Old world charm

Great food n place, both are authentic in old world/ colonial style. The service is OK but there's still room for improvement.

They also serve traditional cookies and excellent ice cream. As i remembered, their steak is good, but the last time im back the sauce isnt the same anymore. I guess they change their sauce-recipe. They still maintaining the old concept, Old building in the Old City. Good for tourists. MY fave is poffertjes and kattetonge (white bread egg).

'Toko Oen' was open in 1936 in Semarang. You simply must visit this place if you're a tourist. This place is a landmark in Semarang and it used to be a popular place for Dutch people during their colonisation in Indonesia. Please enjoy the inheritance in this place, not the food.

I love to see how the owner family keep this restaurant with its original shape. It's really nice to see the old clock, to listen to old Indonesian song, to feel the atmosphere while eat nasi goreng and taste the legend ice cream for lunch.

I have been to this bakery on December 2014. This place was nice and old fashioned which make it special. But it was hard to find a seat inside and very crowded.

I visit with family. We just try ice cream and some cookies.. The taste is good. Nice ambience. Classic decoration inside the restaurant. Just an input for the management, may need to make the windows and the area surounding the restaurant cleaner.
