Located in a housing complex in Manyar Kertoarjo area, East Surabaya, Patera is a coffee shop that is quite unique among other coffee shops in the city. Compared to other coffee shops which are usually located in the center of the bustling city of Surabaya, Patera chooses a quieter area that fits to its calm ambience.
The residential area which Patera is located in has a quite number of intersections. Therefore, you have to be extra careful and pay close attention to the direction of the road. If you take the wrong path, then you have to go back a fairly far distance. Even so, you do not need to worry because Patera provides many signs at several points in the housing complex to direct and prevent visitors from getting lost on their way to Patera.
The ambience there is very suitable for those of you who are looking for a calm and quiet place to work or just want to be away from the city crowd. Patera serves quite a variety of menu, including coffee mocktails, non-coffee and coffee based drinks. While you are here, you should try some of their coffee mocktails because the taste is totally unique and rarely found in Surabaya.
