This would be easily one of my favourites when it comes to nostalgic-themed cafes. What used to be located within the grounds of The Dispensary was a Chinese Medicine Hall, and The Dispensary beautifully combines that theme with the cafe by incorporating the cafe into the shop space rather than vice versa (which a lot of cafes does these days). A lot of detail can be seen that shows the amount of effort in preserving the shop's past; the old Chinese medicine cabinets, the mirror with Chinese characters and the outdoor facade all pays tribute to its past. While The Dispensary does serves all-day brunches and sandwiches, go for their cakes; especially the sliced ones since it is what they are known for. Feeling stuffed? Takeaway some of the cupcakes instead, which gives you a rough gauge on what to expect for their sliced cakes as well.
