Over the years I have been watching with amazement at just how quickly and often Kemang changes with buildings going up, new businesses opening, closing again, buildings being knocked down, apartments being built and the face of the area never seems to stay the same. There has been one building that has been intriguing with circular artwork shimmering in the sun and only a couple of months ago I noticed that a new cafe had opened there.
Due to its position near the busy intersection on Jl Ampera Raya and Kemang Selatan Raya I had never managed to stop and check it out until recently and WOW… seems that this little cafe, Komunal 88 is the place to be in Kemang.. We decided to try it out for a lazy Sunday breakfast and got inside to find that it was completely packed with quite a long waiting list.. so with grumbling stomachs we decided to just pick out some bread and croissants and maybe come back another time. As there is very limited parking space you need to leave your car and keys and they park it somewhere down the road, so as we waited for the car to be returned, we sat outside and starting eating the croissants we brought. I cannot tell you how delicious and fresh and melt in your mouth they were. We had been waiting so long for our car to be returned that a table became available and so we decided to stay and headed back inside.
I love the industrial looking interior of this cafe and the vibe inside is really great too and boy is it busy! So after munching down on some baked eggs and delicious potatoes and running into some friends there, we left with full bellies and big smiles.
This is a great little place to hang out but better you ring and reserve a table if you plan to eat there! Give them a call on 021 7194673.
