Atlas Coffeehouse | Breathing Life Into the Bukit Timah Cafe Scene

When I visited Atlas Coffeehouse a few days ago it was barely a week old, yet patrons were already lining the counter seats facing the busy main road of Bukit Timah. Interestingly, this is not the first hot new cafe that is helmed by another established one, as others before seemed to have been doing so too, with different propositions and monikers (like On The Table by … Continue reading Atlas Coffeehouse | Breathing Life Into the Bukit Timah Cafe Scene

The Betterfield, Waterloo Centre (MOVED)

Cafe, bistro, eatery – it’s hard to tell the difference sometimes. But frankly, does it really matter what it is? As long as the food is good, the ambience, prices and service are decent, I’m happy. The Betterfield is a new cafe/bistro that recently opened almost literally next door to Mosaic Dance, the studio at which I teach salsa. So you can imagine it has … Continue reading The Betterfield, Waterloo Centre (MOVED)

Stirling Highway, Ulu Pandan

It’s another cafe post! What can I say, I really like cafes. There’s just something about kicking back to chill out and have a nice cup of coffee or tea, with some sweet and savoury goodies. Better on weekends, but hey, makes for a nice and relaxing weekday lunch too. Stirling Highway takes the place of Haato at the sleepy Ridgewood Close condominium, tucked away … Continue reading Stirling Highway, Ulu Pandan

On The Table, Pasir Panjang

Happy New Year everyone! For my first post of 2015, I have decided to share about a cafe I recently visited (as I love cafes, and also, in case anyone needs inspiration for a place to hang out this weekend). Been wanting to but still haven’t been to the popular Lola’s Cafe in Kovan because of the location, so when I heard that they had … Continue reading On The Table, Pasir Panjang

Jimmy Monkey, One North

And here’s another post on one of the One North cafés. Jimmy Monkey has been at One North Residences for around 3 years already though, so I wouldn’t say that it is a new upstart in the area. At the corner of a sleepy residential block next to a shop selling picture frames, you might just walk right past it if you weren’t specifically going … Continue reading Jimmy Monkey, One North

Envy Coffee, One North

It sometimes feels like there’s a new café opening in Singapore every minute. And the Buona Vista/One North area, with its nearby Fusionopolis, Biopolis and Metropolis office buildings as well as the somewhat quiet but quite upmarket One North and Rochester residential buildings, appears to be the latest in the string of upcoming ‘hip neighbourhoods’ where some of these aforementioned cafes are popping up. Envy Coffee, one … Continue reading Envy Coffee, One North

Group Therapy, Katong V and Duxton Road

I’ve visited Group Therapy at Katong V at least five times, and the one at Duxton a couple of times, but somehow never got around to writing a post on it. An ex-classmate of mine is one of the founders, and I initially visited the original branch at Duxton about 3 years back to try it out, show some support. But after they set up … Continue reading Group Therapy, Katong V and Duxton Road

10 Scotts, Grand Hyatt Singapore

One Sunday afternoon in June last year, Z decided on the spur of the moment that we should go for a nice afternoon tea. And so I tried to book a spot at Tea Lounge (Regent) and Brasserie Les Saveurs (St Regis), but was unsuccessful. Searched around online and ended up with 10 Scotts at Grand Hyatt Singapore, since reviews seemed positive and they had seats available. And … Continue reading 10 Scotts, Grand Hyatt Singapore

The Bravery, Jalan Besar

Jalan Besar is fast becoming a hipster area for cafés, bakeries and quaint little eateries. With Loysel’s Toy first opening at a little industrial building in the Lavender area around 3 years ago, to the popular Chye Seng Huat Hardware that popped up last year, and many more. The Bravery is a new kid on the block, joining the growing café scene there just a … Continue reading The Bravery, Jalan Besar

Baker & Cook, Hillcrest Road

Popped by Baker & Cook recently seeking a quick light lunch and was rather pleasantly surprised by it. A simple, unassuming yet chic bakery cafe in Bukit Timah filled with loaves and loaves of beautifully baked breads, the place had a warm, inviting vibe, perhaps due to its wood, white and glass furnishings. I felt comfortable and relaxed, in like a stylish home-away-from-home environment. I … Continue reading Baker & Cook, Hillcrest Road

CRAFT Bakery & CAFE, Holland Village

CRAFT Bakery & CAFE is the latest addition to the growing café scene at Holland Village, joining the likes of Hatched, Park, and d’Good Cafe. They only just opened last month, July 2013, taking over this spot from Cold Rock Creamery. I was going to wait till I got the chance to visit it during the day to try out their coffee (they use Papa Palheta beans) and have lunch there before writing … Continue reading CRAFT Bakery & CAFE, Holland Village

Symmetry, Jalan Kubor

Another cafe review! I just love spending weekends at cafes, enjoying some nice coffee and brunch, and watching the world go by. And since there are just so many new establishments in the Singapore cafe scene at any one time, I just have to go around trying out these places too. So, Symmetry is one of these fairly new additions (but then again, which ones aren’t, really) … Continue reading Symmetry, Jalan Kubor
