a friend says that this place is a local institution and indeed, her grandparents, parents and now she and her children eat there! this place uses the same oven to bake their cakes as they originally did in the 1900s!
other than their famous butter cream cakes, they serve dishes you could have breakfast, lunch or dinner.
there is an aircon area and outside (non air con)

even if you're not keen on buttery cakes, this place is worth a visit just because its a historical part of Medan... its like a step back in history in a nice cozy way over tea and chat :)

well, i think tip top can be called as a legendary restaurant in North Sumatra, as an old building lover I do admire it a lot, as for the food I can give it "AVERAGE" rating, i ordered ice cream and pancake, the ice cream was so so, but the pancake was a bit different as pancake today, it tasted crunchier than modern pancake today and of course thinner...what I don't like from this place was that the waiters who served us could smile at all as if they were having toothache!

Oldist style interior restaurant, very cozy, nice place to enjoy your time with the family...the restaurant already there since 1934....they have delicious steak and ice cream, yummy......try their chicken steak ...their location right in the city centre, at the old town area. You can make reservation first before coming, to choose your preference table and seat. The only problem maybe the parking area, to many guest make it hard to find car park.
