Toddler-friendly cafe review: Clear Cafe, Ubud

Clear Cafe's unique entrance way is eye catching.

Clear Cafe, Ubud - 'Clean food for clear minds'

No. 8 Jalan Hanoman, Ubud, Gianyar, Bali


Clear CafeUbud is one of the funkiest little cafes I've visited... I think probably ever. Just the entrance alone has people stopping to take Instagram photos, and it only gets more incredible inside, with lush green gardens, trendy decor and cool gimmicks like the fireman's pole that connects the ground floor with the first level (make sure to keep your toddlers away if they're not risk-adverse!).

Clear Cafe passes almost all of our toddler-friendly criteria (you can read our review here) , but if you're curious, here's a photo tour of what you'll find inside the mysterious circular doors.

The beautiful walled garden right next to the open air dining space on the ground floor.

The staircase to the first floor is one of the coolest I've seen, and behind it you can see another space, mostly filled with 'laptopers'. 😉

View of the lush garden from the spiral staircase.

The bridge across to another section on the first floor. Leo loved running along it, and it was fairly safe until he almost ran off the edge of the fireman's pole gap on the other side! Watch your runaway toddlers here!

Once they're strapped in the high chair, you can relax! Leo enjoyed the hummus and veggie tasting plate.

We ordered the Majestic Mushrooms, Blackened fish tacos and Mesopotamia falafel board. All tasted and looked amazing!

The Mesopotamia platter was a middle-eastern feast!

And as I mentioned, the menus were extensive! There were 4 pages I didn't photograph.

We visited during Galungan Day (the first of a 10 day Hindu festival) and loved the little message on the stairs.

Have you been to Clear Cafe? What did you think?
