TOP Romantic Cafes for Casual Date Nights

Date night does not always have to mean fancy restaurants and candlelight dinner. For a first date or to keep things casual, a cosy cafe can be a great spot to meet and have a nice affordable meal while enjoying each other’s company. The cafe should preferably have a touch of romance and interesting enough to spark conversation. You may be thinking of setting up a first date. Or you may be meeting someone whose company you enjoy but want to keep things light and easygoing. Read on for a list of casual dining places in various locations of Singapore The Ordinary Patrons (TOP) have visited and which we think can be romantic cafes for casual date nights.

Birds of a Feather Cafe

We provide links to our blog posts where you can see more photos of the cafes and have some idea of the types of food available and the prices.

Birds of a Feather

Birds of a Feather is a trendy chic cafe serving the usual cafe food, but with some twists that reflect their Chinese origins. Unusual interior with two air-well openings and hand-crafted art pieces make the space interesting and will give you something to talk about in case the awkward silence becomes too lengthy. It has a well stock bar and stays open till late into the night making it one of the most suitable romantic cafes for casual date nights. Read more.
