The Place From the guys behind Upside Down Coffee Roaster, this small coffee- only cafe at Lavender opened days before circuit breaker and have restated operations again. With only counter and bench seats, Shift Syphon Bar wants you to head here just for its coffee.
Located at the corner unit of the level one commercial units at Southbank condominium, you can stroll here from Lavender MRT or from the car park at the North Bridge Road Market & Food Centre.
The Food Well technically there’s no food option, but an extensive menu of coffee variations and of course, Syphon-brewed coffee if you haven’t noticed this on the cafe’s name. No frills coffee stall, similar to its renamed Shift Coffee Stand at Amoy, the Upside Down Coffee Roaster group now has rebranded its retail outlets under the Shift branding.
Other than single origin beans which you can find at Shift, you can find Mocha (chocolate from Korte) and Matcha (green tea from Matchaya) selections. Since it is our first visit here, went for their Flat White (S$5) and Black (S$4.50) prepared with their house blend.
Rants Extremely small space with limited seating capacity.
Will I Return Again? Shift Syphon Bar is worth dropping by for its Syphon-brewed coffee, though it is not a place to hang around for long.
