Cafes are aplenty at Jalan Besar and many of these F&B establishments are notable and rank as one of the best in Singapore.

These days, few cafes impressed us enough for us to return again and again. But Hoopla Coffee & Kitchen made it and we have been there on a few occasions and none of the experiences disappointed.
It is located at the nondescript one-north, in a building called Infinite Studios. Not the most accessible cafe in the West of Singapore, but definitely worth making a trip down if you haven’t. With a welcoming and hippy environment where you can hang around with your friends, the brightly-lit cafe has a menu with nothing above S$17.

This relatively new addition to the cafe scene is a pleasant one. Spacious, dimly-lit and sexy, very good green tea latte and more.
