This pitifully short holidays, Micaela and I decided to take a siesta and run off to explore new cafes. We’d initially wanted to try Arbite but its opening hours didn’t match our timings. So we settled for a few cafes on the Yellow Line – Habitat Coffee, One Man Coffee, and Maple & Market.

Our first stop was at Habitat Coffee, further down Upper Thomson Road from One Man Coffee.

One thing I must mention here though, is that the truffle fries ($8) at Habitat Coffee are to DIE for. With so much truffle flavour and a generous sprinkling of cheese, the fries are absolutely heavenly. They’re not too soggy, nor too dry. Done just right at a decent price point. Definitely worth a try (and a return trip)!



One Man Coffee has a lot of hype surrounding it and it all boils (or rather, brews) down to its fantastic coffee blend. I’m not a coffee connoisseur but something was different with this one. Despite ordering the mocha, the coffee was distinct enough to be tasted above the chocolate. Beware though, if you’re coming to visit – One Man Coffee is housed inside Crust Pizza’s sign at 215R Upper Thomson Road. It’s easy to miss, but then again if you do you can always visit Habitat first and then hop over later.

Our last stop for the day was at Maple & Market. Located at Cassia Crescent (nearest MRT Dakota), it is both secluded and quiet. What stood out here was the decoration – it gave a homely feel. We had the Red Velvet Cake and coffee which were all good so no complaints here. Micaela’s Strawberry Green Tea was outstanding though, and even though I dislike green tea, this tea is definitely more than palatable.



Sometimes the point of cafe-hopping is not to try new foods or coffees, but for the company, and the talk-time. 🙂
