As someone who works 9-to-5 from Monday to Friday, letting go the warm embrace of Sunday and everything that it has to offer could be tough sometimes. But, I didn’t have much of an option, right? Unless I have this super power to freeze time or extend it just for a little bit longer, then leaving Sunday behind won’t be much of a problem.
That is why I always make sure I had the most recharging weekend, which is mostly spent either by sitting at a coffee shop and reading a book, or trying out new places while having tons of laughter, exchanging stories with my favorite bunch.
Just a few weeks ago, I stumbled upon this homey desserts place called Hello Sunday. Totally a love at first sight for me simply because it has alfresco area with white walls and big window panes! Every blogger would love this kind of place because it makes your “I gotta take photos for my blog post this week” MUCH easier.
Located at Jalan Pangeran Diponegoro No. 21, Menteng, Center Jakarta, Hello Sunday is the place that makes you excited during the weekdays because you know Sunday is just around the corner! The name itself gives you this perspective that Sunday is no longer something that you waved goodbye, but something that you look forward to, like an old friend whom you can’t wait to see!
The beverages and appetizers taste surprisingly good. With plenty of new coffee shop, restaurant and desserts spots opening sporadically like every week, somehow not all new players could maintain the quality of their products. Sadly, most only offer comfy ambience with bad service and plain-tasted food and drinks.
What’s even more interesting about this place is that you can get local-flavored ice cream in cone or waffle with different toppings, and sauces with very cheap price, about IDR 30k. So I ordered Es Teler mixed with Gula Malaka flavors ice-cream, with original-flavored cone, and on top of it all, I picked pistachio crackers and almond-cashew crackers as my topping. Yums!
And of course, with that “oh-so-instagenic” surroundings you just have to get a nice OOTD photo for your Instagram. Amen?
