I had some 'Kopi' and it was after my stroll through Chinatown. Great place for some authentic Singaporean coffee, with a bit of history to it. They even have a small museum for you to check out.

If you're in Chinatown I would recommend stopping in for a cuppa. I grabbed one each morning as it's one of the few cafes open at 7am which is a huge bonus

Having arrived in Singapore the night before I was hungry in the morning and looking for a good breakfast with decent coffee near my hotel in Chinatown. This place was just what I needed.

Nothing really wrong with this place. Coffee and food good and very Chinese with a western style self service. Only complaint is that the stools to sit on are tiny and not best suited to the more ample bottom that I have.

Stopped at the original outlet in Chinatown after lunch earlier in the week for some tea and kaya toast. Not too busy on a weekday lunchtime and as a result service was quite efficient. Tea and toast were pretty much the same as anywhere else.

My lunch companion had the Assam fish while I ordered the pork knuckle. The pork knuckle which was braised comes with an egg. It was a delicious dish and goes well with steamed rice. The Assam fish was very spicy but deliciously cooked with tomatoes and okra

Beautiful little place with a nice atmosphere, pleasant staff and a general good vibe - Had coffee, kaya toast and egg which were all absolutely worth the price ($4.80? for a decent breakfast with fancy coffee). Great way to start the day!

The best local coffee around this part of town. Service could have been better though - the cashier was curt and rude. Pity, could have aced 5 stars.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown is a classic combination of colorful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
