Coffee Academics

Hailing from Hong Kong, these guys are serious about their coffee and it remains one of the best along Orchard Road, with a second outlet recently opened at Raffles Place.

And if you take your coffee fix just as seriously, you won’t be disappointed.

Now into their eighth year, these guys are well and truly succeeding on their mission to make specialty coffee accessible and exciting.They have been one of the major players in recent times revolutionising the Singapore cafe scene and we hail them for it!

The original Coffee Academics in Scotts Square is a large space you can usually score a table, but we love how it still somehow maintains its intimacy.

The menu is also extensive, with coffee of every variety and bean the star of the show, supported by a strong artisanal tea menu and great breakfasts and desserts.

This is a solid pick for excellent coffee any time of day, and a much welcomed peaceful oasis on a road that never sleeps.

Perfect for a quiet coffee and chat with a friend.
