When I found out the original toko Oen is only at semarang, I urged to visit this place. I ordered poffertjes with ice cream for my day visit. The ambience is nice, the service is also good.

Toko Oen is a traditional café/restaurant basically unchanged over its 80 year existence. The tradtional atmosphere itself is already a reason to visit this place. Apart from a nice menu including some uncommon dishes like huzarensalade, bitterballen, pork saté and uitsmijter, this place also sells a wide assortment of cookies, many dating from the Dutch colonial times.

A unique place in an old dutch building. And the best poffertjes in town. I love all the snacks they have here. Dont forget to order an ice cream also. For me, its a hangout place instead of a restaurant. And i love being there

This place is an historic place from the colonial days. The interior shows it and the menu too. Some old Dutch dishes mix with Indonesian food. The food itself is not of great culinary value. The service is also average. So only the ambiance is what remains and what you will remember.

This restaurant is the history of semarang in its own right... it preserves the building and also the culinary heritage... I tastes the food which my parents and grand parents tasted in their youth and it is just amazingly good... i love the huzaren sla they served because it tasted just the way i tasted huzaren sla in my childhood...

One of the oldest restaurant in Semarang, serving ice cream as its specialty. Nice ambience, good service and tasty ice cream. They also have good original poffertjes that must have tried.
