In a city that has hundreds of great coffee shops, it’s imperative that if you’re opening a coffee shop you get the coffee right. It has to be world standard.
And right off the bat, a Warung Kopi Limarasa disappoints. My cappuccino was one dimensional, served in a kopitiam style cup and lacked depth. With a good coffee machine out the front, I had expected much better.I arrived here at just after 8 and there weren’t any other customers. So the staff were playing up a bit and shouting and laughing with each other in a playful, yet unprofessional way. It irked me.
I had a slice of banana bread which was very good, but I didn’t get a chance to try any of the heavy meals as we were told they weren’t available (probably because it was too early).Wifi clocks in at 16mbps down and 3mbps up. I can imagine this slows to a crawl in a full cafe, so you’ll have to make up your own mind as to whether you want to work here. But with so many great cafes in Bandung, I suggest having a look somewhere else first before deciding to set up a laptop here.For me, this is a disappointing coffee shop when compared to Bandung coffee shop standard in 2018. One saving grace is that it’s on the cheap side at Rp20.000 for a cappuccino.
