CSH, 40 Hands/Common Man, and Penny Uni (East Coast) are some of the tops.

I would say they are conservative because that's the "order" from the older generations. Unless there's a lobang (hole, literally) inside the "order" :P

There are several websites which provide a good place to have a nice cup of coffee. Although the choices may be "too hipster" (for some people), I'll just drop by and drink it.
