Nowadays, we’ve been very lazy to go to coffee shop to capture some photos. That’s all because we thought that our photos will look the same somehow, so we tried to find other places such as dessert houses or gelato corner or something to chill. That day, we wanted to go to this place called Shophaus in Menteng but it was saddening because that place was packed up with hundreds of people and I just couldn’t wait more than 15 minutes. I don’t suggest you go there in the afternoon. You won’t find a place to sit.
It’s the day after Christmas. Me and my colleagues decided to meet after pushing back the dates quite some time. We wanted to surprise a colleague of mine so we tried to set the meeting place near her office which is in North Jakarta. I searched on the internet a decent place to eat our lunch and one place got my attention. Honestly, I had never heard of this place before. It’s Fika Public Eatery in Sunter, North Jakarta. I didn’t have any hard time going to this place. I only followed Google Maps and voila, we arrived.
It was a fine Saturday morning, I was wondering where should I go this weekend. Suddenly, my phone vibrated and it’s from my high school Line group. Wondering what that was about, I opened my phone and one of my high school friend asked us all to meet because it’s been months since we last saw each other. We wanted to caught up with the latest news from each other, so we decided to meet up. I suggested a place where I have been wanting to go all this time, but I just didn’t have that opportunity, He.Brews Coffee Corner. As the name suggests, it was located in the corner and it was in line with Dapur Cokelat Bakery so you couldn’t miss that.
We arrived at 10.15 am and the coffee shop was quite deserted. From the first impression, I liked this place so much. The natural lights flew in like no other coffee shop I had visited before, this was totally perfect place for photography. Despite all the sunlights that made its way in, the room temperature was cool; perfect temperature. The coffee shop located on the first floor along with chapter nine boutique.
The second floor and the third floor was occupied with dentist etc. If you want to sit here for hours, come early and choose the sofa because it felt so comfortable sitting there. The place also has this outdoor area for smokers but I didn’t see anyone there, maybe just because of the hot weather.
Besides, I love their table colors and all. So I managed to capture a lot of their tables and chairs. Lol. pardon me.
We ordered two cups of latte (40k), one cup of café mocha (45k), one cup of matcha latte (35k), and one glass of iced honey lemon yakult (45k). It took 10-15 minutes for all the drinks to come but because of the excitement in our conversations, we just didn’t realize we wait for 15 minutes. There was only two baristas when we come and they act as the waiter and cashier, so we pardoned them.
The latte fit my friends’ palate, so she said it was quite good.
My other friend said the café mocha is okay too, no complain.
As for my matcha latte, it was the best one after Kopium. The matcha was thick and the sweetness was perfect, two thumbs up.
The iced honey lemon yakult, nobody knows my love for those three things (honey, lemon, and yakult), and it was served in one freaking glass. I felt I could fly into heaven, okay stop with the nonsense. I felt like the strongest flavor was yakult and I barely could taste the lemon and honey. Despite the ‘absence’ of those two things, it’s a great drink. Perfect sweetness too. I liked it very much and I might as well order it again the next time I come. Not to mention, it came in a such a big tall glass. A great way to refresh my thirst.
I just love to capture the flowers here. By the way, my friend brought some board game and we played until we were tired of laughing and I was sorry for people who came there for solitude just because we were to loud. Haha.
Actually, they served some savory menu too like fish and chips, etc, but we just didn’t want to eat, so maybe on the next visit i will try them. For me, the baristas need to be friendlier, I mean most of baristas nowadays are greeting and saying goodbye to their customers. It’s not an act to respect but it is to show the warmth welcoming atmosphere that every shop needs. Don’t you guys agree with me?

Two days after the November 4th incident, scary news are everywhere through messaging apps. We were encouraged not to go out of the house that day but I heard from my friends that they had been to several areas in my neighborhood just to eat or have fun, hence I realized that everything had been settled and it was a great time to go on a trip again. To anticipate any dangerous events here and there, I was planning a short trip around my neighborhood. Continue reading “Oetara Coffee – Muara Karang, North Jakarta”
I’ve been wanting to visit this place for like months now since it opened a while ago but me and my BFF had been prioritizing other places according to the situations we had on those days. I remembered it was rainy at Kemang and we decided to drive to this place which is not very far from the previous destinations. The place is called Lucky Cat Coffee and Kitchen. I bet everyone of you had known it or maybe had visited it even, but I want to share my experience when I came to this place.
It’s almost 8pm but me and my friends wanted to chill down, relax, and have some good drinks after rampaging Shao Kao at PIK. One of my friend knew a new and hip place where we could have all that. It’s Holywings. Actually, this place was quite famous and became a topic back then because they invited quite big singers like Raisa, Tompi, etc. But I didn’t have time to go there.
