It still says in bold letters on the wall outside – Flowers Coffee Space – but inside the ground floor now looks like a fairly typical cafe with a retail section. The floral scent and captivating arrangements of fresh flowers are gone but Stamping Ground Coffee House is still a charming cafe and a great spot in Siglap for brunch.
Where have all the flowers gone
We visited Stamping Ground in 2016 (see our post here). It was sharing the shophouse at 87 Upper East Coast Road with a florist, Dawn Q. floral design. That meant the space was filled with beautiful flowers where floral scent and the aroma of fresh coffee permeated.
It seemed that the business of Dawn Q. floral design was doing so well that they needed bigger premises and the florist shop moved to a new studio in Upper Paya Lebar. Stamping Ground has a new florist partner – Petite Fleur – that specialises in bouquets. However, the colourful fresh flowers and enchanting floral scent were missing when we visited the cafe in Singlap recently.
Stamping Ground Coffee House
Stamping Ground still has the cosy neighbourhood cafe atmosphere. There are wooden communal tables and a bar top counter inside and few tables out in the patio. The impressive range of coffee making equipment is still there.
Stamping Ground Coffee House Menu
The menu of Stamping Ground Coffee has been expanded. There are now more food items on the all day brunch menu – including avocado toasts, burgers, waffles and yogurt bowls. Below are pictures of pages of the menu.
Brunch in Siglap
We visited Stamping Ground in Siglap on a recent weekend for brunch. We ordered the Bacon Jam Sandwich ($13) and the Hawaiian Pulled Pork Burger ($15). We also had their Long Black ($4), which was very good – smooth, slightly chocolaty with fruity notes.
The Bacon Jam Sandwich not a traditional sandwich but a lightly toasted brioche topped with candied bacon, egg, cheese and greens. It was drizzled with coffee balsamic glaze. The sweet, savoury and slightly tangy flavours combined well. It was a light but enjoyable dish.
The Hawaiian Pulled Pork Burger was served with some chips on the side. The burger had juicy shredded pork, pineapple, purple cabbage and strips of apple in a soft fluffy bun. It was a nice pulled pork burger except that we found the hot sauce a little too overpowering. We would like it more if the pork was not so spicy.
Nice Neighbourhood Cafe
Serving quality coffee and a fair range of light bites, Stamping Ground Coffee House in Siglap is a very nice neighbourhood cafe. We missed the floral scent but the coffee aroma and cosy atmosphere made up for it.
