Welcome to Clouds 

Welcome to Clouds where we strive to provide a unique experience in everything we do.

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.
