Wondering where you can get the best coffee in Singapore?
Singapore actually has a healthy number of cafes you can choose from when seeking the perfect brew. Singaporeans love their morning cuppa, so there’s no shortage of interest here in good coffee.
But if you seek only the best, most aromatic, most perfectly roasted beans going into your cup, there are certain places to go to for best results.
We’ve listed those places here, in today’s roundup. Without further ado, let’s have a look at the top spots for those seeking the best coffee in Singapore!
1. Five Oars Coffee Roasters
Coffee is an intense yet subtle beverage at this cafe. A cup of their espresso demonstrates this perfectly.

Five Oars Coffee Roasters also boasts a minimalist style to its interiors that seems destined for quiet coffee time.
