Top 10 Best Cafe in Singapore

1:05:00 AM

With more than 100 cool cafes merging out, it can be hard for people to keep track of them. Hence, we are here to help you guys to check out some unique and instagrammable café in Singapore.

1) Atlas Coffeehouse

Atlas, not ‘atas’ coffeeshop. Just because this café is located at Bukit Timah doesn’t mean that it is ‘atas’ (meaning ‘above’ in Malay, ‘high class’ in Singlish). Atlas Coffeehouse is helmed by the team behind Assembly Coffee, known for their Shibuya toasts, waffles and coffee.
ATLAS is the acronym for At-Land-Air-Sea, and the interior reflects part of the theme. Industrial cemented walls to represent the Land, natural sunlight (and air) pouring in at the window seats, deep navy blue region with white tiles shaped in a wave-like manner representing the Sea.
We hear their Eclipse Cold Tea Macchiato is one to try, alongside particularly fluffy Banana Butterscotch Pancakes and an impressive Mediterranean Pita Fry Up.

Address: 6 Duke’s Rd, Singapore 268886
Opening hours: Tue-Sun 8am – 7pm                                                                                                     
                            Closed Mon

2) Clan Café

Clan Cafe is Strait Clan’s all-day lobby lounge and the members club’s only space open to public. The beverage program also includes coffee sourced from Papa Palheta, beers, and cocktails while the food menu features delicious grain bowls (think red and brown rice, koshihikari and red quinoa topped with Miso Salmon and Grilled Angus Ribeye), salads, bar snacks, and desserts.

Address:  Straits Clan, 31–37, Bukit Pasoh Road, Singapore 089845
Opening hours: Mon-Sat 10am-10pm.
                           Closed Sun.

3) Sarnies

There’s a reason why Sarnies remains one of the longest standing cafés in Singapore. Operating in the heart of Telok Ayer since 2011, this bustling spot has gained a cult-like status among coffee fanatics, healthy food proponents, and legions of tired office workers itching for a good cuppa and DIY breakfast.
 Lunch time sees satisfying eats like the Mexican Salad, and once the weekend hits, the bearded hipsters and personal trainers are out in full force for a heaping plate of Eggs Benedict. That, and a double shot latte to kick start the festivities.

Address:  136 Telok Ayer St, Singapore 068601
Opening hours: Mon-Tue 7.30am – 10.30pm
                            Wed-Fri 7.30am – 11.30pm, 8.30am – 4pm.

4) Stranger’s Reunion

Home to the former World Siphon Coffee Champion and three-time Singapore National Barista & Latte Art Champion Ryan Kieran Tan, Strangers’ Reunion has continued to push its standards over the years. Popular drinks include the potent White Magic and their Seven-Spice Chai Latte, or you could just go for any of the hand-brewed cuppas on hand that week. Food-wise, the café has a penchant for healthier but no less tasty dishes, which suits in just fine.

Address:  33 Kampong Bahru Rd, Singapore 169356
Opening hours: Wed-Mon 9am – 10pm.
                            Closed Tue.

5) Kurasu

Straight from Kyoto comes artisanal coffee shop Kurasu and its beautiful selection of beans shipped in from the land of the rising sun. Think Ethiopia Guji Shakiso Decaf and Indonesian Wahana by Taoca Coffee, as well as a selection from All Seasons Coffee in Tokyo.

Address:  331 North Bridge Rd, Odeon Towers #02-01, Singapore 188720
Opening hours: Mon-Fri 9am – 6pm
                            Sat-Sun 12pm – 6pm.

6) Pacamara Boutique Coffee Roasters

Pacamara, started by the team behind Thomson’s OZ Speciality Coffee, is just as much known for their excellent coffee as they are the food, including heaping plates of roast chicken, steak frites, and crab meat linguine. Speciality offerings rotate on a weekly basis and include a single origin Huila Timana from Colombia, Nano Challa from Ethiopia, Don Eli from Costa Rica, and El Matazano from Honduras, which was recently ranked in the Cup of Excellence.

Address:  185 Upper Thomson Rd, Singapore 574333.
Opening hours: Daily 9am – 10pm.

7) Toby’s Estate

Toby’s rocks! Think a massive wooden communal table, an al fresco seating area, yummy sandwiches and wraps, and above all else, the consistently delicious excellent coffee. Look to the side and you’ll regularly see the fresh beans being roasted right before your eyes, all in the name of this iconic Australian institution.

Address: 8 Rodyk St #01-03/04, Singapore 238216
Operating Hours: Sun-Thu 7.30am – 6pm
                             Fri-Sat 7.30am – 8pm

8) 1KS

KS is opened by the folks behind Park Bench Deli, working with two boutique roasters, including Papa Palheta, to create two unique blends: one customised with Guatemalan and Indonesian beans for a smooth chocolate texture with notes of toffee and fruits, and another which combines Guatemalan and Colombian beans, resulting in a rich and nutty profile. And as you can expect, their sandwiches are mighty delicious too.

Address: 1 Keong Saik Rd, #01-02, Singapore 089109
Operating Hours: Mon-Fri 8am – 9pm
                             Sat-Sun 9am – 6pm

9) Punch 

Great brunch vibes are about at Punch, where natural lights are aplenty and the decor monochromatic and Instagram-able. For the perfect afternoon, dive into stacks of Earl Grey Pancakes and for the indulgent, perhaps a bowl of Tomato Bacon Soup with Grilled Cheese Toast. Whether you’re going for a batch brew, Chemex, V60, or even a Chai Latte, it’s safe to say that the drinks here are fabulous.

Address: 32 North Canal Rd, Singapore 059288
Operating Hours: Tue-Sun 8am – 6pm


Ronin has been a mainstay along the trendy HongKong Street since 2013, offering its iconic Genovese ‘Super Brazil’ coffee along with a short but much-lauded repertoire of sandwiches and breakfast staples. The place is usually very crowded, so we recommend heading down on off-peak hours.

Address: 17 Hong Kong St, Singapore 059660
Operating Hours: Daily 8am – 6pm
