Lifestyle: House at Dempsey’s Weekday Vintage High Tea Buffet

Thinking of taking a one-day breather off work but not quite sure where to go?

If you love having the best of both the savory and dessert worlds, and prefer being close to nature, then the HOUSE at Dempsey’s Vintage High Tea Buffet will meet your weekday chill out needs.

For just $22, indulge in a spread of unique sweet delights spread out on a long table with pretty and whimsical decorations. Females especially will feel like they’ve walked into a wonderland. Lemon pistachio cake, chai chocolate cake and many more delights are served as quickly as they are taken so be sure to act fast. We particularly loved one Cranberry mousse that had a surprising Earl Grey taste within.

There are also assorted savory appetizers like mini burgers, pecan pies and bread that will fill even the biggest stomachs. Skinny pizzas come in all sorts of flavors and because these dishes are usually unnamed, there is a thrill when one picks the food without knowing what it is and finds it delicious. One of our favorites include a pizza spread with only ham and cranberry. The result was a delightful mix of sweet and salty all at one go.

Apart from the food, what we also love about this 17,000 square feet eatery, decorated with antique typewriters and wooden old school furniture is its juxtaposition of the old and new, wild and modern. Located just beside the Dempsey Hill, we had a great afternoon just sitting beside the window looking out at the greenery. Even when it started to drizzle midway, all one feels is still tranquility.
