1) Hub & Spoke Cafe

Don’t be fooled by the address. It’s not located inside Changi Airport.

Instead, it'll be located beside Terminal 2 along the picturesque Changi Airport Connector, among lush vegetation.

It’s a breath of fresh air compared to the concrete structures.

With floor-to-ceiling windows, the cafe is bathed in natural light.

Key Differentiators

  • It’s a breath of fresh air compared to the concrete structures.

Client Testimonial

The food here is pretty good and reasonably priced given the location. Portion is also generous to make your money well spent. There are plenty of parking space nearby which is a plus point. I would definitely be back to try other food.

Get away from the busyness of the city and head to Riders Cafe.

It's the greatest thing you can do if you're looking for a short country-style vacation in our view.

Tucked away in the lush greenery of Bukit Timah Saddle Club (yes, there are adorable horses all around), this peaceful spot is idyllic for any meal of the day.

This swanky restaurant by the team behind Lucali BYGB is a hidden gem, to say the least.

In the Gemmil Lane alley, look for the entrance (which is used by Proper Slice).

Step inside to find a dining space featuring hand-stitched antique rugs, high-gloss burlwood tables, contemporary art pieces, and neon-lit wine coolers (the highlight).

This cafe takes things up a notch – it’s hidden on the rooftop of an unassuming industrial building in Hillview.

The location stands out for its beauty, in addition to providing magnificent views of the area.

Think symmetrical sections split into two polarising colors: red and white.

On the menu, you’ve got hearty breakfast plates and locally-inspired dishes like rendang wagyu beef burger and sambal fish and chips.

Escape the hustle and bustle of city life and make your way to the Kranji farm countryside.

Essentially a getaway villa of colonial houses, Gardenasia also houses a bistro.

Offering a unique farm-to-table dining experience (ingredients are sourced from nearby farms), the menu features dishes like assam fish chowder, pan-seared red snapper fillet, grilled rosemary chicken, and more.

For a full-on holiday, we recommend a staycation so you can soak in the rustic landscape.

Masked in an unassuming location on the eighth floor of a medical center in Novena, this kitsch cafe is a treasure.

With its cozy atmosphere and wooden interiors, it just makes you want to huddle up in one of the nooks with a hot cuppa and a good novel.

Be sure to try the French toast and crab cakes!

If you’re hanging out on Amoy Street and you find yourself craving a divine burger, head to the back alley of Gemmill Lane where you’ll stumble upon a neon-lit burger sign.

Go through the door and velvet curtains and follow the aroma of grilled meats and deep-fried chips.

It’s all about simplicity here.

Choose how you want your burger done, add your toppings (iceberg lettuce, tomato, or onion) and pick your sauce.

Key Differentiators

  • Go through the door and velvet curtains and follow the aroma of grilled meats and deep-fried chips.

8) Kabuke

Despite being located in the bustling ‘hood of Telok Year, Kabuke manages to stay under the radar.

Hidden on the second floor of a heritage shophouse, the gastrobar invites you for an evening of good food and sake amidst a cozy ambiance.

The bar bites include things like a cheeseburger, chicken wings, and garlic bread. The A4 Kagoshima wagyu striploin is the star of the show in terms of cuisine.

Wash it all down with a selection of sake: glass, carafe, or bottle.
