New York has its share of upscale java joints, but none that specialize in Indonesian brews. Enter this Greenwich Village café, a narrow 70-seat spot pulling blends from the island nation with a sleek siphon brewing system. The coffeemaker on steroids—called the Alpha Dominche Steampunk—uses a steam-powered boiler to crank out four sharp cups of joe at a turn. Signature drinks include es alpukat (coffee avocado milk shake) and a sweet brûléed cappuccino, both made with organic, single-origin beans. Wood carvings salvaged from Java and Bali hang on exposed-brick walls—a decorative nod to the owner's tropical birthplace—and an inverted iron chandelier dangles above the 1,500-square-foot room. The pastry selection skews American—croissants, turnovers and Danishes—but lunch plates are all Indonesian: satay maranggi (coriander-spiced beef skewers), soto ayam banjar (a lemongrass-and-ginger chicken soup) and nasi uduk betawi (rice and beef stewed in coconut milk).

I have yet to try their lunch menu items but I can definitely tell they're probably quite good! I love the vibe of the cafe, it's one of my favorite places to work and study if there's some semblance of space. Very cute place if you're in the NYU area and in need of some good coffee, good food, and good vibes.
