    Maarkeze by Ombe Kofie [ Thamrin, Kafe ]

    Coffee in a dept store!

    What I ordered:
    - Regular White (45k); It was quite pleasant, the beans that they use were home blend. It wasn’t too strong, but you can make it stronger by ordering Double White.
    - Cold Brew White (45k); Nice presentation, I can taste the sweetness/ the ‘fruity’-ness from the beans. But for a cold brew it wasn’t strong enough, I think the milk overwhelmed the taste of the coffee.

    Overall, if you’re looking for a quiet and calm place for hang out, you should go to this place. Especially if you’re into caffeinated drinks. The place itself isn’t big nor really ‘that’ gorgeous, but comfortable enough because of its location. And for the promo, they have Buy 1 get 1 every Mondays for Central member card holder and Buy 1 get 1 too every Tuesdays for G-card holder. Note that, there’s quota for the promo, so make sure you ask the barista first.

    Kong Djie Coffee Belitung [ Kelapa Gading, Kafe ]

    From Belitung to your neighborhood

    What I ordered:
    - Kopi Belitung; Coffee taste unique and authentic, really strong. It maybe not suitable for people who don’t really into coffee, but sure it will be appreciated by coffee enthusiasts.
    - Roti Susu; well it just bread and condense milk. It’s not any typical bread that you can buy in supermarket but it isn’t that special.
    - Half-cooke Egg; it wasn’t great. I know it’s just egg, but at least it has to be good, right?

    Overall, Kong Djie can be a delightful place for someone looking for breakfast. Also note that the place isn’t really that cozy. It’s a great idea to bring some specialities from other province to the neighbourhood. But in my opinion, they can do better.

    Braga Permai [ Braga, Indonesia,Barat,Belanda ]

    Nostalgia feels of Bandung

    What I ordered:
    - Ciabatta with Smoked Beef; it tastes really good, I really like the sauce, really recommended for this one.
    - Mushroom Omelette; It taste fine, nothing really special, but the avocado complement the dish really well.
    - Colenak; (it’s a traditional dish), made from fermented cassava topped with toasted coconut and brown sugar. For me, it tastes too sweet but overall good.

    Overall, if you want to experience Bandung in the old days, yes you should definitely come here. They serves great meals but also great service. What I love about the place is that you can enjoy your meals outdoor and watch peoples walk by the sidewalk of Braga Street. Also, for breakfast they serves tea, coffee, milk, and infused water as a complement (in buffet style actually). So yeah, this is one of my favorite breakfast spot in Bandung, and surely I’d come back here soon.

    The Coffee Consortium [ Pasir Kaliki, Kafe ]

    Minimalism at its best

    What I ordered:
    - Ice Latte (30k); Coffee wasn’t strong enough, I can’t taste the coffee beans that well. And for the portion of a latte, I think it’s too small.
    - Ice Mocha (32k); Yes you can taste the chocolate really well. But once again I can’t barely taste the coffee.

    Overall, I really like the concept of the place, the quietness and the minimalistic of it. Sure I really enjoying my time hangout in there. But sadly their coffees didn’t topped with my expectation. Would I come here again? I don’t know, because there’s nothing to be missed.

    Seeds Double Tree [ Kelapa Gading, Kafe ]

    Not so ‘double’

    What I ordered:
    - Ice Latte; I thought coffee was going to be ‘that’ good because the use of a fancy coffee machine, but it wasn’t. The coffee wasn’t strong enough, and the taste wasn’t really special. For the plus side, they have some unique collection of mugs that you can choose if you ordered a hot beverage.
    - Truffled French Fries; Tbh, this was a dissapointment. The portion was too small, taste like regular french fries, the size of the fries was too small for a cafe menu. I think I can made it myself at home (sorry to say).

    Overall, Seeds is a well-decorated place that only serves few items, which as I said ‘sounds professional’. But sadly it didn’t fulfill my expectations, Coffee wasn’t good enough, and Fries was a bad choice. Sure it’s a great place for hangouts but don’t expect me to come here in near future.

    Amyrea Art & Kitchen [ Kelapa Gading, Kafe ]

    A sense of “hominess”

    What I ordered:
    - Cappuccino (32k); it was great with unique coffee bean taste. Also, you can choose the intensity of the coffee; from light, medium, to strong. I chose Medium.
    - Salted Caramel Latte (40k); it wasn’t that “too sweet” taste, the salt is really a great addition to the caramel.
    - Red Velvet (35k); it wasn’t good enough. In my opinion it’s quite bland. Not enough sweetness for a red velvet.
    - Black tea (28k); serves in unique presentation and can be your delightful companion for doing works/ reading. But it’s not strong enough for black tea.

    Overall, Amyréa is a great place for hangouts with its cozy feelings. It serves good cup of coffee, not so much for the others. Yes I’d come here again for a cup of coffee, also to try their meals.

    Coffeegasm [ Kelapa Gading, Kafe ]

    That “gasm” feels

    What I ordered:
    - Ice Latte; Latte taste awesome with the right amount of bitterness from the coffee; usually when I ordered an ice latte it becomes quite bland but not for this one.
    - Butter Croissant; it tastes good but it did not meet my expectation. It’s not flaky enough for a croissant, more like bread consistency.
    - Almond Croissant; taste awesome with the right amount of sweetness and milky taste. Also this one smells really good (like for real) I can’t resist.
    .
    Overall, Coffeegasm is a great place for coffee addicts, it really does bring the ‘gasm’ feels. Cozy place and also quiet, really nice for doing works. It’s not that Instagram-able but sure it’s a nice place for hangouts. And yes, I’d come here again for craving that ‘gasm’ feels.

    Gormeteria [ Pasir Kaliki, Kafe ]

    Ala Gourmet

    What I ordered:
    - Bennedict; served in a unique presentation, it tastes really good. Egg was well poached, and hash brown complement the dish really well.
    - Ooo Crab; also great presentation, it’s a unique menu for breakfast. The soft-shelled crab taste really good and the salad balanced the dish really well.
    - Cappuccino; Coffee wasn’t really strong, but well consistency.
    - Americano; Tastes ok, nothing special.

    Overall, Gormeteria is really one of my favourite place. I really love the ambiance, and how they decorated their place. They serves their meals really well (ofc tasty), in addition of great service that really improves the dinning expirience. Pro-tip, come here for breakfast (7-10 am) and they’ll serves either hot cappuccino, americano, or tea for free as a compliment.

    Sejiwa Coffee [ Progo, Kafe ]

    Ensoul a soul, with food.

    What I ordered:
    - Pesto Pasta (40k); It tastes good, topped with fried basil leaf complement the pasta very well, but the pasta itself was quite oily.
    - Tropical Pitaya (40k); It was my first time ordering a smoothie bowl. I thought it was going to be ‘too much’ with the mix of banana and dragon fruit smoothie, but it wasn’t. Added with some sliced bananas, strawberries, grapes, dragon fruits , and also topped with mixed kinds of nuts and granolas, makes Tropical Pitaya taste quite perfect.

    Overall, I’d easily recommend someone to come to this place. With its minimalistic style venue combined with various kinds of delicious meals, Sejiwa is really a great spot. I didn’t try any of their coffees nor drinks, but surely I’ll comeback here sometime to try them.

    Two Cents [ Riau, Kafe ]

    “Take my Two Cents!”

    What I ordered:
    - Cold Brew, The Rock (29k); I really love the taste of the coffee beans, it taste quite strong but aslo unique. So far this is one of my favourite cold brew.
    - Milky Way (38k); Basically it’s just cold brew and milk. It also taste good, but if you really want to taste the coffee, go with the regular cold brew.

    Overall, Two Cents is a great place for working, reading, hangout, basically anything you want to do because the place is really cozy and relaxing. I also love that they serves their beverage in medium size (same size as grande size from starbucks), which is really worth it compared with other places. Yes of course I’ll come back here, craving for more cold brews.
