Coast and Company – a little gem in the midst of private housing estate in the Siglap area, is a refreshing break amidst the cafe scene in Singapore. Opened by the same people behind Loysel’s Toy, Chye Seng Huat Hardware, Papa Palheta started off as a solely coffee-roasting and wholesale business and to date, owns four cafes – three prior mentioned and one in Malaysia. It wasn’t the easiest cafe to spot, since we literally drove rounds before we realised it was there all along.
Looking for a cafe in Singapore within minutes from town but away from the hustle bustle? Tucked in the old River Valley Swimming Complex, Fabulous Baker Boy is the answer. This location holds many memories, so it was nice being able to go there, relax and enjoy a nice meal. And as the name suggests, this cafe/bakery is serves fabulous food and cakes.
Located amidst the greens in Bishan Park 2, Canopy Garden Dining is situated directly opposite the Ang Mo Kio Avenue 1 food market at block 338. I love how the doors are made of clear glass, allowing the natural rays of light stream into the cafe while you are surrounded by pretty green bushes.
Located close to Lavender Food Square, 20F Specialty Coffeehouse officially opened their doors in November 2015. This new cafe in Singapore is easy to spot, given its modern decor amongst the row of old shophouses.
The brew bar is strategically placed right at the door where you can see the barristers hard at work, putting together your next cup of coffee. We were pleasantly surprised to see that the coffee beans used were from Liberty Coffee – one of our favourite coffee roasters in Singapore. The coffee, most certainly did not disappoint.
Opened in August 2015 by 3 passionate pastry professionals, Churn Creamery Singapore is quite the underdog (for now at least). We understand from the founders of Churn Creamery that the key ingredient for their gelato is mainly milk instead of cream, allowing a less sinful guilty pleasure. And judging from their display, they sure have a good selection of gelato with a number of unique flavours.
We love waffles! I mean, what’s not to love? Just imagine the sweet buttery aroma, crisp yet soft, sweet and salty at the same time . . .topped with ice-cream or salted egg yolk sauce, even chicken! Where to find the best waffles in Singapore? We’ve been working hard to find you our top 10 favourite waffle house in Singapore! Given the number of hipster cafes that keeps popping up in our little red dot, this list is not exhaustive for sure.
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.
Hong Kong’s very own The Coffee Academics (TCA) has finally opened their flagship cafe in Singapore! Being big fans of Hong Kong food, we just had to check The Coffee Academics Singapore out. Located at Scotts Square-Orchard, the cafe was very easy to find. Once there, we were greeted by a very enthusiastic team of staff – which is of course a sign of good service.
Mr Churro is the reason we started loving churros. We’ve tried the churros in Seoul prepared by Mr Churro himself and we dare say that the franchise in Singapore has lived up to its good name! So, if you are stuck in Singapore and looking for good churros, you definitely have to head down to Ion and give this Korean franchise a try.
