Also do really good sandwiches for those times you dont feel like rice or noodles for lunch.

Oriole - Somerset

Unfortunately they open too late to get coffee before work!

Kith - Robertson Quay

Lets keep the list going...

P.S. Looking to buy an espresso machine for home. Anyone know where to go in Singapore for this?

I tried Kopi Lewak in Australia, it is without a doubt the nicest coffee i have had, I would call myself a bit of a coffee snob too hence why looking at this post !

I have tried Black Coffee at 111 Somerset. Not bad but the service wasn't great.
I also happen to like Yakun kaya toast shop's coffee a lot :)

I just got back from a delightful new coffee shop in my neighbourhood called 93 degrees at 16 Morse rd near telok blangah/keppel hill area. They have a selection of about ten beans to choose from, all roasted on the premises. They have a few pastries and sandwiches, nothing fancy but all very tasty. I had a cup of Brazilian Santos and my husband had a very robust Indonesian coffee but I forget the estate name. Both were brewed perfectly. The ham sandwich we shared was delicious! All at similar prices to sbux/coffee bean. Definitely my new haunt :-)

Tobby's estate has just opened up on the riverfront at robertson quay, they roast their own beans on site, and it feels like ur back in Aus, the coffee is pretty decent, though my second of the morning was a tad cold...none the less, once they iron out the kinks, it will definitely be a stayer on the scene.

Jones the grocer and Boomerang bar also produce decent coffee....but as above can be hit and miss...after all it doesn't matter what ingrediants you have if the barista doesn't know what they are doing

Just went to Brunetti at Tanglin Mall. Hmmm... love their coffee and pastries! Too bad it's always crowded whenever I go. It's not easy to get a seat there.

Jewel coffee is right under my building, and it's brilliant. The guys there really care about their beans etc and it shows in the taste.

FWIW I believe the reason Civet coffee is supposedly better is because the Civet cat chooses the ripest beans. Although quite how ripe they are after making their way through the intestines is up for debate. My 2c...
