OLD MATE. For some, the arrival of ST. ALi (Setiabudi 2 Building, Jl. HR Rasuna Said Kav. 62, Jakarta; +62 21 5290 6814; stali.com.au) in Jakarta is a long-awaited blessing
And it’s not only because ST. ALi has long been considered as one of the best coffee shops in Melbourne, if not the very best.
See, since it opened its doors, ST. ALi Jakarta has become a place to reminisce in shared nostalgia for Australian-educated Jakartans, especially since ST. ALi Jakarta’s interior, menu and even the La Marzocco espresso machine mirror the ones in the original store.
Newbies to this particular coffee shop are, of course, invited to taste ST. ALi’s coffee and find out for themselves why it is so popular.
Other than coffee, ST. ALi is also famous for its chicken, beef and pork burgers.
