Butler Koffee at Havelock 2

Anyone who knows me would know just how much I love my coffee. One of my go-to spots for a good strong brew is Butler Koffee, an under-the-radar cafe that recently moved to its very own space. Previously operating out of Asian-Western restaurant Beng Who Cooks, the cosy cafe has now found an official home in Havelock 2, a short walk away from Chinatown MRT Station.
The cafe’s Chinese name, 咖啡罢了 (ka fei ba le), is a pun on “butler”, and translates to “only coffee”. Started by Alicia Yap, Butler Koffee originated as a passion project since her days as a barista when she was studying in the UK.

The new space is cosy and well-lit, with aesthetically pleasing pastel pink and dark blue chairs contrasting against the off-white walls. You can also sit by the counter if you enjoy watching the baristas at work!
