Doutor Coffee is an European styled café chain in Japan with its own coffee plantation in Kona Island, Hawaii. We first came across Doutor Coffee on a cold winter morning in Japan. The warmly lit cafe with a modern neat decor and a big sign in English which said “Finest Quality Gourmet Coffee” was such a welcome sight on that cold wet morning. The simple breakfast with hot coffee we had there was a memorable one. We were happy when Doutor Coffee Singapore opened an outlet in Marina Financial Centre, as we had fond memories of the cafe in Japan which provided us good hot coffee on a very cold day.
Doutor Coffee Singapore is at the road level of Marina Bay Financial Centre Tower 3. It looks like a typical Doutor Coffee outlet in Japan – a simple modern self service cafe with a distinctively Japanese look and feel.
Founded in Tokyo’s famous district Harajuku, Doutor started out as a coffee beans wholesaler. Although it is first and foremost a coffee company, Doutor Coffee cafe’s menu is quite extensive. Besides cakes and pastries, pancakes, sandwiches, hotdogs, eggs and salads are available. In Singapore, Doutor even offers Kaya Toasts. Its Mille crepe is a popular item.
We see that they have introduced Eggslut in their menu. That is something we like to try on our next visit.
We just had lunch when we passed by Doutor Coffee Singapore and went in for coffee ($3.50 for a cup of freshly brewed coffee). The Chocolate Fondant with Ice Cream was only $4; so we ordered that as well.
The coffee was good with a nice aroma and balanced taste – acidic but not overpowering. It would be a good coffee in the morning to get the day going.
The Chocolate Fondant was nicely plated and surprisingly good too. The edges were firm and the inside was soft with a gooey center. We thought it was a fine tasting good quality low priced dessert.
Doutor Coffee Singapore remains one of our favourite cafes when we want a pleasant space to sit and relax in the Marina Bay area. They serve good Japanese coffee and it is a real bonus that their sandwiches and desserts are quite good too.
