Project Espresso Love - The final Singapore Café roundup

Some of you on Facebook may have noticed that during the month of November I gave myself the onerous task of checking out Singapore's burgeoning cafe scene, using my own taste & preferences to separate the good coffee beans from the bad.

Soooo, after a month of pounding the pavements, subjecting myself to copius amounts of caffeine (and therefore sleepness nights), my favourite Singapore café list is now complete (until the next round of cafés open that is!). For more detailed descriptions, please visit Brunch & Co's page on Facebook.

Hope you enjoy it and find it useful. Let me know of any new cafés you happen to discover :-)

My Favourite Cafés for the coffee 

Jewel Coffee, 1 Shenton Way, #01-07 - Handy CBD location, deliciously perfect cuppa. (Closed Sundays)

Nylon Coffee Roasters, 4 Everton Park, #01-40 - Tiny shopfront, that's a little hard to find, from where they only sell great tasting coffee... (Closed Tuesdays)

Liberty Coffee, 131 Rangoon Rd - Not often open (you need to "like" their Facebook page to hear about their open days). Delicious cuppa, and great cakes to boot.

My Favourite café for the food

Sarnies, 136 Telok Ayer St - PROPER sandwiches & other yummy treats especially on the weekend when they serve a delectable brunch menu.

My Favourite café for the ambience

Club Street Social, 5 Gemmil Lane – beautiful fit out like a cool NYC bistro

My Favourite café for the service

The Big Sheila, 15 Swan Lake Avenue, Siglap - Lovely service, felt like I was entering a fancy friend's dining room. Personal service from one of the ladies working there showed that she knew all about the food she was serving in great detail - very impressive! (Closed Sundays)
