From the outside, Chye Seng Huat Hardware looks like a run-down hardware shop – but don’t be deceived by its name and exterior, it is actually a very hip coffee bar. In addition to the coffee bar, it also features a roastery, a coffee school and a private coffee tasting room.
Many people would agree that Papa Palheta started the whole cafe/coffee trend, and what they have achieved is pretty amazing. If you are a caffeine addict, there’s really no reason not to visit Chye Seng Huat Hardware. Trust me, you’d love it there.
Besides desserts by their in-house baker, CHye Seng Huat Hardware also serves proper food, or “tummy-fillers” as it is known there. Grab a Salami Sandwich ($10), or a Ham Omelette ($8.50) or a Smoked Salmon Sandwich ($11). Otherwise, the French Toast with banana and strawberry ($7.50) or Pancake Stack ($10) would also go very well with a cuppa.
