In a fast-paced and highly stressful society where Singaporeans are only getting an average of 6 hours 32 minutes of sleep every night, it is little wonder that most people would require that morning dose of caffeine to get through the day.
For those who spend a majority of their time toiling away in the Central Business District (CBD), searching for that flavourful cuppa may be a daunting task.
But fret not, for here are 9 coffee places in Tanjong Pagar where you can get coffee that will help you to stay awake.
Situated along East Coast Road, Birds of Paradise Gelato Boutique is a delightful ice cream paradise that is highly popular on social media for its extremely photogenic interior and of course, its amazing ice cream.
A prominent face in the vibrant Katong food scene, you will find signature flavours of ice cream inspired by natural botanical elements in this humble parlour.
If you are a fan of the Kith Cafe, we have great news for you. Kith Cafe has opened a new outlet at Winsland House, where you can enjoy their signature coffee and hearty Aussie-style mains.

What is even better is that this outlet is also equipped with many charging ports, which makes it a great space for those who want to work whilst enjoying a hot cuppa in a conducive environment.

You have seen molten lava cakes and molten cheese tarts, but have you tried Kooks Creamery’s exploding molten lava cookies?

The cafe is small and intimate with ample natural light flowing in, and also has bouquets of flowers on display (and on sale too!) so you have ready props for your photos. Thumbs up for the thoughtfulness!

The average cost of a mille crêpe in Singapore costs S$7.79 and we have based that estimated calculation across 15 different cafes.
Recently, we discovered the cheapest mille crêpe in town and it is being sold at a newly opened dessert parlour called Hasu Confections. A slice of Mille Crêpe here starts from S$6—almost half of what you would pay at popular establishments such as Lady M and Henri Charpentier!
