For someone who’s goal is finding a good working spot, I can say Ruckerpark has it all. I was very impressed with the cafe and was questioning myself why I didn’t come there earlier (I work nearby that area everyday, that’s why I was questioning myself).
I saw big tables and long benches right after I came inside the cafe. They have good natural lighting from the shed above the table in the middle of the room, just perfect for studying (because most coffee shops have that dim light ambience, I was very happy about it). When I looked closely to the table, they have a row full of electric sockets in the middle of the table; a literal explanation for working heaven on earth.
Looking around, you can spot the display for several ‘hip’ brands such as Supreme, Nike, Wacko Maria, etc. I saw the items have price on it so I assume those are actually for sale. When I was there for 7 hours (yes I was there for so long), I saw that the display area was one of the most popular spot in the cafe for taking ootd pictures.
Ah, they do have the spacey outdoor area as well, so if you are smoker or vape-er (?) you may order your coffee and sit outside.
Let’s talk about the internet. When I said they have fast internet, I do really meant it. When I come to a coffee shop, I always check their wifi speed, and Ruckerpark was one of the fastest one in Bandung. When I checked, the download speed was at 20mbps rate while their upload speed was 17mbps; and I came on weekend so…not bad right? I had no problem studying (and downloading movie kkk) there.
I ordered their “Magic” (IDR 33K) randomly (I am a coffee noob who always pick coffee randomly at all time). The barista said that their magic uses 2 espresso shots (if I’m not mistaken), I chose it simply because I’ve had a bad headache at that time and thought I needed something ‘strong’ to cure my headache. When I tasted the coffee, I can say that I really love the taste. The mixture of the coffee bitterness and the foam were just perfect, one of the best I’ve tried so far. I was ecstatic up until my stomach started to act; suddenly I’ve got this acid reflux reaction. As I said, I am a noob haha, but even though I didn’t manage to finished my coffee, I will totally recommend their magic if you have no ulcer problem like I do.
I didn’t try any of their food because I usually eat before I go to a cafe. But many review says they have delish yet expensive foods there.
The place was very conducive for working because it wasn’t noisy and people there mostly were working with their laptop of taking pictures. I was there from 4PM – 11PM, the natural lighting changed into neon light ambience after the sun set. I prefer and study there when it is still bright but the evening ambience wasn’t so bad actually; I was still able to read and write just fine. Anyway it got pretty chilly after 7 even though the doors were closed I don’t know why, I guess it was the wind tunnel?
Their opening hours is fantastic too, I love working late so I am so happy that they closed at midnight (on weekend). Overall, I enjoyed my study time there and can’t wait to pay their cafe another visit very soon!
