UPDATED MAY 2019
As I’ve been exploring Bali for the past month, I’ve found my favorite area to either be Canggu or Ubud… they’re definitely tied at the top of my list!
Although, as I write this, I currently have a week left in Bali and I’m spending it in Canggu.
My favorite part about Canggu is that it’s a haven for vegans!
Cute little cafes seem to be popping up everywhere with a mecca of vegan eats, which is so awesome. An array of places here offer items like smoothie bowls, buddha bowls, vegan burgers, veggie-filled plates, and more.
I love that vegan options are becoming more of a regular thing around the world; it makes my heart so happy!
Another thing I love about Canggu is the surfer vibe. It’s so easy to just chill out on the beach all day, but then at night you can go out and party like there’s no tomorrow. It’s pretty fun here.
Anywho, let’s get to my easy peasy vegan guide for Canggu, shall we?

No doubt this is one of my personal favorite places for plant-based eats, I munched on a crazy good fried “chicken” salad with a goddess dressing and Dan had a sort of Buddha bowl filled with veggie goodness.
And to top things off? A couple donuts and a milkshake, of course! SO GOOD.

Vegetarian Cafes & Restaurants in Canggu, Bali
SECRET SPOT CAFE
A beautiful vegetarian that’s mostly vegan (I believe all the food is vegan, they just offer regular milk and yogurt for coffee and certain toppings), the Secret Spot vegan cafe in Canggu is the spot where you can fill up on incredible smoothie bowls, waffles, delicious raw dishes, and more!
Whether you’re craving a peanut butter and chocolate smoothie bowl, a raw snickers bar, or a classic healthier-for-you burger, the Secret Spot will have you saying “yummmmmm!”.
But shhhh, we don’t want others to know about this place! So keep it a secret. 😉
ZULA VEGETARIAN PARADISE
While this place isn’t in the heart of Canggu (it’s a vegetarian restaurant in Seminyak), it’s a pretty interesting 100% vegan cafe that’s focused on serving up the healthiest plant-based food you can think of!
Plus, it’s not far from the Kynd Community cafe, so I thought I’d include it just in case you’re near Seminyak/Kuta and want to grab something healthy to eat!
Although this vegan Canggu cafe is a bit more on the expensive, if you’re on the hunt for veggie food that’s not only delicious and filling but truly good for your body, this is the place to get it.
I had the spaghetti with meatballs and while the portion was pretty small for the price I paid, it was so filling and in the end I realized I couldn’t have eaten more anyhow!
The best part of this vegetarian restaurant in Bali is that it carries a whole bunch of vegan products in bulk, like nutritional yeast, dried beans, and spices! I was on the hunt for nooch and was so happy I found it here.

THE SHADY SHACK
No doubt, The Shady Shack vegetarian cafe is one of the most popular veggie places in Canggu! Every time I went past it, it always seemed to be packed with people.
Anywho, this is a cute cafe serving healthy, vegetarian and vegan eats in Canggu. Overlooking the nearby rice fields, visitors can order items like super smoothies, teas, raw bowls, vegetarian breakfasts, and more.
I munched on the vegan boss burrito and it was huge! And sooo delicious. Packed with jackfruit, vegan cheese, quinoa, greens, guac and more, and paired with a creamy dressing, this was one of my favorite vegan meals I had while in Bali.
Also, make sure to save your appetite for dessert, as they also have vegan treats there! The carrot cake was a bit dry, but overall it was pretty good, as the “cream cheese” frosting was top notch.

HUNGRY BIRD COFFEE
You have no idea how excited I was to have oatmeal with actual strawberries! Omg.
So strawberries aren’t really readily available in southeast Asia because they don’t grow anywhere around here, which is disappointing, BUT they were in my oatmeal and I was giddy with glee.
The Hungry Bird Cafe is also an adorable place to hang out; it’s definitely aesthetically pleasing on the inside, as well as the outside. AND you can also pay by card here, which is like unheard of in many parts of Bali. So crazy.
Pictured above is the oatmeal made with coconut milk topped with papaya, strawberries, and banana. On the side is a cappuccino with soy milk and a little sugar.

This place is so cute. It’s decorated with like modern laid-back theme and has a nice chill vibe, like the rest of Canggu.
The food is also spectacular; just look at that picture above – amazing. The only downside (but not really) is their pricing, which is a little expensive.
For their vegan burger, it’s IDR 75,000; higher than other places in the area, which is what I’m comparing it to.
I’d definitely still recommend you go there at least once, it’s delicious. No doubt, it’s been one of my favorite vegan eats in Canggu so far.
My favorite thing to order there is their chickpea vegan burger with a side of rosemary roasted potatoes (bloody amazing) with the coconut yogurt aioli.
They also have a ton of other yummy sounding items like smoothies, wraps, salad bowls, raw food, scrambled tofu, zucchini spaghetti, and more.
Check out the Nüde menu here.
The Bali Bowls cafe is an awesome place creating smoothie bowl masterpieces, as well as other tasty vegan eats.
Other than smoothie bowls, they make things like a variety of fun avocado toasts, regular smoothies, fresh juices, and more.
I had a banana smoothie bowl with oats, coconut, cinnamon, avocado (not as weird as you would think), and more bananas. It was amazing. The cafe is a little more expensive than other places around Canggu, but it’s so yummy and good for your body.
The Berawa Kitchen in Canggu, Bali is a cute little square/open area full of yummy food stands serving various types of food like sushi, burritos, traditional Indonesian food, pizza, and more.
I had some delicious vegan jackfruit tacos that blew me away!
It’s also a great place to just hang out with friends and have a couple beers.
Sometimes there’s even live music to listen to. Berawa Kitchen has a great atmosphere that’s sure to win you over. Make to check it out if you’re ever in the area! As it’s one of my favorite little places to grab some vegan food in Canggu.

ROJO’S BREAKFAST BALI
I might be a little biased towards this cute cafe but the lady that runs the place, Indah, is an amazing person!
I went here like three days in a row because the vegetarian burger with the side salad is so unbelievably delicious and Indah is wonderful to talk to. She really wants all of her customers to have a superb experience.
My favorite things to order here are either the fruit bowl, iced coffee with coconut milk and sugar, or the vegetarian burger combo.
If you order the vegetarian burger but would like to make it vegan, be sure to order it without an egg and Indah will let you substitute the cheese with avocado for free!
(Note: Unfortunately, I recently visited Rojo’s Breakfast Bali and they no longer offer a vegan option! But, with that said, I thought I’d still keep it on the list, as it offers a number of delicious vegetarian options. Plus, the coconut coffee is really cheap and delicious!)
