I absolutely love Dharma! It's a cozy, yet modern coffee and juice shop that has excellent coffee, kombucha and kefir drinks, complete with a great menu of tasty vegan eats. All of their jackfruit burgers and avocado toasts are simply outstanding. All of them. Plus a great selection of raw chocolates brownies for your sweet tooth.
Dharma is super conveniently located right outside of Bintang supermarket. Look for the fun swing chairs outside!

Dumbo is The Elephant's sister cafe. It's a super hip spot that serves an inventive breakfast and lunch day menu, then transitions into a full bar menu complete with wood-fired Italian food in the evenings.
An all vegetarian restaurant, there are many vegan options on the menu. I was wowed by a creamed corn polenta with mushrooms and onions on sourdough toast. Chill points to the max. Vinyl records for tunes add to the super cool vibe.
