really love their ontbijtkoek and traditional ice cream. It's just like ragusa in Jakarta but there's something about oen that can't be replace by ragusa. toko oen is so cozy and homy. they provide some tables and chairs to sit which ragusa doesn't. entering toko oen makes me feel like I'm travelling through time using my time machine. It's just... More

The restaurant will open by 0930.. the old fashioned style will be shown when you enter inside ... the table, the chair and the outlook will tell you .... the meals for me is average but the ice cream taste good ... and you might wait for a little bit longer for the poffertjes ...

Located in the city center and easy to locate. The ambiance of this cafe is like the one found in Medan " TIP TOP" Food, cookies, cakes, ice cream are all old school... This cafe has been there since 1922!

This cafe is so unique for its architecture and interior setting. The cake showcase is made from wood, along with their old-style cookie jar. In one of the corner, there is an old grandfather clock. I like their egg bread (shortcake-like) for its simple sweet-eggy-soft bread and their aromatic speculaas. For its ice cream, I found its taste is just... More

Very old and traditional restaurant. Many tourists visit here because of it's location near Kota Lama, and it's history as Semarang's oldest restaurant. However the quality is going down, and it's not as clean as it used to be. Still gets crowded though. They sell a very nice selection of home made snacks and biscuits.

They still serve colonial menu, like beefsteak, pofffertjes, etc. But they also serve other menu, italian, european,chinese dan indonesian food. the place is clean and spacious. But the service is a little slow, I guess... More
