Herb & Spice Cafe
It is obvious that the owners of this place want people to associate the restaurant with the use of herbs and spices in their dishes. The location is kind of confusing as the building is merged with a cake shop and bakery, Prima Rasa, at Pasir Kaliki street no. 163. I accidentally found this place…
Sierra Cafe: Good Food, Good View, Good Time
Located at Jalan Bukit Pakar Timur no. 33, Sierra cafe offers not only good food, but also breath-takingly stunning city view of Bandung. Comfortable, chic, modern, romantic; every dining area is designed to indulge your different taste. This restaurant is quiet spacious that it can cater up to 700 customers, making it an excellent choice to hold a meeting or even a wedding celebration.
Walking into this cafe at 5 PM, I enjoyed the fresh air blowing from its outdoor area. Comfortable sofas are set to face the landscape showing all the buildings and green space below it. As the time passed by, the night lights illuminated the view and its sparkles come to life. Presently, a couple showed up. Then, come families who want to enjoy their evening.

Despite its exclusivity, Sierra cafe is incredibly affordable. The menu consists of a wide range of Indonesian traditional foods and western cuisines that start from only as much as 25,000 rupiah/around 2 USD (tax excluded). It’s fashionable and fancy presentation might lead us into thinking that this place is out of our budget. But boy, was I wrong! I tried their iga bakar penyet (grilled ribs with traditional chili sauce), baked potato soup, and peach mango berry for only 12 USD. I really enjoyed the originality of the taste and how they are served in big enough portions.
Moreover, the marketing staffs really stand out for their helpfulness. It was hands down the easiest, fastest, most convenient booking process I’ve ever been through. Not to mention how up-to-date they keep their website, allowing anyone to swiftly check out their menus, promos, and packages.
The only thing that’s missing from this place is probably a reliable WiFi connection. For someone who loves working at cafes such as myself, this could be a major deal breaker. But overall, it’s still a great family and working space.
