A.R.C is a one of those upmarket coffee shops that Singapore is becoming more and more famous for. Serving both coffee and food, it’s a popular place for brunch and coffee with many Singaporeans and foreign guests alike.
We’ve had coffee here, but not the food so we can’t comment whether the meals here are good or not. What we can say is that the coffee is excellent. World class.Perfect temperature, smooth coffee taste and perfectly textured milk. Susan had the vanilla latte and really enjoyed it mainly because it’s much sweeter than a normal coffee.The interior design of the cafe is that typical minimalist bare concrete look with wooden benches and won’t win any design awards for originality, but it’s pleasant nonetheless.
Outside there is a massive mural on the wall which is a tourist attraction in itself. You’ll often see people here with tongsis in hand taking selfies. And we highly recommend it because it’s simply one of the best murals we’ve seen in Singapore.Prices here are expensive when compared to a Singaporean kopitiam, but they are normal for Singapore. Definitely a place to come if you’re a coffee lover.
