café | sg: A Cafe Lover’s Guide to Singapore
Singapore’s food scene is renowned for its raucous hawker centres and world-class gourmet restaurants, but in recent years it is its cosmopolitan café industry that has been charting a caffeine-fuelled course to take over the country. The island is now bursting at the seams with dozens of coffee spots, from gleaming industrial-chic java joints in the centre of town to hole-in-the wall hipster hangouts dotting nearly all residential neighbourhoods. Even the city’s local kopi stalwarts are enjoying a resurgence, with millennials newly discovering the coffee houses that once provided their grandparents with butter-enriched brews with which to wash down their kaya toast and eggs.

café | sg: A Café Lover’s Guide to Singapore, the first book of its kind here, offers a timely snapshot of this java zeitgeist sweeping the nation. This handy guide profiles 50 of the best-known and best-hidden cafés on the island, all providing their own java juices to make Singapore the city that never sleeps. Written by award-winning, coffee-loving young
journalists from The Straits Times newsroom, this volume is guaranteed to give readers a caffeine high. Accompanying the succinct but richly detailed descriptions of each café are artistic photos as well as helpful information such as price guides, websites, opening hours, addresses and walking directions from the nearest MRT station.

Published by Straits Times Press, café | sg: A Café Lover’s Guide to Singapore will be launched this year at the very first coffee-centric festival celebrating Singapore’s unique café culture.

THE SINGAPORE COFFEE FESTIVAL will debut in June at the F1 Pit Building, bringing together 100 exhibitors from the coffee and café industry for some 15,000 coffee and café lovers who are expected to attend. Major players such as Common Man Coffee Roasters, Chye Seng Huat Hardware, Oriole Coffee + Bar and Smitten Specialty Coffee will showcase their
caffeine chops, amid a smorgasbord of local music, local movies, local retailers and talks by local journalists. Whether you’re a caffeine junkie, a bean snob or a casual latte drinker,
this compendium is the perfect companion to help you navigate Singapore’s café trails. Stuff it in your vegan leather satchel and use its conveniently appended notes pages to jot down your caffeine - powered observations and epiphanies.
