Nothing feels as good as awakening your senses with a good ol’ cup of joe. Besides keeping you alert when you feel tired, coffee has a host of awesome health benefits. Studies have shown that coffee drinkers lower their risk of getting Alzheimer’s Disease by up to 65%. Also, coffee plays a part in melting away body fat!
Coffee lovers, we’ve put together a list of places in Singapore that you should include in your coffee bucket list. So go forth and treat your taste buds.
Today, Evolve Daily shares 8 Best Places for Coffee in Singapore:
1) Atlas Coffeehouse
With a big space to chill out in, the newly opened Atlas Coffeehouse is the perfect place for a weekend brunch gathering.
Their coffee beans are a blend of 30% Guatemala and 70% Brazil, from Two Degrees North Coffee Co. So you can expect a nice, strong brew! And if you’re feeling hungry, try their Butterscotch Banana Pancake – we promise you won’t regret it.

2) Nylon Coffee Roasters
Born out of a strong passion for coffee, Nylon goes around the world to source, roast and brew quality coffee. So it comes as no surprise that it’s highly recommended by Singapore’s coffee connoisseurs.

Working professionals sometimes get their coffee at The New Black, which is located in the heart of the CBD. Featuring a diverse range of coffee as bold as its interior – which is covered in bright colors and pop art – coffee lovers will be spoilt for choice when looking at the taste wheel.
If you’re the kind that falls in love and stays in love with that specific coffee flavor, then The New Black is the place for you! This is because every cup of coffee is consistent, and made with a fusion of traditional brewing methods and the latest technology.

Opened by Singapore National Barista Champion Ryan Kieran Tan, Strangers’ Reunion is a must-go for all coffee fanatics. This cozy coffee joint might take you awhile to locate (but it’s worth it!)

Also, you can watch the roasters draw out the coffee’s best flavors.

Dapper is a comfy café which is great for relaxing, and enjoying some nice coffee which is brewed with their house blend. If you’re feeling adventurous, go for their unique beverages such as the sparkly blue Unicorn Tears and the Gold Brew.
When night falls, Dapper Coffee transforms into The Spiffy Dapper, which is a bar! So if you’re in the mood for some drinks after your coffee, stay on and grab some cocktails.

As we mentioned earlier, coffee helps to burn fat – and it also gives you an energy boost! So why not use all that energy to train with a World Champion? After enjoying your coffee, of course.
