Great Teh C !

Loved the Teh C and the kaya toast here- it was fun to sit at this cafe and watch the world go by ! Frequented by the locals as well - a sure sign of value for money.

Serving traditional food all day long. The shop is always busy from the moment it opens at 6am to closing time. Food is delicious & consistently prepared, the same for the drink, coffee & tea & other drinks taste the same every time. Can be hard to find a seat, may have to wait a while at breakfast, lunch &...

Killiney Kopitiam at Changi. My meal came with a used spoon with obvious licking stains on it. When I alert the counter staff, she behaved like its normal, stern face, not apologetic at all but just handed me with another one. Sticky table and sticky floor. This place should close for health concerns and poor staffing.

The coffee and food is not very cheap. It's becoming a tourist trap with many of them coming to try out their formerly good local coffee and toast bread. The roti prata with chicken curry is at least 3x what the next door indian restaurant sell. Yes, this one comes with a bowl of chicken curry and next door is... More

Killiney Kopitiam is a great place for a fast meal/snack. It is in every way a Kopitiam with stools and rough tables and nothing much. The atmosphere is noisy. Order and pre-pay your food. About the only service is when they serve the Food. This is not a criticism. The food is good and reasonably priced for Singapore. We liked... More

I live around the corner from this place and EVERY day, anytime I pass this place is full of locals. That alone recommends it as a great place for a bit. Their kaya toast is delicious, served on crispy white bread with a generous slab of butter. Their kopi is also quite excellent, and they serve one of the best... More

I have had local breakfast at many places but this restaurant by far is the best one yet. Rumors is that they are the one to invented the local breakfast now and they actually have a timeline when the restaurant started almost 100years ago. Overall, the quality of the food is great, reasonable price. Be ready to wait for a... More

had breakfast here most of my visit to Sing. NO wifi! you are here to enjoy your breakfast. The real Killiney kopitiam. Order the breakfast set (2 eggs, kaya toast and coffee). Though its always full, the server is friendly. Come after 9 (you will surely get seat).

This is a good place to enjoy a local Singaporean breakfast - toast, soft boiled eggs and a cup of good Hainanese coffee! It's always busy and crowded but the turnover is fast so just linger around for a while to get a table. It's now a franchise in various countries but this original shop is by far the best... More

I was about to head to Soup restaurant that evening but some workers were trying to lift up the beautiful brand new sign board, Killiney caught my eyes. It was their opening week. Needless to say, I always love their coffee, hawker fare. Seems like the place maybe a franchise n NOT owned by Killiney. I am impressed by the... More
