Heading for Bali and need a plant-based checklist? Then add The Shady Shack to it now.

This Glowcation ticks every box for café design, plant-based food and ambiance. It’s the place you will want to spend all day at… every single day!


The setting

The Shady Shack is set in the heart of Canggu, a popular spot for tourists and expats in Bali. It’s also amongst all the fun clothing shops in Badung, so turn your day into an eating and shopping adventure!

The setting is everything you could imagine a stunning tropical shack to be…. but just ten times better.

Wooden panels, white high beam ceilings, pale blue shutters, huge open windows and greenery all around!


The little things

This Glowcation is all about sustainability and living an eco-friendly lifestyle. You will find metal straws, stainless steel water bottles, natural skincare products and coconut bowls for sale.

What I ate

I went for their protein bowl. The bowl was made up of a huge pile of colourful veggies…. talk about eating the rainbow! Charred corn on the cob, spinach, asparagus, broccoli, sweet potato wedges and a homemade tzatziki dressing to finish it all off. I also added in tempeh for an extra boost of protein too.

I couldn’t visit The Shady Shack and not try one of their famous raw vegan desserts.

These cakes are made fresh every single day. They’re free from dairy, gluten and refined sugar. I went for the chocolate almond caramel tart, which had a delicious nutty base, a sweet gooey centre and a rich chocolate topping…total bliss!

What else

If you’re looking for a sociable spot in Canggu to meet up with some friends, or perhaps even make some new friends, this is the perfect place.

It’s got such a warm, friendly and inviting atmosphere, you could easily end up spending all day there!

The bill

Bowl: 80k Rupiah
Chocolate Tart: 45k Rupiah


What made me glow

That chocolate caramel tart!

I had to go back the next day for another slice it was that good!
