ABOUT KAFE UBUD
KAFE is a lively, wholesome food cafe, nestled in the heart of Ubud on Jalan Hanoman. KAFE has a wide variety of healthy vegetarian and vegan food options from local, organic suppliers. Fusing together the tropical laid back vibes of Ubud with a quirky New York bistro, KAFE is the ultimate chill out spot open every day of the week from 7am – 11pm.
Since opening in 2005, our menu at KAFE Ubud has been carefully nurtured and developed in line with the owners ethos of a healthy, environmentally-conscious lifestyle. We use Bali-harvested, organic and chemical-free produce whenever possible. Our kitchen produces a wide range of vegetarian and vegan food, raw, gluten-free, macrobiotic and world cuisine dishes from Mexican to Italian or a range of Indonesian specialities.
Our fun and friendly team at KAFE has grown to a large family of around 20 over the years. Our Head Chef, Adi and Manager, Franky have been with KAFE for almost 10 years and are constantly on the look out for new ways to improve our healthy drinks and dishes at KAFE.
KAFE is a dog friendly restaurant and we have a few of our own dogs, including Buleleng. He is very old and sadly blind, so we ask that you do not pet him as he can bite with unfamiliar pats from strangers.
We believe at KAFE Ubud that in order to coexist in peaceful harmony between people and nature, all our activities must take the environment into consideration. Minimizing waste, using locally sourced, fair-trade produce and recycling materials wherever possible is the mission and environmental commitment of our owners.
KAFE took part in “Bali Cantik Tanpa Plastik” – Say No To Plastic campaign and we are proud to be one of the first restaurants in Ubud to stop using plastic straws and influenced many other restaurants to stop using plastic straws and to reduce their plastic bag usage over the years. At KAFE, we recycle wherever possible including all of our waste, separating between compostable, plastic and paper and use recycled cardboard for all our deliveries.
KAFE Kares is a little shop within KAFE which sells a wide range of eco-friendly crafts, organic food and health products made by small local businesses in Bali with profits going towards charitable projects throughout Indonesia. The rustic furniture throughout KAFE has been made from reclaimed wood, hand constructed by Dek’s studio in Ubud. KAFE Ubud consciously aims through various movements, to support Bali’s social, economic and environmental sustainability.
KAFE is part of the BaliSpirit group supporting non-profit partners:

“I felt at home here!”
Loved this place so much we went every day. The wide range of food and drink is excellent. We had two picky kids and they ate more food here than anywhere else, even ordered seconds. My favourite is the red rice nasi goreng, but there are so many yummy foods, you are spoilt for choice. The chairs are comfy, the atmosphere is great and we didn't feel under any pressure to eat and leave ... so we spent many happy hours having juices, beers, coffee - food. Clean toilets, good free wifi and good prices.
“KAFE is an Ubud institution!”
Kafe is a super restaurant. Not only is the food fantastic, healthy and dependable, but the staff is fantastic! Also, it's sort of like Cheers - everyone there knows each other and you're bound to run into familiar faces. Don't be surprised if you soon become a regular 🙂
Oh Kafe, I dream about your mezze plate. I stayed in Ubud for a month and Kafe quickly became one of my staples for all meals. The fresh juices were fantastic (highly recommend the one with apple and ginger, energy something), the parmesan pesto eggs were always a home run, and the mezze plate...oh the mezze plate. I could eat that feta for literally every meal. Coming back in Feb and bringing friends to experience it!
Chased down the stairs from the bathroom by a big dog!!
Our favorite bad review:
"The food was quite nice, and the coffee was also pretty good. However! When I finished my meal I needed to use the restroom. On my way back from the bathroom, a large dog literally came charging at me and chased me down the stairs. I am very phobic of dogs so naturally I was extremely upset. I couldn't contain my fear and (very embarrassingly) burst into tears. The 3-4 staff members standing around all burst out laughing at me. To be fair, I did get a half-hearted "sorry, sorry" through the giggles. I will NOT be going back!"
