Quick Coffee: Habitat Coffee

One of the well known cafes at Upper Thomson Road is Habitat Coffee. It has a very simplistic interior with minimal decor. Habitat coffee has a sizeable menu; consisting of breakfast items, pastas and various sandwiches. They also have a limited choice of cakes and waffles as well. We tried their Tiramisu; it had a very strong alcohol taste, soft and creamy but the coffee sponge was at the bottom. Overall it was quite well balanced. Now moving onto the coffee. We had a cappuccino(Regular – S$4.9, Large – S$5.9), piccolo latte(S$4.2) and a normal latte(Regular – S$4.9, Large – S$5.9) as well. The cappuccino was strong, bitter and smooth. The piccolo gave quite a strong kick and was smooth as well. The latte however tasted kind of tangy, the coffee taste sticks to the tongue and actually tasted stronger than the cappuccino. We really enjoyed Habitat’s coffee a lot and it is a must try! Coffee Rating: 7.5/10 Located at: 223 Upper Thomson Rd, Singapore 574355 For more information visit their website:

Quick Coffee: Five By Five

At Upper Thomson Road, lies this cafe hidden behind the main street. Walking in, you can feel a very chill, relaxed atmosphere. The menu has a variety of breakfast/brunch items. If you are looking for an array of desserts, this place is not for you. Now for the main part; the COFFEE. We ordered a latte(S$4.5) and a cappuccino(S$4.5). The latte had a hint of sourness, light and not too milky. The cappuccino was quite bitter, light but rough. For both cups of coffee, the art was the same, just in case you are into that. Not to mention if you like the smell of coffee, the aroma is not really there at all. Overall the coffee is not the best, nor the worst. It seats nicely somewhere in the middle.
