You know, we visit Bali every year, including a yearly visit to Sparkly. Why? Just because it offers a great atmosphere. My wife and daughters need to visit Sparkly: i join to advise and to pay the bill, which by the way is very reasonable all the time. The owner is a lovely lady and i am sure we will meet again next year. All the best to you!

Like home but then with great coffee!
I wouldn't call Sparkly a café, it's really more like a living room where you instantly feel home because of the comfort, simplicity and generous host. I always end up staying for a long time because of the atmosphere. Besides, I'm living in Ubud for 2 years now and never found quality Illy coffee like hers for that price anywhere around! Also stroll around a bit and check out the boutique, small but original and well priced.

i was recommended by fellow guests to drop in on Sparkly as she had the best and cheapest coffee they had found and i was not disappointed. Sparkly uses Illy and her coffee is delicious but meeting Sparkly herself was the highlight of this stop. her parents so aptly named her! but they could also have called her sweet thoughtful caring and been spoton! Sparkly has a little sign that reads (not verbatim) No! we don't have wifi, why don't you talk to eachother? i knew i liked this girl! i wondered around the shop filled with little treasures, bought a beautiful pair of earrings, concentric circles of a golden coloured metal until huge hoops were formed, and a candle poured into those charming silver embossed boxes. those with a coffee and i still had enough change from 100 000 Rp ( at todays exchange rate, about $9.50 ) to leave a tip. Sparkly took the time to inform me of a wedding ceremony that would be happening 10 min away, the next day, she wrote down all the information i would need to get there as well as what time i should arrive to ensure i got a table at a favourite cafe of hers to sit and watch the parade from. great coffee, gorgeous earrings, strawberry scented candle and meeting a lovely lady - so worth doing!!!!
