We trekked all the way to Dempsey for a Sunday brunch treat and boy, the food was surprisingly ... mediocre. This is a Grocer! They have a killer cheese room! Brunch here always used to be a pretty wow experience! It would not be an exaggeration to say their brunch LOOKED a lot like airline food and kinda tasted like... More

if you've about had your fill of Dim Sum and Curry, this is the place for you. Fantastic steak sandwich (Yep a broiled steak) with a roasted tomato and some kind of horseradish-deli mustard spread on two thick pieces of toasted sour dough bread. Great French fries. Service was just fine, in contrast to earlier reviews. The ambience is interesting...some... More

Well folks, let me begin with some context. I am celebrating my birthday. I am a regular - like every other weekend - customer and i would like a glass of Sancerre with my lunch. not available. Never mind, the pino gris will do. Em, also not available. Given that it sells bottles of wine and has a sister outlet... More

As many reviewers noted, Jones has gone backwards. Ownership has changed and the service level is bad (even for Singapore). Examples include; Drinks and food all coming at different times. A waitress so paranoid of dogs she could not serve outside with multiple dogs. No attention to check on whether your meal met expectations. Given they have recently introduced a... More

Jones sells high-quality and sometimes unusual groceries; cheeses are especially good. The eatery serves passable food - some dishes are OK, some downright terrible, like my $26 crabmeat with angel hair pasta, which was minuscule and the blandest dish I've had anywhere for as long as I could remember. Service is haphazard - largely absent, with a few waitresses specialising... More

Given that the store itself is well-stocked with lots of interesting foodstuffs and that side, anyway, appears reasonably well run, you might expect the breakfasts to be broadly, at least, in line with this. They're not. The bacon and eggs (dreadful, deep-fried streaky bacon) dish was pretty much cold, as was the other dish we ordered and the "hot" drinks... More

I like this place due to it's location and the quality of food and products they are selling. I like Dempsey Hill and usually go there on weekends for saturday breakfast or sunday brunch. Drinks menu is quiet good as well as food. I like buying cheese there as its very fresh. Last time we went there a waitress didn't... More

I have always loved Jones the Grocer as an Australian living in Singapore. They make a wonderful sandwich and ice-coffee. I mostly visit the Ion or Dempsey outlet. I went for my usual Ice Coffee with my family at the Ion outlet on Sunday 2nd November 2014. I waited for five minutes to be seated (it was not busy), the... More

Jones the Grocer is a convenient place for lunch. Parking is easy to get at Dempsey compared to Orchard Road. However being part of an Aussie group I did expect the service to be better, the coffee to be stronger (order double shot as it was weak) and the food to be a bit better (lunch and dinner in the...

The quiet Dempsey Hill location helps for this to be a good getaway place to have a nice breakfast away from the mobs. The ambience is great with its airy double volume ceilings and the Soho chic. The breakfast choices are good as is the coffee (tried the egg/bacon wraps and the pancakes). However the snarly, too-hip-for-you wait staff is... More
