The food is pretty good and the portions are generous, the chicken with pepper was not bad in my case. The prices are slightly higher than the average around. Its not really central but the atmosphere is nice.

Called in here while wandering Penestanan and ordered an Avocado smoothie. A little pricey compared to some places (IDR51.975) and admittedly, not the best I've tasted. It was nice to see they had a donation box for displaced people as a result of Mt Agung.

Since we were staying very close to Vespa we frequently visited it for breakfast mostly before leaving out for the day.The coffee is great and so is the tea.The cheese n mushroom omelette was delicious too.Must drop in if you are in Ubud.

We visit every day when staying in Penestenan. Always a warm welcome and great coffee and food. Good to see that they keep dogs out as well.

Good food, cozy atmosphere, great location, WiFi works well. I have eaten here many times trying various things on the menu and so far the falafel wrap is my favorite.

I went there 2 times during my last stay in Bali and really enjoyed the place. They serve good food and the service is great. I love their burgers and I tried a carrot cake, really fresh. If you are looking for calm, go there...More

Small cozy place with reasonable price. You won't regret. Well said, will be easier if you come with scooter, because the car park is quite challenging. Overall, it was made my lunch time perfect!

We visited Cafe Vespa a few times during our week-long stay in Ubud, it was that good, and tried it for coffee and cake, breakfast and twice for dinner. The cafe is small and we sat up the front and caught the breeze from outside,...More

Really cosy surrounds with plenty of seating options for different group sizes. The pumpkin dosa is delicious (when fresh) and the turmeric jamu is also divine. However, we found the freshness and quality of the food a bit hit and miss. Our first visit was...More

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.
