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.
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.
This spanking new cafe has a spacious interior and is located in the slightly quieter and less busy area of Somerset, transforming the cafe into a suitable space for those who want to share conversations with their dining partner in a more intimate setting.
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.
Tiong Hoe Gim Kee Trading Co is a reputable pioneer in Singapore’s competitive coffee industry. Its founder, Mr Tan Tiong Hoe, has more than half a century worth of experience in roasting coffee beans.
In 2014, the family-run business opened Tiong Hoe Specialty Coffee at Stirling Road in Queenstown HDB Estate and has since then raised the bar of specialty coffee in Singapore.
Fynn’s Café—conveniently located right outside Esplanade MRT Station Exit CC3—is a gorgeous new addition to South Beach Avenue. The beautiful modern all-day dining café reminded us of our good old days in Melbourne. It is worth mentioning staff members are attentive and friendly – a trait that Singapore’s hospitality industry greatly lacks.
We dropped by on a weekday afternoon and Fynn’s Café was packed with customers; expatriates and office dwellers make up the bulk of the crowd. No surprise there, since it is located just a stone’s throw away from the office building and JW Marriott Hotel.
Shared-space cafes are all the rage right now and we are seeing east-side cafe Stamping Ground Coffee adopting this genius concept at its new location in the Siglap neighbourhood.
Located along Upper East Coast Road, Stamping Ground Coffee shares the same space with a florist—Dawn Q Floral Design. The end result was unexpected; two inherently different businesses co-existing harmoniously in a single venue.
Kyu Coffee Bar—a new kid on the block—is strategically located right at the entrance of Prudential Tower in Raffles Place.
The three-week-old takeaway speciality coffee kiosk’s wooden frames instantly reminded us of Kitty Burns in Melbourne. CBD dwellers in need of a highly-caffeinated perk-me-up should drop by Kyu Coffee Bar for a quick energy boost.
Brothers In Fine Food, a new cafe open in Tampines West Community Centre, is opened by the good folks behind Penny University.
The space sits in the heart of the Tampines West residential cluster and it is definitely one of the new cafés in Singapore that you should not miss out on.
We all need that quick pick-me-up, especially when work days can be so draggy. If you happen to work around One-North, you are in luck because there is a cosy cafe there that serves pretty decent coffee!
Envy Coffee is a 5-minute walk away from One-North MRT station, nestled in the office district of Fusionopolis. Because of its convenient location, it can get rather busy during lunch hour but guess what? You can make reservations prior to your visit. Otherwise, you can simply order your beverage for takeaway.
