This New Year, make drinking better coffee your resolution with our best picks from Mandarin Gallery and Downtown Gallery!
1. Omotesando Koffee
Get your caffeine fix from Tokyo’s famous Omotesando Koffee right in the heart of Singapore’s CBD. Omotesando Koffee started as a pop-up concept in the Shibuya district of Tokyo in 2011 and has since grown vastly across Hong Kong, Bangkok, London and Singapore. Perhaps some things can be kept traditional and that includes the intricacy and meticulousness, Omotesando Koffee puts into brewing their legendary coffee. There’s something rather exquisite about its minimalistic interior accompanied with a cuppa and its signature cube-shaped custard cake that’s a must try when you visit.

Tea leaves are harvested from the world’s best tea plantations and sourced from the best tea markets, guaranteed to leave you pumped throughout the day.

6. The Autobus
Where else would you get your caffeine fix past the golden hours of the day? The Autobus, that’s where – they’ve extended their coffee hours till 8PM daily just so you’d get to satisfy your caffeine craving late into the evening. If you’re ever in the CBD, we’d recommend diving head first into their Chai Latte – their rendition is two times spicier and a whole lot more aromatic with their in-house blended beans infused with Ceylon tea.
