I love this cafe located at the old part of Jakarta. A few steps from Wayang Museum. The food is good so is the warm hospitality of the staff. I enjoyed taking pics coz it feels like going back in time of speakeasy and glamour....More

Nice service, nice design, good music, but there is nothing special with the drinks. My family ordered hazelnut coffee, vanilla coffee. Maybe, it's not the favorite drink here. The Poffertjes is good though.More

Very charming establishment in the heart of Kota Tua. It gives you an idea of what the area had looked like in its prime. A little pricey for what it is, but as expected as this is a touristy spot. Great view of the square.
