Talking about food and restaurants in Jakarta is never-ending, right? This city has numerous restaurants which offer different kind of menus—not only Indonesian food but also international food. Not to mention the street hawkers, some of which have good reputation and have become everyone’s favorite.

People go to the restaurants not only to have big meals. Some choose to have only desserts. And guess what, Jakarta has many dessert parlors that are worth a try. Each of these parlors offers unique and tasty desserts, from cotton candy to fancy cakes that are too cute to be eaten.

Here are some must-try dessert parlors in Jakarta:



Cake shops are my favorite place to hang out in Jakarta. Cacaote is one of them. Cacaote offers various tasty and cute-looking cakes. If you visit this place you must try Dark Chocolate & Hazelnut Cake. It is a dome-shaped cake that consists of soft chocolate sponge, crunchy feulletine, salted caramel, dark chocolate mousse and coated with chocolate glaze and edible gold glitters. This restaurant also offers other western menus such as salad, soup, and pasta. On top of the delicious menus, interior design at Cacaote will make you feel like at a tea shop in Europe.
