If you live nearby, you can go without a doubt. It's a small place, can seat maybe 30 pax and they also do take away. They serve a variety of comfort and casual food, from breakfast to dinner with decent selection of western and local...More

It’s a pity when small businesses like this Cafe Vespa do not keep a eye on the prize... which is trade. IMHO the food here is unappetising and stale. I visited 3 times during my stay in Sayan and wished I had spent my $...More

I came here for a late lunch and had the snapper fish and chips. The pic does not do it justice as I was at a darker table, but it was very good! Light and flaky and not greasy. The portion was perfect. I also...More

My friends and I came here one morning for a brunch as we had not eaten much the night before. It has local foods which are really good when you try them.

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.
