Cafe Wayan

Monkey Forest Road, Ubud-Bali
                                     since 1986

Where it all began
Cafe Wayan started as a small warung - a little bamboo hut of a food stall where Ibu Wayan sold coffee to the rice farmers and made black rice pudding  on what is now Monkey Forest Road. Ibu also means "mother" and she has always loved to cook. As more tourists began to visit, Ibu was also keen to learn about food from different cultures as well.
Since 1986 many visitors have come to enjoy her food and the atmosphere of Cafe Wayan.  Ibu’s husband Ketut, a traditional artist, began designing the gardens and the Alam Indah family accomodations.

Entering Cafe Wayan from bustling Monkey Forest Road today, you will find yourself within our tranquil gardens with seating in pavilions amongst lotus ponds.
 Our menu includes Indonesian food, Balinese and Thai-style Curries,
a wide range of Western dishes and Seafood including our specialty Prawns ala Ketut.
Fresh Salads and Vegetarian selections.
Daily Specials and Heavenly Home-Made Desserts
that go beyond Death by Chocolate Cake!

Traditional Balinese Food is prepared mostly for ceremonial occasions and requires much preparation. On Sunday evenings
we offer a Traditional Balinese Buffet for you to enjoy the variety of flavours of our food.
Balinese Smoked Duck
or Indonesian Rijstafel may be ordered for any day with 24hours advance notice.

“Our favorite spot in Ubud was Café Wayan on Monkey Forest Road with its bakery in front, its little rooms out back that overlooks a rice-paddy, and its gracious hostess Wayan. Her menu ranges from shrimp with snow peas, cashews and spices, to traditional smoked duck, which must be ordered 24 hours in advance.
Wayan takes pride in pleasing people who are long time missing their food also with her home-made breads and Death by Chocolate Cake."
