Cafesera is a good place for an all-round indonesian food. I have tasted quite a few and most are above average. Prices are reasonable and the place is clean. Ambience is quite homey.

I've visited Cafesera for several times. It's always a great place for first timers to Surabaya to sample local delicacies. The cafe gathered the best food vendors in town and serve un I ordered: Lontong Balap, Tahu Telor, Nasi Udang, Nasi Rawon, and drinks. Spent less than IDR200k ($16) ⭐⭐⭐⭐Taste 🌟🌟🌟🌟Food Quality 🌟🌟🌟🌟Food Presentation 🌟🌟🌟🌟Ambience $$ Price

This is a decent cafe in Surabaya. It has many, and I mean MANY, choices of food. You can order anything in this cafe and great service. But it is hot inside. So don't complain too much to the waiters.

I was here yesterday, for lunch. Walked from Santika Pandegiling Hotel and found the restaurant by chance. I ordered the tahu telor. It was drenched in peanut sauce. At first I felt apprehensive, but it was served hot, and the taste was well balanced. I finished it. Second was the day's special, Nasi Langgi. A platter served with rice, a... More

3rd time coming here, Cafesera has been a consistent 4 stars.. Great food variety, fairly priced, friendly service, and free Wi-Fi :) Couldn't give 5 stars as nothing extra stood out.. But I'll keep coming back :)

This restaurant sells a lot of choices of Indonesian food including snacks and desserts. Taste wise, I'd say it's good. Price is also decent (considering the location). I was there during lunch hour, it was packed up, very busy, and noisy. So if you wanna have a conversation, try to avoid meal time. It offers free wifi.

It's a cozy and comfie place to visit. Some times ago, the price of the food was fair with the taste. But last time I visited, they raised the price too high.

The variety of the food especially East Java style, was really great. The taste is very original, and I like it.
