Like Indonesia’s other cities, Bogor also keeps up with current lifestyle trends, including coffee-shop culture. There are currently a number of chic cafes you can find in the city. Some of them have good ambience, others offer a unique interior.
Below are four coffee shops that are definitely worth a visit if you happen to be in town.
Where: Jl Siliwangi No. 65
Housed in a formerly abandoned shop house, Royale Cafe is currently one of the most hyped coffee shops in town. It is so crowded that it took me three attempts – on three separate occasions – before I was finally able to secure a seat.
I quickly realized why the cafe is so insanely popular. In addition to coffee, it has a patisserie on the first floor as well as a variety of local and international dishes to enjoy at the second floor's sofas or dining tables. I found the prices to be worth it, given the size and deliciousness of the meals.
Mostly adorned with wooden furniture, the interior feels warm and homey. It also has a terrace area decorated with flowers and vines as a smoking zone, which can also be a lovely background for a selfie.
Dailydose Coffee and Eatery
Where: Jl Tasmania III No. 141
This establishment's eye-catching turquoise with brown exterior makes it hard to miss. And it is probably why the cafe is particularly favored by the city's young generation.
Similarly to Royale Cafe, Dailydose also offers heavy meals such as oxtail soup and pasta in addition to coffee and assorted snacks. Prices are reasonable and free WiFi is available.
Where: Jl Bangbarung Raya
Around 3 kilometers from Dailydose, Imah Nini offers a unique vintage concept including old furniture and antique hanging wall decorations. I felt like I was at my grandparents' house when I went there for the first time, which explains the name, as "imah" means home, and "Nini" means grandmother.
In addition to affordable coffee options, Imah Nini features wood-fire pizza as its main dish. Visitors can also enjoy a variety of snacks while hanging out with friends in the cafe’s vintage atmosphere.
Where: Jl Loader No. 9
If coffee is the one and only thing you are seeking to enjoy, come to this minimalist cafe where there are no main courses on offer. The name "popolo", which means people in Italian, was an appropriate choice as all the staff are very friendly. The open coffee bar also conveniently allows you to chit-chat with the barista while your order is being prepared. For newcomers, its tortilla chips with orange cheese and ice nutellachino are a must-try.
