From the Burpple community

This hidden gem located in a cosy little corner of Bras Basah Complex is home to solid coffees and a minimalistic space perfect for whiling lazy afternoons away at. Burppler Edith Loo's claims that this joint serves up ""one of the best"" Iced Lattes ($4.50), with a perfect balance between strength and flavour. Also delicious is the Filter Coffee ($6) – well-bodied whilst sporting a fruity and nuanced flavour.

Located in a cosy little corner of Bras Basah Complex, hidden among a row of bookstores, Narrative serves up a number of cakes and specialty coffee. I came to check out their filter coffee ($6) before an appointment.

During my visit, the filter coffees on rotation were sourced from scandinavian roasters, with a roast coming from the renowned Coffee Collective of Denmark and two roasts from Koppi roasters of Sweden. I opted for the Kenyan Single Origin from roasted by Koppi, which was brewed with finesse by the barista (whose name I didn’t manage to catch) and delivered a full mouthfeel with flavour notes of plums and raisins.

What’s worthy of noting is that the brewers at Narrative use the Clever coffee dripper, allowing them to switch between immersion and drip brewing. This makes the coffee more complex and layered, developing a body while retaining the fruity, nuanced flavours.

The service was great, and the ambience of the place was nice and minimalist. You could see the love the brewers have for the coffee as you watch them brew your coffee. Their precision and attention to detail about the time of extraction reflects the amount of TLC they put into each cup, and I highly recommend paying them a visit. I’ll be back soon to try out other coffees and their cakes!

This coffee place is cosy and filled with coffee fragrance. Definitely a great place to order a cup of coffee and relax during the weekend.

A good cup of coffee is hard to make. Their coffee is aromatic. Latte (4.50), Iced cino (5.50) and Earl grey tea cake (3.00). Cosy cafe and limited seats inside. Most people ordered takeaway.

I’ve been to Narrative three times (twice before it was repackaged from Dancing Goat to Narrative Coffee Stand). This is one of the best iced whites in Singapore in my opinion, in terms of strength and flavour. I love my coffees strong and rich, and this certainly delivers. Great minimalistic space for chilling over a cuppa with friends or your loved ones! Service is great and attentive as well.

From Narrative Coffee Stand, a new cafe that replaces now-defunct Dancing Goat Specialty Coffee at Bras Basah Complex.

Serving up only specialty coffee and bakes that are prepared fresh daily in-house, the Banana Bread with Chocolate is absolutely comforting without a doubt — a great option to go for if one is looking for something not too heavy, yet sweet to pair up with their morning cuppa. Heated up upon order, the Banana Bread with Chocolate comes perfuming of the sweetness of the fruit, whilst being adequately dense yet fluffy — the chocolate being somewhat melted and provides a hint of sweetness that creates a flavoural contrast with the bread. Coffee is pretty good too; a great place to chill out for a lazy morning whilst running errands in town.
