Brunch at Baker and Cook, Dempsey

Despite located in the heart of Singapore, Dempsey is a chore to go especially if you don't own a car. In fact, we haven't been to Dempsey more than twice since we had our car since November 2022. So there was on public holiday, Lady M and I were racking our heads where to bring the children to. Probably somewhere outdoors since they had their fair share of shopping malls already during the weekends. And Dempsey came to mind.
Baker and Cook has a heck lot of outlets spread across Singapore, but the Dempsey outlet is probably one of the newer ones with a play area set amidst the greenery of Dempsey's Loewen area. We arrived there during noon time, the sun was blazing hot with the occasional cool breeze. Kids were running and playing ball at the play area, but I was complaining because I sweat real easy. Aside from their indoor seating, there's alfresco dining under their tents and fairy lights. I can already imagine myself coming back in the evening for a beer.

Thank God that the children were still asleep so Lady M and I could enjoy some couple time.
To be honest, the menu isn't crazy extensive with just a few selection under each category but it has the standard brunch affair such as the usual eggs and pancakes. However, it has a wide pizza and burger selection, thanks to the tie-up with Plank Sourdough Pizza and Mo & Jo. Lady M got their Big Breakfast with Sourdough (S$28) with the usual sauteed mushrooms, truffle potatoes, salad, sourdough and eggs of your choice - and (me) being a scrambled egg lover - this wasn't a difficult choice.
Oh before I continue, did I mention that the pricing are NETT? Meaning that there are NO SERVICE CHARGE and GST.
I had the Jo Burger (S$23), a juicy medium beef patty paired with cheddar and caramelised onions can't go wrong. I added the Sweet Potato Fries (S$5), which was a huge hit with our children. Even our 1-yo Emmanuel was munching one after another. Talking about burgers, who actually used utensils to eat them?
We got the Chicken Tenders (S$12) for Olivia - crispy on the outside and tender inside, she downed a few with some lovely tangy ketchup. It also came with an ample serving of her all-time favorite: a generous portion of golden, crispy fries. Yum.
I mean, look at this face. Pure enjoyment.
If you're a brunch enthusiast or just love pizzas and burgers, Baker and Cook at Dempsey has got you covered. The best thing for parents is that we can see our children playing just beside. There's a swing and slide to keep them entertained for an hour or so.
