Goodbyes are always hard, but it’s especially difficult when a beloved café closes. Homeground Coffee Roasters at Teo Hong Road will be closing its doors at the end of April, six years since the café first opened at Joo Chiat. Owners Elysia Tan and Ho Ming Tay have decided to close the café to take a break to reevaluate the Homeground brand moving forward.

Homeground first started in 2017 as an online shop that held occasional pop-ups to bring together coffee enthusiasts. The community eventually grew, leading to the opening of its first café at Joo Chiat in 2018. The café moved to Outram Park in 2022 and introduced delectable treats like the Level Up Kaya Toast, consisting of homemade kaya spread on milk bread, served with sous vide eggs and French butter. Alongside the café, Homeground also introduced the Playground – a brew bar where coffee enthusiasts could try their hand at brewing various coffees with a variety of equipment.

While Homeground Coffee Roasters will be closing down, the roastery at Kim Chuan Drive as well as its online store will remain open. The owners also ensured patrons that this is not the end for the café, but rather the start of a new beginning as they work on realigning the Homeground brand to their new vision.

To celebrate the closure with a bang, Homeground Coffee Roasters is currently collaborating with Bird Bird by Artichoke, and will be serving up delicious Thai food to pair with Homeground’s signature coffees. Stop by during lunch and dinner to try the two different menus, which includes a Thai tea tres leches cake ($12), Khao Soi ($22), and the signature Bird Bird sundae ($10).

Be sure to stop by Homeground Coffee Roasters before April 30, 2024, to say goodbye to the cherished café.
