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?

The name Forty Hands probably comes from the droves of hungry patrons trying to claw their way into the cafe to get a taste of their wobbly Eggs Benedict—oozing with hollandaise sauce on soft brioche buns. Even if it’s 2:00PM, it’s still a perfectly acceptable time for breakfast if you’re trying to dodge the crowd at Tiong Bahru.

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!

The dazzlingly white interiors of the Pacamara Boutique is a great way to perk yourself up in the morning. This cozy coffee cubby offers a comfy environment and an extensive Day Menu for taking it slow before the day’s grind. Get in a filling breakfast of Salmon Confit or Eggs Florentine before going about your day.

A favorite haunt among fans of Aussie-style specialty coffee, Sarnies is an unpretentious spot that offers robust coffee flavors made with double ristretto. Fight mid-day slumps with a cup of Guatemalan blend latte, which features bright and fruity notes that give off a nutty flavor; or an off-menu Orange Mocha, which is made exclusively for regular customers and friends of baristas. If you opt to enjoy coffee at home, their signature blends are also accessible through a coffee subscription service that delivers straight to your doorstep.
