Ubud organic restaurant Clear Cafe
From the street it’s obvious that Ubud organic restaurant Clear Cafe is a very different, special, Ubud experience. The pile of shoes at the entrance enhances this feeling.
At the end of 2014 Clear Cafe burned to the ground, along with its surrounding houses and temples. As of March 2015 they moved to temporary premises and in 2017 moved back to the original premises which are stunning – sorry, no new pics.

Entering Ubud organic restaurant Clear Cafe it’s clear someone had a lot of fun designing this. A stunning mix of furnishings and the low-key chilled music give this restaurant a super chic feel.
The clientele is basically European local expats, mostly yogis and healthy types.
The menu intro of popular Ubud and Bali visitor Michael Franti (World renowned reggae and social activist band, Spearhead’s lead… plus human rights activist who performs at Bali Spirit festival and who also owns a retreat centre in Bali.) talks about the ‘breathtakingly chic décor’.
Food here is surprisingly cheap, with a very nice fish curry for 60k plus plus, which in similar places (there aren’t any!) in Seminyak would be double the price.
There are also some Japanese-style low tables in the rear for those who like the Zen dining feeling, or who just prefer sitting on cushions. while upstairs is big with many tables and chairs, perfect for a function.
A page on the menu showing the local sources of many ingredients is cool too.
Like Ubud restaurant Locavore (where I had been for lunch on the same day) Ubud organic restaurant Clear Cafe seems to have a local and organic food intention, and so supports the local economy as well as the health of its patrons.
See the photo of the menu and many other aspects of Clear Cafe at the bottom of this page.
The menu has lots of iced teas, tonics, elixirs, frosty drinks and blended juices.
There is a very nice looking breakfast menu which I includes raw sprouted granola, oats, muesli, tofu scramble, plus lots of egg dishes and buttermilk pancakes. Sandwiches and wraps include tempeh, snapper, tofu and tuna fillings.
Delicious looking small plates plus some delectable salads including goats’ cheese, Caesar and a brilliantly named, Rabbits Paradise.
There is a basic choice of Indonesian, Thai, Indian and Mexican dishes along with seafood, pasta plus an eclectic grouping of chef’s favourites.
The feeling I get, and also from the clientele, is that this is quite a special place.
I had the Sunshine Tung; seared black pepper tuna with wasabi mashed potatoes in a sweet tamarind sauce. Delicious. See the photos below.
A raw and macrobiotic section rounds off the menu including pizza soups salads.
A fun and healthy kids menu make this great for kids.
No alcoholic drinks on the menu feels radical but refreshing. I saw one woman drinking wine so I guess BYO is possible.
It was busy, even when most other restaurants were quite empty so clearly Ubud restaurant Clear Cafe is popular. In busy season maybe book ahead.
Quite a few people with laptops taking advantage of the gorgeous vibe and ambience.
No smoking also makes for a fresh atmosphere.
Clear Cafe is a gorgeous Ubud restaurant, a demo of the ‘new Ubud’.
I visited again in November 2014 and saw they now have a little deli next door full of tasty and organic delights.
