In this edition of Hot 50 Cafes, we highlight Maarkeze by Ombe Kofie.
Those on the never-ending quest for a kick-ass coffee in Jakarta are of course well aware of Ombe Kofie, the legendary cafe up North. So of course caffeine fiends were thrilled when Ombe Kofie opened up not just one, but two, cafes down South last year. Amongst the two was Maarkeze by Ombe Kofie, a charming coffee bar situated in Grand Indonesia, where shoppers and workers in the area can quickly pop in for a quick fix.
The cafe is tucked away in Central Department store offering excellent coffee, expert brewers, delicious pastries and cosy decor. Choice of food and drinks include espresso-based coffees, a few sandwiches and a spread baked goods. For a perfect pick-me-up, knock back a lovingly made latte accompanied by a made-to-order apple and ricotta dessert pizza.
