A haven for surfers and digital nomads, Canggu is fast becoming known not only for its fantastic surfing waves and rice terraces but also for its gastronomic scene. This post contains a list of the best restaurants and cafes to eat in Bali’s most hipster place.
Where to eat in Canggu – The Shady Shack
One of my favorites, The Shady Shack is a restaurant that sits in a garden overlooking one of Canggu’s rice fields. Cool and popular, attracting both locals and visitors alike, it is a place where you can savor the finest vegan and vegetarian dishes found in Bali. The menu features colorful salads, nutrient-rich smoothie bowls, and very good desserts. When staying in Canggu, make sure to stop by.

Best Restaurants in Canggu – Peloton Supershop
Super famous in the social media for the plant-based concept, Peloton Supershop deserves the fame it has: in addition to the vibrant atmosphere and quality service, the menu is one of the best in Canggu.
All Peloton dishes are delicious, the smoothie bowls are among the best and prettiest in Bali, and the desserts are so good they do not even look like vegans.
If you want my recommendation, try Cashewtella, the vegan “Nutella” pie; The Penny Hot Dawg, with a “sausage” made of seitan; and, for the bowls, ask for the beautiful Blue Island Bowl, that is made with blue spirulina).
Address: Jl. Pantai Berawa No 46
Where to eat in Canggu – The Loft
Another lovable alternative to vegetarian food, The Loft is a restaurant hard to miss, with its mural written ‘You’ll see it when you believe it’ – one of the places to photograph in Bali. But the restaurant draws guests not only for the mural but also for the cool vibes and the menu, which offers the well-known Bali smoothie bowls, including an açaí one. If you want to try something rather unusual, check out the Vegan Nachos which are made with jackfruit and are surprisingly good.

Best Restaurants in Canggu – Nude
Nude is a restaurant in Canggu that appeals to different tastes, as it offers varied options, from light salads and vegetarian dishes to more robust meals, such as burgers and pasta.
They recognize that some days you want to be fit, but other days you can (and should) eat whatever you want. A great place for groups in Canggu, Nude is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

Best Restaurants in Canggu – Cafe Organic
Cafe Organic first opened its doors in Seminyak, and it worked so well that a second store was opened in Canggu. In a clear, tropical-decorated setting, you’ll be thoroughly pampered with a menu full of organic vegan and vegetarian meals, ranging from western dishes to Asian-inspired foods – one dish that surprised me positively was the Buffalo Cauli Wings.
Café Organic is one of the best Canggu cafes. Here, you can also just sit outside to sip a coffee while watching life going by in Bali.
Address: Jalan Pantai Batu Bolong No 58
Best Restaurants in Canggu – Parachute
One of the best restaurants in Canguu, Parachute is a place to relax and enjoy a more refined food, that can be served directly by the chef himself. The restaurant is a charming and sophisticated place in Canggu, but still in line with the sustainable and organic concept that prevails in the region and in Bali as a whole. In addition, both the restaurant and the vegetable garden are located under a parachute that is almost 20 meters high – hence the name Parachute.

Where to eat in Canggu – Nalu Bowls
One of Bali’s originals (started in 2014 in Seminyak), Nalu Bowls was one of the first to sell the smoothie bowls you must have seen on social media. After it, many others have emerged, but if you want to visit the pioneer, be sure to visit one of the units, being Canggu one of them.
Address: Jl. Batu Mejan No 88

A small place that is almost always full, Ruko Cafe is one of the best places for breakfast in Berawa, Canggu. So, come early! But if you can’t, they’re also open for lunch.
