Casual Cafes wtih Wireless Internet

Post by spidernyc » Sat, 08 Jul 2006 12:38 pm

Hi all,

Are there are cafes in Singapore where you can lounge out for a while on your laptop with wireless internet? No pressure from the staff to turnover tables. Preferrably with good coffee and free internet.

I haven't found one in Singapore yet.

Thanks! Felix

Haven't found any either -- free wireless Internet in Singapore seems to be an exceedingly rare commodity. :cry: The Delifrance at Funan IT is the closest I know of to fulfilling your criteria, but they don't have any power outlets.

Haven't tried it yet but I saw an Internet Cafe Bar at the Singapore Cruise Centre (SCC) @ HarbourFront when I was passing by last weekend.

so does Starbucks

it's an unfortunate practice here that places like The Marriot Crossroads bar/resturant insist on charging its customers something like $20 just to use their wifi - I know I'd go there more often if it were free

try the prickly bush bistro located at dunlop street (lil india). they allow you to log into their network for free. just bring your own notebook. you can sit on the roof garden or at the bar area..
