Please Please Please is a place which has been crazy popular for a couple of years now especially on weekends when hordes of Jakartans descend on the cafe.
So of course we just had to try it out to see if lives up to the hype. And for us, it does not live it up to the hype. And here’s why.When you walk in to Please Please Please, you’re immediately presented with a really weird fit out. It’s clearly an old building which has had some renovations done on it, but not everywhere. So in some areas you get a modern feel, in some areas it’s really old fashioned. And old fashioned in a bad way.Not only that, the old parts of the building haven’t really been looked after with evidence of sticky tape on the walls, window frames and some tables. It just looks like someone forgot to clean it up. The fitout really annoys me.The coffee tasted brilliant. Two minor gripes. It was luke warm. And it was served in the wrong cup. But I have to say that the flavour of the coffee and texture of the milk made up for these two minor criticisms. It was excellent.The food was good too. We had the Ho Lee Fuk Rice and Salted Egg Chicken Rice Bowl. Both were tasty and good quality.So while we really don’t like the fitout of this place, it’s still quite a good cafe to come to. Just forget about all the hype you see on social media as this hype sometimes has the effect of raising your expectations too high. Just come here and enjoy a good meal and excellent coffee.
Wifi 4mbps down & 2.5mbps up. Not really a place for working.
