What’s Buzzing? It used to be a hole-in-the-wall shop along Club Street, which is one of the coffee joints near Telok Ayer which I enjoy visiting. The re-opening of Maxi Coffee Bar this October at their new location and home at 6 Ann Siang Hill is a relatively low key affair, which is also charming in its own way. In any case, Maxi Coffee Bar has always exuded that indie coffee vibe for me, and that spirit is reflective in their new location.
What To Expect? Well, the space is still not huge though there are far more seats available as compared to its previous location where you literally rub shoulders with fellow coffee lovers. Decked in dreamy blue and white tones from the exterior to the interior, I like the blue tiled coffee tables at its entrance. It reminds me of that familiar HDB void deck vibes where people used to gather to catch up.
The outdoor tables are along the walkway, which makes it a good spot for people watching while sipping coffee. It is a charming street to sip coffee, as this corner of Ann Siang Hill is less busy than the main stretch of Ann Siang Road.
If you fancy the indoor seats, there are two small tables with windows looking out into the street. Most of the indoor space is dedicated to the coffee bar, where you can watch the barista work their coffee magic.
What To Have? Coffee options include the likes of Filter (S$6) coffee, Cold Brews (S$5.80/Black, S$6.80/Oat), and there is even a Iced Cereal Milk Latte (S$7.50) under one of their greatest hits.
For food, expect the likes of Granola (S$6), and a series of toast and sourdough with various ingredients like cheese and egg. There is also pastries from popular online pastry shop, Le Matin, where the Kouign-amann (S$7) is a must try.
