While they specialise in tarts, and then ventured to dessert and bakes (which are equally good), Drips also serve nice coffee! The beans are from Sister Bruce Coffee Roasters with nut and honey notes and dark chocolate finish. The ratio of coffee to milk is also decent, making it a good post-lunch companion. This flat white is also priced decently at $5.50.

Good coffee, smooth and not acidic, with decent caffeinating power. The blend is by Sarnies.

Aside of their wonderfully done bagels, TMBH serves great Cold Brew too! The bottled caffeines are available in two variants, The Hare (black) and The Tortoise (white). It is creamy and smooth, slightly sweet as the proportion skews a little bit to the milk side, while the coffee base is solid and chocolate-y.

What is going to a specialty coffee place without getting their specialty coffee? Though the IG page claims that they serve one from Kyoto, it turned out this time they serve coffee from a local roaster. It is definitely alright in terms of taste #supportlocal, just the discrepancy. However it is still a great hot black and nice aesthetic airy space to spend some time in the area!

Just like what Kyoto and the surrounding region do really well, the Singapore outpost of Kurasu does their matcha latte equally well. It seems that they get their own matcha supplies from Uji itself, and the difference in milk used does not seem to make this drink less special than its original counterpart. The seating area is small, talk long sofas with social distancing markers, and post lunch it can be crowded from students and office workers nearby, but the staff are still very prompt and friendly manning this new spacious, airy, Kyoto-esque feel space of theirs.

They specially showcase certain blends for certain type of drinks. This is white with a nutty, chocolate-y Brazil beans from Denmark's Coffee Collective (the other beans are from our own Nylon Coffee Roasters which are brighter and fruity-ish). It is robust with low acidity, smooth on the palate. I also got a sea-salt brownie on the side, the flavor is not so strong therefore allowing the coffee to stand out (they are a 'coffee stand' anyway!)

One of my favorite cold brews and it is made to order (not pre-bottled)! So can BYO next time. The milk can also be customised. I personally find it a bit different than their in-house espresso-based drink, the cold brew is bolder and more chocolate-y (which I love).

Nylon needs no introduction. Its quality of roasts is so top notch. The notes of their espresso blend is not what I would typically go for but Nylon does their coffee really well that it is much better, with clean aftertaste and lower acidity that keeps me coming back for more.

This hand brew [$6.5] offers a smooth, not very strong coffee with dried fruits and milk chocolate notes. A nice cuppa for those who are into specialty coffee but also needs something relaxing to work with or catch up with friends in their minimalist bright space.

Great chai lattes are hard to find - so far my experience revolved around too much or too little spices. Their Dirty Chai is really balanced - the spices came through and complemented the base really well. I'll come back for this, as well as their bakes.

If you're here for the croissant, be prepared to come early as they sell out very quickly. I came here at around lunch time and was left with one fudge brownie (so fudgy, rich and solid - but I don't have its photo), milk toast, and a couple of other pastries and bakes. I got the iced latte as well - so smooth, not bitter, had more milk than coffee for my liking but still enjoyable nonetheless. The staff were attentive, patient and friendly. They gave great advice on the items too!

Aesthetically pleasing space with nice coffee and airy ambience. Great for takeaways given the proximity to shops, museums and open spaces, but when it is not crowded it is a great hangout space too!
