Sontoloyo A Must Visit Coffee Shop in Batu East Java – It always comes to my interest to visit a new place to eat. If the place is unique one, I am keen to enjoy it. Lucky, I have friends who have same interest.
In Batu, a city in East Java, Indonesia; there is a unique coffee shop that I visited recently. Even its name is very unique. This coffee shop called Sontoloyo. In Javanese, Sontoloyo has several meanings. One is silly but the other meaning is duck herder. I am not sure why the owner choose Sontoloyo as their coffee shop’s name.
Do not focus on its unique name. Once you get in this place you will find that this coffee shop offers its customers with a great experience of nice food, beverage in nice weather and beautiful scenery. As the location is in the village area, the surrounding is very peaceful.
At Sontoloyo A Must Visit Coffee Shop in Batu East Java, you can taste the food which usually served at the villages in Indonesia. It is an Indonesia classic food which my grand mother cooked when I was kid. I love its Wedang Tape which is a hot drink made from fermented rice and the fried banana. Oh ya, wedang is Javanese words which means hot drink.
This coffee shop is open daily at 3-11 PM. I suggest you to come before the sunset as you will see the beautiful scenery offered by this coffee shop. Since most of the buildings are set in open area, it is better to apply some anti mosquito lotion. Despite this issue, people enjoy to spend even hours at this place.
Next to the coffee shop, there is a gallery for art exhibition. Its name is Studio Jaring. There is a regular agenda for some artists to display their artworks. When I visited this gallery, there was a painting exhibition. I was really enjoy these artworks. If you stayed at Purnama Hotel Batu, both Sontoloyo and Studio Jaring are nearby.
You will not need to drain your wallet to enjoy the food, beverage and scenery at Sontoloyo A Must Visit Coffee Shop in Batu East Java. All is really inexpensive even for the youth to spend their Saturday night.
