  • I called this place as a literally homey cafe.. as a stop after sunny walking in Jogja, you can enjoy some unique foods, cold beer, fresh juice, and friendly artistic owner.. enjoy the moment here and listen the owner play accoustic guitar..
  • Honest owner and authentic cafe. Really like their food, it's simple but fresh. If only the tour guide is as honest as Pak Kompi (the owner of this cafe). Thanks a lot Pak, sukses selalu!
  • The Nasi Campur is so good! Especially with a sultan tea!
  • Romantic and tasty place with friendly family that is making every visit an unforgettable pleasant experience.
  • Ethnic Restaurant for Tourist after walking around Tamansari. Lil'bit expensive.
