So without further ado, please enjoy our Guide to the Best Vegan Eats in Uluwatu & The Bukit. 

Lands End


You know the saying “good things come in small packages”, well this cozy little slice of foodie heaven is exactly that. It’s situated in a quieter part of town between Uluwatu Temple and Single Fin, it’s a firm favourite with the local expat crowd and travellers alike. Stop in for some of the most delicious, nutritious and scrumptiously unpretentious food on the island. It’s simple food, made love using the highest quality ingredients – always super fresh and mostly organic. Have a meal, a smoothie and DO NOT skip a visit to their dessert fridge. It’s filled daily with their famous vegan treats that are out-of-this-world good! We absolutely LOVE this hidden gem and we highly recommend you stop by when in town. 



A Bingin favourite! We are so lucky to have this place on our doorstep. Located in the heart of Bingin Village, its garden setting and relaxed atmosphere make it the perfect spot to refuel anytime of the day or night. The menu is vegan friendly with healthy bowls, salads and  smoothies on offer. Craving a burger? The Vegan Big Mac is ridiculously good! They also boast an extensive drinks menu, we personally recommend their Margarita which you can order by the glass or jug. Before you leave, pop into their boutique shop, “Toko”. You’ll find a range of items from clothing & jewellery  reusable water bottles, metal straws & everything in between. If you’re around on a Thursday night – don’t miss their live music nights. You can get up to date info on their IG. 



You won’t forget a visit to this unique space. The traditional wooden joglo building is home to a great surf/lifestyle shop with a cafe out the back. It has a chilled vibe with great coffee and excellent food. Sit in their air conditioned gallery space, outside in their garden or on comfy couches in the shop. They have great vegan options – their vegan burrito and jackfruit tacos are gloriously good! They also have “healthy” cakes, craft beers and a wide selection of Kombucha and kefir drinks for a happy and healthy gut. Be sure to check out their library of hand selected books, artwork, photo gallery & surfing memorabilia. They also have weekly live music and movie nights – check their insta for what’s playing.



Situated on the main Uluwatu road, this bustling roadside eatery will satisfy the senses. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner – their wonderful staff serve up vibrant and delicious cafe style food – from smoothie bowls, fluffy pancakes, salads to avocado on toast. Their coffee is LEGIT! We love this little spot. Definitely worth a visit when in town. Its proximity to Thomas beach means it’s the perfect pre or post beach spot!



Moo = ‘Mostly Organic Origins’. Perched at the top of the Uluwatu stairs, next to Single fin, this hole in the wall eatery is a favourite with surfers, expats and visitors alike. They serve up delectable juices, scrumptious salads, heavenly  smoothie bowls along with delicious wraps, sandwiches and bagels. Whether you’re a sweet tooth or a sucker for savoury, this little bar has something for everyone and a killer view to boot. Be sure to swing by when in Uluwatu. 




Shaka Riki, one of Uluwatu’s most loved Japanese restaurants, also offers a wondrously extensive selection of vegan dishes! Hurrah! Try their scrumptious sushi rolls (they have 12 vegan options and all are to die for!), but we especially love the Anemone rolls or the Daisy rolls. You must also try their baked Miso Eggplant, Vegan Gyoza. Oishī! If you’re a noodle lover – go for the Miso Ramen or the Vegan Kakiage Soba.  Or have it all! You won’t be disappointed! 




Another hidden gem and one of the yummiest vegetarian & vegan-friendly cafes in Bali. An example of what happens when the freshest, highest quality organic produce is used. They whip up tasty dishes, raw treats, and thirst quenching juices and smoothies that are sure to leave you feeling good on the inside and glowing on the outside.  A visit is definitely worth the ride and a must-stop while exploring Balangan.



An organic cafe and health food store, Bali Buda has been bringing quality produce to the health conscious in Bali for over 25 years. We like to refer to it as the nenek (grandmother) of Bali cafe’s. Located in the heart of bustling Ungasan, pop in and grab some snacks, a bottle of kombucha, some hummus or just some vitamins. You can also stock up on pantry needs or sit down and enjoy a hearty meal. This place is such a loved institution in Bali, the have 6 stores. FYI – they also support local farmers, community initiatives and environmental sustainability programs across Bali. 



Newly opened in 2021, SaladLab is a breath of fresh air to any discerning herbivore who loves a “build your own salad” situation. It has a prime central location for any Bukit dweller or visitor on the bustling main road in Ungasan. Upon entry you you’re welcomed with the wise words of Hippocrates – “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” and a rainbow selection salads, vegetables, toppings and dressings. They also have slow pressed juices & smoothie bowls. It’s really really good! TakeAway, dine in & GoFood delivery.



Hidden in the back streets of Ungasan, Tara Green’s vegan and vegetarian menu is delicious. Dishes are made with the freshest, highest quality produce from their own gardens. Must haves are the Mushroom Boss (deliciously decadent!), the Vegan Pancakes (with caramelised banana, maple syrup & peanut butter) and the Soba Noodle Salad (fresh, crisp, yum!). You can also wander through the hydroponic garden and pick your own fresh herbs, lettuce, cherry tomatoes & more to take home. Definitely worth a visit.
