You know, some of my friends are travelling-freak who are able to have those trip between their working days. Thing I love about it is I've got to know their favorite place and cool cafes overseas. Sometimes their experience drooled me a lot. Among those coffee, the one that caught my attention was Toby's Estate. I remember one of my friends had this major crush over their coffee and kept saying that Toby's was one of the best they had. So I got my curiosity about Toby's Estate.
Until God heard my prayer: yes, Toby's Estate is coming to Indonesia. Pantai Indah Kapuk, Jakarta, to be exact.

Meet Toby Smith, coffee expert behind the genius idea of Toby's estate. He spent years and years learning all about coffee and finally here to share the goodness of Toby's with us. Never in my mind slip that Toby's in Australia is that good. They actually sell over 1000 cups of coffee before 9 am. Yes, 9 am in the morning. I love to hear how those people appreciate and enjoy good coffee, as much as I do. So you can start imagining how good Toby should be, right?

So Toby's located in PIK Avenue, North Jakarta, one new mal in Pantai Indah Kapuk area. I honestly quite surprised about them opening Toby's here. I thought it would be somewhere around South Jakarta. It is surely a good thing, one (more) good coffee shop in North Jakarta.
Location is strategic, you can spot its pretty coffee right from the lobby. the one across the Tsu Zhi building. Ambiance? Post as hell. Rustic and modern twist in spacious spot. Major love! 

As a latte person, I tend to judge the coffee shop by its latte. Good thing that theirs is one of my favorite. Perfect amount of milk and coffee, light but not watery. It's like finding a heaven in a cup. Definitely a kick to my morning. I also have their cold brew, but I feel like I have better one somewhere. The taste is just not there.

Another thing to love at Toby's: Australian kind of brunch. Yes I'm a major sucker for brunch and having their brunch menu really enlighten me. I have this Kale salad, which is so good, crispy, with light dressing. Homemade Papardelle pasta with generous meat on top is surely a treat for me too. But me favorite would be Buttermilk fried chicken with on corn fritata and ricotta pancake, the chicken is so flavorful, juicy, and tender, the sauce is so yum, the corn fritata is really there to enhance everything to give a little bit crunchiness on every bite. Patty melt burger offer one guilty pleasure with its juicy meat and tasty sauce. Too bad I do not have a chance to grabe their brioche french toast. 
The flavor of everything is really above my expectation, it definitely rocket into one of my favorite brunch list in Jakarta!
PS: price ranging fromIDR 35-155k

So. basically Toby's estate offers one good cup of coffee. I believe that one pretty place that offer comforting coffee and enjoyable meal could be one contender in Jakarta coffee situation. Congrats to you, Toby's Estate!
