Ordered a Flat White ($5.50 nett small, $6.50 nett large) to go with my brunch; got the large one at a promotional price of $6.00 nett.

Pleasantly surprised at how easy this is to drink, yet has that oomph of a double shot of coffee to kick you awake. Would return here again for the coffee, to just spend time chillin' here.

I will be back to Boyle’s Coffee & Love Bites next time to chill a little longer! I can forsee this as a comfortable place to relax your weekend away, or be productive while doing work.

Being located in town, it is pretty central as well. It's actually on the SMU campus - you lucky bastards. Maybe I should go back to school & get another degree πŸ˜‚

Was here in between appointments - have never been. Enjoyed my flat white double shot ($5.50 nett) as much as the ambience here - kind of wished I could stay longer.

The coffee was good & smooth. The beans weren't too acidic, & the amount & quality of milk wasn't too creamy. Just right for me.

Yesterday was International Coffee Day - I found this out only when the day was almost over! But perhaps it's this special day that gave me the good luck I needed to uncover a great coffee stall in a hawker centre.

My dad regularly orders coffee from Hylam Street Old Coffee 桷南著老咖啑, after a friend introduced it to him & he got hooked. He then did the same to me, & now I'm hooked too.

We're always here during off-peak hour (past 2pm on a weekday), so the queue is minimal if even there at all. During crowded times, the queues can get pretty snaking long, I've heard!

This is clearly for good reason. The amazing fragrance of roasted beans, superb taste, & affordability. When I walked forward to place my order, I could smell the beans immediately. That made me change my order of tea to a coffee before I blurted it out to the uncle.

In terms of taste, I really can't ask for more. It has the socksy kopitiam taste that you want in a cup of hawker centre coffee. It'll definitely give you that kick awake that you need in the morning/mid-day.

& the price? $2 total for this kopi & kopi C kosong. Who needs volume when you've got quality; want more, just buy 2 cups lor. Still cheaper than Starbucks.

Happy belated International Coffee Day!

Haven't been to Old Hen in a hot minute - glad to know that their cold brew is still delicious & refreshing in the sweltering heat. Depending on my mood for the day, I'll choose either the Smooth Black ($6.00 nett) or Creamy White ($6.50 nett) Cold Brew. I was feeling the white that day; it went down so smooth, it made me happy.

Ps: That's the Specialty Coffee - White (Hot, $4.50 nett) in the foreground. I didn't try it, but I might the next time ☺

I enjoy a solid cup of coffee - by that, I mean very strong flavours, sometimes without milk, but most of the time with. Having said that, I'm not a coffee connoisseur, so I will refrain from trying to describe coffee using words that aren't in my dictionary.

I can, however, describe the Gibraltar ($4.50) we ordered - it has less milk than your regular latte, which is totally up my alley. I did enjoy my cuppa here as much as I did the friendly service. Keep it up guys! They have a few drip coffee options as well which I am keen to try next time.

Also worthy to note: You have to place your order at the cashier before you get seated. Lessens the chances of people fighting over a choped table, I suppose = πŸ‘

The Latte ($4.50) was sufficiently creamy, yet had the super shiok kick of robust coffee inside. If aesthetics are your thing, you can see the difference in the latte art of the Soy Milk (+$0.50) Latte.. Probably because Soy Milk behaves in a different way, but it didn't really bother me.

Having a different kind of coffee - the signature Pepper Agave Latte ($7.50++). Upon first sip, it doesn't seem too sweet - in fact, the pepper really gives you quite a kick, & overall it's a pleasant drink that glides down your throat.

But after sipping on the regular flat white (comes with 2 shots of espresso), I then realized how sweet the Agave makes this drink. Still finished it all, though.

The coffee options here are plentiful & seem good. Eatigo discounts aren't valid for drinks - but the drinks are value for money on their own. (Can't say the same for the food, though.) Will be back for the drinks.

The coffee taste in the Rose Gold Latte ($5.50++ hot or $6.50++ iced) was very mild, & there was a slight sweetness that was pleasant but which honestly rather do without. I think for my next coffee here, I'll just get the regular latte; it's $0.50 cheaper, anyway.

Not particularly memorable coffee, but fairly decent & not too acidic. On the milky side.

Nespresso Capsules come in sleeves - each sleeve is a bundle of 10. The flavours come with different intensities - the higher the intensity number, the longer the beans have been roasted for.

Picked up a Ristretto (intensity 10) for a friend & wanted to buy some of my own. Tried the Roma (intensity 8) & Volutto (intensity 4), both of which I liked but preferred the Roma as it is more robust. Might get the Volutto next time for afternoon coffee, it has a biscuit/cereal aftertaste & is more acidic.

Prices per sleeve for the 3 I mentioned above are $6.80 each. Other varieties range from this price to $7-8ish.

It's my first time at a Nespresso store where I get to linger & browse. Previous times, I'm always rushing off somewhere for appointments when I drop by the stores/booths. I must say I am as impressed by the tasting station as I am with the impeccable service & friendly smiles of the staff here.

I also picked up some recycling bags because I want to try to do some recycling in my office, since I literally am sitting next to the machine all day. Wish me luck!

I went to a hospital to drink coffee πŸ˜‚ Ng Teng Fong hospital - yes, the fancy hospital that looks like a condominium from the outside.

Was surprised to find their shop space is not like your typical cafΓ© where you can sit down & have a cuppa. If you really want to sit, there's the common area right outside the shop - there are, like, 5 benches to sit at (+2 standing tables). Not a lot of space alright, so that's depending on availability.

I like how there are inspirational/motivational quotes on the cup covers. These can come off as pretentious, but the friendliness & warmth of the nice lady taking my order made it seem more genuine πŸ˜‰ & it also happens to be a timely reminder to myself at this point in my life.

Coffee-wise: Smallest cup ("standard")= single shot, medium cup ("regular") = double shot. In the picture you'll see my Standard Latte ($4.90) & Regular Cappuccino ($5.60). They didn't have the boldness & strength of the coffee that I am used to, but t'was still a pleasant cup of coffee at a reasonable price. Also their cakes look quite amazing & they have cake sets (a slice of cake + latte/cappuccino from $8.50 onwards) which I would very much like to try the next time.
