Single espresso with steamed milk - you can pick how strong you’d like your coffee to be by varying the amount of steamed milk: intense (80ml), strong (130ml), or milky (165ml). The more steamed milk there is in the drink, the more expensive it is. :P

The strong white had a nice balance of espresso and milk - great if you want some milk in your coffee but don’t want the taste of espresso to be compromised. It was very fragrant.

We visited the cafe at about 1pm on a Sunday and it was quite packed! Do come early to avoid long waiting times. The dining time here is an hour long, which was slightly short but understandable - there was a long line waiting outside when we left.

A fully washed Ethiopian blend, this cup comes with notes of jasmine, honey, black tea, as well as hints of passionfruit. It has a very soft, creamy mouthfeel, and an accompanied acidity which enveloped our happy tastebuds.

This comes with a small teacup of cold sencha so that you can wash your palate before tasting the coffee. Was a pretty good coffee tasting experience.

To be really blunt, this 99% tastes like I’m eating Lao Ban Soya beancurd from a straw in a fancy bottle - I wouldn’t even be surprised if they got their soy pudding from there. Taste of purple potato was very very subtle. Definitely not worth the $8, I could’ve just bought a bowl of laoban.

Would highly recommend you try their other drinks or flavours which look a little more promising.

We visited the cafe on a Monday afternoon and it was about half to three quarters filled up.

Didn’t really expect such great coffee at a bakery - it was a pleasant surprise. It was a solid cup of coffee that went well with our pastries, very fragrant and smooth.

We visited on a Sunday afternoon, around 12.30pm, and managed to get seats for two easily. The interior was sleek and clean, high ceilings made the place look very spacious. Staff were friendly - very enthusiastic to welcome you into their cafe and help you.

Overall a pleasant experience.

The cold brew white was very smooth and not too overwhelmingly sweet or milky. It was perfect on the rocks. I liked the tinge of vanilla.

Overall a great accompaniment to our savoury brunch dishes.

This was a pretty good cup of earl grey latte! It was very fragrant. A pity that they don’t have normal pearls here - they only have brown sugar pearls, so my latte sort of became an “earl grey brown sugar latte” of some sort, which honestly was really yummy.

Would recommend getting a lower sugar level if you’re picking the pearls, since they come with brown sugar.

We visited on a Sunday evening and there wasn’t a queue, which was nice. Service was good, the man at the counter was very friendly.

Trying out their new flavor - osmanthus fans rejoice! The latte was pretty good, the osmanthus smell was very fragrant. I liked the jelly! We got the drink at 0% sugar which was just nice because the jelly is a little bit sweet.

We visited on Day 2 of CNY and there was a bit of a queue, we had to wait for about 15min to get our drink. On CNY they only sell large sized cups. It’s 10% off for healthcare staff btw! :)

Essentially coffee with palm sugar - this satisfied my sweet tooth! The coffee was quite fragrant, worth a try if you like sweeter and smoother types of coffees. Palm sugar added a really happy flavour to the coffee.

Oh, and I really liked that over here, you didn’t have to pay more for an iced drink. Hot and iced drinks are priced the same!

You wouldn’t miss this shop’s eye-catching bright yellow interior design. It’s at the corner of Oxley Tower, on the side facing Telok Ayer. I visited on a weekday afternoon and it was busy, I had to wait a total of about 20+ minutes to queue, order, and collect my drink.

The golden turmeric latte was refreshing, was a perfect afternoon pick me up. There was quite a bit of ice in it so it became rather diluted towards the end - would recommend to drink it quickly or perhaps request for less ice.

A rare, single origin oolong from an 80-year old tree from Guangdong - this Phoenix Dancong Oolong was quite strong, but had very subtle floral notes (which my unrefined tastebuds struggled to capture). It gets its name due to its origin - Phoenix mountain, and Dancong (单丛) because every single shrub is harvested and processed individually. We appreciated the work put into the tea as we sipped and enjoyed it.

Antea Social offers you a unique tea drinking experience. You get to pick from a plethora of tea choices, and then you get to pick your tea cup as well! The tea is served in a teapot on a tray, where an actual hourglass would let you know when to pour the tea out. You can then request for refills after.

We visited this chic looking cafe on a Sunday afternoon at about 1pm - it was quiet, got busier and filled up at around 3pm. Decor is pretty and sleek, I liked the high ceilings. It’s a great place to just sit down and chill with friends. Perfect for a peaceful getaway if you’re going earlier / during non-peak periods.

The Golden Pomelo Oolong was very fragrant - we enjoyed the citrusy aromas from the pomelo accompanying the lighter oolong. A good pick if you want something light and refreshing.

Went at around 9.15pm and they were out of pearls! :( Wasn’t really expecting pearls in a bubble tea shop to be out so early, but I sucked it up (ha) and got the konjac jelly instead, which is yummy too - quite sweet on its own so I would keep that in mind in the future when picking the sugar levels of the drink.

Being a big fan of vanilla, I had to try the vanilla milk tea. It tasted like the typical milk tea but with a subtle essence of vanilla. I do wish that the vanilla taste could be slightly stronger but the light vanilla accent of the drink was a great touch as well. I got it at 25% sugar level, which just nice for me because the konjac jellies were quite sweet too.
