Dimbulah Coffee – Desserts at their CHIJMES outlet

In the sheltered space of CHIJMES on Victoria Street, I heard soothing music waft through the air and my search for the music led me to Dimbulah Coffee. This Australian coffee chain has a bistro in CHIJMES located around a spacious corner. It has indoor and outdoor seating which is quite appealing. The warm-lit interiors with tall glass panels coupled with a laid back vibe make it an ideal place for catching up with friends. In terms of their main course offerings, there are very few options for vegetarians (especially if you don’t eat eggs). However, we were there for desserts, hence the focus in this post is mainly on satiating your sweet tooth.

The Orders
After dinner, one generally craves desserts, so we were happy to see the sweet offerings that Dimbulah Coffee had on their menu.

Some desserts are worth the extra calories just for the experience. We ordered the ‘Sticky Date Pudding’ as were in the mood for a rich dessert. The warm pudding was rightly moist and rested on top of a smooth date sauce. The generous scoop of vanilla ice cream on top definitely served the purpose of bringing the whole dessert together by adding to the dense sweetness. For now, I can safely say that it is the best sticky date pudding that I have had in Singapore. Highly recommended.

Dimbulah is popular for its signature coffees crafted with Arabica beans which offer caramel notes and a lingering taste on the palate. The ‘Affogato Plain’ ended up being a nice selection since it served the dual purpose of having ice cream from a coffee cup. The slight bitter note of the coffee did not overpower the scoop of vanilla ice cream and brought out the contrast in taste distinctly.

We also ordered the ‘Crème brûlée’ which had a rich custard base topped with a layer of perfectly burnt caramel. The crispy, burnt sugar layer along with the slight hint of vanilla in every mouthful made it a deliciously decadent sweet dish.

Overall, Dimbulah Coffee is a must-visit if you are fan of coffee or desserts.
