Best Cafes & Coffee Shops in Bandung 2022

A new year, a new year of cafe hopping in Bandung! For the past 2 years, I’ve been in Australia because of the pandemic. With much of the worst of the pandemic behind us, I’ve begun visiting Bandung’s best cafes and coffee shops and also reviewing them.

The format is different to what is was before. Now I’ll be writing shorter reviews followed by a couple of photos and updating this one post as the year goes on.

So please bookmark this page and come back to it regularly as I’ll be updating it as I visit new places.

28. By Taboo

I really don’t like the name of this place but I love everything else about it. The coffee is good and the space is wonderful — a full indoor/outdoor experience that is totally relaxing and full of fresh air. There are some good snacks here such as bao and plenty of places to set up a laptop. A great spot for working and nongkronging.Bandung Cafes By Taboo Drinks Bandung Cafes By Taboo Outside

27. Bodas

This is an expensive coffee by Bandung standards, but it’s also one of the better quality ones. Silky smooth milk, good temperature, nice cup — thoroughly enjoyable. Bodas is a large place with plenty of indoor and outdoor seating, electricity sockets everywhere, decent wifi. Non coffee options are bang on and the desserts are good too. An impressive cafe!Bandung Cafes Bodas Drinks Bandung Cafes Bodas Inside

26. Long Steady Distance

A very good value coffee in a modern, stylish building. There’s a cycling theme here and because of that, there is a 25% surcharge for non-cyclists. A great deal for cyclists, a terrible deal for everyone else. Despite this, it’s a good place to work with plenty of sockets, very fast wifi and comfortable chairs. Nongkrong juga boleh.Bandung Cafes Long Steady Distance Coffee Bandung Cafes Long Steady Distance Inside

25. Slovin

A wonderful tiny shop in an older part of town that still retains a lot of that old Bandung beauty. A peaceful outdoor area for about 10 people and a smaller indoor area. Drinks are unique with the iced coffee being more like a caramel milk and the mocktails sour and sweet at the same time. Absolutely delicious and worth a try if you’re looking for something a little bit different in Bandung. Not a place for work.Bandung Cafes Slovin Drinks Bandung Cafes Slovin Inside

24. Gandong

A compact nongkrong spot in the backyard of Gudeg Yu Nap, this coffee shop does a lot right. Sexy cups, good coffee, speedy wifi and plenty of trees. This is a decent place to work or nongkrong and is especially enjoyable under the shade of the trees. Another worthy addition to the Bandung cafe scene.Bandung Cafes Gandong Coffee Bandung Cafes Gandong Outside

23. Fuels Coffee

A cute little coffee shop on the bustling Jalan Sudirman. Coffee is very good, well-presented and served in Kaloka cups — yes! It’s little details such as this that can make the difference to a coffee shop and Fuels does this well. It’s not really a place to work, but there is an electricity socket and the wifi is reasonably fast.Bandung Cafes Fuels Coffee Drinks Bandung Cafes Fuels Coffee Inside

22. Jinji Slow Bar

Another small coffee shop busting out good drinks and a good vibe. It’s not a place to come and work for sure, but it’s a hit nongkrong place, especially on Saturday nights. Staff are friendly, there’s plenty of outdoor seating and the location is central.Bandung Cafes Jinji Slow Bar Drink Bandung Cafes Jinji Slow Bar Inside

21. Hamsa Coffee

A tiny coffee shop that has a cute front area for nongkronging. The coffee is excellent and served in decent cups. They serve fluffy donuts here that can be heated up and coated in palm sugar — delicious! Hamsa isn’t really the sort of place you come to work, but they do have wifi if you need it.Bandung Cafes Hamsa Coffee Bandung Cafes Hamsa Coffee Outside

20. Sawo Rontgen

A smallish place in a quiet, suburban setting, this new version of Sawo is beautifully designed. The coffee is very good and there is a small selection of pastries to keep you going. You could definitely get some work done here, but it’s just so damn peaceful that I’d rather just relax and take in the vibes.Bandung Cafes Sawo Rontgen Coffee And Pastry Bandung Cafes Sawo Rontgen Exterior

19. Fabula Social Space

Designed as a space to nongkrong, it really does a great job of providing a good outdoor space for meeting up with friends. The wifi here is the fastest I’ve used in Bandung, so of course working here is going to be easy. The coffee is good and the cheesecake worth a try. Come for the wifi, stay for the coffee.Bandung Cafes Fabula Social Space Coffee And Cake Bandung Cafes Fabula Social Space Exterior

18. Jiwan Coffee & Things

The “& Things” is a bit weird, but the cafe itself is beautifully designed with lots of wood and bamboo. There’s an eye for detail here and the Kaloka cups are just awesome. Coffee was very good, they offer oat milk, the wifi is fast and there are lots of electricity sockets. The only downside is the noise from Jalan Dago, but that won’t both most people. A very good spot offering something a little bit different.Bandung Cafes Jiwan Coffee And Cake Bandung Cafes Jiwan Upstairs

17. Hafa Warehouse

A huge, sprawling coffee shop in one of the old Dutch warehouses on Jalan Gudang Selatan. Not really my style of place, but will suit larger groups and families. Despite a quiet cafe, it took 30 minutes to get my coffee. Wifi is fast and plenty of space to work. Lots of fresh air outside and inside next to the massive windows.Bandung Cafes Hafa Warehouse Coffee And Tea Bandung Cafes Hafa Warehouse Interior

16. Kasumba Coffee

A new place in an area with lots of coffee shops. There’s a whole section dedicated to tea which is refreshing and the coffee here is good. Lots of places to work, plenty of sockets and the wifi is very fast. I wasn’t too impressed with the interior and there is quite a bit of work to do to get this to a good standard. The best bet is to take a seat out the front.Bandung Cafes Kasumba Coffee Bandung Cafes Kasumba Exterior

15. The Kamasan

A decent spot near the Saparua running track, this place does good coffee in stylish cups and good snacks. They participate in “pagi ngopi”, so the coffee + kaya bun for 20k is a steal. There’s plenty of outdoor seating and the wifi is fairly fast. A decent nongkrong and work spot.Bandung Cafes The Kamasan Coffee And Tea Bandung Cafes The Kamasan Exterior

14. Tri Tangtu Kopi Roasters (TTKR)

A tiny little cafe specialising in manual brew coffee and bread. It’s an odd combination, but it works perfectly well here. The coffee is smooth and the bread soft and fluffy with a slight crisp on the outside. The courtyard area can only seat fewer than 10 people, so be prepared to wait for a seat here. Something a little bit different on the Bandung coffee scene and well worth a try.Bandung Cafes TTKR Bread And Coffee Bandung Cafes TTKR Exterior

13. Kopi Mandja Progo

A stylish cafe with plenty of outdoor seating and coffee for Rp10.000 until 10am. The coffee was hot, strong and absolutely delicious and the topical matcha was awesome. There are plenty of places to work here and the wifi is fast. All in all a good all round cafe for work, nongkrong or simply just enjoying a coffee.Bandung Cafes Kopi Mandja Coffee Bandung Cafes Kopi Mandja Interior

12. Kumari

Enjoyable coffee, good quality cakes, interesting non-coffee options and a fabulous interior make Kumari a winner on the Bandung cafe scene. The wifi is disappointingly slow, but despite that, this cafe is a very pleasant place to work. Staff here are very helpful. I especially love the indoor/outdoor feel of this place. Definitely worth a visit.Bandung Cafes Kumari Coffee And Food Bandung Cafes Kumari Inside

A super impressive coffee shop with a menu that suits the Indonesian tongue. Coffee is excellent, love the cups, lontong sayur is worth coming for on its own. Lots of places to work, electricity sockets everywhere and super fast wifi. It’s a great work space, nongkrong spot and place to have a coffee and bite to eat. Love it.Bandung Cafes Jati Kopi Coffee And Food Bandung Cafes Jati Kopi Outside

9. Kyomi Space

Very popular with the young, artsy crowd, Kyomi Space is a cafe and art space set inside an old house in a gang off the main road. There’s a little bit of Japanese inspiration here and the open windows allow a fabulous breeze to blow through. Plenty of people open their laptops here and it’s a pleasant place to work. The coffee is good, but when we were there all cold drinks and most snacks were unavailable. A likeable cafe with a few shortcomings.Bandung Cafes Kyomi Space Coffee Bandung Cafes Kyomi Spade Outdoor

8. Kanoko Coffee

A small air conditioned glass house with balcony and a raised outdoor area are what greet you at Kanoko. It’s beautifully designed and very relaxing. The coffee here is punchy and dark, perfect for an early morning pick-me-up. There are plenty of electricity sockets here and the wifi is fast. Combined with a chilled atmosphere, this is a top spot to come and open up a laptop. Love this place.Bandung Cafes Kanoko Coffee Bandung Cafes Kanoko Indoor

7. Eighteen Coffee

An absolutely massive concrete space painted in bright white. On a sunny day, it’s too bright for me. The coffee was OK and there is a large cafe menu on offer. There are lots places to work here, but it’s not really that sort of place. It’s more of a place for large families to come on weekends for a meal rather than a work or nongkrong spot.Bandung Cafes 18 Coffee Bandung Cafes 18 Coffee Outdoor

6. Kilogram

Another cafe with a beautiful shaded outdoor area. The coffee here is bang on and there’s an extensive food menu. The wifi wasn’t too fast when we tried it, but there are plenty of great seats to nongkrong in over the course of an hour or two. Didn’t see any sockets. A super relaxing space.Bandung Cafes Kilogram Coffee Bandung Cafes Kilogram Outdoor

5. Habitaas

More of a place to hang out with friends than a place to work, Habitaas impresses with its fantastic outdoor area and tasty food. The food and drinks are so good here that it’s worth going out of your way for. The menu is different from many in Bandung and the beef sandwich is a winner (good bread!). Definitely worth a visit and give the avocado coffee a try.Bandung Cafes Habitaas Avocado Coffee Bandung Cafes Habitaas Outdoor

The soft and fluffy Japanese pancakes here are the speciality and are worth coming for alone. The coffee is not the best in Bandung, but it’s definitely good enough if you’re in need of some caffeine. The wifi here is fast and you could easily spend a few hours here working.

3. Two Cents (new shop)

Hidden down a small gang, this popular cafe immediately impresses when it comes into full view. Another old building in Bandung tastefully transformed into a cafe with a lot of outdoor seating. It’s a far cry from the original Two Cents and thankfully the coffee is still good. Lots of places to work, but wifi can be slow.Bandung Cafes Two Cents Coffee Bandung Cafes Two Cents Outdoor

1. Naked Brown

Trepidation about the name of this place is quickly wiped away when you see the modern fitout and lots of outdoor seating. When the coffee arrives, you realise that the coffee is a very high standard with perfectly textured milk and great temperature. The hot hojicha is a winner as well.Bandung Cafes Naked Brown Coffee Bandung Cafes Naked Brown Indoor
