Chye Seng Huat Hardware Coffee Bar review image

Chye Seng Huat Hardware Coffee Bar


150 Tyrwhitt Rd, Singapore
View WebsiteEarn 3X Points

Built in a former hardware store, Chye Seng Huat is next to a church and a Buddhist monastery, and down the street from several Hindu temples. It’s probably just a coincidence but we like to think that the coffee at this Kallang cafe is part of the reason everyone gets along. You’ll see pancakes or the sticky fig pudding on most tables - and they should be on yours too - but their wagyu beef burger is highly underrated. Check out the coffee lab in the back, then sit in the courtyard and think up your best “a priest, a monk, and a pujari walk into a coffee shop” joke.
