and juicy tropical fruits. Most restaurants have vegetarian options and try to locally source organic products, some of them even have their own permaculture garden. The results are mouthwatering vegetarian dishes: you’ll be spoiled for choice.
With a breathtaking view on the Tjampuhan Ridge, the airy terrace of The Elephant is the spot in Ubud to have both a relaxing and healthy weekend brunch. All the dishes on the menu are 100% vegetarian, sourced and prepared in a sustainable manner, with vegan and gluten-free options if requested. The food here is not only good, but “does good.” The Elephant is recognized by the Slow Food movement for their environmentally-aware and socially-fair work practices.
Located in the oasis of peace of The Yoga Barn, the Garden Kafe serves a wide selection of vegan, vegetarian, raw and Ayurvedic food. The tofu-tempeh scramble and the breakfast burrito are divine.
