Bukit Timah Plaza is an old shopping mall with many hidden gems and our latest discovery is Boyle’s Coffee which is situated beside Rise & Grind cafe. Nothing is over-the-top at Boyle’s Coffee and the most impressive thing you will find there is probably their chic espresso machine.
If you are looking for a change from the usual gimmicky cafes, Boyle’s Coffee is an artisanal cafe where you can settle in and escape with great coffee and some light bites. READ ON
A wallet-friendly dining establishment you should be taking note of is [email protected]—one of the many options along Greenwood Avenue.

Lorong Kilat is a cosy little street near Beauty World MRT Station on the new Downtown Line in Singapore. The new Downtown Line has made the whole Bukit Timah area very accessible so there is no excuse to not travel to the West for food now!
The whole stretch feels very comforting, like a quaint little neighbourhood street. But during meal hours, the place comes to life. Bars, bakeries, restaurants, cafes and more populate the area, with some very well known names such as Carpenter and Cook, Kim’s Family Restaurant and more.
Here is a Guide to Lorong Kilat’s Restaurants, Cafes & Eateries.
To many fans’ dismay, Bing Qi Lin in Seletar Hills has closed its doors in mid-August. But little did they know – that was not the end of the ice cream brand.
Bing Qi Lin has undergone a major brand revamp and renamed itself as Sugarhaus Singapore. The owners have worked doubly hard to expand the business and now offer its patrons a comfortable dine-in concept. It is situated within Serene Centre, just right beside Island Creamery—a pioneer in making freshly made ice cream featuring local flavours.
Located in the vicinity of horse stables at Turf Club Road, Tin Hill Social serves as a great hang-out spot to kick back with good food and drinks. The food, in general, is pretty hearty with meats and heavier sharing items, and a selection of alcoholic beverages from wines to cocktails.
Located just at the first floor of Bukit Timah Plaza, Rise & Grind Coffee Co. occupies a cosy space with a partial alfresco dining area. Opened about three months ago, Rise & Grind Coffee Co. offers a nice and comfortable dining environment together with delicious food and different blends of coffee to choose from.
All mains at Rise & Grind Coffee Co. are well priced under S$20, and they occasional offer lunch deals at a steal. Expect Asian fusion food here, together with a good range of beverage and dessert options.
“Always tasty, always homemade. With love.”
That’s Little Diner for you.
The humble eatery that sits amidst the lush greenery of Bukit Timah, away from the humdrum of city life and stress – cosy and unpretentious. It is a no-frills place; just earnest comfort food in generous portions. Lunch, dinner, weekend brunch… whenever you need to please that tummy of yours, Little Diner will take care of that.
Nothing here costs an arm and a leg – most of the dishes on the menu are reasonably priced below S$20 – and all that we’ve sampled and had were delightfully yummy to say the least. Some classics are as good as gold, some creations took us by surprise and left us lingering for more. Little Diner has also just launched its new 2-course weekday set lunch at S$22.50++.
Today, we share 10 Must-Try Dishes at Little Diner and we urge you to drop by for a meal that you will not have regrets for.
These days, we don’t need to travel out of our neighbourhood to get good food and desserts. Cafes are spouting out everywhere, and we are definitely not complaining. We have cafes at every district in Singapore, and no one gets left out.
The West of Singapore may not be a favourite part if you do not reside there, for it is pretty far out from the main areas and can indeed get a little out of the way. But because we are such fans of artisan places and cosy spaces, we would travel just for a slice of rainbow cake or a good cuppa, yes?
If you are a resident of the West, this post might not be of much surprise to you anymore (or is it?), but if you are from everywhere else, this should spark some venturing out and give you some ideas on where to eat out at next.
We will update our list from time to time, but for a start, here are the best cafes in the West of Singapore to check out:
