Top choice Books

in South Jakarta

A wide selection of books (many in English) plus fine stationery and writing accessories make this hip hang-out a must-stop for anyone interested in words on paper. There's a small cafe serving coffee and cakes, plus a workshop offering various creative classes including sessions in pottery and art (enquire within about schedules).

Straight through the shop is a hidden mini courtyard with a retro photography store and independent cinema.
