Sure, nice food, nice place (i.e., nothing out of the ordinary though)....but not at those prices. Insane prices, especially the wine and beer. It could be the most expensive dinner we have had in Jakarta. Manager: this is not Singapore.

I love this place for eating solo (and bringing my laptop for work) or with friends. Their coffee is so good, and also is their food. My current fave is the ricotta pancake, which was soooo good 😋 will be back real soon!

The pastries are superior : The crackling bronzed outer crust; the flaky, gentle layers within, the scent of butter, and the deep flavor... (the chesee croissant is too intense for me though (too much cheese)), but it might be a plus for cheese lovers). And...More
