Satisfy your coffee cravings in Little India in Singapore

Although tea has long been the drink of choice in India, the consumption of coffee is vastly increasing across the country. India is the third largest producer of coffee in Asia, and the sixth largest producer in the entire world, so it’s only natural that the nation joins in on the coffee trend.

Catering to Singaporeans and foreigners, the Countryside Cafe has a countryside setting mixed with the rustic elements of Little India. It was started as a place where people who are new to the area can meet, network, and catch up with each other. While you’re meeting someone new, you can try one of the cafe’s many freshly brewed coffees, lattes, and cappuccinos both as a hot drink and an iced, cold drink.

Here, they serve bottled cold brews that can be opened much like a bottle of beer. Their speciality coffees are black, white, and mocha and they can be brewed hot or cold. While at the coffee bar, be sure to try some of their delicious desserts to go with your cuppa joe.
