Baker & Cook and Plank Sourdough Pizza have opened at Dempsey with a huge new playground space
As if Dempsey Hill weren’t already one of our fave places to head with kids, it’s just added to its spoils in a big way with the opening of a new Baker & Cook and Plank Sourdough Pizza at the corner of Loewen Road (in the space formerly occupied by MOCA)…and they’ve got a playground, a first for Baker & Cook!
On the playground you’ll find a bouncy swing, little treehouse, ship, and ride-ons, along with tonnes of green space perfect for running around and getting the wiggles out.
It’s part of the soon-to-open Core Collective, a family wellness hub that will also feature heaps of fitness classes and health/nutrition services along with even more swimming classes from an expanded Swish Swimming. The whole area is gorgeously green and lush, and we can see ourselves whiling away many a lazy Sunday morning there.
Swipe through to see what you can expect at this gorgeous new Baker & Cook location – perfect for your next playdate-cum-mama-coffee-catchup!

The playground is more geared toward slightly younger kids (though the sign says ages 2-12), but these rated most highly with our 5-year-old, perhaps because they’re great for imaginative play. The treehouse structure also features a small rock climbing ramp and ladder in the back.
Little ones are guaranteed to get a kick out of this unique feature, though we wish there was more than one!
We love that they’ve provided little soccer nets and a ball, which are perfect for older kids (or mini football nuts).
The little bouncy ride-ons almost seem reminiscent of the contemporary sculptures that formerly occupied the same green space. No matter how much sugar your kiddo has indulged with (and ours were pretty amped after a gorgeous pink strawberry, rose and pistachio doughnut!), there is a plenty of space for them to get the wiggles out.
In addition to two cute little picnic tables (where the staff helpfully offered to open up a shady umbrella for us), there is also outdoor seating on the café’s terrace. Plus the whole cafe is encased by floor-to-ceiling windows, creating a gorgeous, light-filled space that also allows you to keep an eye on your kiddos from air-conditioned comfort.
Plank serves up some of our favourite pizza in Singapore, so we are pretty stoked that there’s a new location just a bit closer to the centre of town now (we hope they deliver!). And have you ever seen a prettier location for a pizza place?
The new Baker & Cook and Plank Sourdough Pizza are located at 30C Loewen Road, Singapore 248839
