$2 scrambled eggs in a cafe, nestled snugly in the city? I am talking about Black Coffee Dessert Bar at TripleOne Somerset. Well, not only does Black Coffee cafe have an all day breakfast menu, it also offers a wide selection of drinks like beers and smoothies besides coffee!
Being an independent espresso bar, Black Coffee is a great place to get your caffeine kick when you are in Orchard Road. Besides the excellent coffee, we also sampled some of their desserts which are baked in house. The carrot cake, in particular, is really moist, and it goes perfectly well with a shot of hot coffee. And oh! Black Coffee cafe has breakfast, lunch and tea set promotions that are worth a try!
Much as I love for this cafe to reside within four walls for a cosier ambience, it is however an open concept. Nonetheless it is one of my go-to cafes to catch up with friends over a unique cup of latte. I just simply adore its location. If you know me, I repel against crowded places and get attracted to cafes. Hence, this is a merry marriage of Mr convenient cafe and Miss sweet serenity.
Somehow, this almost perfectly cosy cafe has its charm. It could be that little wooden hut, the quaint vintage television or those squiggly words on the huge blackboard in the cafe that captured my heart. Take a breather from your perfectly busy schedule and check out the (almost) perfectly cosy Black Coffee cafe and help me figure out. Cheers!
For folks who are working in the central business district, you can find Black Coffee’s original outlet at Hitachi Tower, Raffles Place.
