Open Farm Community – Family-friendly Spot in Dempsey

We discovered this place through a friend two weeks ago. Went on a weekend morning and it was lovely with a large shaded sandpit, outdoor seating (with cool blowers thankfully!) and a cafe that opened at 11am.  Plenty of space set amidst lush greenery and a natural farm setting where the cafe/ restaurant grows their own produce. There was also a little kids boutique Tinydipity that sold a selection of clothes, accessories, toys. 

Brunch was great! Serving up the usual breakfast suspects (Eggs Benny, pancakes, toast and sandwiches, lattes, cold-pressed juices etc), but all the ingredients used were fresh – we felt like we had discovered a place we wanted to bring our friends back to.  I’ll let the photos do the talking. 

Open Farm Commmunity is at 130E Minden Road, Dempsey Village 


Bubu finds a wooden digger. He loves it!  We had to pry it out of his hands when we left 😦

Lovely decor outdoors with spanking new lounge chairs and a funky ping pong table set amidst lush farm greenery #wowicantbelievethisissingapore


At the Brunch table (still clutching the wooden digger) 

 Beautiful sunlit restaurant space, with high ceilings surrounded by glass windows.

Some of the fresh produce from the farm .    
Tinydipity (some cheeky kid rubbed out the Y) – cute little boutique selling fashion and knick knacks 

  We return to the sand pit with his own Digger (fortunately we did because we found the other wooden Digger broken in two and Bubu was really heartbroken that he couldn’t put it back together! 

Achievement unlocked! It’s his first time stepping willingly on to sand. The last few times we went on beach vacations, it was a real challenge getting him comfortable with the texture between his toes. He would cry and want to be picked up! 

Verdict: We love it and will be back next week! Note the indoor restaurant closes from 3-6pm and the outdoor cafe doesn’t serve food. They are brand new and still building a children’s playground which will come up next to the sandpit. It does get crowded, so do make a booking if you’re going on a weekend for brunch or lunch.
