General & Co., Bandung – Great Concept, Disappointing Execution

If there is one thing that turns me off a cafe more than anything else, it’s when I’m served a spilt coffee. I get it. Everyone makes mistakes. But when the entire side of your cup is covered in coffee and the base is swimming in a pool of it, it’s just unacceptable. And that’s what I was served at General & Co.

The coffee itself tasted ok and the price was great, but food is as much about visuals and environment as it is flavour. So I just cannot like this coffee. Big thumbs down. Sorry guys.General & Co. spilt coffeeWe also tried a beef and cheese sandwich as well as bistik oma. Both dishes were better than expected after the coffee incident. The bistik oma with plenty of vegetables and a decent amount of meat for the price. Flavour was good too.General & Co. beef and riceThe fitout of the cafe is quite nice with a large open air area with plenty of tables for nongkronging with your friends.General & Co.
