A Must Visit if you are in Semarang!

This restaurant has been rated as high as No. 1 in the recent past. The owner must have a lot of friends! As a coffee shop, it's OK, but as a resto, the menu is limited and the taste not great. Stay away from the curry.

Food is good, especially the Nasi Goreng Bacon(!) :) staff is fast and friendly. When we were there there was some radio broadcasting going on which made the place really noizy. It is not very cheap.

We come here regularly for the great coffee and good food. Sat in the cafe now as I write this. It's late July and we are being entertained by a smooth jazz Christmas mixtape. Cute!
