YY Kafei Dian
You’ll find our favorite local coffee shop, YY Kafei Dian, two blocks away from the famous Raffles Hotel where the Singapore Sling was invented. They serve things like kaya toast, a white bread bun loaded with coconut jam and butter that’s part-sandwich, part-dessert, and claypot noodles loaded with pork, Chinese cabbage, and egg. This small spot on Beach Road makes their kaya and buns in-house before toasting them on a griddle that’s been around forever. Grab a bun and a coffee, then stroll over to the Raffles Hotel to explore the grounds.
