Been here twice. Once for lunch 3 years ago where we tried 3 out of the 4 sandwich choices. They were OK, but not memorable.

This time, we dropped in to meet friends before leaving Singapore. It's not a great place for kids as it's really small, but good to hang out with a book. Large cappuccino (SGD 7) was way too milky so not to my taste. Fresh OJ and the orange blossom carrot cake were stellar!

Stumbled upon this place by accident while looking for a coffee fix. Amazing espresso options. Love the latte and the art is pretty good too. Their toasties are tasty too. All in all a pretty chill place. Check it out if you are in the area!

...a perfectly run neighborhood cafe: great ambiance, vibe, and music programming. But also, perfectly pulled espresso shots, coffee choices, bites, and friendly service. Go here.

Solid place to hit for a decent coffee, get involved. Staff always friendly and coffee comes out pretty quick. Bags the couch, best seat going
