Once Upon a Time We Had Black Fairy Coffee


There is a Black Fairy in Tyrwhitt Road, Singapore. It is not Fiona, the Black Fairy from the fantasy drama series Once Upon a Time, but an all day dining cafe named Black Fairy Coffee.

Black Fairy Coffee

Nestled in a row of old shophouses, Black Fairy Coffee joins a growing list of hip cafes with quaint names along Tyrwhitt Road – such as Chye Seng Huat Hardware Coffee Bar, Tiramisu Hero and Wimbly Lu. Black Fairy Coffee is an artisanal cafe, restaurant and sports bar all rolled into one.

The cafe that opened in late 2018 has an outdoor sitting area. The interior is not big and there is a bar at the rear of the dining space. The furnishing is eclectic but overall the place looks pleasant.

Menu of Black Fairy Coffee


The menu of Black Fairy Coffee is not extensive but adequate. There are protein bowls, sandwiches, salads and a selection of small plates like roasted eggplants, sausages and, of course like in any trendy cafe, truffle fries. There is also a fairly good dessert section. Below are pictures of the menu when we visited Black Fairy Coffee in the evening.

Dinner at Black Fairy Coffee

We ordered the Beef Stew ($15.90) and the Roasted Pork Belly Bowl ($16.90) for dinner.

Black Fairy Coffee Beef Stew

The Black Fairy Coffee’s Beef Stew was served with 2 pieces of delightful toasted garlic bread. The beef, simmered in a rich broth with potatoes, carrots, herbs and other ingredients, was tender and tasty. It was a flavourful dish that was satisfying and enjoyable.

Black Fairy Coffee Protein Bowl

The Roasted Pork Belly Bowl looked good and was delicious too. A small portion of steamed rice was topped with a colourful assortment of salad, coleslaw, capiscun and sweet potatoes. Crispy roasted pork belly with a sweetish glaze was the protein in the healthy bowl. Everything combined well.

Black Fairy Coffee Cakes
Black Fairy Coffee Cake

We had the ondehondeh cake ($6.90 per slice) for dessert accompanied by black coffee ($4.50 per cup). The coffee was robust and good. The ondehondeh cake, with coconut butter cream, dessicated coconut andand gula Melaka in between layers of pandan sponge cake, was not magical by any means but was nice enough to give our meal at Black Fairy Coffee a good fairy tale ending.
