No one can deny the wonders of a good cup of coffee to start your morning, and bonus points if it’s affordable and accessible. Generation Coffee checks all these boxes. With multiple locations across Singapore’s hawker centres, even in the CBD, it’s now easier to get your caffeine fix with a Kopi O, an Iced Latte, or anything in-between. Because their coffee is always made from freshly pulled espresso shots, every serving is guaranteed to perk up your day.

Tingkats have become a rare sight in Singapore, but this cultural icon is definitely worth reviving. Immerse yourself in the traditional Nyonya craft and customise your own Tingkat to bring home. The best part? You can flex your flair for painting while saving the environment as you use this Tingkat to dabao (take away) food.
