We’re always on the lookout for new fab spots and cool hangouts for brunch and coffee. Thankfully here in Singapore, our food scene is incredibly colourful and there are new eateries popping up all the time. Whether you’re looking for desserts, coffee or brunch, we’ve got you covered with these new cafes to check out in Singapore!
1. Café Natsu
Think Western brunch classics with a Japanese flair! Helmed by Lewis Barker, head chef of the Michelin-starred Sommer, Café Natsu serves contemporary dishes using the freshest Japanese ingredients. Dining here is a luxurious yet comforting affair, and the menu is impressive with hearty dishes like Wagyu Beef Sando, Shio Kombu Gnocchi and Mochi Fried Doughnuts!
2. Waga Waga Den
A cafe and lifestyle concept by Black Cow, Waga Waga Den is beautifully designed with minimalistic Japanese futurist aesthetics. A small enclave in the CBD area, stepping in here will make you feel like you’re being transported away to Japan or a Korean suburb. Treat yourself to Japanese sweets and wagyu-themed snacks when you’re here. And don’t forget to indulge in a cuppa! Its house blend is a mix of single-origin Brazilian and Guatemalan beans, and they’re freshly roasted on the same day it arrives in Singapore!
3. Well Collective
Opening in early July, Well Collective is a sister cafe of well-loved Botany and The Ritual. Come for their house-made deli, bakes, and brunch delights, and they also have a dinner menu if you’re here late in the day. Did we also mention that Well Collective is pet-friendly? If you have a four-legged friend, you can dine at the cafe’s alfresco area. There’s even a pet salon and vet next door, so you can hang out with a cup of joe while your furkid gets a groom.
Make sure to add Missus to your life if you’re looking for new halal cafes to check out in Singapore! The pastel pink bohemian-themed cafe has a full-scale central bakery next door that dishes out all sorts of yummy brunch dishes and house-made bakes. Enjoy some Cinnamon French Toast with a side of house-made coffee caramel cream & salted coffee nut crumbs, or try one of their many versions of grilled cheese, such as the Slumdog Grillionaire that features their signature cheese blend, masala potato, coriander pesto and tomato chutney!
5. Epigram Coffee Bookshop
Epigram Coffee Bookshop is a coffee bookshop offering only local Singapore books. After a short-lived comeback in cooperation with Huggs Coffee at the URA Centre, the coffee bookshop unfortunately had to shutter its doors again after less than a month. The great news is they’ve opened a new 20-seater coffee bookshop with Balestier Market Collective at Singapore Art Museum @ Tanjong Pagar Distripark! Grab a delicious cup of joe and pair it with a book from Epigram’s curated list of local reads.
