What a fabulous cafe on the north side of town, away from the main tourism hustle and bustle. Great coffee and relaxed vibe.
As most of you will know, I’ve been reviewing a lot of cafes in Bandung in recent times, so I know what I like and what I don’t. It really is hit and miss. But this cafe hits the mark perfectly.Firstly, the interior is excellent. Because it’s located in a wide old house, you get a lovely wide window frontage which lets in a lot of light. It also means you get a different set up for the bar area than you would in Bandung. It’s different and I like it.There are plenty of tables to work from plus a lounge area. Wifi clocked in at 25mbps down and 5mbps up when I tested it out. It felt quite snappy and downloading the latest Game of Thrones episode would be a breeze.
I ordered a cappuccino and it was the best one I’ve had in Yogyakarta so far. It’s actually going to be difficult to beat, but that’s really just me saying that this is a top coffee whether it’s number 1, 2 or 3 on the ranking list.The almond croissant I had was a little disappointing. Bready and a little soggy. It was old school indonesian pastry at its mediocre best. The apple turnover was much better and had a bit of crispiness to it as well as great apple flavour inside. I sometimes wonder how one pastry can be so good and one so bad. Is it a matter of freshness? Not sure.All in all, a great little cafe to check out when you’re in Yogya.
