Common Grind at The Row

Instead of the usual junk store/vintage chic interior, this bright and airy shophouse café, located along the revamped Jalan Doraisamy (now known as ‘The Row’) is sleek, modern and cosy. And the best part is, it's usually calm and quiet over here, especially on the weekends. If you’re planning to get some work done, you’d be glad to know there are ample plug points here and the WiFi is fast.

One Half x Ilaika

Order your coffee at the back and enjoy it out at the store front among the potted plants. It’s a leisurely, breezy spot to linger, and very pretty too, if you want to show off to your Instagram followers.

Merchant's Lane

The back portion of the café – where it’s most Instagram-worthy, thanks to the theatrics of hanging (spiral) joss sticks and giant chrysanthemum paintings – is where you’ll find sofas and swing chairs to lie back and chill. It’s the perfect hideaway to escape the outside heat with a drink and a book.

Rubberduck

The new Rubberduck isn’t only bigger in space, the menu has expanded as well. There are now additional choices such as salads, smoothie bowls and hot food on top of their already popular dessert and pastry offerings. The bright and airy space has a tropical resort vibe that will have you staying on long after you’ve finished your meal – come early to snag the rattan lounge chairs.

Someplace Beautiful

Someplace Beautiful

While Someplace Beautiful’s sister outlet next door – the Three Little Birds café – can get really busy on weekends, this tea room remains relatively quiet and crowd-free. There isn’t much on the menu, save for some tea and soft serve; but if all you need is some me-time, you’ll find plenty of peace and quiet here.

Sudo Brew

A 24-hour café with high speed WiFi, plus a kitchen that opens round the clock – need we say more? Keep this for those sleepless nights; you could at least come by and get some work done.
