“Expensive coffee”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

good coffee, average food....not money for value and expensive coffee though its a coffee country but maybe the process to produce is coming from outside like many things here.

“Coffee Luwak”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2013

My husband is a coffee addict. He tried coffee luwak at several places in Indonesia and this was his favorite. The presentation was striking and he said the coffee itself was delicious. I'm not a big coffee drinker so I had the Kahlua Affogato which was delightfully decadent.
The only negative is that the cafe's location inside of the mall is hardly inspiring.

“Not in a good spot”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

Well, this is located inside the mall on the 1st floor and the mall itself is not that large. Not really good situation.

“A Chemistry of Coffee”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Try Kopi Luwak here. it's brewed in an apparatus which looks like a chemistry set which sets you thinking about the chemical process of how the coffee berries pass out of the civet cat's gut. Adds to the novelty of drinking the er... product of civet cat poop. Fragrant aroma and nothing disgusting about the taste once you get over the idea of where the grounds came from.
