Visiting Batam for the weekend and still planning on which cafes to cafe-hop? Now, we have got you covered in this article.
These are the TOP 5 MUST-VISIT cafes in Batam and each of this cafe is unique to its own.
1. Sense Coffee & Pool
Don’t we all love a unique Instagram-worthy spot with amazing food? And a pool too? Say WHAT?!
This whimsical cafe in Batam will give you just that! It is one of Batam’s most photogenic cafes with pocket-friendly desserts, free wifi and numerous power sockets. Although it may look small, it is actually spacious with an extended outdoor area and a swimming pool which patrons can have a swim in. The pool also has a shallower section cordoned off for the little ones to have some fun in the sun too.
Instead of the colourful murals throughout the entire cafe, there are plain backdrops for those who wanted to snap a good OOTD shot.
You can also find typical cakes and coffee here but at pocket-friendly prices. For instance, their Dragon Bowl – a dragonfruit smoothie in a bowl as big as that of cup noodles – only cost IDR 35000 (~S$3.35). Banana slices, raisins, oats and almonds are served generously as toppings. It is best to share with friends as the portion is quite huge.
Overall, it is a great place to chill at; for families too, with all its amenities.
