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.
Walk into Envy Coffee and you will notice the vibrant colours used on the walls and furniture. Nothing is colour coded and the chairs are placed in random in a multitude of colours. The bright colours will perk your day up, even if you are having Monday blues. Check out the quote on the wall too; the cafe has got all the hipster vibes right.
Visitors also get access to free wifi (the password is on the receipt) and power points; don’t you just love cafes that provide wifi? We sure do!
Envy Coffee is known for handcrafted coffee and we knew we had to try their Cappuccino (S$5). The aromatic smell of the Cappuccino had us all excited, and it sure was a good blend of espresso and hot steamed milk. The froth was just the right amount too; nothing too thick that you have to scoop it out.
The Cafe Latte (S$5) has a milder espresso taste as compared to the Cappuccino. Those who prefer a creamier coffee drink will enjoy this.
Envy Coffee also offers mains and desserts on their menu but we would say skip those and go for the coffee instead because they are not worth the time and calories at all.
For NUS students who are looking for a change of environment to study at, Envy Coffee is one you can consider as it is located near to your campus. Just be sure to avoid the lunch crowd or you will it hard to get a table.
