The possibility of being served a freshly roasted latte and dainty cupcakes by a cute friendly hunk is not something to be missed. Throw in a good book or the company of friends and you’ll be set for a nice lazy afternoon.

In recent years, café culture has taken off in Singapore. New cafés are popping up in every possible corner of Singapore. Being a self-proclaimed cafe addict, I have been exploring this growing cafe scene. Here is my top six that I personally love whenever I need my caffeine fix.

These cafes are all located around Singapore the gay scene in Chinatown, Neil Road and Tanjong Pagar.

Table 24

The classy Table 24 is located one of Chinatown’s historical pre-war shop-houses. It features American cuisine with a touch of Asian fusion. Unpretentious, healthy and affordable.

The folks at The Plain are warm and friendly. The elegantly furnished, spacious dining area features grey walls and yellow lighting that creates a soft and comforting glow. A pleasant environment to spend a few hours sipping coffee and catching-up with friends. Their sandwiches are a delight; their ciabatta buns are toasted to a crisp and  filled with fresh, savory fillings and melted cheese. Yummy.

  1. Group Therapy -three thumbs up!

    “This second floor cafe is a true find. Cozy yet trendy decor, food that is conceived and prepared with attention to detail, a lively and lovely crowd ( mixed) and a lovely staff make this a place to visit when in SG.
