Kyu Coffee Bar—a new kid on the block—is strategically located right at the entrance of Prudential Tower in Raffles Place.
The three-week-old takeaway speciality coffee kiosk’s wooden frames instantly reminded us of Kitty Burns in Melbourne. CBD dwellers in need of a highly-caffeinated perk-me-up should drop by Kyu Coffee Bar for a quick energy boost.
The minimalistic coffee bar is a business venture by Nine Press. You can look forward to aromatic beverages prepared with coffee blends from Knockhouse Supply Co. and Nylon Coffee Roasters.
Drinks aside, there is also a selection of petite savouries and sweets available. Why not grab a treat with a hot coffee for just S$6.50?
Coffee prices start from S$4.50 for a 8-oz cup and S$5.50 for a 12-oz cup. While prices are considered reasonable for Raffles Place’s standards, we heard from nearby corporate workers that it is still at least a dollar pricier than its previous tenant – One Shot Coffee.
Kyu Coffee Bar also serves Tea by Clippers Tea (Timeless Earl Grey – S$4.50, Chamomile – S$4.50, Green Tea Strawberry – S$5, Evergreen – S$4.50), Matcha (S$5.50), Mocha (S$5.50) and Hot Chocolate (S$5.50). Top up an additional S$1 for ice and another S$1 to upsize it.
Complete your teatime break with a pastry. From Chocolate Flourless Cake (S$4.50), Earl Grey Tea Cake (S$2.50) to Pain Au Chocolat (S$3.20), there is surely something you fancy.
For something more substantial, get their Fish Ciabatta Sandwich or Chicken Ciabatta Sandwich (S$8.90 each).
