What is a European Style Café?


In a European Style Café, you are welcome to come, relax, read, spend time with us at a leisurely pace. Have some coffee, try a pastry made in our kitchen and if time eats away from you then please stay for lunch!

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 dessert that’s 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, events, wine tastings 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.
