Singapore: Chye Seng Huat Hardware Coffee Bar On A Sunday Afternoon – Also known as CSHH is coffee roaster Papa Palheta’s flagship store in Singapore which in Malaysia, there’s also one cafe – PULP by Papa Palheta in Bangsar that is also part of its family.
As one of the most popular coffee houses in Singapore, Chye Seng Huat Hardware was in the list of my first cafe hopping’s itinerary. Well, I maybe too late into checking out this place, but it’s always late then never.
Singapore has sort of became my second home which I visit very frequently at least once a month. Cafe hopping in Singapore had been one of my to-do activity whenever I am there. Last Sunday’s afternoon was to check out this hardware shop turned cafe. A little bit of Google shows that CSHH was one of the first “integrated concept” cafes consisting a roastery, workshop, coffee tasting room and a store – all under one roof.
Although it’s accessible by MRT, but the hot weather just forced us to take the cab to the place. We were greeted by the original hardware shopfront but the main entrance is on the side. Interior amazed me a lot with a central communal coffee bar/preparation/cashier/seating. The industrial/modern setup is cozy and hipster enough for you to Instagram all day long.
It was a good escape out of the scorching humid weather of Singapore and the Cold Brew did chill and spice up the day!
