Walk into the beautiful Javanese joglo pavilion complete with pretty hand-painted floor tiles, comfy sofas and batik cushions, and try to guess what’s it about. Ok, let’s see. Thin-crusted Italian pizza – check. Oh, that aroma from the oven is driving us bananas! Cold-pressed, super-healthy juices by the juice wizards In The Raw – check! Good coffee (we can hear the grinding-steaming sounds from the street) – check. Apparently, there is nothing The Joglo won’t have, and we like it lots as we don’t have to compromise and choose in-between a healthy smoothie bowl and that sinful Quattro Formaggi we lust badly. We can – and we will! – have it all!
Pass the open-air zone and enter the cafe, chilled down to the sobering 24C: ahhh, what a breeze on a damn hot day! The best place to stay for half a day, hiding from the rest of the world, enjoying your brekkie in the blissful calmness, working, skyping (yeah, never planned it, but well, hello mum!), sipping on the creamy flat whites, one after another. Coffee, green juice, charcoal & lemon detoxifying potion – they have all our needs covered here, really. Why leaving?
And then there are Sunday brunches The Joglo does every week. You can choose between the “royal” Indonesian rijsttafel and the European set but we command you to opt for the first one without a second thought: the sight of the gazillion of little plates and bowls with all the yummy ingredients as heavily satisfying, as is their content. They literally cover all the table! Perfect scenario for an afternoon shared with the good friends.
Been eating too much lately, ms Muffintop? Hows about some workout for a change? There is a Sunset Pilates studio within the same complex, a modern, bright space with the professional gurus of healthy spines and tight booties. Join the club! You can grab a fresh beetroot juice after, or have a healthy salad. Yeah, you better sit as far away from that pizza oven as only possible 😉
The Joglo throws monthly special events and offers – keep an eye on their social media to be in the know. Hey, and don’t forget they have an awesome kids playground with swings, slide and trampoline. Fun for the whole fam!
