Honestly, I truly adore their works. I was once became the talent in their “Home vs House” project (I might upload it later), and tell you what? They are such a fun team to work with! I am not familiar in doing such thing as being a model or doing an act in front of the camera (total amateur), yet they made everything seemed so easy to do, and that is why I agreed to do another project with them. This time, we did a video about a new cafe in town.
They just launched their soft opening two weeks ago, and you might already guess what’s the place may look like, just by reading the name. Yep, like a cafe and a library, it is a place to hangout where you can also read the books or the magazines that they provide in the shelf. 🙂 Speaking of books and magazines, Libreria Eatery is even located right next to Uranus, a book store that I can’t really pronounce because it always sounds too weird to say, LOL. It’s like saying, ‘your anus’……….. Erm… Back to the topic! So anyways…. I guess their presence on the area really compliment each others, and that’s what I called a nice combination.
Let’s go inside.
I went there on the evening with the dudes from Fovea Project plus one dude from Branding & Projects. And luckily, there were no customers at that moment, such an advantage! So we could take pictures and videos without having to embarrass ourselves or making other people uncomfortable, yayy!
After looking around on the first floor for a while, this place reminded me of Three O Six and Monopole, a typical Surabaya’s coffee shop. But what I like about Libreria was it actually felt more homey. The woods and the plants were always soothing to be looked at. And those interesting books and magazines were a huge plus! <3 The place itself is not too big when it comes to how many people they can have inside, probably less than 50 person maximum for both first and the second floor.
Let me show you upstairs
The second floor reminded me of Cup & Crumbs and D’licious, well, only for the mural part actually, haha.. ;P To be compared with the first floor, I like it better in here, because the area was wider and the lighting was whiter and brighter. For the first hour, the second floor was truly ours. We took pictures here and there and we talked and laughed as we pleased, like a boss, haha. Oh.. If you are a smoker, don’t worry, they have the outdoor area for you. ^^
Their menu was pretty simple, one page for both foods and drinks. Mostly western foods, nothing really special or specialized, and price wise, it was pretty standard for me, but for some, it’s quite heavy on the drinks. Prepare 70k-100k would be enough.
Here’s what we got :
Egg Benedict Rp. 33.000,- & Iced Thai Tea Rp. 25.000,-
Coney Dog Rp. 39.000,-
Everything was great, except for the very greasy looking french fries. I love the combination of the sausage with the minced beef, onions and the mozarella cheese. Would be perfect if the buns were more crisp, but this one was okay. The french fries were soft and yummy actually, but it did look really greasy and unhealthy. (But I ate it anyways, lol)
|Meet the dudes!|
- The place was homey, the ambience was nice the songs were relaxing.
- The waitress was friendly but I think Libreria is a self service system cafe. Because you ordered and paid your foods in the first place. Then the waitress would deliver it to your table, and I didn’t see any of them stood by on the second floor, so if you want something, you have to come down and ask for yourself.
- Think about upgrading your parking lot
