Singapore has seen an increase in coffee lovers, and that’s well-represented by the sheer numbers of coffee cafes that have sprouted up around every part of Singapore. The majority of the working people need their everyday shot of caffeine to get moving in the morning. But coffee is not only a requirement –it is something to be also appreciated. A flavourful cup of java is a fantastic companion for a mid-afternoon day, especially in a lovely ambience and cosy setting. Tropika Club curates seven cosy coffee cafes in Singapore that are absolutely worth your time and money, yet they don’t burn a hole in your pockets.

1. Apartment Coffee
From the decor to the friendly baristas, everything relating to this brightly coloured white vanilla cafe is geared towards making clients feel like they’re seeing a friend. Apartment Coffee‘s coffee is most likely somewhat better than average, since the cafe is helmed by a former Singapore Brewers Cup winner. Regardless of the casual setting, java is taken seriously here. They do not do takeaways, and every order of coffee is combined by a little card with tasting notes. Anticipate to pay approximately $4.50 for white java and $5.50 to $7 for brewed java.

This fashionable Joo Chiat area is marked with a glowing white corridor with a seating arrangement which is pretty unique, leading to the kitchen and retail area inside. at Home Ground Coffee Roasters, Vanta is a 50/50 mix of Colombian and Brazillian beans which conveys nutty, chocolatey notes in Long Black ($4) type. There’s also the Level Up Kaya Toast ($8), which replicates the coffeeshop goodness of Hokkaido milk toast, kaya spread and a delectable sous vide egg. Delicious.

3. Chye Seng Huat Hardware Coffee

It has a lot of appeal for the Instagrammers, with its industrial-chic as well as an updated mural outside its shophouse wall. While the cafe features a substantial food menu, coffee remains the star of this series here, supplied by veteran roasters PPP Coffee.
