The most Instagrammable cafes in Singapore
1. Hvala Singapore
Known for serving matcha and tea varieties curated from various regions in Japan (in the most unique teacups), this modern-day Japanese teahouse has three gorgeous outlets scattered around town. Pay a trip to the flagship outlet at Chijmes and you’ll be treated to minimalist, zen interior decor, delicious sliced cakes and petit gateau, as well as a vast selection of tea. We often go for the sliced goma cake and a cup of thick, frothy hojicha latte.
Hvala Singapore, multiple locations including Chijmes, 111 Somerset and Craig Road
2. Merci Marcel Tiong Bahru
Of course you’ve heard of Merci Marcel, but we’re particularly in love with its outlet at Tiong Bahru. The French-Balinese vibes of this Instagrammable cafe is on point! Choose to sit at the lush glasshouse garden patio and admire the vivid citrus-toned palette and mustard mosaic tile flooring. Hot tip: use the greenery and plants around you as a backdrop when you’re taking pics of food for the ‘gram.
Merci Marcel Tiong Bahru, #01-68, 56 Eng Hoon Street, Singapore 160056
3. Wildseed Cafe at The Alkaff Mansion
Escape the city (and take your dog with you) when you head to Wildseed Cafe for brunch on the weekends! This pet-friendly cafe and patisserie is filled with flora and fauna, making it the perfect Instagrammable cafe in Singapore to congregate with friends and family. Try the atas kaya toast or egg croissant, because are you really at a cafe if you don’t capture a boomerang of a runny, sous vide egg atop a piece of toast?

4. Five Oars Coffee Roasters
This local homegrown cafe in Singapore is known for its signature brunch classics and freshly roasted coffee. We love the rustic, earthy tones of its interiors that evoke Melbourne coffee shop vibes (ugh, the wanderlust is real). Sneak some outfit pics in this Instagrammable cafe, and don’t forget to take an Instagram story of its beaut stacks of waffles and eggs benedict.

5. Coexist Coffee Co.
We’d be surprised if you haven’t seen this cafe on Instagram yet. Tucked away in the industrial Hillview building, the rooftop spot boasts a white and burgundy interior (split right in the middle) for an edgy look you’ll definitely want to snap pics of. Swing by its other outlets at Keong Saik and Paya Lebar for good food and coffee (we’re so excited to check out the latter – it’s a massive new two-storey outlet at the Lifelong Learning Institute).

6. Amber Ember
Jaffles and coffee, anyone? This chic cafe is just the place for a cosy, lazy Saturday afternoon. We love its dusty pink walls and the potted plants scattered around the space – a dreamy backdrop for food and photos (the kind where you strike a thoughtful pose, staring off into the distance). Tired of the usual egg-centric brunch? Perhaps try the miso butter pasta topped with seared tiger prawns and bonito flakes. Yum!
Amber Ember, #01-01, 730 Upper Serangoon Road, Singapore 534613
7. Kafe Utu
Get a taste of rich African culture at Kafe Utu. Located in the buzzy ‘hood of Keong Saik, the restaurant sits in a shophouse with lively artworks, woven furniture and vibrant colours embellishing the space. Settle in a cosy seat on the ground floor, or head to the rooftop and snap a pic of you and the gang indulging in African cocktails against the CBD backdrop.
Kafe Utu, 12 Jiak Chuan Road, Singapore 089265
8. Knots Cafe & Living
Make this your weekend pitstop. Focusing on flowers, furniture and food, this garden cafe is where you can feast on wholesome dishes in a homely setting. After you’ve taken your fill of #OOTDs to last you for the next week or so, pick a green corner to settle in and watch the world go by with a coffee and pastry in hand. It’s an idyllic spot to escape from the bustle of the city.

We’re all familiar with the buttery croissants from Tiong Bahru Bakery, but did you know you can also enjoy them in a safari setting at Open Farm Community? This Instagrammable cafe in Singapore will make you feel as though you’ve been whisked away to the African plains. If you’re out to brunch with the kids, you can even let them run free at the outdoor playground!

10. Le Jardin
This pet-friendly, floral-themed concept at Fort Canning gives us major Alice in Wonderland vibes. Think interiors decorated with fresh flowers, marble tabletops, vintage rattan chairs as well as ornate teacups and glassware. We love how the lush green trees and garden-like setting of the outdoor dining area make it a great place for taking dreamy pictures to fill your feed.
