If you’re currently living or visiting the Capital of Indonesia, you would soon realize that the coffee shops in Jakarta are mushrooming like a cherry blossoms on Spring. No surprise, since Jakarta is full with expatriates, executives, and all these independent freelancers who need their daily dose of caffeine to fully function. But coffee is not the sole reason for coming to the coffee shops (although they have kick-ass coffee too!). These coffee shops are warm, comfy, and their interior are so pretty that they become the main ootd-and-kinfolk-kind of photos in our Instagram timeline. Check out these photogenic 10 coffee shops in Jakarta for your next visit!
1. Caribou Coffee
Caribou Coffee is a franchise coffee shop from America. In every one of their cafes (they have some branches in Jakarta), they manage to get these cozy wood-dominated interior with spacious room and soft jazz to accompany us working on our stuff. They have outdoor and indoor space which are equally beautiful to take pictures on. It’s a classic American coffee shop. Oh, and try their McNara Pie while you’re there! It’s my favorite!

7. Trafique Cofffee
At a glance, you probably wouldn’t expect that the yellow metal thing leads a door to a cozy coffee shop at Southern Jakarta. Trafique is a hidden gem who is proud of its rustic and charming white bricks inside the coffee shop. They have pretty decorations (my favorite is the shelf full of car miniatures) and a small garden to refresh our mind from the concrete jungle. Enjoy!
