One of the nicest place you can see in Jakarta is Cafe Batavia. History tells us that this is the second erected building at the Fatahillah Square after the city hall (now Jakarta Historical Museum). This 2-story cafe is still as strong as the original and offers nice experience for all of you. You'll feel like you are somewhere outside Indonesia long, long time ago for an hours you dine here. I really want to comeback to this place someday. For some photos, I used sepia from my camera to make it look like classic pictures.
So, for a taste of international food, nice view, and historical lesson, you can always visit:
