Best coffee in town

They really live up to their motto " the best coffee in town". This is the place to go when u wanna get your coffee right in a town where 95 percent of the coffee served is not by international standard. Visit them for years every now and then and Blue lotus always get their coffee right. Service... read more

I remembered back then the first time i get here. I ordered cappucino and served quickly, less than 10 minutes. Come up with fit temperature, not make your lips swell. Taste just like Indonesian coffee bean rich in flavor and texture. The milk is frothed Delicate and enjoyable. I will definitely go back there again!

Staff very very friendly. Best Menu Nasi Goreng Bacon and Cold Brew! Trust me, is the best for mood booster. If you want steak, Cordon Blue very recommended!

A must for coffee lovers. Using their own coffee. They also have some specialty coffees like the cold brew. Definitely need to try!

I often come here with my partner, it's a really cozy place, you can eat, drink, and have a long conversation here comfortably. I really like the chicken cordon bleu, very delicious, love the side dish, the coffee is extraordinary. Last but not least, the cheesecake is definitely melt in my mouth.

Besides coffee, Blue Lotus Coffee House also serves food. I like steaks & roasted chicken. The gravy for both is rich and creamy. The meats are tender. For dessert I used to like apple pie, but in my last visit it's to shower, and the taste of cinnamon is weak. The atmosphere of the restaurant is very comfortable with nice... More

What a great escape for a foreign traveler! I found most Indonesian food not to be my favorite. On our second to last night we went here from a locals recommendation. Delicious! Lots of vegan/vegetarian options also. I probably won't ever be back in this past of the world again.... But if you are, definitely make the stop here.

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.
