Time Out says

Friendly warning! We're working hard to be accurate. But these are unusual times, so please check that venues remain open.

Sometimes, it's better to keep things simple. Lucid's interiors of grey and white – with its milky countertops, concrete floor and metallic accents – make for an Instagrammable spot. But it's more than just a treat for the eyes. The minimalist hide-out also serves cups of quality brews by co-owner Andrea Tan, the first National Brewers’ Cup champion in Singapore.

Pull up and settle down in an industrial-looking, matte-grey chair. Lucid's menu reflects its minimalist philosophy as well – you’ll only find that coffee and a small selection of bakes are available. Espresso-based drinks (from $4) are pulled from beans of medium-dark roast, with hints of chocolate and citrus, while the seasonal brew (from $5) features a washed Ethiopian blend with floral, fruity notes. There are three types of tea – oolong, sencha, and hojicha latte – from local teahouse Hvala as well.

Grab a cuppa for your caffeine fix, and dig into bakes of brownies crowned with hazelnuts and fluer de sel ($4.50) or banana bread ($4.50). But the most popular option is the Cloud Beta v0.1 ($9), an adorable cloud-like cake made from white chocolate mousse with a strawberry basil filling.
