I have to give them props for the presentation of this dish. Made using a heritage recipe, the curry had a unique taste that's different from the usual hainanese, nonya or asaam curry that I'm familiar with. Savoury and spicy, the curry went very well with the barramundi that was fresh and fork tender. Toasted breadsticks were served with it and were very crisp though I wished they were soft bread sticks so I could soak them into the delectable curry.

Rather than the usual suspects of a Mediterranean dish, the platter was a combo of dips and chutneys that highlighted flavours of Indian cuisines like the coconut chutney, butter tofu dip (similar to that of butter chicken) and curry-infused couscous filled with cashews and raisins. And instead of pita bread, warm and fluffy sourdough naans were served as a pairing.

Just like a fresh bounty chocolate. Chocolate inside and coconut on the outside.

Must try when at this Cafe.

Great cafe in the middle of Dempsey Hill. Opens up at 8 which makes for a perfect post run cafe.

Staff is clueless and it's a nightmare to order food. Once you get past that, then it's all good.

Affogato coffee is brilliant, latte is also nice. The vibe and style of the cafe is worth a visit. Must try

Lovely cafe and superb coffee ☕

Lamb roll is filling and full of flavor. I tried it early morning at 8,so a bit heavy flavors for me. It's an evening snack.

Must try this place once

Great place with beautiful ambience and vibe.

The Quiche however was not so good. Salmon was non-existant and so were the flavors.

This dish is avoidable.

Beautiful place, lovely decor and ambience.

Food is ordinary, specially this pie is nothing special.

The one item that immediately caught our eye (and palate) is The Queen’s Conserve ($16), a Kouign Amann pastry that is sandwiching a scoop of lavender ice cream and topped with dollops of passionfruit curd. Everything in this dessert ticked the right boxes, from the buttery pastry to the tanginess of the passionfruit, complemented by the fragrant lavender ice cream.

We were there to celebrate a birthday and instead of ordering a few ala carte dishes, we opted for the ‘Taste of Candlenut’ January menu ($68++ per pax) which comprises of tasting portions of several signature dishes of the restaurant.

We started off with a trio of small bites from kueh pie tee to itek sioh on fried mantou to charcoal grilled Westholm wagyu beef satay. Unfortunately, the dining experience started off on the wrong footing as one of the fried mantous contained duck bones from the pulled braised duck meat, which we proceeded to send it back to the kitchen. The mains arrived shortly after and the bakwan kepiting soup (blue swimmer crab chicken tofu balls in chicken broth), sayur Nangka kerabu (young jackfruit salad) and buah keluak sotong were very much enjoyable and the experience was truly redeemed by the care and concern from the staff from the horrifying encounter and the excellent showcase of desserts, red bean bandung and homemade nyonya kueh.

One of the newer cafes at Dempsey, Hathaway serves up modern Asian cuisine with strong local influences. Though prices were on the steeper side, we love their innovative dishes that integrates diverse cultures such as Indian and Peranakan into the usual cafe food, bringing something unique to the table.🤩 More than their brunch menu, we much preferred their mains, which were 'Ah Nya's Fish Curry'🐟 and 'Octopus Bakar and Sambal Udang'.🐙🦐 Both dishes were super flavourful and had an interesting twist to it such as the grilled octopus and sambal prawns were paired with charred polenta which suprisingly went well together! Also, a special mention to the octopus which was tender and not chewy at all!!😌

Also tried their 'The Queen's Conserve' which comprised of lavendar ice cream🍦 sandwiched between Kouign Amann but sad to say we were not impressed at all.😔 The Kouign Amann was hard and dry and didnt really go well together with the ice cream. Sad to have ended the meal on a low note, so I guess we'll just be sticking to the mains if we were to return in the future!😬

[Dishes: Sambal Four Heavenly Kings + Chincalok Omelette + Udang Sambal Petai + Blue Swimmer Crab Curry + Chef's Mum's Chicken Curry] [Dessert: Cendol Cream + Petite Kueh Kosui and Kueh Bingkah Platter + Kueh Salat]
There's nothing I can say that hasn't already been said, so I'll just say it anyway: superb and delectable and flavourful and amazing!!!! My favourite was definitely the Chef's Mum's Chicken Curry but the Blue Swimmer Crab Curry was a close second. The dessert was ALSO amazing and the Cendol Cream was so incredible.
