Singapore – With just few weeks to go before we welcome 2019, here’s a round up of the best new cafes we visited this year. If you have not been to any of them, there is always 2019 to do so!
What’s up? The award winning brand from Chiang Mai arrived in Singapore not long ago, at an obscure location in Tai Seng, within Chef Avenue Food Court. Go for the signature coffee, such as the Satan Latte, which is a double shot of Ristretto. There is an indication of the strength of the coffee on the menu, which makes it easy to choose something based on your mood.
Why we like it? Unpretentious setting in a food court, which means your coffee has to be good to keep the crowd coming. The latte art is gorgeous too! [Read more here…]Address: 26 Tai Seng Street, #01-02 Chef Avenue at J’Forte, Singapore 534057
What’s up? Feels more like a cafe in Taiwan or Japan, Apartment is not where you get your brunch food, as the menu is merely coffee and limited non-coffee beverages like green tea. Some pastries and cakes are also served, though the selections are limited. Do note, Apartment does not do takeaway coffee too.
Why we like it? It lives up to its name, as the white apartment look is something we can imagine having coffee in our home. [Read more here…]
Address: 161 Lavender Street, #01-12, Singapore 338750
Halcyon & Crane
What’s up? Finally, there is one cafe we will drop by in Orchard Road. The concept of Halcyon & Crane is Modern European style cafe Sichuanese flavours in their dishes, with a cosy and open concept space. Expect brunch dishes like Cured Sausage Shakshuka and King’s Chicken Hash Benedict.
Why we like it? We are a fan of Birds of A Feather, where the brunch menu here offers some Szechuan twist to the typical cafe offerings. It is quite a refreshing change to the cafe scene. [Read more here…]
Address: 290 Orchard Road, The Paragon, #03-09, Singapore 238859
Tiong Bahru Bakery Safari
What’s up? So glamping is not just about sleeping in now, as you can now glamp it up while sipping coffee and having croissants. The Tiong Bahru Bakery Safari is great if you are a nature person, though be warned that the crowd can get a little out of hand.
Why we like it? It is a one of a kind setting in Singapore, period. [Read more here…]
Address: 130E Minden Road, Singapore 248819
What’s up? The concept of Bearded Bella is inspired by the Melbourne cafe culture, located in a unique shophouse space in the sense that there is an alfresco courtyard seating area at the front of the cafe. Coffee leans towards the fruity notes, while brunch offerings are quite solid.
Why we like it? It brings brunch food to a slightly different level with the thoughts in its plating and presentation. The mix of ingredients also sets it apart from other cafes. [Read more here…]Address: 8 Craig Road, Singapore 089668
Homeground Coffee Roasters
What’s up? A new additon to Katong, this local coffee brand roasts their own beans and offers a varied bagel menu, along with bakes from The Bakery By Woodlands Sourdough.
Why we like it? The gallery like setting and interesting seating configuration. There are two opposing row of seats and also art works nailed on the wall which exudes that bit of an art gallery vibe. [Read more here…]
Address: 475 Joo Chiat Road, Singapore 427682
Five Oars Coffee Roaster
What’s up? A pretty outdoor dining space which is insta-worthy, you can expect a wide combination dishes at Five Oars in Tanjong Pagar from Benedict’s-centric dishes to pastas and rice bowls.
Why we like it? The white, minimalist space of Five Oars is one of the interior designs I am comfortable with for a start. Food options are diverse enough if you need more choices in life. [Read more here…]
Address: 39 Tanjong Pagar Road, Singapore 088462
What’s up? The old Majestic Hotel is now a private club, though level one is a publicly accessible Clan Café. Come here for its atas Otah Sandwich, or a protein bowl more luxe than The Daily Cut.
Why we like it? Pretty tiles and elegant setting, it feels like a cafe within the National Gallery. [Read more here…]Address: 31 Bukit Pasoh Road, Singapore 089845
Liberty Coffee Bar
What’s up? A brand that started since 2010, Liberty Coffee opened its first dine-in cafe space this year in Jalan Besar, a few doors down from CHAR Restaurant. The food menu is not huge but sufficient enough, with casual selections such as sandwiches and pastas, though we say just come here for its coffee.
Why we like it? Robust drip coffee and beans. The shophouse setting is charming, and is a good addition to the buzzing Jalan Besar cafe scene. [Read more here…]Address: 387 Jalan Besar, Singapore 209002
