Welcome to Clouds
Welcome to Clouds where we strive to provide a unique experience in everything we do.
Dear Clouds lovers,
Due to the challenges brought on by the national workforce shortage, we have decided to pause our open hours until further notice.
Quality and customer service are key values here at Clouds, therefore we will take this time to create a strong team that can continue providing these values to our loyal patrons and new guests.
During this period, Clouds will remain open for Private Events, Wine Nights, Exclusive Brunch, Exclusive Dinners and Themed Parties. Please reach out if you are interested in hosting a private event.
We look forward to reopening and welcoming you… 100 feet above.
European atmosphere... 100 feet above
Influenced by European Style Café’s, Clouds offers an experience that is unlike any other in Ames, Iowa. Our atmosphere embraces lounging and coziness to make any visitor feel right at home. Our mission is to provide an environment as an island away from the busyness of life, to relax, and enjoy the present moment. Here at Clouds, we believe in specialty coffee that supports a local non-profit, Café El Zapote, and fresh European style dishes and desserts. Since our beginning in the Fall of 2019, Clouds has taken a huge step to provide visitors more of the Clouds experience.
Clouds' has a number of items on the all-day menu kept to the essentials in order to ensure quality products. Clouds' has a selection of pastries and desserts that are freshly baked every day to sweeten your European experience. At Clouds, we master the art of chocolate/confectionery/bakery to offer an assortment of traditional European sweets and gifts to take home. We offer exclusive themed dinners, brunch, wine tastings and cooking workshops that will take you out of Ames and place you somewhere around the world! Our experience and products are unmatched and can be enjoyed with a spectacular view of campus from 100 feet above.
