Previously located along Beach Road, Candour Coffee—a Melbourne-inspired specialty coffee shop—has shifted to 72 Duxton Road and it is a spot that all coffee lovers have to check out. The minimalistic cafe directly imports their beans from Dukes Coffee Roasters and Market Lane Coffee. For those not the in the know, these two roasteries hail from Melbourne and are exceptionally popular for their high-quality blends.
Melburnian coffee aside, Candour Coffee’s menu also features a selection of MAN CHA teas, wholesome savouries, delectable sweet treats and alcoholic drinks! We dropped by one weekend and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of their cuppas.
Start with an aromatic flat white (S$6++). Prices are considered pretty steep but that is only because what you are getting is a top-notch caffeinated espresso beverage prepared with blends that have been directly imported from the coffee capital of the world – aka Melbourne.
Their newly launch Bacon-wrapped Chicken Burger (S$11++) is sinful but absolutely delicious. A generous amount of bacon, chicken, cheese, lettuce, tomato and homemade barbecue sauce is stuffed between two burger buns.
For desserts, help yourselves to the petite Matcha Azuki Tart (S$6++) topped with fresh fruits, or opt for the Buttermilk Waffles with Seasonal Fruits (S$8.50++). You can also top it off with a scoop of ice-cream (S$3++) – choose from black sesame, chocolate, grape, matcha, vanilla and yuzu.
