Great news for coffee aficionados, the famous Omotesando Koffee from Tokyo has officially opened in Singapore. Those of you hankering after a cuppa from this highly acclaimed Japanese import can now get their caffeine fix at the shop’s debut Singapore outlet at Downtown Gallery.
We first reported the news of the opening of Omotesando Koffee back in April 2017 and boy are we glad that it is finally in Singapore.
For those of you who are new to the brand, what you can look forward to at this artisanal coffee bar is their high-quality espresso-based beverages. Their first and only outlet in Singapore features a myriad of caffeinated beverages from matcha based drinks to a good old latte so whether you have a burning passion for artisanal brews or not, Omotesando Koffee is a spot worth checking out.
New kid on the block, CATfeine, is nestled in The Hillford along Jalan Jurong Kechil. Contrary to its name, nothing about the cafe’s interior design reminds you of a cat but the idea is there—a cosy environment coupled with relaxing vibes to encourage their guests to lounge around.
Other than specialty tea and coffee, CATfeine’s also offers sweet and savoury bites in the likes of waffles, pies and cakes. READ ON

As an added bonus, visitors do not have to pay for GST and service charge as well. So if you are looking for a new lunch spot in the CBD area, Lunar Coffee Brewers is where you should be headed to next. READ ON

If you are a fan of the Kith Cafe, we have great news for you. Kith Cafe has opened a new outlet at Winsland House, where you can enjoy their signature coffee and hearty Aussie-style mains.
This spanking new cafe has a spacious interior and is located in the slightly quieter and less busy area of Somerset, transforming the cafe into a suitable space for those who want to share conversations with their dining partner in a more intimate setting.
What is even better is that this outlet is also equipped with many charging ports, which makes it a great space for those who want to work whilst enjoying a hot cuppa in a conducive environment.
Fynn’s Café—conveniently located right outside Esplanade MRT Station Exit CC3—is a gorgeous new addition to South Beach Avenue. The beautiful modern all-day dining café reminded us of our good old days in Melbourne. It is worth mentioning staff members are attentive and friendly – a trait that Singapore’s hospitality industry greatly lacks.
We dropped by on a weekday afternoon and Fynn’s Café was packed with customers; expatriates and office dwellers make up the bulk of the crowd. No surprise there, since it is located just a stone’s throw away from the office building and JW Marriott Hotel.
We all need that quick pick-me-up, especially when work days can be so draggy. If you happen to work around One-North, you are in luck because there is a cosy cafe there that serves pretty decent coffee!
Envy Coffee is a 5-minute walk away from One-North MRT station, nestled in the office district of Fusionopolis. Because of its convenient location, it can get rather busy during lunch hour but guess what? You can make reservations prior to your visit. Otherwise, you can simply order your beverage for takeaway.
