Underrated.

Albeit providing the similar local staples like their counterparts,like Wang Cafe, Toast Box etc. My wife and I actually prefer Coffee & Toast over them. Unlike their competitors who tend to try to distinguish themselves with their shop decor, Coffee & Toast has no frills. What we like about them are the main vitals like reasonable price, value for money servings, fresh and delicious food, and most importantly good and fragrant coffee.

My favourite food to order would be curry chicken, which to me is a good blend of both the Malay and Chinese type of curry. In terms of flavour, home cooked chinese feel whereas treading the boundary of Malay spiciness. Enjoy soaking the rice with the generous serving of gravy and savouring the heavenly mixture. I also like their half boiled eggs which is superbly done, watery yet not a tad raw. To top it off, they do not scrimp on the size of the eggs like some other coffee shops out there. As for my wife, she loves their Otah buns, which unlike Toastbox's which has the Otah paste thinly spread on the toast, Coffee & Toast fill the soft buns with thick wads of Otah meat, making it taste like Otah burger. Spicy, juicy and oh so scrumptious.

That hits the spot!

My husband and I loved sharing our lunch meals as it gives us the option to order more choices. Looking for a place to eat with the lunch crowd is no easy task and sometimes you end up settling for anything.

We spotted an empty table at Coffee & Toast! Not knowing what to order, I went ahead with their Rendang Chicken Rice and an Iced Milk Tea and my husband ordered the Nasi Lemak and Iced Coffee. The lunch was awesome; having the right spice and also some pickles (acha) for that sour tangy taste absolutely hit the spot.

Needless to say, Coffee & Toast became our most frequent place to chill out for a meal and drinks.

hidden gem

Coffee & Toast deserves more attention that it actually receives. it doesnt advertise nor does it seem extraordinary on the exterior, close to being unnoticeable. one fine day i had a craving for malay food & i decided to try their chicken rendang. my goodness it was really yummy, although it wasnt the malay style i was looking for, it tasted good even though there was a chinese fusion to it. the curry chicken was above average but the generous portion made up for it's taste.

the kaya toast was absolutely wonderful! it had the right amount of portions for its butter, kaya and its toast had a lovely crisp i was looking for! Coffee & Toast is officially at the top of my list, on par with the legendary Ya Kun :)

Quiet place!

I came here on a weekday morning with my friends for breakfast. I was expecting it to be rather full, considering how this place is located in the city area. However, it was surprisingly quiet and was quite a nice place to chill at. There were several people around me reading their papers and enjoying their breakfast at a nice, leisurely pace.

Me and my friends ordered a basic toast set, with milo and some bread. To me, it tasted rather ordinary. There was nothing unique about the place. In fact, I did not like the service there, I found the staff rather nosy. As there were not many customers around at that hour, the staff kept looking through the window glancing at their customers and also stared at me and my friends while we were eating. Despite the good ambience, I felt really uncomfortable and I doubt I would ever go back there again.

Old school breakfast

Coffee and Toast sells some of the most amazing kaya toasts around town. Although Coffee and Toast hasn't been around for very long, the standard of its food is definitely very good, comparable to even that of Ya Kun. In fact, the menu selection of Coffee and Toast is even more varied than Ya Kun, as Coffee and Toast serves up breakfast food from several other local cuisines, so customers can enjoy a good bowl of Mee Siam and a plateful of crispy toast bread at the same time.

One of my favourites from Coffee and Toast would be the Ham and Cheese croissant. Served warm with just the right proportion of ham and cheese covered by soft croissant bread, this particular food item is pretty unique in comparison to the typical local breakfast food that Coffee and Toast serves.

Pricewise, Coffee and Toast is pretty affordable. Definitely a good place for a quick breakfast before work, or even to sit down with friends and have a good chat while surrounded by the sights and smells of old school nostalgic local food.

Peanut butter and honey toast!

When I was on a six-month internship at a company in Tanjong Pagar, I would always head to Coffee & Toast for breakfast. Like Toast Box, it sells traditional toast, drinks, and other local breakfast items like Nasi Lemak and Mee Rebus.

My personal favourite is their unique peanut butter and honey toast, which isn't sold anywhere else in Singapore. It's such an ingenious combination. Peanut butter is slightly salty and makes one feel 'gelat' after a while - an effect which is easily countered by the taste of sweet honey. Ya Kun sells a similar Peanut Kaya toast, but Kaya doesn't go as well with peanut butter.

All in all, a great place to have breakfast or just to chill!

Simple, humble, food.

This chain can be found in kopitiams or food halls, selling humble local delights like chicken rendang, nasi lemak and the likes. Of course, not to forget, they sell, like what their name is, traditional coffee and toast.

Their coffee comes in a small cup, and they serve traditional kaya toast. This is a cheaper alternative to yakun and toast box, but equally satisfying. You can even grab some chee cheong fun hot and steaming to go with your coffee.

There's nothing much to speak about this coffee chain as it is nothing special, however, it will be good place to have a cuppa after a day's work or a fun filled shopping day.

Great Price, Great Food!

Coffee & Toast seems to be the go-to place for many workers in the central business district. Since it is so conveniently located right at the MRT station, there are really long queues every morning and also at lunch time. However, the well trained staff keeps the queues moving really quickly, so even though the queues are long, you don't have to wait for such a long time. In the morning, they actually have many common drinks made ready, so you can pick up and go; however, if you want your drink steaming hot, you may want to ask them to make it on the spot.

My favorite thing on the menu is the simple hot milo. The way they do their milo is awesome. They don't skimp on the powder, so the milo is really 'gao' (thick) and not diluted like some other coffee shops. I wouldn't say they 'strike the right balance' with the sugar and condensed milk, because the milo turns out really sweet, but that's the way I like it. It's the best 'perk me up' on rainy weekday mornings, when you're sleepy and need to drag yourself to work. Other than milo, they also have the usual Singaporean drinks like kopi and teh, but I enjoy their milo the best.

Foodwise, the typical Singaporean breakfast Kaya toast is done really well. Some other toast shops are really stingy and only serve you one piece of toast (kaya sandwiched between 2 slices of bread), but here they serve you 4 pieces of toast. They're not that generous with the kaya, but it's still ok (more healthy too i guess!)

I wouldn't recommend you to go to this branch to have a breakfast meeting or to meet friends, because it is really distracting and noisy with so many workers streaming in and out just to pick up a drink. During the off-peak hours (just before lunch or tea time), it is great for a meeting place though, as it is much quieter. It is the perfect place to get a quick drink or snack though, the service is really top notch.

Old school yummy snacks

Coffee & Toast gives my tummy simply joy! I absolutely love its ham and cheese toast. The bread is a very appetizing brown and is toasted very crisp yet not overly so that it become difficult to bite through. The ham is fresh and the cheese is a deliciously soft goodness. I cannot stop raving about it. The butter kaya bread is also very good and is worth a try!

Its prices are also very reasonable and it being located at major mrt stations make it an easy stop for busy people to stop by and take away something to fill their tummies or quench their thirst. They also have sitting areas for patrons who choose to dine in.

Its whole concept feels kind of old school, and thats what I like about it!

So affordable!

Coffee and Toast offers your typical Singaporean breakfast- boiled eggs, toast with butter and kaya, a warm cup of black coffee or milo. When I first tried their toast, I fell in love instantly. The butter melts in your mouth, and the salty butter goes perfectly well with their sweet kaya. The bread is also done the way I like it - not too crispy and not too soft. Toasted perfectly. Their milo is also done just perfectly- a little condensed milk, not too rich,and not too diluted, the right warm temperature, enough to warm your body in a cold office environment without scalding your tongue. The best of all, its so affordable. Good eats at a good price, the ultimate comfort.
