Why the U?

#1: Are you a coffee addict or tea lover? Don’t dismay – we have both! Perk up your mornings with our white chocolate latte or caramel latte for those who love a bit of extra sweetness, or The U macchiato and americano if you'd like something a bit stronger. If coffee is not your cup of tea, do try our ice blends (we love Black Forrest Ice Blend!) or our selection of tea.

#2: Our food is to-die-for. If you're up for brunch, try The U Special Breakfast or The U Caesar Salad. We recommend Bolognaise pasta and Lasagna for Italian food lovers, or steaks and The U Ribs with caramel sauce for those who prefer a hearty meal. Don't forget to try our famous French Toast for dessert and you're in for a very tasty treat.

#3: Our library has vast collections, from rare vintage literature to bestseller books in both English and Indonesian. We also provide a wide range of games, from classic Monopoly to challenging Sudoku, and much more!

#4: Just want to sit back and browse? We also offer free Wi-Fi for your laptops. Just inquire our receptionist for password and details.

#5: Our service and ambiance. Feel like a fresh change after a tiring day, just to sip a cup of hot coffee and read? Our ambiance is cozy and homey. Make yourselves at home, ‘disappear’ temporarily in the pages of a good book and lounge music, and let our staffs spoil you with our best service.

#6: We love communities! We love to hold book signings, launchings, community gatherings, bazaars and book swaps. Need a venue for your campus activities and club gathering? Feel free to contact us and we will try our best to help.

Are you looking for a cozy spot for brunch with friends?
Are you looking for a place for your birthday or anniversary party?
Perhaps you are planning a romantic candlelight dinner date for your loved one and want us to help in making the moment more memorable?
