We love to hang out over coffee! Because most of us are easties, at times, you can find us Craftsmen Specialty Coffee. We love their, what else.. coffee! It’s a pity that they close pretty early, for Singapore which comes alive at night! O yes, and clearly, Elyn was in a world of her own…
Other than going to the cinema and eating, the next favourite past time must be chilling at a cafe. Cafe after cafe, and still more cafes are springing up in Singapore. From the fancier ones in town, to the cosy ones in the housing areas, many are worth a visit. During weekends, avoid peak coffee/tea break hours (3pm or so) to ensure that you and your friends get a seat. Some cafes do serve brunch. Some are so popular that you might need to make a reservation before visiting (we checked out Spruce and Wheeler’s Yard too). Late evenings (9pm) on Fridays and Saturdays are also peak cafe hours. For brunch, expect to spend about $15 to $30, depending on where you dine at. A coffee would set you back at about $5-$7, and a slice of cake, $6-$8.
With the crowd, expect some chatter. If you prefer peace and quiet – coffee with a book in hand, visiting cafes on weekday might be a better option for you.
