I've been here a few times and had meetings over coffee. They do quite a good roast and their cakes are delicious. Must try.

Having visited before and enjoyed it my husband and I went for coffee and a snack. The coffee was excellent and the service was good, but the chicken and avocado salad was very disappointing, masses of cabbage salad, hardly any avocado or chicken and priced...at S$18, a rip-off. The club sandwich took 40 minutes to arrive despite the cafe being only a third full. And why is there a charge of S$0.50 made for a glass of cold water?? Will not be going back after this experience.More

It was a trip meant to get my caffeine fix and maybe a nice cake. The place has changed, new menu....boring. Service is now poor, food is mediocre, coffee is still fragrant and nice. This place is now quite empty on a public holiday which...is surprising. I can attribute to a few things 1) prices has gone up. 2) food choices have reduced. 3) service is not as good and friendly as it used to. 4) other options around Dempsey. Sad to see an icon where i used to enjoy the fragrant coffee now at this state.More

I visited Dome with my husband for dinner and was disappointed with the quality of food and the prices charged. I had a pizza with some truffle oil, and while it was OK, I found it overpriced. In fact, I find the whole of dempsey...hill extremely overhyped-it doesn't have the ambience, character or friendliness that places in Orchard Road have. The entire neighbourhood shuts down early, so if you want dinner at 10pm ,it may not be possible. Anyway, if you visit this place, be ready to pay high prices for food you could get elsewhere for a cheaper rate.More

This is how inviting Dome at Dempsey Hill appears at their deck. Tables are all dirty/not wiped down, no menus ... just empty. Went somewhere else as a result.

First visit here but not sure if I'd be back again as it wasn't anything impressive. Several items on the menu were unavailable and server did not inform beforehand, until I had to reorder again and again....

Stopped in here for a quick lunch with my Wife. Excellent, fast service, very tasty food and a pleasant cafe atmosphere! We'll be back here with the kids for a few Saturday lunches, I'm sure!

Good food and good coffee. Free parking for driver, so no worries about parking fee and fines. Must try is the coffee and the steak.

Just passed by Dome when we were at IMM mall. As one of my friend a bit hungry, so we decided to try this cafe. We ordered chicken pie, carrot cake, chocolate muffin and peppermint tea. All are ok, but we love the carrot cake...the most. It is very moist! As for the chocolate muffin, i like it! They heat it for us before. So, it is so soft and moist, a bit like a molten lava texture. Love it!More

We haven't come for a while, didn't have a good experience as they can't cope with big crowd. The service is lousy and waiting time is long.

Stopped going to Dome for almost a year, as the food quality had deteriorated over the years. So it was a pleasant surprise to find a new improved menu and food quality, when we went there 3 days ago. Better tasting food. Ambience great as...always.More

While Dome continues to produce interesting menus, and you do want to try all their dishes, somehow it can't shake off its image as a coffeeshop. A couple of recent meals at their Dempsey outlet reiterated this. The place has become a fallback place for...us to go to whenever nearby outlets are full (perhaps it is not a good sign that you can always get a table at the Dome). Despite not being very busy, the service remains a bit weak. Some of the food is quite decent (such as their their platter of appetisers), but the all-day breakfast type plates are worth a miss.More

Dined here yesterday for breakfast. The menu consist of classic breakfast dishes like Toasts, Eggs Benedict, big breakfast, muesli and fruits with yougurt. I ordered raisins toasts with preserves and butter, ginger latte and Lychee rose tea The raisins toasts were thick, well toasted and...fluffy. The portion was just nice but you may order sauteed mushrooms, eggs or hash browns for additional charges if you want it make a complete meal. The ginger latte was kinda unique but the ginger flavour was so strong that I couldn't taste or smell the coffee. The lychee and rose tea was good too with a strong floral and fruity taste. Overall, the food was just average and the price was reasonable.More
