Over the years, Singapore has attracted numerous influential artists and big-name museum exhibitions—from renown Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama to prized specimens from the prestigious Natural History Museum London. In addition to all that rich culture and wonderful art, there are some excellent cafes and restaurants in these museums as well.
We have put together a list of places where you can expect great food and magnificent art under one roof; you’d be surprised that many of these places offer a lot more than just coffee and cake—some even deserve a visit of their own.
Here is a guide to 8 Museum Cafés And Restaurants In Singapore To Appreciate Art And Food. READ ON
Picture this scenario: You are down and beaten up by the dreaded Monday blues and are in need of some comfort food to brighten up your day. You google for your preferred choice of cafe, only to realize that they are indeed too, not functioning on the first day of the week.
We have been there, done that and very much want to elevate your dull Mondays. Nothing screams comfort as much as food does, which makes it even more frustrating when some of the cafes you want to visit so badly are closed on the day you need them the most.
With that said, we are here to help you kickstart the week with a bang. Check out the cafes in Singapore that are open on Mondays to bring a smile to the start of your week.
Don’t you just love days where you get to spend some time alone in a cafe, away from the mayhem and just to catch up with yourself in a lovely space? Imagine yourself on a laptop with your favourite shows running, or simply catching up with some overdue work without any disturbance.
And the pleasure of scrolling through your Facebook feed or watch YouTube videos without having to worry about the excess data usage while munching on some food is priceless.
If all these sound tempting to you, then we are here to help. Days like these are when we really need a list of List of Conducive Cafes in Singapore with free Wi-Fi and power sockets to study and work at. Bookmark this guide, because we know it will be so beneficial.
We’ve always griped about the fact that cafes are all about unhealthy food that are packed with sins, and all that talk about balanced diets almost does not exist. Most of the time, all we get is some sad-looking arugula on the side that honestly looks less appetising than grass, and we have reached the point of giving up on having our dose of fibre at cafes.
Then, Fresh Fruits Lab (FFL) at Changi Road came along, and we found hope all over again. This cafe is all about inculcating fresh fruits into their food and drinks! Well, as its name suggests, it prides itself as a heaven for all fruits lovers.
The whole space is fully utilised, with colours everywhere, and very artistic. Quirky displays fill the cafe, and we love how it feels like a hippy laboratory with the many apparatus on display. Even the drinks are served in test tubes and conical flasks!
These days, we don’t need to travel out of our neighbourhood to get good food and desserts. Cafes are spouting out everywhere, and we are definitely not complaining. We have cafes at every district in Singapore, and no one gets left out.
The West of Singapore may not be a favourite part if you do not reside there, for it is pretty far out from the main areas and can indeed get a little out of the way. But because we are such fans of artisan places and cosy spaces, we would travel just for a slice of rainbow cake or a good cuppa, yes?
If you are a resident of the West, this post might not be of much surprise to you anymore (or is it?), but if you are from everywhere else, this should spark some venturing out and give you some ideas on where to eat out at next.
We will update our list from time to time, but for a start, here are the best cafes in the West of Singapore to check out:
Rangoon Road is one of those areas that we’d love to think of as the “last frontiers of Singapore”. In our memories, we grew up knowing Rangoon Road as one laid back neighbourhood scattered with coffee shops, little eateries and workshops. When one thinks of Rangoon Road, Ng Ah Sio and Founders Bak Kut Teh come to mind.
However, the neighbourhood is more than just bak kut teh. While Rangoon Road may not have evolved much, it is no less quaint and lovely. Today, many new cafes have opened in the neighbourhood and it is hardly a surprise given the strategic location.
Here is a guide to cafes in the Rangoon Road neighbourhood.
Few things are more therapeutic than enjoying some alone time and have coffee while reading a book on a quiet afternoon. One of the cafes in the Tanjong Pagar neighbourhood that we go to regularly is Drury Lane.
The Upper Thomson neighbourhood is experiencing a revival, with new cafes like November 8 and One Man Coffee opening in the area. Among them, you should swing by One Man Coffee for great coffee and delicious light bites like its ‘Toad in the Hole’ and the much-lauded French toast.
