ANIMO BAKERY CIPETE

Just got back from a brief coffee date at ANIMO Bread Culture Cipete with my best friends and I don't know, I just want to do a short entry about this (and told ya lately I've been fond of doing short entries). It was raining very hard today for a couple of hours and I freaking took Gojek to Cipete because it's so far from my home, and not to mention the sick traffic, spent around 1,5 hours on the road can you imagine just how worsen the traffic in Jakarta has been.

I have talked about The best Kopi Susu in Jakarta and Animo is currently my favorite among the five that I mentioned on the list but the thing is I always get it delivered to me by Gojek and so many of you actually told me that they also bake fresh pastries #temptation.
Animo is actually very petite and I am not sure whether because it rained earlier today and the fact that it was pretty quiet earlier today but it kinda built up the homey ambiance that I like, just so calm and peaceful with blend of lingering scent of coffee and freshly baked pastries because the kitchen and bake-space is located in the same joint as the bakery and cafe. Major love.
Upon entrance you should see the pastries display and to be completely frank they all look so fly and tempting! I was feeling something classic so I went for their Pain au Chocolate (IDR 15k) and Donat Empuk Gemas (IDR 6k) and save the Kouign Annan, Butter and Almond Croissant (and maybe breads) for the upcoming visit! The pastries here are very affordable and of course it's a must that you pair the pastries here with their coffee, especially their famous Es Kopi Susu Animo! Other coffee options range from Espresso, Cappuccino, Ristretto, Macchiato, Latte with price ranging from IDR 10k-IDR 22k. Heard good things about their Es Coklat Animo but I didn't have one on this visit.

There were also more cakes around the cashier area and even though it's suggested that you do the self-service order as they provide trays and tongs, but at quite times like my visit, you can also ask for a little help (they actually offered me the help).
Look at that form, can already imagine the flakiness!
Es Kopi Susu Animo (IDR 17k), Pain Au Chocolat (IDR 15k), Donat Empuk Gemas (IDR 6k)
No complaint about their Es Kopi Susu Animo, still is really good and creamy, and for the quality that I got and the little price that I am paying, their Pain Au Chocolate was pretty good! It was flaky, puffy and moist with medium chocolate condiment and their fresh donut was beautifully fried without being oily but indeed fragrant, fresh, moist, fluffy and buttery! LOVE!
The thing is, I didn't have any expectation before arriving yet I ended up feeling pretty satisfied with my experience: the vibe, the pastries, the coffee and the price that I paid for, surely WORTH IT. Thank you for contributing to such an exciting afternoon Animo! If only I live in the South (a dream of mine which is going to be realized soon *fingers crossed).
