Despite being surrounded by notable university and high schools in the city, it's easy to miss the cafe as it doesn't have prominent signboard from outside (my Grab driver nearly missed the cafe). Well, Threelogy is located behind St. Louis Senior High School and just a stone throw away from Widya Mandala Catholic University. It has smoking and non-smoking sections, whereby the non-smoking area feels quite crampy.
Bright sunlight streaming in? Checked. Instagenic spots? Yes, 75% of its patrons were spotted taking OOTD when I came here.
Sorry for the photo spam, now let's move on to the food hehe
I asked the barista if I could get a cup of skinny latte, but unfortunately they only have the regular one. Okay then. The latte art looks pretty. But it was too acidic for my liking, making the drink taste rather unpalatable. I put in a half sachet of zero-calorie sweetener and my latte turned awful. Btw, I love the pics I took above. The grass in the background makes it look like I was having my coffee time in the garden lol.
Iced Roasted Hazelnut - IDR34,000
You need to stir this drink thoroughly or else it will taste so bitter. I believe it's coffee-based, but the coffee was rather bland while the hazelnut taste was stronger than expected. Go for it if you fancy nutty drink.
Since nothing on the food menu enticed me, I opted for my favorite Caesar salad. I think they used iceberg instead of Romaine lettuce so it was less crunchy. The sauce was lacking, so the salad as a whole felt dry. I would suggest them to use grilled chicken instead of fried one, because I think there's no point having salad with greasy fried chicken. After all, salad is a part of my healthy life scheme (do I smell bullshit here?).
My brother said the so-called baked rice was never actually baked - in fact it was more like fried rice with melted mozzarella on top. Nevertheless, the portion was just nice and satisfying. The taste was okay and it was loaded with egg, mushroom and broccoli. The chicken used was similar to the one in my salad.
Overall, Threelogy is an okay chill spot in the city center. Didn't find anything remarkable here other than its clean white interior though. Also, it only opens at 1pm (which is too late for me); whereas I could envision this place as a great breakfast or brunch spot if it opens as early as 8am. Well, there's always a room for improvement, and I would love to see much more from Threelogy in the future. Ciao!
