A Vintage Tea Party – HOUSE @ Dempsey

4 Comments

My SPArty pals and I went to HOUSE @ Dempsey yesterday for their Vintage Tea Party which happens every Thursday and Friday, 3 to 5.30pm. Dempsey is one of those areas in Singapore I don’t visit often. Too inconvenient for me if I’m not driving. I love the company of my friends and especially my gal pals, so exploring new eateries is always fun when you have the right company.

When we were there, it seemed like many others had the same idea too. It was practically full and the buffet line was constantly crowded. The patrons were a diverse lot. Some were like us – gal pals gathering and gossiping (but a wide age range as there were groups of older ladies in their 50s-60s and some younger girls who looked like they were in their early to mid-20s), there were also couples, at least 2 tables with push-prams and babies, as well as some smaller all-male tables too.

There was good spread of savouries and sweets. I would have loved to have a few more savoury vegetarian options though the truffle mushrooms and cheese platter were yummy. Good thing for me, I love sweets – chocolate cupcakes, cookies, puddings, cheesecakes – bring them all on! For S$22++ per person, I’d say it’s pretty good. I give it a 7.5/10 for ambience, comfort and the tasty options!

Verdict from my friends:

Pixiedub 8/10 “Everything I ate was really yummy! From the burgers to the cakes…”

Cherry 8/10 “I wish there was a wider variety of teas.”

Linda 9/10 “I just wish there was better service.”

Lil Nat 9/10 (actually secretly 10/10 but she didn’t want to look too enthusiastic) “I LOVE CHEEEEESE!”

I left Singapore for the US of A in 2013 and now live in Las Vegas with my indie game dev husband and our son Gummi Gumdrop. I am also probably much older than you think I am.

  1. Ohmy. I’ve always wanted to try this! I was at House with my best friend for dinner that day and I saw their advert for high tea 🙂 Too bad I’m starting my new year of university tomorrow so I can’t go down anymore. But thanks! I’m living vicariously through this photos 😉

  2. That looks nice! I am so rarely in Dempsey so guess I miss out on hidden treats! :S Might have to give it a try at some time! 🙂

  3. Heya! this is Cheryl from Spa Esprit Group, we have recently revamped our Vintage High Tea range (expect better products and more variety :)). Price is now $30++ but if you come dressed to the 1920s, you get an instant 10% off!

    Just thought we should let you know. Thank you!
