The charming Lavender and Jalan Besar neighbourhoods are filled with plenty of cafes, coffee shops and dessert places.
From the OG coffee shop, Chye Seng Huat Hardware to newly-opened spots including La Levain and Habitat Coffee, here are 15 cafes in Lavender and Jalan Besar to check out next.
Pacto by Parchmen is a new cafe at Jalan Besar Community Centre and it is opened by the team behind pet-friendly Sun Ray Cafe and Parched.
The Lavender neighbourhood is home to many wonderful cafes and following on the arrival of Habitat Coffee, Pacto by Parchmen is the latest addition to the area.
Habitat Coffee has moved from Upper Thomson Road to a new location at King’s George Avenue in the Lavender neighbourhood. It has soft launched on 3 August 2021 and you can get your coffee and brunch fix from their new home.
Barking Irons is a new steampunk-themed speakeasy bistro bar in Lavender serving up an interesting innovation: local-inspired cocktails! The catch? These cocktails are made from a harmonious blend of both our all-time favourite childhood beverages and liquor.
They also have a sweet story behind the inspiration for their local drinks: they wanted to adopt the “coffee-shop style” with drinks that reminded others of their throw-back childhood generation.
A fairly new kid on the block, Barking Irons has slowly been gaining recognition amongst alcoholics for their killer cocktails and toothsome mains.
