People from all over the world converge on Ubud, in the lush, green centre of Indonesia’s island of Bali for rest, rejuvenation and healing.
It is a arguably a global hub for new age, alternative health, yoga-practicing fanatics (Yes I’ll admit I’m prone to some super-food smoothies, a yoga class or two and maybe some crystal healing)
And after all that healing and meditation if you are after some health packed sustenance there are a any number of raw, organic, vegetarian, vegan eating options around town.
One of the more popular is Clear Cafe on Jl. Hanoman.

Clear has a great atmosphere. It is an unusual fusion of lounge “chill” and traditional Balinese – strange, but it seems to work, with an inviting atmosphere that keeps regulars coming back over and over. It has the appearance of being small and intimate with three sections, front back and upstairs. The staff are friendly and just attentive enough and the no shoes policy gives one a sense of being at home.
The menu is a work of art. While everything is amazing, the selection of delicious drinks, blended, juiced, frosted are a speciality. From mylk shakes – made with home made cashew milk to tonics and elixirs full of super-food, spices and herbs to purify the body and mind, to smoothies with fanciful names such as the Chaca Maca and Tropical Twister. Everything is an explosion of colour and taste.
There is no chicken, pork or red meat, but meals vary from raw, vegan, vegetarian, or fresh seafood brought in daily from Jimbaran Bay. The menu with its carefully thought out meals of salads, sandwiches, wraps, soups, curries, both local and from around the world was designed by Hollywood Chef Sarah Haugen.
Prices are reasonable, ranging from 25,000 Rp (around $2.50 AUD) to 35,000 Rp for drinks and 30,000Rp to 65,000 Rp for meals.
