“A Beautiful Place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013 via mobile

The coffee is awesome, Pak Apek's family is super nice and any time I have visitors or volunteers come through, we take them here. It's across from the Hindu Pajak and really is just "a hole in the wall", but through which you can see some of the better things about Medan. Pak Aneh makes a mean martabak in the window, and it's not uncommon to see a Porshe parked outside despite the location. People who know Medan know what an absolute gem this place is. If you miss this, you missed out on a solid place that makes Medan survivable. Excellent!

“best coffee in Medan..n the most expensive in its class”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

Do not be beguiled by its facade, located just infront of the Hindu market. some would have missed it completely. You would have thought it is just a small, old shop, selling some cheap coffee. Just look a little closer again at the customers in the shop! The place is always full in the morning. Most of the time, you would have to share table with strangers..oops, socialites of Medan..This is the den of those tycoons and group of businessmen gathering for breakfast in the morning. ooh, but nevermind them..the coffee is really goood with the best aroma of Sumatran coffee..no wonder, those socialites and businessman prefer to sit here, rather than Starbucks.
Of course, if you are tourist, you wouldn't feel that Rp12,000 for a serving of egg is expensive, or even a Rp16,000 cup of coffeee, but to locals, with Rp16,000, they can get a bowl of noodles with chicken on it

Nice coffee and boiled eggs. After that I took 15 friends walking around the city for 2 km at noon and nobody felt tired and complaining
