The Coffee Nations


We were in the neighbourhood of Bugis and feeling thirsty and a little peckish. We thought, why not walk across the street to The Coffee Nations to have a quick caffeine boost and some light bites.

Mexican Mocha Frappe (S$6.60)
Made with chocolate, cinnamon, espresso and our frappe based topped with whipped cream and drizzled with chocolate

The frappe was average; nothing out of this world. But for what’s it worth – it was a ice-cold drink on a sunny, hot afternoon.

Ham and Cheese Sandwich Melts (S$10.80)
Sliced baked ham with cheddar cheese

A simple sandwich that served to fulfil the hunger pangs, but it was again, run-on-the-mill.

Pan Seared Salmon (S$16.90)
Norwegian salmon fillet served with tasty tomato coulis

The salmon fillet was somewhat better – it was not overcooked, flaky and the herb crust was somewhat flavourful.

Although for the price, I was expecting perhaps a little larger portion.

    surprised to see this feature.. this cafe is pretty low profile :)
    if you do go back, do try the pastas.. they’re pretty good.

  2. Well, quaint cafes are really nice in Singapore. Singapore needs more of these places. But sometimes I worry for their going concern – they always seem so empty and they have fixed expenses. I’l definitely return to try their pastas! Anything to recommend?

  3. I stumbled upon your blog, and your post certainly reminded me about this place. I have been away from Singapore for nearly a year, and I almost forgot about this place. I’m glad it is still there. I have not dined there before, but I think their hot coffees ain’t that that bad. I like their Turkish coffee. When they first started out, I remember them being a little more crowded. I’m not too sure about how things are for them now.

    Singapore certainly needs more quaint places like this:)

    • Thanks for popping by then! I’ll love to try their coffee again – and with your recommendation of Turkish coffee!

      A powerful share, I just given this onto a celgoalue who was doing a little bit analysis on this. And he in actual fact purchased me breakfast as a result of I discovered it for him.. smile. So let me reword that: Thnx for the deal with! However yeah Thnkx for spending the time to discuss this, I feel strongly about it and love studying more on this topic. If doable, as you become expertise, would you mind updating your weblog with extra particulars? It’s extremely useful for me. Massive thumb up for this blog submit!

  4. I’ve been in the vicinity of this cafe a few times. It looks promising, and more than once I thought of going in. But it always looks empty so in the end I backtracked. Good that you blogged about it so I guess we can give this place a miss.

    • I’m with you on this – the place was rather empty, save for our table and another table of 1. Sometimes, quiet is good, sometimes, not so. I would go back to try their coffee again and as someone recommended – their pasta.

    i’m with Kayla on the drinks.. although ironically my favourite drink from this coffee house is the hot chocolate :X

    i liked the aglio olio prawns and there was this.. olive oil based one with mushrooms n chicken.
    haven’t tried but the seafood cream sauce one looks promising too :) (yes i do like my pastas.. heh)

    • Hot Chocolate? Hmm…
      Right – seems like you’re quite the supporter of their pastas, perhaps on the next visit :)
