Coffee is a lot more than a drink and Singapore’s coffee culture has changed over the past decade. From premium Arabica brew, Instagram-worthy flat lays to all-day brunch menu, the café-hopping trail has showcased the evolution and better appreciation of coffee culture.
There are numerous cafes and speciality coffeehouses in Singapore and these are the cafes in town that we have visited and where we have consumed our fair share of coffee and desserts. Lo and behold, here is the ultimate guide to cafes and coffee shops in Orchard Road. READ ON
Singaporeans are blessed with a strong cafe scene in this little red dot we call home. Almost every region in the city has a good handful of cafes for you to explore – all the way from Pasir Ris to Jurong. Yes, even the west!
Although the west may sound like a far away land to many of you who do not reside there, we would gladly make our way there for a good cup of coffee or simply to appreciate the unique cafe interior design. We like to think of it as taking a day trip there with our friends in search of hidden gems in Singapore.
In this guide, we share with you our updated list of 42 Cafes in the West of Singapore You Must Visit. READ ON
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.
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.
Heading up to level 2 of 73 Amoy Street to Dapper Coffee was a tiny setback, especially after trudging through Singapore’s humid weather. But the cosy space made up for the “hike”, and we spent an idyllic afternoon at the cafe over great coffee.
The swanky interior resembles a cool British pub. The coffee aroma that filled the air was alluring and we were thankful for the good range of different coffee to choose from.
Let’s see what the hype about Dapper Coffee is all about.
Truth be told, we were really upset when November 8 at Upper Thomson shut its doors a few months ago. Thankfully, the same people behind November 8 has opened a brand new cafe & bar concept in the same Thomson V One Building and it is called Five by Five (5 x 5).
The 2-week old casual establishment is decked in an all-white interior with minimalistic wooden furnishings. Five by Five is one of the rare few cafes in Singapore that opens till midnight daily (except for Tuesdays).
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.
