This place isn't bad but it is surely overrated in my opinion. The atmosphere is great. Decorations are cute and thoughtful. Coffee and cakes are too sweet for my taste though. The seats are also not comfortable as most chairs are stools with no back support and the tables are packed and placed too close to one another.

Went here for lunch with friend. Ordered caesar salad and chamomile tea. I wasnt hungry atm, especially after looking out at the price. Caesar salad was standard IMHO, remind the price is high I would not reccomend it. For me, the place is just another lifestyle pricey coffee shop.

I have been a number of times for work meetings and it is hard to fault Monolog for this. The coffee is good and the service is great. I went with a friend and his three kids. I must say the options are limited for kids, but it isn't a complete failure. I think they should probably do a sweet... More

Not sure why this place is popular for the early morning people, having meetings here, like breakfast meetings, for stop over and meeting friends. It is almost always full with coffee addicts. Good place yo have light meals or pastries, all look nice. I quite like this place. It must be tge friendly staff and the ambiance and the coffee... More

Ive been to Monolog a number of times. This time however, never this early! Got there about 715 in the AM and while I didnt really plan on buying anything but a energetic juice mix (cant remember the name but it had Kale and celery in it) - and I gotta say it was pretty good. I probably could've just... More

Had brunch here again. Tried a different menu this time, the omelette breakfast set. When it came, I was very surprised of the size and portion of the set. Loved the garlic roasted potatoes. Not so keen on the omelette itself. I wished it was fluffier and lighter. But it was quite a fulfilling breakfast. Kept me through until dinner... More

Sorry that I am writing this. We were looking forward to good coffee here yesterday, but were SO disappointed. Monolog was recommended to us by Jakarta residents. The location in the parking area behind Plaza Senayan is a bit odd, but we were forewarned. However, we were not prepared for the absolute worst flat white coffees we have ever tasted... More

Been few times to this place for their breakfast. Wide selection, good food and good coffee. Never try their other menu so could not comment on the rest of the food.

Located near parking lot of Plaza Senayan, this is a good place to start your day with a cup of coffee or tea, or maybe for breakfast. Open at 7 AM, it's enough to fuel your morning before activity. I usually take a breakfast here if I have early morning meeting. I like their omelette set, pair with a cup... More
