There are so many new eating and drinking places in Singapore. We have made a list of our favourite new restaurants in Singapore for 2015. We thought we should have a separate list for new cafes in Singapore we like. There is of course no clear demarcation between a restaurant and a cafe nowadays. You can get a complete meal in many cafes. After all, by modern definition a cafe is simply a restaurant serving coffee and other beverages along with baked goods or light meals. We think of cafes as places where we can just relax and have desserts and a good cup of coffee or tea. Here are The Ordinary Patrons favourite newcomers – TOP New Cafes in Singapore 2015.
5 Little Monkeys Cafe
20 Kallang Avenue
#11-00 Pico Creative Centre
Nestled on the 11th Floor of Pico Creative Centre with a great panoramic view, lies the charming 5 Little Monkeys Cafe. It is truly a hidden gem – spacious and so easy to feel relaxed and comfortable there. Good Peranakan food served there is a real bonus.
Bakehouse by Carpenter and Cook
#01-14 Alexandra Central

Dazzling Cafe Singapore 蜜糖吐司專賣店
15 Stamford Road
If there is a chart to show the measurement of camera clicks per unit area, the Singapore outlet of the popular Taiwanese dessert chain must surely be very near the top of the chart. With its interior and food plating designed for the camera, Dazzling Cafe is a pretty face with good interesting desserts too.

FLOCK Cafe is an oasis of calm, and a very welcomed hip cafe in the Ghim Moh neighbourhood.

Hashida Garo is quite unlike any other Japanese eatery in Singapore. The description on its website, “a place where desserts meet art”, lets you know what to expect. The Hokkaido cheese cake is very good.
Karafuru Desserts (Closed)
8 Jalan Klapa
The desserts at Karafuru Desserts cafe will rival those of Dazzling Cafe as the most photographed desserts in Singapore in 2015. It is a place where you first eat with your eyes and surely one of the best new cafes in Singapore.

Tarte by Cheryl Koh
1 Scotts Road,
#01-12 Shaw Centre
It is not really a cafe but the tarts and carolines at Tarte by Cheryl Koh are really beautiful and delicious. The delightful little treats can be enjoyed with coffee at the adjoining Caveau Bar.

This is a charming new cafe in the Biopolis area in Buona Vista. The main attractions at Tete-a-Tete cafe are their desserts and their coffee is very good.
