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!

Strong fragrance and leave a special after taste in my mouth.. Barista and also the owner is very skillful, kind, and have lots of information everything about coffee that u never heard before.. Simply the best spot in town..

Great coffee, skilled and attentive staff, good food, reasonable prices - what's not to like? It offers a relatively short menu of food and drinks, but that keeps the standard high. Sit up at tables or relax on the sofas. Free wi-fi. Highly recommended.

Better than Starbucks for sure and just a surprising coffee shop in a city like Semarang. Even Surabaya does not have this.

If you are a coffee lover, this is the place to be. Great choice and the Italian coffeemaker makes sure that you taste the difference. Try the cheesecake and get hooked. The coffee house also carries a nice selection of magazines so even if you come alone you wont get bored.
