Coffee Shops In Raffles Place Collage

In today’s hectic work environment, coffee has become an essential part of our lives. Like most people, we wake up feeling grumpy and prepare for work in a haze of lethargy. But the aroma of coffee will instantly wake us up; always.

Just one sip and the brain starts to run, the eyes brighten, and all at once, you feel ready to take on the day. Being serious coffee nuts, we make it our business to know where to find the best coffee wherever we are. For most of Singapore’s working crowd, it’s the Central Business District (CBD).

Here are 11 of our favourite coffee haunts in Singapore’s Central Business District (CBD) where you can drop by for a morning cuppa.

A name that resonates with every true coffee lover, and particularly those who work in the CBD, is Dimbulah Coffee.

If all-day-breakfast is not enough to peak your fancy, then we hope the evening menu that features an antipasti platter, or Chicken Schnitzel will. But fancy grub aside, Dimbulah is better known for their coffee that serves as the perfect pick-me-up for anybody.
