Heap Seng Leong – Old-School Coffeeshop With Kopi Gu You & Kaya Toast

Heap Seng Leong

Although kopi gu you is a dying tradition, Heap Seng Leong is one of the surviving coffee shops in Singapore that still sells this old-school drink. Entering their humble space is often described as walking into a museum showcase of a 1950s kopitiam. We settled in to the throwback of a place for breakfast with kaya toast, eggs, and kopi gu you.

Kopi served with butter in it is called kopi gu you and literally translates to “coffee butter” in the Hokkien dialect.
