Legendary coffee in a nostalgic atmosphere
Bandung’s first coffee shop
This shop has been catering to coffee lovers in Bandung since 1930, and it is just as popular as it was back then.
A sip of hip
In 1930 Yong A. Thong, a Chinese-Indonesian from Medan opened ‘Chang Chong Se’, but he had to rename it ‘Warung Kopi Purnama’ in the 1960s, the days of anti-Chinese sentiment. The shop has always been a local hot spot with regular clientele, who keep coming back for, as the old advertisements at the back of the café put it, “a sip of hip”.
Milky coffee is what this historic shop does best. Try the kopi susu panas (Rp. 14.000), best enjoyed seated on the café’s charming indoor terrace. Feeling hungry? The café offers a mixed Malay and Chinese menu, with famous dishes such as Pisang Goreng Keju (16.000), roti selai srikaya (17.000) and bubur ayam (14.000).
