My favorite is chocolate and cheese and its a must to buy. You can get it from the airport to avoid any hussle traffic. Price is the same as in town and definitely fresh because they have daily delivery

meranti was delicious cake. So many variant roll cake (chocolate, mocca, pinaple, cheese, blueberry or combination 2 taste), etc. But they need improvement in service. A few times i came to the store, crowded always. So better to make a call to order before you come.....

Meranti swiss roll is the best in medan, I love the cheese one, but also like the moka n blueberry... When i come to this place I would always buy the cream puffs (kue sus)... Its better than the cream puffs I've tasted in a 5 star hotels in medan. Highly recommended.
