About Batavia Home & Cafe

Batavia Home was founded in 2004 by Widya Pertusi who wanted to introduce her native country, Indonesia, and its wealth of culture to the United States. The home goods store offers high quality outdoor teak furniture from Java, modern upholstery collections from Montreal, unique serving pieces from the Philippines, gorgeous light fixtures from India, unique collections of painting and mirrors, and many other interesting home accessories from around the world.

Batavia Cafe was founded in 2010 as a way to enhance the Batavia Home shopping experience. Regular customers suggested Widya open a cafe since the space has an ideal dining environment and creates a European cafe-like atmosphere. The cafe’s menu and hours can be found at

Caring for the Environment

The employees of Batavia Home and Cafe strongly believe in preserving the earth's natural resources. Reclaimed teak wood is used for most of the cafe furnishings and the shop’s walls. Reclaimed teak is wood that has been recycled from old doors, pillars and walls with many pieces dating back to the 19th century. Batavia Cafe also makes a conscious decision to use products from fair trade suppliers, i.e. the coffees and teas served in the cafe.
