Ordered a mocha, coconut watermelon lime slushie and seasalt brownie and they are all good! Not a fan of brownie but this is really good!

Love the quiet vibe, nice music and simple deco!

Only minus point is that as the cafe is small, small groups of max.4 are recommended.

Tucked away within Bras Basah Complex, Narrative is a quaint establishment with limited seating. Serving El Salvador beans from Nylon Coffee Roasters for their espresso range, the white ($4.50) was smooth and lightly acidic with hints of nuttiness. Greatly enjoyed the depth of flavour! My only gripe is that the serving is a little small and got cold quickly.

Came for coffee but surprisingly fell in love with their hot chocolate. Just a little Himalayas Pink Salt adds a lot of interesting flavour!

tried 1x white and 1x white w/ oat (+$0.50)!!
the normal white was more bitter, but the white w/ oat was not bad too. might taste weird initially (a blend of sweet & sour & bitter??) but can be quite addictive heh, oat taste is quite strong. actually enjoyed it
cup wasnt very big but ok nubbad experience :-)
good & prompt service

*fun fact: the white w/ oat doesnt stain the cup like normal coffee does :~D

"Hidden gem" gets thrown around a lot but I truly believe this place deserves more attention, especially with their very impressive metamorphosis since rebranding from Dancing Goat .
Their strength is in great knowledge and taste, which allowed for a finely curated selection. They carry a unique Danish-roasted filter coffee, are one of the few places carrying Nylon roasted beans, and also carry matcha from Kurasu and tea from Antea Social โ€” all places I love. Not to mention knowledgeable and friendly baristas!
I had a ๐—ช๐—ต๐—ถ๐˜๐—ฒ ($4.50/$5.50 for iced; with #burpplebeyond 1-for-1 available) using an El Salvador espresso roasted by Nylon. Very fragrant, with an underlying nutty profile tinged with chocolate notes, which still managed to find a good amount of balance. Good dose of milkiness that doesn't overwhelm the coffee, while imparting a velvety mouthfeel.

#BuppleBeyond 1-1

Ice White $5.50

A very chic and cozy joint for coffee, love the minimalist interior deisgn. Staffs were all very friendly. Went at around 145pm on a Sunday noon was quite empty initially but got really crowded after 30 mins. Guess it's quite popular. But it wasnt hard to find the reason why as the coffee was really good. No joke when I saw reviews mentioning their coffee was really strong, cause I felt the kick of the caffeine on the first sip but it was aromatic and smooth. They served us water beside the coffee we ordered too. Really a good deal with Beyond, such a nice place to chill with good coffee. Will definitely pay them a few more visits!
