The Ultimate Guide: Singapore’s Top Cafes

Currently 118 stores in 17 countries. From Kyoto, Oman, Hong Kong to Singapore at last. Rain or shine, if you find a simple shop on Arab Street, you’ll find it crowded with customers lining up for coffee. 


The owner’s farm in Hawaii produces the coffee beans, which are then grown, roasted, and processed using a Slayer machine (the best espresso maker we know). The coffee is excellent, as it should be. Junichi Yamaguchi, the company’s global chief barista and a world champion in latte art, created every flat white and iced latte on the menu. 


Save for the Matcha Latte, everything else is pretty standard, such as the Classic Espresso, Cafe Latte and Spanish Latte.

From the unique pairing of coffee and burgers and donburi bowl,  Columbus Coffee Co. is  a certified quality cafe. Columbus Coffee Co. more than holds its own despite being located right in the middle of central Singapore’s go-to destination for cafe food, Upper Thomson. Their house blend is the same as Atlas’ – Guatemalan and Brazilian beans custom-roasted by 2 Degrees North Coffee Co. Although it shares a similarly gastronomically adventurous concept with Atlas Coffeehouse, the food menu at Columbus Coffee Co. has the greater variety,

The satisfying yet light Fried Chicken Burger with Curly Fries (exclusive at Columbus Coffee Co.) is a good choice, while the robustly sour, citrusy Mussels with Coconut Lemongrass and Ale best represents the proprietors’ dedication to culinary exploration. The Milky Way, their classic white cold brew, is the best beverage to accompany this meal.

If you want to smell the magic of the rarest coffees roasting. It all happens right in front of your eyes at the Atlas Coffeehouse. It serves a house blend custom-roasted by Singaporean company 2 Degrees North Coffee Co. It’s a combination of Guatamalan and Brazilian beans that gives notes of chocolate, nuts, and caramel. Inexperienced coffee drinkers beware, the aftertaste can be rather strong and bitter. 


Instead of serving typical café classics like eggs benedict and avocado on toast, they now serve meals like Chicken Stew and Bacon Kedgeree that assert a little more culinary ambition.
