    Sophie Authentique has great stuff. Remember that the branch at the Grand Indonesia Mall is just a takeout kiosk in the 5th floor food court. It’s not a place to take your laptop.

    Fortunately I did find a place to take my laptop in the mall–the Djournal Coffee on the ground floor. Everything about it was good: coffee quality, good food, good ambience. I’d include it in this list, and future ones.
