It has been quite awhile since the last time I went to Cafe Batavia. It's so nice to be back again to this classy colonial building restaurant.

Since I didn't have my breakfast, thus I had breakfast first then continued with lunch. As in the old days, the food in Cafe Batavia has not disappointed me :)

Btw, I managed to see the unique male restroom in this Cafe Batavia ;) Why is it unique? Well... Guess what? There is no wall hung urinals nor dividers! In fact, there's only a really big mirror on the wall where men can directly urinated in front of the big mirror (left picture).
