This place is great for families thanks to the laid back atmosphere; great, simple food and reasonable prices. Never been at night so I can't comment on the dinner menu but it's a perfect spot for brunch.

We eat here for the first time when there was a National Day special two course offer. Good quality food, portion sizes, service and ambience for a good price.

Great breakfast....almost a 'full' English! A full English needs baked beans & black pudding! Only joking....we had a great breakfast in good setting. Typically Dempsey.

I went to this place with a long lost friend ;-) which apparently now living just a few blocks from my place in Singapore. We choose the place as both of us can actually walk to the place. It was my first visit ( despite its vicinity to my place ) Given the name "Grocer", I thought I would find... More

Amongst the crowd of expats on Dempsey Hill craving for a little bit of home but loving Singapore, Jones ticks a couple of boxes. One, great coffee. Two, great scrambled eggs. Fluffy and creamy. Three, newspapers and free wi fi. Enjoy.

Visiting from England it was quite a treat to collect a take away breakfast. We bought treats for our relations with Belvoir cordial and specialist tea bags just like home. We ordered Eggs Benedict with scrumptious hollandaise sauce to take away and they didn`t disappoint. Thank you.

The place looks actually good and has this old style decoration that says: "our food and products will be made by people who care using the proper quality ingredient". The result unfortunately is disappointing, not particularly tasty and quite overpriced in the end. We tried a couple of typical dishes - salad, burger, ... and it ranged from "poor" to... More

As an Australian I wanted to like Jones at Dempsey Hill and have been 5 times for breakfast over the last year. This is my last time - the staff stand around chatting while the tables remain unserved. The food and coffee is almost always cold by the time it reaches you obviously having sat on a counter in the... More

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.
