Alt.Space

Puppy power! This pet-friendly cafe in Jaya One doubles as a "mobile office," where customers can rent work stations with printing & scanning facilities to remain productive all day long.

Spacious & cheerful-looking, though the service here seems to lack warmth.

Only simple cakes & pastries are sold at Alt.Space, but crisply juicy pork knuckles & other substantial fare can be ordered from Brussels Beer Cafe next door.

Alas, liquor can't be brought over from Brussels, so abandon all hope of sipping imported premium beer & cocktails. We settled for some juice & coffee here instead.

For a bit of booze, walk over to Frontera for shots of Mezcal, the Mexican distilled drink notoriously packaged with a worm in the bottle (or rather, moth larva).

Work is evil. And depressing. And it has sucked the youth from the marrow of our bones.

    1. Vien: nopes, i haven't been to pantai seafood. i think i remember hearing the knuckles there are good, which is surprising for a place with 'seafood' in its name. but will order it if i'm ever there, thanks :D

  4. "Work is evil. And depressing. And it has sucked the youth from the marrow of our bones."

    Is this from a poster on the wall? How unusual for a place that encourages folks to work in that space.

  8. Furkid friendly! That's most important for some of us furslaves. Lousy food also we will shamelessly head in there just so the furkids can be with us.
