Awesome coffee at great prices. Wide selection of tea. Love the moscato. Brunch has great food too. The outdoor seating is pretty nice at night.

I had wanted to go for the breakfast menu but was late, so I ended up trying their lunch menu. There was not much options compared to their breakfast menu. The service was also lacklustred as I had to walk up to them to make an order and get my bill. As expected from the poor lunch selection, the food... More

We came here for a casual lunch with two pre-schoolers. The service was really fast - they actually brought the kids food first which was great. All the food was fresh and well cooked. It is quite bustling which is great if you come with a family but wouldn't be good if you were after something quieter.

My husband and I stopped in this cafe for coffee and tea. It reminds me of a Starbucks, a chain coffee shop. I wouldn't go out of my way to visit this place. If you happen to be close by and want a coffee and there isn't a better option, then this is probably a good place. Nothing special and... More

I like going to dempsey hill. Easy to park, close to home, good atmosphere and plenty of choice. Food at Jones is good. The menu is not complicated but decent variety. When I was a kid and bored of playing long games of chess with my brother, we used to switch to suicide chess. Idea being you play to lose.... More

On my past 2 visits the service & food has definitely gone downhill. This week it was cold coffee & cold french toast, which didn't look appetizing - it looked as though the creme fraiche & berries had just been slopped on top. On the previous visit the coffee was cold & portions alot smaller than before & less tasty... More

What is going on with Dempsey? Seems all the restaurants are going downhill! Ok so here we go....waited 15 mins for a table (even through the restaurant was only half full) as the staff were too busy to show us to a table. When I got there, I waited patiently for 20 minutes to order a simple coffee. I looked... More

The shared platters are excellent. The dishes imaginative and very tasty. My favourite place for lunch and then the temptation of buying wonderful bread, cheese and charcuterie to take home.
