A common thought will undeniably float in one’s head when pressing the second floor button in the elevator of Senopati Suites to reach On Three, “Is it on the second or the third floor?” Besides located in tower number three of the posh apartment complex, On Three does technically reside on the third floor—if you count Ground Floor. That, is only one of a few quirks that are apparent here and there in this cafe.
Here’s another eccentricity to dissect: The neon lights. Yes, they are common sightings in F&B establishments these days, but who would’ve thought to put it on the ceiling? The “One, Two, Three, Go!” neon creates a muted reddish glow in the elevator corridor, soundlessly nudging visitors to pull out their phones and take a snap. These purposeful quirks have become a part of On Three’s brand, as if letting quirky people know that this is your kind of place.
But the best feature of On Three Senopati Suites has got to be the smoker-friendly outdoor area. Green with pops of fun from the colorful plush sofas, it is where one would want to spend a cloudy afternoon with friends over coffee and snacks. With a view of the tranquil swimming pool, one could almost forget that On Three is still located in busy South Jakarta.
As for coffee, respect to On Three Senopati Suites for not trying too hard to be a specialty coffee shop. Yes, there are manual brew and a selection of single origin beans for you to enjoy, but it is not the main focus. They are not shy in exploring what they can do with coffee to cater to a bigger audience. Kurogoma Coffee, for instance, successfully marries cappuccino with roasted and ground black sesame. Meanwhile, Ice Creamy Coffee is a satisfyingly creamy blend of coffee, milk, and bubbles of chocolate powder.
For us, the main appeal of On Three Senopati Suites is its strategic location. Centered enough for meetings, yet hidden enough from the noise of the city. The space is very well-designed that people feel comfortable to sit down longer and talk. We also appreciate that they don’t try to be anybody else that they’re not. Can’t say much about its recent main course addition, but we look forward to give it a try in the future. With that being said, hope you are intrigued by our entree to On Three. Let us know what you think of the place once you go there yourself.
