When you first see Vespa, you're charmed. Then you go in and the first thing that strikes you is a display case full of delightful desserts. Not what you'd expect to see in a village on the outskirts of Ubud. You read the menu with...More

Cafe Vespa has a peaceful, relaxed atmosphere, being a short (but steep) walk up the hill away from the main road and tourist shops, on a mostly pedestrian pathway. Customers worked quietly on their laptops, or spoke earnestly in small groups. The decor is funky,...More

Loved this cafe, particularly enjoyed the pumpkin/dosa meal and the big bowl salad. Lots of delicious vegan and vegetarian options for one of our group.

We had the yoghurt curry and the Vespa burger as well as the chocolate delight dessert. The curry wasn't spicy as stared on the menu but delicious. The burger could have been a little more seasoned as well but all in all it was a...More

Good range of food for a quick lunch, friendly service, nice and comfortable place. One of the best coffees you'll find in Ubud and Bali (white dog).

In December 2011, after the renovation of a disused picture gallery in the small village of Penestanan Kaja, near Ubud, Bali, Cafe Vespa opened its doors to the general public.The space could be described as small, unintimidating and relaxing, with friendly and efficient staff. Our in-house bakery provides fresh bread, croissants and cakes, with the kitchen also cooking up a varied breakfast, lunch and dinner menu. Cafe Vespa prides itself, in what we believe to be one of the best coffees in Bali. We describe it as a velvety, full-bodied, artisan style coffee, prevalent in cafes from London to Australia.Our own 100% Arabica blend of Indonesian Toraja, Aceh Gao and Bali Kintamani is roasted to our specifications and delivered freshly roasted to us each week. For additional freshness each cup is freshly ground and served with the best quality milk.For those who do not do coffee, Vespa also has one of the best choices of teas, both healthy and classic.For the fruit and veggie drinkers there's a great range of sugar and ice-free juices.From a cultural standpoint Cafe Vespa not only provides great food and beverages but also serves as a centre for social interaction: the cafe gives visitors a place to congregate, talk, write, read, entertain one another, or pass the time on an ipad. The WiFi is also pretty good.
