How to get to the 93°C Bean & Leaf Café in Holland Village

Everything that can be found within the bounds of Holland Village is very convenient. Everything seems like a six minute walk maximum if you’re coming from the Holland Village MRT Station. It’s either that, or I just walk too fast. Lol. The 93°C Bean & Leaf Café is literally beside the Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, even closer if you’re coming from the MRT side, so it’s hard to miss it. You’ll probably see a big lump of people standing in front of the café, waiting for some seats to be emptied, because the place is always packed with people. Best time to go here is during weekday afternoons, were your only competition for a seat are students from the nearest universities around and a few expat moms with their awesome babies hanging around the family-friendly café.

What to do and see in the 93°C Bean & Leaf Café in Holland Village

Just like Coffee Bean and Starbucks and every other American café, the 93°C Bean & Leaf Café is very commercial-looking. It’s far from being the hipster, romantic, indie, homegrown type of café that most local café connoisseurs would prefer, but that doesn’t mean it offers anything less. In fact, the place is very reminiscent of a simple antiquated garden, like a DIY garage garden, seeing all the gray-washed walls, simple seats and cramped layout. This is good ‘cos everything about it looks laidback and easy-going, which makes longer hours of chats and coffee sessions even more preferred. The coffee plus food choices are something to anticipate too, because they offer big servings and that are easy to appreciate.
