TOP Cafes in Siglap 2024

According to the book Celebrating SIGLAP, the name of this leafy area around Upper East Coast Road was derived when “a Malay chieftain, Tok Lasam, who upon first landing in the area during a particularly dark thunderstorm, called it Si-gelap, which translated literally from Malay means darkness that conceals“. Today, there are many interesting cafes in Siglap which bring sunshine to the residents there.

Starbucks

Starbucks @ Siglap

This is one of our favourite Starbucks outlet in Singapore. It has a different vibe and yet there is still free WiFi and you know exactly how your latte is going to be like.
