The place is quite large with four joglo in it. I think the place is cool for a kind of family gathering, reunion, and the like. Parking is also quite extensive. Here there are toilets and prayer rooms. So, you can break the fast together~
Prambanan Coffee Wedang is open every day from 10:00 to 21:30. But it is suggested that if you want to have a beautiful way of enjoying coffee, come around 3:00 PM until sunset, so you can have coffee while watching the sunset.
Besides coffee, the food and snacks that are sold here are still traditional. Some of the foods recommended at Prambanan Coffee Shop are chicken rice and sour vegetables, tempeh garit, garang tamarind, boiled cassava, various satay, and others

The food menu that is worth trying is the Kecombrang Chicken Shrimp typical of Bali. The rice menu with side dishes of shredded chicken, kecombrang, megono vegetables, and anchovy is so delicious and has become one of JiwaJawi’s favorite menus.
