Among the earliest of the major coffee franchises in Singapore, Dôme Cafe has flown relatively under the radar, unlike its competitors which are now everywhere. Thus, Dôme Cafe still retains its chic executive feel, and with its premium fresh roasted Italian style coffee and revamped menu, stand apart as a coffee haven of choice.

Ambience at Dôme Cafe is casual and comfortable, with faux Italian Renaissance decor that lends a touch of class. Colours of marble, green and wood, along with a high ceiling, and natural lighting, give a welcoming, relaxing vibe. However, I felt the arm rests on the chairs were a little short, and rather uncomfortable.

Service at Dôme Cafe is friendly, and order as served quickly. Staff are relatively knowledgable on the menu and coffee, but I find it odd that Dôme Cafe doesn't accept some brands of debit cards. I like that they provide a selection of current magazines for browsing, and that staff can engage you in conversation.

Food at Dôme Cafe is Western style, mostly Italian or American cuisine. With a focus on easy to prepare, beautifully plated dishes, Dôme Cafe food involves mostly salads, soups, sandwiches, pasta, and desserts. Portions are slightly large for one person, but prices are affordable for a cafe, an average main course costs less than SGD $20 per person. While creative in the use of ingredients, the taste and execution of dishes is sometimes lacking.


The Club Sandwich (SGD $14) is large enough for 2 people, and is packed with fresh lettuce, tomatoes, sliced chicken, and an egg omelette, topped with mayonnaise between 3 layers of toasted white bread. Served with a salsa and potato chips, this is a satisfiying comfort meal, great as a snack or as a main course!

I always felt Dôme Cafe has among the better iced coffees around, that is both refreshing and thirst quenching. The Iced Mocha (SGD $5.50) and Iced Latte (SGD $5.50) are perfect for hot days, with or without a scoop of gelato ice cream!

The Grilled Porcini Mushroom Chicken (SGD $16.50) features 3 pieces of grilled boneless chicken thigh, on red skin potato and eggplant / aubergine ragout, with a porcini mushroom sauce. I like the meaty and moist chicken, and the earthy mushroom sauce and crisp, crunchy mushroom strips. But the ragout was too oily, and made the plate messy, causing the potatoes to become oil soaked as well.
