Coffee aficionados in Singapore went absolutely crazy when popular Japanese coffee shop % Arabica opened its first store in Singapore at Arab Street last year.
Since then, the renowned coffee chain that hails from Kyoto, Japan has opened another 2 outlets in Singapore at [email protected] and Chip Bee Gardens.
While % Arabica is known for its stellar cups of coffee, the brand’s venture at Chip Bee Gardens has introduced a food section to their menu so you can enjoy some scrumptious nosh that pairs perfectly with their soothing cups of coffee. This is also the only % Arabica outlet in the world to have a food menu.
From hearty bowls of Shiso Pasta to their outrageously juicy Beef Katsu Sando, here is what you can expect from % Arabica at Chip Bee Gardens.
Throw a stone in any direction in Singapore and chances are, it’ll land on a cafe. It’s official, Singaporeans are mad about cafes—and we’re only getting madder. But gone are the days where cafes used to be places offering people a respite from the hustle and bustle, to catch up on reading or simply to lounge about in the comfort of good company, a nice warm beverage and a light snack to match.
Nowadays, the appeal of hipster cafes is a tad different. It’s all about the aesthetics, the so-called ’wow factor’ and whether or not certain qualities—be it the food, drinks or interior—are worthy of the ‘gram’ or not.
It’s times like these where one really should know where to find a nice quiet cafe, one devoid of the hipster crowd, the noise and simply a place that offers a conducive space to work, read or lounge about. Here is our list of 10 quiet cafes to get lost in a good book without distractions.

Do remember to practise safe distancing and good hygiene habits while you have fun with your loved ones; we don’t want to find ourselves back in another Circuit Breaker.

2020 has been a bad year for everyone, period.
Most industries in Singapore have been badly hit by the pandemic, which has left many of us scrambling to save our sinking boats. The F&B sector especially has suffered and things got worse when the Circuit Breaker was put in place, restricting people from dining out and patronising these establishments.
Aside from COVID-19, many of these F&B ventures have also decided to close for other reasons such as the end of their lease. Whatever the case, we are sad to see these places go and we hope that better opportunities will come their way soon.
With that, here is a list of F&B outlets in Singapore that have closed their doors in 2020.
The dessert scene has seen the arrival of many quirky and innovative creations, with some that are too pretty to be eaten. However, at the end of the day, nothing truly beats a classic scoop of ice cream.
We adore our ice cream and we love how over the years, more exciting, unheard of flavours have popped up in the market. Nutty beer? Chilli Chocolate? Rhubarb Buttermilk? Sign us up.
While we enjoy having our ice cream in the parlour itself, sometimes, it just feels better to have it at home. Especially during this period where most people would prefer to stay home, we know that some of you would want another alternative that’ll allow you to get your hands on your favourite dessert. Therefore, we have put together this guide of 16 places that do ice cream delivery in Singapore for your reference.
While the Circuit Breaker has been confirmed to be over by 1 June 2020, not everything will go back to normalcy immediately.
The post-measures for after the Circuit Breaker has been divided into 3 phases. Phase 1 commencing 2 June 2020 will be considered the ‘safe re-opening’ stage and allows a certain number of businesses to resume their services.
Sadly, food & beverage outlets will still not be able to allow dine-ins during Phase 1. Phase 1 is estimated to last a few weeks from the end of the Circuit Breaker.
