Fillmore Coffee – Hidden Café Gem At Kuningan, Jakarta. For Good Coffee And Smoothie Bowls
[Jakarta, Indonesia] Finding Fillmore Coffee can be tricky, but it coffee aficionados have made their way to find this highly instagrammable hipster café.
It is called the hidden gem of Kuningan, Jakarta.
There is no signboard of the coffee shop that is visible from the streets. Here’s the tip, get yourself directed to a mid-high-rise building called “Suites @Seven Residence”.
Fillmore coffee is located at the ground level of this residence.

Is this the right way? This better be worth it!
These thoughts may be running through your mind as well while trying to find this coffee shop.
Plus, you need that good driving ‘skill’ by driving through a 2-way arrow alley, matched with uneven surface, added with the worry of the car being scratched.
Perhaps it was all worth it.
The moment I stepped in, I was greeted with the homey and cozy ambience, and the friendly staff was quick to make you feel welcomed.
This could make you forget about Jakarta’s hectic city life and insane traffic jams.
An instagenic place where you can possible spend an entire day there. Do not forget about the outdoor space above on the second floor.
There is also a light feature that cleverly marked “I Am Home”.
The espresso based drinks here include Gibraltar (IDR 38K, SGD$3.80) using beans that originated from San Francisco, Flat White (IDR 40K, SGD$4), Cappuccino (IDR 38K for hot, IDR 42K SGD$4.20 for cold), Latte (IDR 38K for hot, 42K for cold), Honey Latte (IDR 42K for hot, 45K for cold), Mocha (IDR 42K for hot, 45K for cold), and Avodato (IDK 40K) – that is avocado ice cream with espresso.
For a start, I enjoyed my Hot Long Black (IDR 34k, SGD$3.40) – a classic with nothing added, the perfect start to the day.
Their Facebook also states ” We brew good coffee with crappy latte art.” LOL
There are not many savoury options available here, but you could have some of their pastries such as Galette Des Rois (IDR 25k, SGD$2.50) which is French butter Galette contained with almond paste.
This pastry cake traditionally eaten to celebrate the arrival of the Three Wise Men in Bethlehem, was crisp and thankfully not too sweet.
The signature Fillmore Smoothie Bowl (IDR 62k, SGD$6.20) consisted of chocolate, banana, peanut butter and granola.
This makes for a fulfilling meal, with its thick and creamy texture packed with hearty goodness.
Fillmore Coffee has become one of my favourite coffee places in Jakarta, and a lot got to do with the comforting vibes.
Did I mention free and fast wifi?
