How do you take your coffee — black or white, hand poured or cold brew, or paired with a sweet treat or savoury brunch? Whether you prefer to enjoy your coffee in good company or to have it keep you company while you work, the best cup is the one that’s made just how you like it, and savoured in the right space. Come take your pick from our tour of cafes in the neighbourhood and find the right spot for your morning pick-me-up, lunch date, afternoon tea and more.
Take a seat in the middle of our Shopping Galleria and soak in the neighbourhood atmosphere from Patisserie G’s elegant space. Specialising in artisanal French pastry techniques, Patisserie G is best known for pastries and cakes that don't just look too good to eat, but taste even better than they look. Stop by for classic French treats like macarons and canelés — a rarer find in Singapore — paired with hot or cold brews from local specialty coffee roastery Liberty Coffee. Don’t forget to look up and admire Millenia Walk’s colourful pitched roof while you’re at it!
Here’s where you’ll find one of the best views of our neighbourhood. At Commune Café, the seating area is perched on the two bridges on our second floor, giving you a birds-eye vantage point of our indoor streetscape, as well as a little more privacy or quiet should you seek it. Alongside their brews, they serve primarily sweeter treats, including cakes and tarts. This café is part of Commune Lifestyle’s expansive space in Millenia Walk, so treat yourself to a show of great furniture and design right next door once you’re done enjoying your food or drink.
The Coffee Academïcs
Feeling adventurous? Try something different from your go-to at The Coffee Academïcs — perhaps a refreshing espresso soda, or a sugared latte flavoured with unique natural sugars like Okinawan brown sugar or gula jawa. With a passion for coffee education and coffee culture in Asia, The Coffee Academïcs has an impressive line-up of coffees and specialty blends on the menu. Add a wide selection of savoury fare and decadent desserts, and their warm and cosy, yet airy, space may become one of your next favourite gathering spots.
When it’s fresh air we need, we head straight to Huggs Coffee for coffee and fresh bakes, and claim an outdoor seat to enjoy our drinks alfresco. If you prefer to be indoors, their spacious interior at Millenia Walk is drenched in natural light and no less of a spot to enjoy the outdoor atmosphere of our neighbourhood. Plus, Huggs Coffee’s international range of coffees and teas is always welcome, especially for the times where all we want is a good old cup of local kopi.
Joe & Dough
The clue is in the name: Joe & Dough takes as much pride in their coffee as they do their handcrafted bakes. Alongside a house specialty coffee blend that they roast locally themselves, their fresh artisan bakes are the star of their menu. Pay a visit to their bright, cosy space at Millenia Walk for hearty, comforting meals. You can expect not only sweet pastries and cakes, but also fresh bread in their gourmet sandwiches or featuring in dishes like fry-ups and their well-loved shakshuka.
Whichever way you like your coffee, find your perfect brew and let the conversations flow at the cafés in our neighbourhood. We have something exciting planned for the coffee lovers in our community as well — from 21 to 30 April 2023, catch up over fresh coffee through pop-up markets, workshops, talks and more. Best of all, get the chance to bring home exclusive merch designed by our artist-in-residence, Oak & Bindi, and catch the artist in action as they paint a mural live at The Great Hall.
