The Shady Shack

Kuta, Ubud

The Shady Shack


This little sanctuary, a personal favorite, is located in Kuta. The cafe is right across rice patty fields and though you are only minutes away from the busy Batu Blong, it feels like you are far away from everything. The menu offers an eclectic choice of vegetarian and vegan food and outstanding vegan treats. The Hallumi Salad bowl and Shack Attack burger are my top choices, but honestly there is not a single meal on that menu that won’t fill you up and make you feel good.

Price Range: $3 – $12
Best For: Healthy Salads, Meatless Burgers & Vegan Deserts
