Top Cafes In Katong & East Coast – Best in Eastern Singapore

Katong’s heritage is steeped in prestige and wealth from the English, Portuguese, Anglo-French and Chinese settlers of the 19th to the mid-20th century. This charming residential enclave in the eastern part of Singapore was once filled with villas and mansions of the wealthy elites along its coast line. Today, Katong has lost most of its European legacy but the Peranakan (Straits Chinese) heritage and cuisine continues to hold its influence in the vicinity. But Peranakan flavours are not all that’s available in Katong, uniquely themed cafes are quietly sprouting out in the area. These cafes offer not just a quiet sanctuary but also a gastronomic feast for the palette. Here’s our top list of some of the best cafes in Katong for you.
