New cafes in Singapore – 2016

What to eat in Singapore? New cafes are opening in every nook and corner of Singapore. That’s cause Singaporeans love to eat and we will travel for good food! Look at the snaking queue at You Huak White Bee Hoon in Sembawang, Hai Di Lao at IMM, we’re even willing to queue for Ichiran in Japan! No wonder these new brunch places are opening in new and old estates, with or without a train station near it. Here’s a little list of cafes that we think is worth a visit this 2016.

Bao Makers

Sick of the usual brunch items in a hipster cafe? Opened in October 2015, The Bao Makers is a hipster cafe serving the man-tou with chilli crab, salted egg yolk, etc. As the name says it, they are indeed the bao makers with their soft buns and delectable flavours.

Clinton Street Baking Company

Opened in September 2015, the word EAT is no stranger to those familiar with the New York food scene. Known for their pancakes and fried chicken, you can just imagine the delight when this restaurant opened its doors to us. There’s always a wait list, probably attributed by the fact that they are only opened for business till 6:00pm everyday.

The Populus Coffee & Food Co.

Opened in October 2015, this cafe has built a reputation for itself with its delectable and instagram worthy  dishes. Cafe is easy to access, close to Outram MRT station. It’s a pity they close early on weekdays.

20F Specialty Coffeehouse

A stone’s throw from the Lavender Food Square which used to house the famous Kok Kee Wanton Mee. We’ve found another reason to patronise the area with 20F Coffeehouse opening its doors at 20 Foch Road.

The Coffee Academics Singapore

If anyone takes their coffee seriously, it has to be The Coffee Academics. The famous Hong Kong Coffee Powerhouse launched their first store in Singapore, Square in November 2015. Whilst we were not blown away by their food, their coffee and pancake more than made up for it.

If you can’t decide whether you’d rather have pasta or assam, local or “ang moh”, Montana Singapore is the place for you. Opened in December 2015, this place “merges traditional with creative twists”.

Dazzling Cafe

This cafe has been around for awhile now, but the queues were so ridiculously long that it made the experience not-as-worthy. Now that the hype has died down a little, we believe you will enjoy the toast this place has to offer a little more.
