The Little House of Dreams and Ben & Jerry’s – nice place for a kid’s party at Dempsey


The Little House of Dreams and Ben & Jerry’s at Dempsey seem like a good place to host a children’s party. They are neighbours in Block 8 of Dempsey Hill. They have two separate entrances but once inside, their spaces are interconnected. The Little House of Dreams is a cafe which has been done up in a very cute way and some parts of it look like the inside of a doll’s house. With Ben & Jerry’s ice-cream available on demand, we think that the young and the young at heart will have a good time.

Honolulu Cafe Singapore – more than egg tarts

Honolulu Café at The Centrepoint

Honolulu Cafe has nothing to do with Hawaii, as far as we know. Honolulu Coffee Shop of Hong Kong is well known for its flaky egg tarts. When Honolulu Cafe Singapore opened in The Centrepoint, there were long queues to get into the cafe as well as to buy the famous egg tarts for takeaway. It may now be a good time to go to Honolulu Cafe for a meal as it is no longer trendy for the die-hard foodies to stand in line for egg tarts (now they are queueing for brown sugar milk tea). It is not too difficult to get a table in Honolulu Cafe now and it has a fairly extensive menu of interesting affordably priced items. There is much more to Honolulu Cafe than just egg tarts.
