Costa Coffee, World’s 2nd Largest Coffee Chain Has Hit The Town!

The sky was clear blue with fluffy white clouds hung in clusters. It was a lovely cool Saturday morning to take a train down to town for our breakfast. Hubby & I decided that we should check out Costa Coffee; a trip long due since their opening last August.

With 3 outlets sprouting out in Singapore, Costa Coffee further extends its presence into the growing Asian market, tapping into the coffee culture that has gained a stronger following in recent years. Today Costa is the largest & fastest growing coffee shop chain in the UK!

Hubby & I soon found ourselves snuggling in a private cosy corner at their Raffles City outlet, chatting merrily while our son was still asleep at home.

What we had:
costa coffee singapore capuccino
Cappuccino (Primo S$5.80, Medio S$6.30, Massimo S$6.80). Enjoy this espresso with steamed, frothy milk & chocolate dusting whenever you like.

costa coffee singapore flat white
Flat White, only available in one size (Primo S$6.30) for now, as the Primo cup already has 3 shots of Ristretto instead of Espresso. A rich, full-flavoured coffee with a velvety, smooth texture; their Flat White would stand out even without its distinctive hand-finished pattern.

costa coffee singapore paninis
Pesto Chicken & Olive Panini @ S$7.20 ★★★★★

toastie deluxe costa coffee singapore toasties
Toastie Deluxe @ S$5.30

costa coffee singapore carrot cake mocha
Carrot Cake @ S$7.20,
Iced Mocha (Primo S$6.50, Medio S$7, Massimo S$7.50)

costa coffee singapore chocolate muffin
Chocolate Muffin @ S$3.90,
Strawberry Cream (Primo S$6.30, Medio S$6.80, Massimo S$7.30)

Affogato @ S$5.80, an Italian dessert drowning in Espresso.

What we liked:
Hubby & I don’t quite fancy having pastries served at coffee joints; they’re normally not very tasty. Costa has certainly raised the bar with their food & drinks served. Their Panini was super yummy, a word I never expect myself to use on a place like this. The bread was toasted to a crisp, with tasty fillings & portion was generous. Must-try!!

Toastie Deluxe was just any simple ham & cheese toast, but it was real tasty with the melted cheese; apparently one of their hot favourites.

Biting into the Carrot Cake, you’ll taste a scented aroma deriving from the cream. The cake has a princely amount of walnut bits which is wondrously scrummy. Definitely your above-average carrot cake with its moist & soft texture.

That session, I learnt that all food & drinks at Costa are locally made, except for the beans used, which are roasted in London. Besides serving up aromatic coffees, efforts were made to decorate them. I’m not a big fan of coffees, but with such cute designs, who could resist having a cup.

The world's 2nd largest coffee chain a been a hit with coffee lovers since it first set up shop at Chevron House last August, for its quality handcrafted coffees made with its signature Mocha Italia flavour, hearty bites & personable service. With 40 years of experience behind them, Costa has discovered the finest beans, equipment & techniques to make sure that every cup makes the grade. Overall, food was better than expected; both cakes & drinks were not too sweet compared to couple of other coffee joints. Hubby & I had a real satisfying breakfast. Ratings: ★★★★☆

Thanks to Costa Coffee for hosting us, & Christiana for your kind arrangements! Apology for delaying our session till now, & I’m glad I didn't miss the boat!

  3. Looks like a great place to check it out. The prices quoted seems slightly cheaper than other popular coffee chain here. And the handcrafted coffee looks too good to miss.
