08 • Neptune

A newcomer to the slew of cafes located at Upper East Coast, Neptune’s stunning decor and floor-to-ceiling windows, which provide a gorgeous glow from the natural sunlight, is definitely a worthy contender of the high-profile cafes in the area.

Their interesting take on classic cafe fare has both Japanese and local influences, with notable dishes such as Chilli Crab and Chorizo, Seafood Somen and the Neptuna Melt – something we can only describe as the ultimate tuna mayo & grilled cheese sandwich. 😆

It may be good to note that Neptune has the same team behind both Atlas Coffeehouse and Apollo Coffee Bar, so expect to see some familiar dishes on the menu if you’ve conquered all 3 cafés. Nevertheless, their outlet exclusive dishes (like the ones mentioned above) are still definitely worth a try!

📍 Address: 237 East Coast Road, Singapore 428930
🚙 Nearest parking: Katong Square, 86 East Coast Road (8 minutes walk away)
⏰ Opening hours: 9am – 10pm (Tues-Sat), 9am – 7pm (Sun), closed on Mondays
