Disorganised at Dempsey

My wife vistited spontaneously with two friends visiting from the UK on Monday lunchtime last week as both the restaurants we had previously eaten at on the hill were closed. Everyone ordered their drinks only to be told by another waiter that they had run out of lime for the lime sodas. Their... read more

The food is good for a cafe. The service is consistently atrocious. Order breakfast and you'll be assured of getting your coffee after you've finished eating. Always. Several of their shops have closed, I wouldn't be surprised if this one was next. Why do I come back? Because sadly it's one of the only breakfast places open at 8:00.

I was quickly shuffled to my table while at the queue. However, the waiter seated us next to a plant so close to nature. Ordering our breakfast was prompt. The ambience is fantastic with the wide array of shelve merchandise. This place reminds me so much of Australia. Especially the plant.

No point to make a list of unsatisfactory event happened during my visit. Poor service attitude, food just no worth the price. Just stay away.

The concept store reminds me of New York. You will find a large selection of high end and imported goods (cheese, hams, wines). I dine here with my friends. Everything was excellent: the salad, the power juice, burgers, steak, fries and pasta... we enjoy our dinner and had a very good time here. A nice way to end a perfect... More

I have been a regular for the past three years, but not any more. I ordered a carrot and celery juice which arrived in a glass whose contents were only 2 thirds full, and consisted mostly of ice. For $6++ dollars it tasted so watered down it was hard to tell what I'd been served. I queried the waitress and... More

Went to Jones the Grocer for the first time last week after hearing many favourable reviews about it. I had the steak sandwich which was pretty good; their steak was really tender and juicy enough :) Recommended!

The big bonus is free parking; as long as you don't come during peak hours. I've whiled a way several hours here catching up with friends and the service is impeccable. The coffee is better than many places in Singapore and the food, whether it be the cakes or a more substantial meal, is good. The only caution I would... More

Disappointed as we were strongly encouraged to sit outside (as cleaning was taking place inside), salad portion was very small and we were over charged (supposedly a till error) on the bill (when raised with staff, money was refunded but with no apology).
