We were staying at the Manohara hotel in Borobudur and randomly popped into this cafe while exploring the town outside the temple. We were very glad we did. The decor and atmosphere is relaxed and tasteful; Maya is an excellent host: the beers were cold, the coffee delicious, and the smoothies and food too. In a town that at first appearances seems to have little to do, Maya was able to provide a whole lot of tips for good places to check out in the local area, including the local tobacco farms and villages.
So if you are visiting Borobudur, make sure to swing past Paksi. It has to be one of the most relaxed and friendly cafes ever, and is a great place to learn about the local area. Maya even lent us her moped without charging a penny to let us explore - much to her regret, I'm sure, as we managed to crash it on a particularly steep hill!
Maya - thank you so much for your hospitality and patience!
