Going Local in Ubud!
Brand new and already making a splash, Localista is the place to get great espresso coffee and a mouth-watering selection of cupcakes. If cappuccino isn’t your thing, there is a selection of special teas, juices and lassies, quiches and croissants, and legendary Gaya gelato.
Located just off the main road of Ubud, the café connects to the Rio Helmi Photo Gallery. The brainchild of photographer Rio Helmi and his film-maker daughter Soma, Localista is definitely the new kid to watch on this block.
As you might guess from its name, the motto for this cute little café is, well, “Go Local”. A lot of emphasis is put on sourcing and using as much local product as possible. Says Rio: “It not only makes sense in terms of the environment, it even tastes better!”
The café already has a name for its cupcakes: one visiting celebrity walked off with a whole box of special gluten free cupcakes after trying them!
