Volks Coffee is placed in M.H Thamrin Street, as I said, in the center of Surabaya. If you girls know Miracle Aesthetic Center , Volks Coffee is like 5 houses away from there. 🙂 One of the legit thing I noticed the first time was that they already has a security to take care of the vehicles and the parking lot. Usually, a newly opened cafe don’t have any parking service, but in here, the security even asking for my car key like a valet parking staff. However, when I asked him for the parking ticket, he said, “Masih belum ada mbakk..” (we don’t have it yet, miss) hahaha.. But I trusted him anyways, so I just gave him my car key. (wait, who said I have trust issue?)
When I first enter Volks Coffee, the layout of this place really reminds me of Black Barn Coffee. But the difference was that Volks Coffee’s interior is more industrial, while Black Barn Coffee is more into Rustic theme.
In total, I guess Volks Coffee can accommodate 35 people inside. Outdoor space are still hot even in the evening, I went there at 4 pm, I sweat a lot while I took pictures outside. I’d always prefer inside, it’s much cooler, plus there are a lot of power outlet available there. I didn’t try the wi-fi though, because most of the time at the soft opening, it’s slow, or even unavailable, so I didn’t bother trying. Maybe next time 🙂
As a non coffee drinker, this is my two cents : it was light, and nice, in fact it was very nice. Even Mr. Inijie, a person that I might say an expert in coffee said it was a great one (he finished it btw, lol). And the (real) best part was : I didn’t get any bad side effects afterwards. I felt perfectly fine, no anxious, or nausea. So I was happy 🙂
Pork Belly Aglio Olio (45k)
Not the average Aglio Olio that you’ll find anywhere in Surabaya. And I would say, YOU-SHOULD-TRY-THIS! It was really unique, but at the same time, very good! But sadly, this is not for the Moslem, pork alert. Below the Pork Belly, you’ll find the chopped salted vegetables (sayur asin) that you would also find in every Pork Belly dish. That makes a quite difference, a good one. I just loved it, and I suppose you would too. 🙂 Thumbs up for this.
Overall, Volks Coffee is a nice place to hangout with your friends, do some work, or just to sip your favorite coffee. I wish all the best for Volks Coffee. I did really enjoy the coffee & the food. I’ll come back for sure! 🙂
