When Batam comes to mind, people normally think of relaxing staycations and lounging around without a care in the world. Cafes won’t be their most poignant memory from this tropical island.
Anchor Café & Roastery will help you change that mindset.
Serving up a delicious array of Southern-inspired brunch, cakes and single-origin coffee, Anchor Café will ensure your Batam trip is one that you’ll remember.

We often crave for Japanese food, but some days, we do have a budget that limits our choices.
We’ve stumbled upon Yamaya – a hidden gem stowed away in Fortune Centre—serving up delicious and filling set meals at a fraction of the price of the average Japanese restaurant. Check out what we ordered and our thoughts on this hidden gem!
With an influx of bakeries, patisseries and sweets shops from overseas, it’s good to be reminded of what some of our passion-driven locals can do as well.
Located just behind Empress Road Food Centre, Bakery Brera serves up freshly-made bread, croissants and other pastries.
Helmed by passionate owners Jacky Chan and his wife, Thrina, Bakery Brera revolutionises the concept of neighbourhood bakeries. Gone are the days of overly-sweet yet flavourless sliced cakes and Swiss rolls! This is a modern change that we all hope to keep in Singapore’s ever-shifting culinary landscape.
Tucked away in Upper Cross Street is Whiskit Bakery & Cafe—one of the most instagrammable cafes in Singapore which serves up an array of delectable desserts!
From colourful Rainbow Cheesecakes to more local-inspired pastry such as Kaya Ondeh tarts, Whiskit Bakery & Cafe is definitely one to mark down on your list of cafes you have to try in Singapore.
Nestled in the rows of busy shophouses at Pasir Panjang is 91PP, aptly named after the street it is on – 91 Pasir Panjang. It may seem unsuspecting but the many office-wear clad customers tell a different story.
91PP dishes out affordable lunch options for its hungry patrons such as their Meal Prep bowls and Pasta, and they are all under S$10! They also operate on a cashless system where you order your food on a mobile app, so there’s no need to bring along your wallets too.
Newly opened in Tanjong Katong is quaint little cafe, 6 Letter Coffee. The cosy cafe occupies a storefront near Tanjong Katong Girls’ School—a stone’s throw away from Dakota MRT Station. They even have a nail salon at the back of the cafe if you’re wanting a manicure after indulging in some food and coffee.
Serving up a variety of all-day breakfast and brunch menu items, along with other mains and desserts, this new cafe might just be your new favourite spot to relax and unwind. Here’s what we tried and our take on this new coffee stop!
Tucked away in The Herencia at Kim Yam Road is Kura that serves up delectable Japanese pastries at wallet-friendly prices. Even so, they don’t compromise on quality and offer up some mouthwatering cakes.
Kura shares the space with cafe and bar, In Bad Co, with a small glass display of their multi-coloured confections. With offices and residential areas nearby, we’re sure it will be an up-and-coming place for desserts in no time.
