Description: This is a little cafe about 5 minutes walk from Hotel Carolina, Tuk Tuk, Samosir, Indonesia. It was the highlight of my recent trip to Lake Toba (apart from the lake) and deserves some publicity. Doesn't have a website.

Delicious food, halarious lady! And cheap Bacardi :-) all adds up to an awesome evening! I had stuffed tofu and rice which was divine. A piña colada which was very good and if ever around toba again I will make a point of stopping again!

You should definitely visit Julietti on you visit to Toba for a great plate of food, good conversation, and an pleasant environment.

The food is excellent. Julietti's company is particularly pleasant as her English comprehension is among the best in Toba and her attitude is always great.

Furthermore, on most nights if you attend around 8 to 9 p.m., you will hear the men across the road at the local bar start into folk harmonies which are really good. Other times, Julietti will fill in the music with her own singing.

Today's Cafe is an experience you will fondly remember. Only small-4 or 5 tables and the kitchen is in full view from the dining area which is fantastic, as the proprietor , Juliette, is either talking ,telling you what ingredients she is using or singing.

Juliette's positive fun filled attitude to life is a superb recipe for the food for your soul. You will leave her restaurant more than satisfied. The food was delicious, fresh and interesting.
