The beauty of Yogyakarta is well known, with both nature and urban history offering plenty to enjoy and see. With the large number of things to see and do, days can be long, so it is always best to start with a good meal. To make sure you get the most out of your day, here are six place you might have missed that offer some tasty options when considering breakfast in Yogyakarta.
The perfect place to start the day with some healthy options, Café Brick is a fun and colourful place that is open 24 hours and which offers a range of healthy dining delights. The real standouts are the stunning smoothie bowls or the mouthwatering fruit salad, both a mixture of everything your body could need for the busy day ahead of you.
A popular artsy hot spot for locals and travellers alike, ViaVia also has some rather tasty offerings for breakfast. The Quesadilla with Spinach, Mushroom, and Cheese, which is served with some refreshing salsa, sour cream, guacamole, and salad, is a hearty way to start the day with a delicious vegetarian breakfast.
Although more of a restaurant than a local café or breakfast hotspot, Saffron has a host of tasty breakfast menu offerings to satisfy any culinary craving you might have. No matter how you want to start your day—sausages, sushi, or something a bit more delicate like Eggs Benedict—you will find it here in tasty abundance.
Cinema Bakery Prawirotaman
The food at Cinema Bakery is truly delicious and made using homemade or fresh ingredients. The end product is not just healthy but also full of flavour. A particular favourite is Egg Florentine: the late breakfast favourite comes with a poached egg, spinach, mushroom, and homemade bread and is truly delicious.
If you are using the train to visit or leave Yogyakarta, then a great place to catch a quick breakfast is Loko Café. With a bunch of Indonesian offerings that will satisfy your hunger cravings before any long journey, enjoy coffee, juices, and smoothies with some the locally loved Yogyakarta Soto that has become somewhat famous in the area.
Hidden away behind a traditional local market is the friendly Water Castle Café, which is a very popular destination for travellers coming back from Taman Sari due to the very friendly staff and manager who are willing to sit you down and talk through the menu and the different dishes. The Nasi Campur is very popular and is often recommended by many visitors to this beloved little café.
