Many old shop houses and housing estate are converted into modernise theme cafes or boutique hotels which added to it charm in Tiong Bahru.

At Blk 69 Tiong Bahru Road, it was once a glory Chinese Medical Hall which served the residents before it was abandoned for few years (I used to work around Tiong Bahru around year 2006) before The Dispensary Bakery took over and changed the fate of the Chinese Medical Hall.

The Dispensary Bakery is located at the heritage area of Tiong Bahru. It located opposite LINK Hotel and beside Nostalgia Hotel.

Why they named Dispensary Bakery? As it was once a Chinese Medical Hall, they tried to preserve the old appearance of the old Chinese Medical Hall with the western/modernise concept to their Bakery store.

When you first step into Dispensary Bakery, you might be mistaken that you are entering medical hall. They displayed many nostalgic items which brings back the childhood memories.
