The name "kopi" may be cryptic, and the sourcing from Sumatra (note the small print) may seem none too special for a coffee shop. The artwork, however — a rendering of the world's most expansive archipelago, albeit compressed and naively drawn — pegs this as an Indonesian-owned operation. Kopi Kopi (literally "coffee coffee") employs fair-trade beans from back home that are roasted here in New York, though this days-old business has yet to publish a menu of coffee varietals.

An Indonesian prepared-food menu has begun to shape up, however. It lists chicken soup, beef and chicken satay, the salad called rujak, and nasi uduk, a dish of coconutty rice served with marinated beef. Savory and sweet pastries include wingko Babat ($1.50), a Javanese cake made from glutinous rice and coconut. Mine was still warm.
