Our 5 Favorite Cafe To Work In South Jakarta

Blumchen Coffee SCBD (Review by Wanderbites Food & Travel Blog)

Jakarta and its traffic. The culprit. The thing that throws us back and forth between loving and hating this city.

One of the workaround I’ve seen is more and more people (including me) set their working space in cafes strategically placed between where they live and the client’s office, or between the first meeting point and the next. Sometimes, the cafe becomes a spot for meeting marathon with different clients at different times of the day.

If that’s what you’re facing too, this list might be helpful for you. Here are a few of our favorite cafes / working spaces in South Jakarta. To serve its purpose, this quick list is less on the pictures, but more on the details.

We will update this list from time to time. In the meantime, we hope it comes in handy.
