The Australian gourmet grocer has set up shop here, with Singapore's largest walk-in temperature-controlled cheese room, as well as an extensive deli and charcuterie, and roasted by Di Lorenzo in Sydney. Pick up something to cook at home, or sit down for a meal and see what the chefs whip up with the day's freshest ingredients.

Come here for the ambience!

I've seen quite a few bad reviews of this place. But came anyway because I was thinking a place this supposedly bad shouldn't be able to stay afloat all these years charging top dollar, could it?

I'm glad I gave this place a try. Came here with 3 other friends to pass a quiet slow afternoon. To be honest, they are rather pricey, but they have a large selection of wines and fresh cheeses to go with. The ceilings are so high that the ambience just relaxes you down easily for slow easy conversation. I didn't order the food because the pastas were all overpriced. But if you simply wish for a quiet afternoon with friends over good wine and cheese, this place is pretty much it.

What really goes in favour of this place is the view, besides that the food is so-so and expensive for what it is. It gets 'thumbs down', mainly due to the appallingly dismissive and slow service.
I was there yesterday late afetrnoon and asked for a glass of water, just after being seated and was told to get up and serve myself. It was around 3:20 pm with hardly any customers around. Pretty shocked and having been there many times in the past, I requested again to be served water at the table. The staff gave the same answer and said the rules changed a week ago and he refused to serve me water. Come on!!!

After, an order of 2 Piccolo Latte and an ice-tea took what seemed ages! So, I had to go inside and approach another staff to see to the order. It then came almost immediately.

Spend your money elsewhere, I agree with another reviewer 100%

Although I love this place for the atmosphere and coffee, every time I come I regret our choice as the service is so so slow. Jones is massively understaffed and the staff that are here are not managed so tables sit Uncleared for ages making the queues ridiculous. Once you sit down it dosnt get any better - ordering is nearly impossible and the food takes forever to come.

Eggs. They come in all shapes, sizes, colours and varieties: white, brown, free range, barn-laid, small, large and extra large. Some come with Omega 3, others with selenium and carrot. We makes sense of it all.
