Hoods Coffee is a Bali-style cafe in Batam
Batam is a treasure trove of beautiful cafes and good food at wallet-friendly prices. Cafe-hoppers can bookmark Hoods Coffee, a Bali-style cafe with gorgeous interiors, for their next visit across to the Indonesian city.
A speedy 10-minute drive from Batam Ferry Terminal, this IG-worthy coffee spot boasts spacious interiors with simple wood furnishings and giant monsteras.
If you’re feeling peckish, the Truffle Beef Donburi (Rp 88,000+/~S$8.40+) will fill you up nicely. This hearty dish features tender beef slices drenched in an umami sauce, topped with just enough truffle oil for a piquant aroma, and spring onions for freshness.
Pack each spoonful with a generous serving of short-grain rice, which forms the perfect base for the flavourful meat.
Those with a sweet tooth can try the Caramel Walnut Croffle (Rp 26,000+/~S$2.50+), a trendy pastry that’s taken the social media world by storm. This tasty number features a crispy croffle with honey and lots of crunchy walnuts.
Get your caffeine fix with their Hand Brew (Rp 40,000+/~S$3.80+), where you get to select from their curated list of coffee beans. On our visit to the cafe, we tried the Tirto Weling, a local variety with sourish notes and a slightly nutty finish.
Otherwise, the Dirty Cream Latte (Rp 52,000+/~S$5+) is one cuppa that’s as delicious as it’s photogenic. It comes with freshly pulled espresso shots, paired with frothy, creamy milk foam for texture variation.
Another unique cafe in Batam worth checking out is Anchor Cafe & Roastery, which has a wide selection of specialty coffee to enjoy along with hearty Southern fare. Otherwise, read our full list of Batam cafes for your next weekend getaway!
