Luckily, there are plenty of cafes in Singapore that have these and more.

So why limit yourself to your friendly neighbourhood Starbucks? Pack your laptops, books, and other work/study essentials and get down to business at these excellent cafes located in different areas in the Little Red Dot.

5. Commune Cafe

Millenia Walk is one of Central Singapore’s quieter malls, given the office lunch crowd’s absence. This makes Commune Cafe an excellent place for those who prefer a more peaceful atmosphere for working and studying. Located on the second floor, Commune Cafe is an offshoot of a furniture store, contributing to its sophisticated but relaxed vibe. Their alfresco-style seating is great for those who want to work surrounded by fresher air.

Great coffee is a given here because Commune Cafe uses beans from Common Man Coffee Roasters. Sip one of their aromatic brews for just SGD 3.50 and sample their generous dessert offerings, such as their chocolate tarts (SGD 4) and chocolate banana waffles topped with ice cream (SGD 8.50).
