More conducive than your regular Starbucks and without the pin-drop silence of a library, The Book Cafe is a chill spot to hang out, read, or to get some work done.

Digital nomads will love that there are power sockets both inside and outside, and the friendly staff will supply you with extension cables if needed. The menu includes all-day breakfast, the classic bangers & mash, decadent shibuya toast, coffee and more.

Working Title is one of the few cafes that is halal certified. This burger bar doubles as an excellent place to work from, with an eclectic decor that is equal parts industrial and nostalgic.

If you’re hungry, check out their menu of indulgent burgers, as well as small bites like the truffle tater tots, and a range of desserts.

Highlights on the menu include their tuna steak, eggs benedict, and spicy pumpkin soup.

The Muffinry is located within one of the quaint-looking shophouses along Telok Ayer, which stand in contrast to the skyscrapers of the nearby Central Business District area. This homely cafe offers a peaceful place to work, whether you’re seated at the al fresco area with plenty of sunlight, or making yourself comfortable at one of the sofas upstairs. Must-tries on the menu are definitely their gourmet muffins, like the signature spiced carrot and the double crumble chocolate, but they also have a range of sandwiches, salads, quiches and more.

Address: 112 Telok Ayer St, Singapore 068581

Opening hours:

Mon to Fri 8am-9pm
