Information before you go
Bali Buddha Cafe isn't hard to miss due to its bright purple colored
building. It is located on Jalan Jembawan (side
street of Jalan Raya), right in front of the Ubud Post Office.
The cafe is a popular hang-out among travelers visiting Ubud and there are people meeting each other here over sipping a healthy fruit juice or herbal tea.
It's also one of those relaxed restaurants where you could read a good book or today's newspaper.
Outside the shop there is a billboard with all kinds of ads on courses in Ubud, especially yoga and meditation courses but also on house rental, non-profit organizations, up coming events etc.

The Buddha Cafe also has a health food store, which is located on the ground floor. It sells all kinds of products which are health related such as various seeds, rice milk, cereals, organic products and many more.
These products are hard to find in Indonesia so a real treat for
those who are traveling for a long period of time.
The best thing I like from the shop are the many snacks and breads that are displayed.
These snacks are homemade and they just sound and
look delicious. I definitely had my share of the sticky cinnamon role
and the yogurt raisin scones...;-)
But there is also dark wholemeal and rye bread, rice bread, bagels, carrot cake, cheese cake and so much more that makes it too much to list.
When you visit Bali you might want to check this place
if you miss homemade bread...
All these goodies are also found back of the cafe's menu.
The Buddha cafe is done properly. In the first section you have cushioned seats where you can comfortably have your breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Climbing up a few stairs you enter the other section, which has wooden tables and chairs, but also benches and seats where you can sit for hours while enjoying the wide selection of healing- and herbal teas.
It takes a while before you have glanced through the entire menu. Almost for every dish there is information on the many health benefits of the ingredients used.
I don't know where to begin to describe all the food that they serve. Soups, burgers, Italian, sandwiches, Mexican, Indonesian food and even raw vegan food....
the unique thing about it is that original combinations are used in
Additionally you have the possibility to choose how you want your dish served.
For instance the pizza can be made from wheat flour, rice flour (gluten free), spelt or rye crust. And the same counts for the sandwiches and pastas.
Even for their creamy pasta sauce you can choose any type of nut milk to replace the cream, which is a healthier option.
Deciding what to choose from all the great dishes
Because it was difficult for us to choose from all the mouth-watering food, we went back several times.
The hard working staff really do their best to get your order as quick as possible, but it's a bit chaotic sometimes because there are just too many customers who need to be served.
So a little 'awkward' tip from us, when they serve your food ask for the bill immediately.
Mmmm? Yep, it takes a while before your food arrives but this also counts for the bill. Once you're finished eating you can leave whenever you want, instead of standing in line to pay.

When I wrote the mail I never really expected a reply. I might have expected a computer generated but never a personally written one. The information you provided is invaluable, thank you so very much. I have been using your website as a bible through Bali. Through your recommendation, I will be heading to Ubud then follow the sightseeing route to the coast of Candidasa.
WOW...what an awesome website. I could only dream that there would be a website like this for all our travel destinations! You guys have done an fabulous job and now, I am sooo excited about our upcoming trip to Bali. To be honest, I wasn't quite sure Bali was the place for us considering some of the travel warnings (we are Americans). But I can tell from your experiences that the Bali people are so very kind and peaceful.
