” Being lazy does not mean doing nothing, it means dedicating time to yourself, without the need to be productive.”
It’s pretty easy to slip into lazy mode once settled in a vintage chair, cooled by overhead fans that seem to spin at a sultry pace at Lazy Cats Cafe. A plate of tapas, with a chilled glass of wine completes the picture.
The word ‘salon’ comes to mind, albeit with a modern bohemian twist. An eclectic mix of furniture, oversized mirrors, raw ceilings and intriguing art are put together with creative flair.
Bags of coffee labelled Meow, Purr & Roar, cocktails named Drunken Cat and Tipsy Tiger, along with delivering the bill in a brass miniature old style bathtub are playful touches that put a smile on my face.
Vegetarians and vegans this is your place. Using locally grown produce, the food is fresh, with a healthy Mexican influence, ranging from breakfast bowls to tapas to tempeh burgers. It’s hard to walk past the devilish sweets displayed in the glass vitrine.
In keeping with the vibe, the food is artfully served.
I will confess that Lazy Cats is my destination when I’m in need of an ‘eggs and avo’ style breakfast. (All that’s missing is a newspaper).
Lazy Cats Café is the perfect place to take a break from the hum of Ubud.

If you love the food, the people, the vibe, check out Velvet, the latest creation by Tatjana (co-creator of Lazy Cats) and Chef Hiram. Think plush décor, deep red velvet curtains, shimmering chandeliers and late night vibes. My story of the opening night is here.
