    One of the longer standing gourmet coffee hangouts with reliably strong brews and an ace location in the city centre for a shopping pitstop near Orchard Central/313 Somerset.

    Best coffee around Orchard! They takeaway counter closes at 5pm but the cafe/bar serves coffee till 11pm on Sun-Thu and 12am on Fri/Sat

    Good coffee (including competition coffee: a couple of coffee concoctions they come up with from time to time), tea, and outdoor seating for some people watching in the heart of Orchard Road.

    I was skeptical going in because of the fancy interior and a list location. But the pour over coffee is well made and the beans are on point. Plus, only 5 SGD. Go.

    Must try the spicy calamari. It's not your usual batter-fried stuff. Each squid ring is coated with a masala and paprika rub which gives it a tangy, spicy flavour.

    Proper flat white using double espresso shots. You taste the difference from other places who claim a flat white when it is just a latte.

    Best coffee you can get in Orchard. It also serves the best fish and chips I eaten in Singapore!

    This was a disappointment. Went for the Cappu (always do when I test the quality) with a bad result, almost the same as a latte. Great beans though! Now removed from my Great Coffee in Singapore list. Read more

    Beef cheek tagliatalle: the cow must have been slapped silly bcos the meat is soooo tender & flavorful. I'm surprised it's even still intact even after my teeth sink into this dish. 

    Try the beef cheek tagiatelle, fish and chips and the Jamaican "Jerk" chicken. Oh, and if you're here on Saturdays there's a live band from 8pm - 10pm

    The Cubano sandwich is hands down one of the best sandwiches you can get in Singapore. Deceptively simple but full of flavour and texture. Yums!

    They "vegetarian-ized" a dish for us. The waiter didn't hesitate for a second. He just said, "Sure, we can do that." Very rare in everything-by-the-book Singapore. Thumbs up!

    Had the Southern Fried chicken and waffles that day. What we got was tasteless chicken from a packet and 3/4 a waffle doused in an overly sweet maple bourbon sauce. Avoid this dish.

    Never get yourself a fresh juice here. When asked whether it's freshly squeezed, the waitress explained: It's from the bottle with a label that reads freshly squeezed. Wow.

    Avoid! On a first look: healthy & gluten-free options but all is loaded with sugar including kale salad. Unfortunately their espresso drinks are bad - burnt, overexteacted and piccolo is huge!
