From the Burpple community

For a local option in the hipster Tiong Bahru area, Sam Yat Coffee offers local favourites like kaya toast sets, curry chicken, traditional kopi / teh, but also modern likes such as bingsu, lemongrass tea, etc.

Coffee is freshly brewed, and their kopi o kosong had a nice bitter taste. Most of all, it's a great place to escape the heat (it's air-conditioned)!

It’s true! You can order your favourite dim sum from Tiong Bahru Pau next door, tell them you’re going to eat here and you’ll be given necessary utensils to bring here to eat! Wonderful! Air conditioning and comfortable seats plus you can have kaya toast with soft boiled eggs too. 👏👏👏


Well done soft boiled eggs and well toasted bread with kaya butter. Eggs medium sized they filled up well for a fulfilling breakfast. Toasts are slightly crispy on the outside with tasty kaya that's not too sweet. Overall it's a yummy yummy yum yum. TIP - this place is operated by Tiong Bahru Pau which is just a shop away next door. My next trip here will be to get my favourite dim sum from next door and have my fill of Tiong Bahru pau and lor mee ji. This is much better than the market! Shhh.. don't tell the others. 😂


We stopped in for a mid morning snack of kaya/butter and honey/fruit French toast AND milo dinosaurs. All of this total was $13.90! The French toast is fluffy and the kaya is flavorful! I will definitely be coming back for more local favorites!


Essentially ice kachang and kaya toast's love child from a risqué night of post-pasar malam passion. Random surprise lumps of thick kaya play peekaboo from within a mountain of syrup-less ice kachang covered entirely with crusty Julie's Butter Crackers. 3.1/5


Sam Yat Coffee is the newest concept of Tiong Bahru Pau at 241 Outram Road, doors away from the Tiong Bahru Pau branch at 237 Outram Road. Apart from their Pau offerings, there are also economic bee hoon, Mee Rebus, Curry Chicken, Chee Cheong Fun etc on the menu, and dessert lovers would definitely find their Bingsu affordable given they all costs only $6. Also available ala-carte, the set comes with the usual suspects of soft-boiled egg and a drink. I like the fact that they have used white bread here for the toast instead, but the toasting felt a little overboard with too much charred bits on the bread which made it feel a little unpleasant — the portioning is butter and Kaya was decent enough though given they are cut into tiny strips half the size of the entire loaf. Soft-boiled eggs were a little overdone for I would have preferred a more runny egg than clumps of solid egg white. Kopi was not too bad, but it's the sort that's a wee bit watered down and could have been better if it was more aromatic.
