In this edition of Hot 50 Cafes, we highlight Butfirst Coffee Shop.
Looking for a relaxing cafe, the perfect cup of coffee with a side of an excellent treat? Look no further – Butfirst Coffee is a peaceful hideaway in the residential neighbourhood of Dharmawangsa and one of our team go-tos for a serious coffee and a day of remote working.
One of the original tenants of the now much busier Pelaspas building, the cosy cafe is perfect for those looking to grab a quick coffee before the start of the day or a jolt of joe for a productive afternoon. Serving smooth cuppas in wonderful ceramic mugs that you wish you could take home, Butfirst is a great little spot for those who truly appreciate coffee. Caffeine fiends can have their espresso-based coffee black or with milk, and what has us returning time and time again is their expertly brewed cold-drip drinks that is enjoyable to drink in the small outdoor courtyard. And still most charming of all is Butfirst’s corner windowsill, lined up with lovely dog-eared books for visitors to read through. Besides the simple offerings of daily baked cookies, Butfirst does not serve much nosh, but there are plenty of other cafes in Pelaspas to find nibbles for later.
Butfirst, Jl. Darmawangsa Raya No. 4, South Jakarta. Opening Hours: Sun-Thu 7am-9pm, Fri–Sat 7am-11pm.
