Stumbled across clear cafe in 2016 and loved the food and atmosphere. Found it again this year. Food beautiful, presentation lovely, taste sensation. Favourite cafe in Ubud.

A must-see Ubud spot for a great lunch.
Clear cafe just continues to get better over the years. The latest renovation now includes a day spa. Great drinks, good food and always reasonable prices make this place a go-to spot for locals and tourists alike.

Conveniently located, a lot of variety, so-so service
We came during the low season, so we had no trouble getting a table (from reading reviews, this is a problem sometimes?). I ordered a 'strawberry mylk shake' and a falafel pita, and my partner ordered a 'chocolate town milk shake’ and, forgive me, I've forgotten what he had for lunch. Our orders came reasonably quickly and we enjoyed our meals. However, we asked for the bill a couple of times, and even though there were what seemed to be a lot of wait staff, we still had to wait quite a long time to get it, and then had to wait again for them to come back to collect it and then to bring back the change. We’ve both worked in hospitality, and from the way the wait staff were all crowded around the till, we figured something had gone wrong and they were sorting it out. Which is fine, it happens, but we did have to wait a long time. Obviously, this wasn't enough to put us off, because we came back a second time for drinks (the drink selection is huge), this time going straight to the till to pay. It's a beautifully designed space, but it felt a bit crowded upstairs compared to the more open space downstairs, due to a combination of big chairs and lots of tables placed quite close together. Even though Clear Cafe is centrally located, the design and greenery give you a bit of distance from the road. I also really appreciate that there are cotton hand towels instead of paper towels at the sinks (which are individually rolled up on shelves for you to use and then are collected in a basket and washed). Overall, I would recommend Clear Cafe for the atmosphere and great variety of offerings, but maybe not if you’re in a rush to go anywhere afterwards.
