Tucked below a HDB block in Waterloo Centre, Clap Café is a cosy joint with excellent coffee, decent bakes, and a calming ambience that's just right for the remote worker. Try the warming dirty chocolate or – for a kick of caffeine that's not too bitter – the cremé brulée latte. If you're hungry for a bite, you can try the basque burnt cheesecake (more reminiscent of a Japanese cheesecake, we think) or maple pecan pie.
Looking for a quiet place to do work but not a fan of the stuffy office or library environment? We don't blame you, being cooped up in a cubicle all day drives even the calmest among us crazy. We also understand that not everyone has an ideal work-from-home set-up. Venture beyond your friendly, neighbourhood Starbucks and settle down with free Wi-Fi, power points and a good cuppa to get your productivity game on at these cafés instead.
