Good ice cream traditional taste, good place to just relax in night time, but be careful when ask the hotel to find taxi in the street because the taxi driver will ask whether we ask restaurant to call the taxi and if we say yes then the taxi will charge minimum order payment.

Opens from 8am till 11pm. Just across from Tjong A Fie's Mansion.

Good place to stop and enjoy the old time atmosphere: while watch ing the locals double and triple park (seems they quite revere the cakes here) creating astounding traffic jams and
noise.

Chinese, Indonesian and European dishes. We had a lime juice, iced coffee, gado gado and a coconut tartlet. Bill was 50, 000.

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!
