An old warehouse metamorphosed into a bicycle atelier and café, Wheeler’s Yard puts a lovely twist into the phrase coffee shop. A bicycle as a table centerpiece? Yes. A blue instagrammable entrance door? Yes. You can tell that the owners take cycling personally. Try their Salmon Royale, Lu Lu Sotong, or their hot chocolate. You will end up taking plenty of photos of the interior while you wait!
Upon entering Pacamara Boutique Coffee Roasters, your mood will instantly improve. The café’s neat interior and subdued colors are relaxing. This place is the favorite for young professionals and students who perk up their studies with awesome food and great ambience. Try the creative French toast and Sticky Date Pancake–two of the bestsellers on the menu. If you are coming alone, bring a book or your diary: the place makes the perfect company for a lovely date with yourself.
You can never go wrong with the combination of brown wood and green–earthly elements that not only fascinate the eyes, but also the heart. The place looks and feels magical: vines curling down, pine trees standing erect, and clocks in little wooden houses curtaining the wall. These tiny details will make you love Stuttgart Blackforest Boutique S-Café. And the food is equally magical.

There is something about places that choose white as their main color. No, they are not boring to look at; rather, the simple palette is the main selling point. Boufe Boutique Café is that kind of place. It draws inspiration in simplicity and the elegance of its white interior, punctuated with carefully maneuvered black edges–and its food is simply mouthwatering.
Carefully named places can get people’s attention; for example, the Curious Palette. The name itself asks you to pay attention to its elegance and mystery. The white, brown, and grey tone is perfectly mixed to give that ambience of neatness, elegance, and functionality. Try the Berry Ricotta Hotcake, which looks like a flower mandala, and let the flavors bloom in your mouth.
Singapore is a lovely place for your taste buds. Its mixed tradition–Malay, Chinese, and Indian–is enough reason to get adventurous with this little country and venture out there.
