If you are someone who is gluten free, grain free, vegan, vegetarian or have any other food sensitivity, then Ubud is the place for you to visit! Whether you want a quick, casual meal or a meal that is a bit fancier, we have found a number of different places for you to eat.
As many of you may know, Mrs. Traveling Honeymooner has Celiac Disease and can not, under any circumstances, eat gluten. At home, Mrs. Traveling Honeymooner follows the Autoimmune Protocol Diet (a version of Paleo) to stay healthy. However, when we travel, adhering to AIP can be a difficult task. We have compiled a list of restaurants that we visited during our stay in Ubud, that went above and beyond to accommodate Mrs. Traveling Honeymooners gluten free, dairy free lifestyle and still satisfy Mr. Traveling Honeymooners gluten-full lifestyle.
This was our favorite restaurant in Ubud! While it falls on the pricey side, the views, service and the food really make it worth the money. The restaurant overlooks the creek and is surrounded by the forest which makes this spot extra romantic. We started the night off with the Nori wraps which were some of the best Nori wraps we have ever had. Mr. Traveling Honeymoon ordered the Herbed Grilled Chicken and Mrs. Traveling Honeymooner ordered the Wild Mushroom and Polenta dish. Both dishes were fantastic.

As you can probably decipher from the name, this is a crepe place. They serve galletes which are savory crepes and they also serve sweet crepes. We stuck with the savory version because we were starving after a long day of exploring. The best part about this restaurant is they can accommodate almost ANY food restriction. They have vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, etc. They also have three different types of batters. I chose to order a coconut flour gallete with mixed Balinese veggies. It was delicious! Mr. Honeymooner ordered a non gluten free gallete with tomato sauce, cheese and mushrooms and he loved his too! If we weren’t stuffed, we would have ordered a sweet crepe but we did not have anymore room in our bellies.
Location: Creperie is located off the main road and is between Seeds of Life Cafe ( JI Gootama No. 2, Ubud 80571) and Warung Biahbiah (JI Gootama No. 13 Padantegal Kaja, Ubud). We could not find the exact address of Creperie because they do not have the address listed anywhere. However, it is not a difficult place to find because it is right off the main road.
Seeds of Life Cafe
Seeds of Life is a quaint raw food cafe and yoga studio. The vibe is relaxing and everyone that works there is very friendly and helpful. Best of all, EVERYTHING on the menu is Gluten free! They serve entrees’s, desserts and coffee! During our stay in Ubud, we visited Seeds of Life almost every day. Yes, we love this place, especially their desserts! We ordered everything that had chocolate in it because Mr. Honeymooner has an obssesion with it. We also ordered their oreo cheesecake and a few other tarts. It is amazing that we didn’t gain 100 pounds during our visit.

We stumbled upon this place while walking down the main road, and we are so glad we did! They have delicious traditional Balinese food for dirt cheap! We ordered two bottles of water, two appetizers and two entrees which turned came to the grand total of $5. The atmosphere is fun and exciting and the staff was extremely helpful when trying to order food that was gluten free!

Alchemy is another delicious raw food cafe and is much bigger than Seeds of Life with a more modern feel to it. The prices are also a bit more than Seeds of Life but their selection is also much larger. For an entree and two desserts we paid about $19, whereas we paid about $7-$8 for the same amount of food at Seeds of Life Cafe. Mrs. Traveling Honeymooner’s favorite dessert was the mint pie and Mr. Honeymoon’s favorite dessert was the mocha chocolate cheesecake. The salad bar was also huge and of course, very yummy!

Cafe Wayan & Bakery
You may recognize the name of this restaurant from the book or movie “Eat, Pray, Love”. Cafe Wayan is located right across the street from Komaneka at Monkey Forest where we stayed so it was very convenient for us. Even if it wasn’t close, we would still have made it a point to visit this place! Cafe Wayan is one of the largest restaurants we visited but the service was still fantastic, as was the food. They also have gluten free apple tarts and ice cream which we were not able to try because we were too stuffed.

We hope you enjoy these restaurants as much as we did!
