Revamped and on point. Botanico at the Botanic Gardens has had a new breath of life sweep through with the arrival of a new team and renovation. A gorgeous lush spot to dine under fairy lights over gorgeous pan-Asian fare and great cocktails.

The latest arrival on the chic Martin Road row, this is a refreshing new relaxed dining choice by the PS Cafe Group. Fusion Japanese in a beautiful space bathed in natural light.

The Guild

Named for craftsmen associations of the past, this super slick new hotspot in Keong Saik Road represents everything we love at Off Orchard. The handcrafted theme runs deep here, from the culinary offerings, to the excellent craft beer menu to the warm and personalised service.
55 Keong Saik Road, Singapore 089158

The Butcher’s Wife

Celiacs and gluten-free advocates rejoice, ain't no grain in Tiong Bahru's latest game. Taking over the old Open Door Policy digs in Yong Siak is this dedicated gluten-free restaurant that dishes up brave, contemporary cooking that will make your heart sing and your stomach smile.
19 Yong Siak Street, Singapore 168650

Cheek By Jowl

One of our best dining experiences of late. This one Michelin star, super slick, mod-Oz haunt in pumping little Boon Tat is receiving rave reviews all over town.
21 Boon Tat Street, Singapore 069620


The Social Space

Tucked away little gem with great coffee, healthy bites and a socially conscious foundation that's quite frankly just good for the soul. This multi-concept cafe just off the Keong Saik neighbourhood opened late last year with the aim to provide a cool yet socially inclusive space, focusing on low-waste and conscious living.
333 Kreta Ayer Rd, Singapore 080333

Tiong Bahru Bakery (Chip Bee)

Possibly our all-time favourite coffee house, now open on the Chip Bee strip. Excellent coffee, fresh industrial vibes and pastries with that perfect balance of sticky, salty and sweet (err... if you know what we mean). These guys are on fire right now.
43 Jalan Merah Saga, Singapore 278115

Twenty Eight Cafe

A freelancer's dream - we're loving this new industrial chic space in a quiet street with great beats, open early, stable wifi, power sockets, and most importantly, bloody good coffee.
28 Wilkie Road, Singapore 228051

One Man Coffee

A gem tucked away in Upper Thomson serving up excellent coffee, and the largest fried chicken sandwich in town.
215R Upper Thomson Road Singapore, 574349


What more can you ask for on a lazy Sunday morning? Gorgeous outdoor patio. Amazing avocado toast. Washed down with a cold brew.
32 North Canal Road Singapore, 059288

Bearded Bella

Hidden away in the back streets of Tanjong Pagar is this sweet little Melbourne-inspired cafe, with a subtle tropical twist. Gorgeous instagrammable interiors, good coffee, and the food tastes as good as it looks!
