4. For Indian Filter Coffee - Komala Vilas

Address
76 Serangoon Road, Singapore 217981

7am to 10.30pm (Daily)

Another indian establishment worth popping by for a bite and a sip is Komala Vilas, a household name in the country that first opened back in 1947. Have your pick of a delectable variety of both south indian and north indian dishes. Our recommendation is a plate of dosa (a thin, crispy type of pancake) with some of the best Indian filter coffee the neighbourhood has to offer.

5. For Japanese-French Vibes - L’Etoile Café

Address
160 Owen Road, Singapore 218953

Hankering for more European flavours? You want L’Etoile Café. Quaint, laidback, and ever so off-the-beaten-path, the fusion café upon entering feels like you’ve just stepped into someone’s home. Expect its artisanal coffee to impress at an eatery that roasts its coffee beans and carefully slow drips its coffee for at least 20 hours.
