“Too small for comfort”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2014

A nice place with a great idea. If only there is more room and more service staff. It gets very busy in the weekend. I've been here once and I wanted to try this place again but was repelled several times due the queue.

“EXCELLENT: From the coffee to the food via the fresh fruit juices! Amazing service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

My wife and I go to this little cozy cafe, about once a month (I am bule and she is Indonesian).

The food is excellent, we've tried several items on the menu (which is written on the wall) and loved each and every one of them.

The coffee (especially both iced and hot cappuccino) is to die for. Delicious!

The staff is very nice and super responsive. The kitchen is very fast (even when the place is full), and yet everything tasted superb.

If you're alone, bring a book, order a coffee and just relax, it is the perfect place for that!

“Best coffee shop around Kemang Area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013

If you love good coffee, healthy food and mature surroundings, this is a good place to hang out. My favorite is the Wamena coffee and the Big Breakfast after my 10K run or Bikram Yoga. There is no reservation and it is often full so be prepared to queue on the weekends.

“Only if you have to due to convenient location”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013

Location is great. Pop in before your grocery shop as it's next to hero groceries.. It's got a tiny outdoor seating area and cramped indoors. That's fine. However service is always always slow and the food is not consistent. We just had the oiliest soggiest croissants and it took them 45 minutes to bring them out! Another 15 minutes to bring mini pancakes out. It's not a destination cafe but one of convenience. Don't go out of your way to come here. Also pricey for what you get! Amigos upstairs is a better bet.
