Been here a few times and the coffee here is pretty good. They serve their own house blend and brew of the week which is sourced from different origins. It's a pity that they don't serve any food other than cakes and muffins. They have fruit juices too. Overall, it's a nice cafe.

Just passed by and would like a coffee in the afternoon. Ordered a piccolo latte, just lukewarm and it came perfectly with a small tulip. The coffee tasted nutty, rich and smooth, it had saved from my sleepy afternoon in Singapore's hot and humid weather, thanks!

Finally had the opportunity to drop in for a coffee at CAD. Very glad I did. Top notch Flat White ($5) in the heart of Kampong Glam.

Tucked in a fabulous side street of eclectic shops, this delightful coffee gem is superbly located on a corner overlooking a hive of activity. The coffee is very good and the service excellent, such a great place to sit and relax while watching the world go by. A must for coffee lovers

We spent a very pleasant morning wandering the length of Haji Lane. We stopped at CAD Cafe for coffees and pastries and were pleased that we did. Breakfast selection was a bit limited (as it seemed to be generally in the area) so maybe an opportunity for CAD Cafe (if not one of the coffee shops in the area) to... More

We went to this place for Flat White this afternoon. Our coffees smelt burnt, too bitter plus strong sour taste. My hubby sipped once and left it there which I struggle to finish both cups as we already paid for it. Don't want to waste the $. The aftertaste wasn't pleasant at all. We would definitely not return. Even though... More

Stopped in here for a morning coffee break while exploring the awesome area surrounding Haji Lane. The barrista was a really cool dude, made a wicked cup of coffee (I had a latte and my partner had a cappuccino) and although a small space, was a really great cafe. We were here during Chinese NY so probably lucky it was... More

Came here twice while wandering the Arab area. Nice set up, professional barista and awesome espresso. The woolloomooloo blend was excellent, with caramel aftertaste, and a nice change from the fruity aftertaste that currently seems to be the rage in espresso at the moment (though that choice is available for you also :)) Specialty beers and ciders also available along...

Staying in Kampong Glam

Neighbourhood Profile
Kampong Glam
This traditionally Malay enclave of Singapore offers an alluring array of shops, cafes, and bars. A walk down Haji Lane offers quirky shopping, while one block over, Arab Street is a treasure trove of brightly coloured fabrics, clothing, and Turkish rugs. Stop for a leisurely coffee or cocktail and watch local kids play traditional games along the lane. Also home to the Malay Heritage Centre and one of Singapore’s most prominent mosques (Sultan Mosque), Kampong Glam is a must-visit for a tantalizing taste of Malay life in this city.
