Our Origins

Batavia Cafe was originally conceived in 2004 as an eclectic furniture store founded by Widya Pertusi, who wanted to share the culture and craftsmanship of her native country, Indonesia.

The Growing Years

In 2010, we started to serve fine coffees, teas and pastries as a way to enhance customers' shopping experience. Gradually we evolved from our original concept and expanded our offerings to include fresh and healthy inspired lunch options such as nouveau salads, gourmet sandwiches and soups.

By spring 2013, we completed our transition from a furniture store to a full-on contemporary cafe with friendly service and a vibrant menu. We also started our popular catering services for local businesses and private parties. As the “buzz” grew and we saw a large influx of diners, we continued to augment our menu, modernize our systems and become the cutting-edge lunch destination that responded not only to popular trends in cuisine, but also reflected the tastes of our loyal customer-base and community-at-large.

Our Present and Future

As Summit’s premier breakfast and lunch destination point, we remain focused on homemade innovations for which we have become known. Breads are baked daily. All salads are freshly prepared with delicious proteins like our freshly roasted all-natural turkey. Homemade additions such as homemade Greek Yogurts, freshly squeezed orange juice and a revolving selection of daily prepared soups speak to our continued mission to provide our guests with a fresh dining experience that feels like home.

As we look ahead to celebrating our first decade serving YOU, our prized guests, let us know how we are doing. The future is certainly bright for Batavia Cafe-- and yes, the best is still yet to come!
