Happiness in a cup. Love the Tiong Bahru area too. Super peaceful. Be aware of the mosquitos though - they’re fierce! Maybe sit inside if needed?

Tucked in the suburban area of Tiong Bahru in Singapore, Forty Hands fuels locals with a delectable selection of white coffee. Their macchiato, latte, and flat white are crowd-favorites! For more full-bodied and robust options, just ask the barista. Forty Hands’ food menu is largely influenced by Australia’s third-wave coffee scene, so expect large savory meals to satisfy your appetite.

Forty Hands’ strong, smooth, and tasty artisanal brews keep Tiong Bahru going. The cafe’s white coffee selections are a must-try, especially if you’re a fan of caffeine that’s a little less robust. Drop by before lunch hour for a scrumptious brunch before exploring the neighborhood’s collection of shops, galleries, and bookstores. Forty Hands is tucked in a suburban area, so keep your eyes peeled for quaint spaces!

Pacamara might possibly be my most favourite café in the entire world. They have everything from kitchen gadgets to stouts. Their ambience boasts of crisp white walls, minimalist furniture with consistent touches of wood, high ceilings with floor length windows - yet it still impressively manages to stay laid back and relaxing despite its constant hubbub. Pacamara routinely changes their menu, which definitely has its pros and cons - though if you’re lucky, your no. 1 pick might linger a while longer if it’s a crowd favourite so fingers crossed! My all time favourite from them was their carbonara with prosciutto ham, emphasis on the was because it’s been replaced, although it was on the menu for a pretty loooong time. Their latest menu was launched on 30 May 2019. Their coffee selection isn’t as wide, but as a former barista, I have to say that the way they prepare their coffee is consistent and their beans are always excellent. You even get to choose your preferred type of coffee beans - robusta or arabica. Like their menu, they routinely rotate their bean options. If you’re unsure, they have well trained staff/baristas that are more than willing to assist you, even I sometimes seek their advice. Price wise, Pacamara is definitely on the pricier side (as you can see from their latest menu that I’ve cheekily stolen from their website for my, and yours’, convenience) which they make up for in their generous portions, fresh ingredients and consistently impeccable cooking. Their food is the one that definitely separates them from any other cafe (especially along Thomson Road) All in all I absolutely recommend Pacamara to locals and tourists alike. If you’re looking for a place to work, catch-up with a friend, a family friendly spot or you just want to try a new place with wicked grub, Pacamara is the place to be.
