Family-friendly cafes with 1-for-1 deals
Cafes – we all love them, and for good reason. From being greeted by the wafting fragrance of freshly brewed coffee the second you walk through the door, to enjoying warm pastries in a quiet nook away from the stresses of life, they are a haven of relaxation, and full of good vibes.
As we say goodbye to group size restrictions, family outings are now back on the table. While you plan your next day out, make use of DBS/POSB’s dining deals to get 1-for-1 on food and beverages. There are over 24,000 deals to choose from, so you’ll be pretty spoilt for choice.
With June holidays coming up, here are 8 family-friendly cafes with 1-for-1 deals for you to save both your money and sanity, to help you narrow it down when looking for a place to take the whole family.

For many of us, carbs are the best part of any meal. Pasta, in particular, is one of the most delicious forms it comes in. GLEAN Cafe in Braddell serves up every kind of pasta you could possibly imagine, from classics like Seafood Aglio e Olio ($20) to more inventive creations like Mala Chilli Crab ($20) and Spiced Chicken Rendang Pasta ($18).
The Mala Chili Crab pasta is one of their signatures.

Stepping into Trehaus Cafe, you can’t help but feel as though you’ve left the city and entered a magical garden. The cosy cafe really lives up to its name – from the hyper-realistic vines that line the ceiling, to the benches that mimic the experience of going on a picnic.
Dig in to fresh bakes made by local bakers.

7. Cowpresso Coffee Roasters – 3-min from Beauty World MRT
Located just a 3-minute walk from Beauty World MRT station, Cowpresso Coffee Roasters is a quiet, hidden gem with a minimalist interior. Here, there are fluffy, filled donuts for the kids, and caffeine-packed beverages for the adults.
At night, the cool white overhead lighting is replaced with neon beam lights.

Coffee snobs will meet their match here; the baristas at Cowpresso are so serious about their coffee that they even run coffee-making workshops. Topics span espresso making and latte art, just to name a few.
At these workshops, participants are taught to make the signature Cowpresso specialty filter coffee using the V60 Pour Over method – a painstaking, small batch method that yields only one cup at a time. If that isn’t a mark of excellence, I’m not sure what is.
Donut purists will enjoy the Chocolate ($5.80) or Very Berry ($6.20), while those who are a little more adventurous with their choices can go for the newly released Espresso Double Bacon, a caffeine-loving carnivore’s dream.
DBS/POSB Cardmember deals: 1-for-1 on all donut main meals and espressos – valid till 30th April 2023.
