When did coffee became a must on Sundays? Take last Sunday for example, every coffee shop that I visited was choke full of people! I was supposed to have a meeting over a few cups of coffee, but I ended switching to 2 places because I couldn’t find a seat or even parking space. Probably, these days, people are bored of shopping malls and decided to go hipster. Where do hipsters go then?
Okay, that sounded very advertorial, but I mean it. In the middle of finding the right place to meet and talk, @captainruby suggested a place called Kuppie, located in STC Senayan GF/56. It opens everyday from 10 to 21 but closes early every weekend. Not a problem, because all I needed was a place to sit down for a quick meeting.
As I entered STC, I lowered my expectations towards Kuppie. I mean, it’s a cafe in a mall. What can you expect? However, I was so content with what I saw at Kuppie. It was very hipster with a little mix of vintage and Lego!
I am a very old fashioned guy. I listen to Stevie Wonder, love old wooden furniture and flowery designed sofas. Vintage stuffs are just so not intimidating unlike the present day edgy culture. That is why some vintage coffee shops caught my attention more than the others. Even though it was just a dust of vintage, Kuppie is definitely one of them.
Size might not be its biggest asset. Kuppie is a small and warm coffee shop that gives the right vibe to unwind. After a few cups of appetizing coffee, I felt the urge to hang loose for a while. Unfortunately, work calls, even on a Sunday! I guess that’s one of the perks of being 20. You have all the energy and spirit you need to even work on holidays! This is not definitely something I endorse too much though.
Kuppie, I am giving you 8/10. You are warm and kind, just like those white grandmothers in Hollywood movies that bake cakes for you and make you feel at home.
