Dôme Cafe is a European-inspired coffeeshop franchise that originated in Australia, and I’m pretty sure most of you have been seeing several of these outlets peppered all over town. Sometime last week I caught up with my best friend, Chuying, over a meal at Dôme’s new Plaza Singapura outlet (over at the new PS wing), and we shared more than just food, but also the usual laughter and quality time together. 🙂
For a commercialized F&B chain outlet, I thought the ambiance here was great (well of course, apart from the fact that most of us diners were shabbily decked in sandals and shorts like any typical Singaporean lOl). Service was very attentive and the staff were welcoming and courteous. Loved it.
Dôme offers more than simply coffee and drinks and desserts, as they also have an impressive variety of various mains, salads, pastas, soups and finger foods – all of them at fairly reasonable prices.
The meat-lover Chuying obviously had to have their Beef Lasagna (I have a really good story about this dish lol!), which turned out to be not much to her liking, so I ended up finishing almost half of her food! Nothing really special here, we both thought this was just okay.
I had to stare long and real hard at the menu before deciding on loading up on carbs in the form of their Crayfish and Crab Claw Meat Pasta. This was basically a marinara spaghetti with little shreds of crab meat here and there, lavishly topped with a small crayfish and some alfafa sprouts. Honestly, we both thought this was very satisfying!
The Chorizo Pizza (maybe simply all of them pizzas) is surely worth a miss. This was dry and bready with skimpy toppings – fell completely flat for me even at the first look. Save the money to order a couple of desserts instead!
Though there were a couple of hits and misses in terms of the food, the dining experience in general was definitely pleasant, and I think Dôme Cafe in Plaza Singapura makes a rather cozy place to sit down for a coffee or meal with family or friends for convenience’s sake.
