What is The Garden Kafe?

Since Ubud is one of the healthiest cities in Asia, The Garden Kafe fits in perfectly. The Garden Kafe is The Yoga Barn’s onsite restaurant, and Ubud’s first raw food restaurant.  The food is mostly vegetarian-vegan, with a small selection of cooked foods. Most of the produce comes from their own organic garden! The menu caters to a typical yogi’s diet and anyone who desires healthy food. They feature raw foods and desserts, fresh juices and smoothies and even special menus for detox and Ayurvedic rejuvenation.

While you dine, you overlook rice fields and the beautiful amphitheater of The Yoga Barn. Connect with your friends and family back home easily by using their complimentary wifi. Or simply sit back and take in the views while reading the newspaper that is provided daily.

Our story

Yoga Barn's onsite restaurant, Garden Kafe - Ubud, Indonesia

We spent a month in Ubud practicing yoga and healthy healthy food.

Before arriving in Ubud, we hadn’t had clean and healthy food for several months.We were craving it! Luckily the Garden Kafe, and Ubud in general, specializes in health food.  Our first meal was extremely memorable if not simply for this reason alone. As we continued to try new things at The Garden Kafe, we started to learn which dishes were the best value and bang for your rupiah. We appreciated the wide selection and variety of food from different regions of the world.

Some of our favorites 

  • Crunchy Beetroot & Walnut Salad
  • Grilled Vegetable Wrap
  • Vegan Tofu & Veggie Burger
  • Tiger Bowl
  • Wheatgrass Shot
  • Before Yoga Energize Tea
  • Sunday Buffet!

The service

The wait staff was attentive most days and always clearly restated our order before bringing it to the kitchen. On busy nights, it can take a while to get served. We never experienced miscommunication or misunderstandings with our orders. Food came out fresh each time.

Garden Kafe hosts buffets twice per week

  • Sunday’s from 12:30PM – 2:30PM
  • Every other Monday from 6PM – 8PM

Garden Kafe as a sister restaurant called “Kafe”

Kafe is located on Hanomen Street and also owned by The Yoga Barn. It boasts a similar menu and is a very popular location for expats and yogis. Also it’s open later than The Garden Kafe.

  1. A new place which I’ve become actually obsessed with is Pizza Cult in Ubud. Amazing food, great service, such a cute venue and really affordable. Also a great place to bring your laptop and work from!
