Maybe the best Nasi Goreng

Nice place with vegan options, the Nasi Goreng (with Tempeh instead of egg) was sooooo delicious. Tasted a little bit like Pad Thai. And the Balinese Curry was also very very tasty! It is a little bit pricy but worth it!

Pros: Vegan options, Nasi Goreng and Balinese Curry, Nice atmosphere inside

Cons: Little bit pricy, No free water , Near to busy street

great jackfruit dish

Atman Kafe is located on Hanoman Street and is always busy. The décor is very earthy and their food is incredible. The name Atman means the innermost essence of each individual to the Supreme Universal Self. In Layman terms, the little voice or knowing within your heart that guides you and if you follow its wisdom it will guide you far better than your mind ever will.

I must admit, here at Atman Kafe, I have had the most interesting dish of my life here. The one with jackfruit. It's called Jukut Nangka (pronounced joo-koot Nung-kaa). It's a local dish which is slow cooked young jackfruit with local spices and beans, served with red and white rice. Still looking for the recipe.

Get the vegan salted caramel mylkshake!

Wow, what a treat... I've had a lot of mylkshakes and the salted caramel with coconut mylk is right up there with the best. So creamy, so tasty. I had the tempeh scrambles on sourdough which was great and my partner really enjoyed the vegan pizza. The atmosphere is nice and the staff are friendly. We'll be back during our stay if only to get as many of the mylkshakes as possible!

Pros: Plenty of vegan options, Amazing mylkshakes, 'Proper' basil in some dishes!

Cons: Serves non-vegan dishes

Coffee was terrible - clearly this place is under new management

Very disappointing. In 2018 they had the best coffee, and the coconut milk made it even better. Now a year later and 1 in 3 cups of coffee are bad. I ordered a cappuccino with ordinary milk and got a weak watered down over heated liquid. They even sprinkled chocolate on top and I did not even ask for that. The drink was so weak there was no coffee or milk foam sticking to the cup. Clearly this is a training issue or broken machine or both. I don’t understand why the standard has slipped here. They used to have a nice temper scramble for breakfast but without a good coffee it’s not complete. Also they give you a warm water , like they cannot even chill the water. Last time I’ll be back, they can’t make coffee that sticks to the edge, as that’s how you know it served at correct temperature and the foam milk was not over heated.

Pros: Polite staff

Cons: Can't make coffee, Wrong temperature of coffee, Added sprinkled chocolate on top to hide the mess

Good all day option

Lots of labelled vegan options, including desserts. Open for all meals, in nice restaurant set up, which includes a good shop
Breakfast really nice....tempe scramble and coconut porridge. Big portions. Scramble had a lot of nice veg in too, and really tasty. Good coffee with different mill options
Evening meals were good, but preferred breakfast. Balinese curry and veg soup with rice. Portions on the small side for the price compared to other places. Good flavour though. Falafel was tasty, very crispy and actually a pretty big size!!
Really nice desserts. Had the Apple strudel cake and choc beetroot, and both were great. Sells vegan ice cream too
Friendly staff
There are 2 or maybe 3 restaurants in Ubud, sane menu and similar feel

Pros: Lots of food options, Variety of choices, Coffee n cake!!

Food was okay not great, juices weren’t great either but there’s a lovely little view of rice fields in the restaurant. Overall I think a little over priced

Lots of vegan and vegetarian options

I like this restaurant on Jaan Hannoman. One of the touristic streets. We were heading to KAFE (which I can also highly recommend) but it was closed because of a ceremony-day. Just a few steps further on rhe opposite site of the street we found Atman. A small shop front with a much larger seating area at the back. Even has a view of the rice fields!
Variety of dishes and vegan options. Good and tasty dishes. Even some icecream and cakes. Lovely and very helpful staff.

Pros: vegan options , Friendly staff , Few different vegan milks

Feels like you're eating in a store - service terrible

If you're looking for cheap food, then this is the place but that's about it. The food portions are very limited. Although they do have many vegan/vegetarian options, the taste of the food leaves much to be desired. The service is terrible. They have interesting seating and decor but you feel like you're eating in a store because there is merchandise all around you. The cafe was filled with backpackers. They had many vegan/vegetarian/gluten free options - but food was not that great! I wouldn't go back.

Pros: veg options

Cons: bad service, not so great ambiance

Nice vegan offer

The restaurant offers a broad vegan menu and lots of vegan treats. You can get relatively cheap food, except for the desserts, which are quite expensive. The staff was very friendly and the interior is cute.

Diverse menu

Restaurant with a very extensive menu. I came here on my first day in Ubud since I wanted to get acquainted with my surroundings and thought it was a safe choice. I was happy to see they did have some traditional plate, which is what I went for. Service was really slow and food lacked a bit of flavor in my opinion. All and all great vibe and place to lounge in.

Pros: Vegan options

Love this place

Since returning back home to the USA, this is one of the spots I truly miss. Super cute and relaxing. Love the vegan options and how everything tasted very fresh yet simple. Watermelon salad was my favorite. I miss Bali and all of the great lil places like this.

Pros: Lots of vegan options , Super cute and relaxing atmosphere , Healthy options

Cons: None

I don’t recommend

Our wait was way too long and the service was crappy. We ordered two green drinks and only got one. The wrap was basically sour cream and lettuce. The portion sizes are way too small for the cost. I highly recommend checking other places near by.

Pros: Cute environment , They sell lots of crystals

Cons: Too long of a wait , Small portion sizes for the cost, They messed up with our order twice

So leckeres Essen and ein sehr einladendes Ambiente!

Sehr gemütlich und schönes Ambiente.
Man wird wahrgenommen und fühlt sich sofort willkommen!
Das Essen ist wahnsinnig lecker.
Wir hatten 4 große indische Samosas mit coriander, chilli dip.
Und teilten uns die vegane Pizza 30cm.
Wir wurden mehr als satt und der Geschmack ist uns den Preis definitv wert! Würde es Freunden und Familie empfehlen! Ich persöhnlich finde die Philosophie "Essen für Jederman" (Fleischesser, Vegetarier, Veganer) schön. Essen soll verbinden und vlt probiert dann auch mal ein Fleischliebhaber etwas veganes und merkt wow...
Werden es nochmal besuchen und das Frühstück oder die Kuchen probieren.
Waren einfach zu voll für Dessert.

Pros: großzügige Portionen, viele vegane Optionen, schönes und gemütliches Ambiente., Waschbecken im Raum zum Hände waschen.

Best Avo on Toast

We came here for breakfast four times during our trip to ubud, the avo on toast is amazing, the bread is so thick and fresh! we also got the gluten free oatmeal mix that was delicious and kept me full all morning! Only small inside but service was friendly and quick and food was great.

They also offer take away which is great to grab and go like we did on the morning we flew home!

Pros: avo ov toast, quick service, great food

good options

The vegan food options are good, and tastes delicious. Costs more than local vegan food but definitely worth the visit if you are after a relaxing, quiet venue. This is a must visit on my trips to Ubud.

Over priced and bland food

This restaurant is pretty expensive and yet the food (falafel wrap) was very bland and dry. I've had way better food for half price in other restaurants. The drinks cost almost the same as the food.

Pros: Cosy and good service

Cons: Expensive

Vegan pizza!

Shared the regular size vegan pizza with my sister and it was okay. Thin crust and there could have been more filling though. The place is cosy and it seemed they had many vegan options.

Pros: Good food, Cosy place

Extensive menu but does have issues

They cook with white sugar which is not only unhealthy but means nothing tastes wholesome or good. Staff isn't knowledgeable about either the ingredients in the food served or the requirements of vegans, so requesting adaptations is difficult and risky. Service is pretty average - partly an English problem, partly an attitude issue... our waitress refused to admit she had made a mistake and wanted to charge us for something we hadn't ordered.

Pros: Large menu, claims to be organic

Cons: staff not trained well

Second visit, last visit

I visited this restaurant on my last visit to Ubud and it was great, however this time it was wrong in so many ways. The service was appalling, my dining partner got his food 25 minutes before mine. When mine came out - pad thai - it had egg all through it despite being a vegan dish, and when it came back it tasted like they had just washed the egg off. It was simply just rice noodles with lemon juice and some very scarce bean shoots. No peanuts, no tamarind. I was so sad as our first experience was great. Then the staff just laughed while they let the shop cat walk across our table and only shooed it away when some people next to us looked annoyed at having a cat lick their food. Maybe it was just an off night because it was low season? But really there are so many other good places to try in Ubud...

Pros: Jackfruit curry

Cons: Hygiene, Flavour, Messing up orders
