Unlike the other regions of Singapore, the North is still relatively new to the cafe scene. If you are a long-time resident of the region, you might have been perplexed with the lack of cafes and faced with the need to constantly travel out for an added variety of interesting eats.
Thankfully, the Gods have heard our prayers and many new cafes have begun to sprout in certain corners of the Northern District in Singapore. You will be surprised to find some of these places taking root near neighbourhood estates which are really accessible and easy to spot.
Here are some of our picks on cafes to visit in the North in Singapore.

Canopy Garden & Dining Bar is a new-found brunch haunt that offers a good menu of comfort food with friendly price tags, and is coveted for its location – nestled amongst the lush greenery of Bishan Park, and away from the bustling city. I have a thing for calm and unassuming spots as such, where you could just break away from everyone and everything, and idle your day away with your favourite magazine.
If you are staying in the area – well, even if you are not, there is absolutely no reason to not pay Canopy a visit. I could preach non-stop about going there for brunch, but let me just highlight its value-for-money offerings.
