Entering Cafe Wayan off bustling Monkey Forest Road today, you will find yourself within tranquil gardens with pavilions amongst lotus ponds. Offering traditional Balinese, Indonesian and western dishes
along with fresh baked breads and desserts from our bakery, guests have come to enjoy our relaxed atmosphere for over 20 years.
Our story goes back to 1980 when Ibu Wayan had a small warung - a little bamboo hut of a food stall. Ibu Wayan sold coffee to the rice farmers and made black rice pudding on what is now Monkey Forest Road.
Ibu means "mother" in Indonesian and she has always loved to cook sharing her joy for food. As more tourists began to visit, Café Wayan officially opened with six tables in 1986 along with two simple guest bungalows. Ibu was keen to learn about food from different cultures from many friends who came to stay, so the menu expanded to include western dishes so long-term visitors would not miss their own food.
Ibu’s husband Ketut, a traditional artist, began expanding the gardens and designing the Alam Indah family accomodations. See more below and on our Photo Gallery.
In 2014, Cafe Wayan celebrated 28 years!
We have been so happy to welcome guests to experience our Balinese hospitality.
Our Menu includes Indonesian and Balinese food, Thai-style Curries,
a wide range of Western dishes and seafood including a specialty, Prawns ala Ketut.
Pasta and Pizza, Fresh Salads and Vegetarian selections.
Daily Specials and Heavenly Home-Made Desserts that go beyond Death by Chocolate Cake!
Sunday evenings we offer a Traditional Balinese Buffet so you can enjoy the variety of flavours
of our food along with Bali tinglik music in our garden.
Balinese Smoked Duck or Indonesian Rijstafel may be ordered for any day with 24 hours 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."
