Lonely Planet review
This atmospheric cafe occupies the premises of a beautifully restored warehouse that dates back to 1628. Enjoy a drink or meal inside the beamed interior or out on the terrace, which overlooks a grassy courtyard containing a vintage car and horse-buggy carriage. Prices are very reasonable for dishes such as gado gado or sup buntut (oxtail soup).
