After three months of dine in service was temporarily closed as an effort to prevent the spread of coronavirus, now Jakartans can go back again to eat and hangout at their favorite cafes or restaurants.
Maybe some of you miss to eat in a cafe or miss to enjoy the nature. What if you could get both without leaving the city? Are you interested? If so, here are some cafes in Jakarta with lush green scenery.
1. The Forest by Wyl's
The cafe offers the beauty like cafes in Ubud, Bali. As the name implies, The Forest by Wyl's spoiled its guests with a view of the stunning lush trees surrounding it, and an infinity pool that make the atmosphere more cozy. So it's not wrong if this place is called as a hidden oasis. The Forest is still located in Jakarta, precisely on Jalan Lebak Bulus No. 8, in Cilandak.
The Forest by Wyl’s also has an indoor area that is no less amazing. With tropical-modern style, the dining room is treated to natural lighting during the day coming from the high windows, and decorated with minimalist ornaments but still gives elegant impression.
Carrying the name Wyl's Kitchen, you don’t need to doubt the delicacy of every dish offered. A wide range of contemporary dishes inspired by the rich taste of Indonesian and Asian food are guaranteed to make your visit even more memorable. If you are interested in visiting The Forest by Wyl’s, try to make a reservation first.

2. Arborea Cafe
Not much different from The Forest, Arborea Cafe is also surrounded by soothing lush trees. The cafe was opened when the Asian Games were held, with the hope that it could be a place for tourists or athletes to relaxed.
Arborea Cafe is located within the Manggala Wanabakti area, in Central Jakarta. Although the location seems hidden, but Arborea Cafe is quite easy to find. After entering inside, you only need to find Arboretum Ir. Lukito Daryadi monument. From there, you can see a cafe with a unique design that stands firmly in the forest.
Although it's not too big, but the design of Arborea Cafe is very interesting, because it looks like a wooden cube. No wonder the cafe in the middle of the forest is so Instagramable. Arborea Cafe consists of two floors. The ground floor is a simple booking area and dining area with several chairs and tables. While the second floor is an indoor dining area. There is also a rooftop, but only for relaxed or taking pictures.
