Top Hougang & Serangoon Cafes – Best Heartland Cafes Singapore

The name Hougang comes from the Hokkien and Teochew word Au-Kang, which refers to the ‘river end’, since it is located upstream or at the back of Sungei Serangoon. Nestled next door, the quaint residential area of Serangoon belies a rich history dating back to the early 19th century. Tamil Muslim traders from India pioneered the settlement of the area and probably named the area after burong ranggong, a small, common marsh bird in the swamps of the Serangoon River. Today, both Hougang and Serangoon Heartlands have become a popular and trendy melting pot for both locals and even tourists. We have put together a comprehensive list of Top Hougang & Serangoon Cafes – Best Heartland Cafes in Singapore for you to have a cuppa and watch the world go by.
