Bernard raved about this place being one of the nicest cafes he has ever been with one of the best truffle fries. so we decided we HAD to go check it out. Finally got the chance to do so on the long National Day weekend.
Nestled in a little corner in Tiong Bahru, The Dispensary wasn’t hard to locate. It certainly caught my eyes for it’s unique concept and design. Is this yet another overhyped cafe or will it surprise us?
I love how the area has grown to become – a chic, hippy place which once used to be an old neighbourhood. It’s double-storied. You basically order downstairs and they deliver your items upstairs once it’s ready.
The sitting area upstairs is divided into 3 main areas, two being indoors, and one is an outdoor porch (non air-conditioned). It was closed on the day we visited. Not sure if that’s going to be the case from now.
Pricing was quite standard, though I did think $7.50 for a mocha was pretty expensive. I wouldn’t rave about any cafe food as it’s more of the ambience people are going for.
Enjoyed our afternoon there but no compelling need to visit again.
