While food in Indonesia is plentiful when it comes to the local staples (you’ll find a vendor practically at every street corner selling nasi goreng, noodles and other foodstuff) getting a classic breakfast can be a bit of a challenge. No fear though, because we’ve strung together this selection of top spots in the midst of Central Jakarta, one of the most popular sections of the nation’s capital.
Located inside the Hotel Indonesia Kempinski Jakarta, Social House has generous portions for those who consider breakfast to be the most important meal of the day. In fact, some items on the breakfast menu can usually be shared between two people, like the ‘Convicts’ Breakfast’, which consists of eggs, beef brisket, bacon and semi-dried tomatoes. On weekends and holidays, the breakfast menu is available right through the day.

The health food fanatics among you need not despair. Jakarta too seems to have caught the healthy eating bug, and Burgreens is a leading restaurant in this space. Their range of breakfast and brunch options include things like sweet potato chips, veggie burgers, chickpeas hummus and a lot more, complemented by their range of healthy and tasty juices. Even those who aren’t big fans of vegetarian meals will find the food full of flavor and fantastic for starting a day of sightseeing in the city center.
