Anchor Cafe and Roastery
This is my most favorite cafe. I was instantly fallen in love when I come here for the first time. The place is clean, tidy, minimalist and coffee steady! Be it espresso or manual brew, I fell in love with both of it. Another menu that made me fall in love is an American Pecan Pie which was very tasty. A wide variety of Pie from American home-made recipe was also tempting to taste. Well, the owner is American!
Strategically located right in one corner of Dermaga Sukajadi, Batam Center makes this cafe within easy driving and distances from anywhere and easy to find because it is clearly visible from the roadside.
At Anchor, we also can see the roasting process, because this cafe has coffee roaster. It is placed right next to the bar, surrounded with glass wall, so visitors can see directly the process.
