Craftsmen Coffee Siglap – Sip, Savor, and Stay Awhile
Two years had passed since we moved to the charming neighborhood of Siglap, yet, to our surprise, we had never ventured into the heart of this vibrant community for a cup of coffee. It was a lazy Sunday, the kind where the world seems to slow down, and the allure of sleeping in had proven irresistible. With no particular urge to whip up a home-cooked breakfast, our day unfolded with a shared desire for a great cup of coffee. That’s when I suggested to Mary, “Let’s try over the road.”
Intrigued by the prospect of discovering a new gem in our own backyard a stone throw from Blu Kouzina Siglap, we strolled across the street, where the quaint signboard of “Craftsmen Coffee Siglap” greeted us. The aroma of freshly roasted beans beckoned, promising a warm and cozy escape from the familiar routines of our weekend. As we pushed open the door, the friendly smile was given on our arrival, and we couldn’t help but smile back as we took in the cozy interior.
The atmosphere was exactly what we needed for our leisurely day out. The rustic wooden furniture, adorned with soft, earthy tones and potted plants, exuded a welcoming charm. It was a place where conversations flowed freely, and the art of relaxation was highly regarded. We selected a corner spot by the window, bathed in soft sunlight, and quickly made ourselves comfortable.
A cheerful barista approached with a friendly smile, and as we perused the menu, she recommended their house blend, the “Rwanda Macuba” It seemed like a fitting choice for our first visit. We placed our orders, and as we awaited our coffee, I couldn’t help but marvel at how this day had unfolded. It was as though the universe had conspired to bring us here, to Craftsmen Coffee Siglap, at the perfect moment.
As our mugs were set before us, we took our first sips of the Rwanda Macuba the rich, velvety notes of the coffee washed over our taste buds with notes of maple syrup, molasses and cocoas, we both exchanged contented glances. It was clear that this moment marked the beginning of a beautiful tradition in our lives – a place where we could escape the routine, savor the simple pleasures of life, and explore the charms of our neighborhood.
In the heart of Siglap, we had found a gem that had been hidden from us for far too long. Craftsmen Coffee Siglap was not just a café; it was a haven for those in search of a tranquil Sunday morning, good company, and, most importantly, a cup of coffee that would keep us coming back for more.
Our lazy Sunday had transformed into a delightful adventure, one that we hoped to relive many times in the future. With our newfound discovery, Siglap had become even more special, a place where our love for coffee and each other could flourish.
Craftsmen Coffee Siglap more than just Coffee, on to the Food options!

It’s not just coffee either. They are licensed, so I think I may pop in here for a beer, a bite and wifi – office #2 kicking in. I definitely feel that a coming on soon for yours truly when I have some late night calls with Europe. Working, eating, and a little people watching in a really cool coffee come bistro. I like a lot.
What did we consume this fine lazy Sunday morning @ Craftsmen Coffee Siglap?
This is a 3 tier brioche sandwich. Ham and cheese at the core, with our choice of poached egg atop. Drizzled with secret sauce (a nice black peppery concoction). Add a dollop of delicious guacamole, and a fresh side salad and you’re rocking with this bad boy. Oh yeah we also added a side of 3 slices of back bacon ha ha – did I forget to mention that?
OK another open sandwich for Mary and Baby Jude – this time smoked salmon, guacamole again, and scrambled eggs. Top that with some pea sprouts, some nuts and again the special secret sauce and whallop there she blows. Even though me and smoked salmon are not best bed fellows, I have to say this looks damn nice.
Described as a pulled pork borrito in the menu. Pulled pork, cheese, beans, green and red cabbage and of course that flipping secret sauce pops up again ha ha – all wrapped in a flour tortilla. I tell you what this was absolutely gorgeous. Akin to a Doner Kebab in my reckoning, it brought floods of memories back of days in Margate. Ollie thought the same but more like a curried kebab. Whatever the taste experience, this is a cracker. I’ll have this next time thanks Craftsmen Coffee Siglap, as I really really did like this one.
All up we had;
- 1x 3 tier poached egg, shaved ham and cheese sandwich,
- 1x 3 slices of back bacon,
- 1x toasted smoke salmon, guacamole and scrambled egg sandwich,
- 1x pulled pork wrap,
- 1x large hot chocolate,
- 1x large hazelnut latte,
- 1x large iced mocha, and
- 2x freshly squeezed orange juices.
- All for $84.
I think that is pretty damn reasonable for the quality we got. Wander round the corner to Star-costaloadof-Bucks and compare one day. I think I know where you’ll be coming back to. We will be for sure.
Now to a few lessons learnt from trip #1 to Craftsmen Coffee Siglap that I hope they don’t mind me sharing. Get there early as it gets mobbed there, or prepare to queue a while. Not negativity there at all, this is nothing but a positive observation as busy is good as it means quality execution. Secondly the portions are HUGE.
I would suggest sharing plates as you don’t want to waste any of this delicious food. Finally don’t leave it to the last minute of starving as it takes a little while to get your order delivered – and that is because it is packed and they have a tiny kitchen. BUT when it comes it is excellent food, and I reckon if you live East Coast and/or Siglap this place is a must. We’ll certainly be coming back – ENJOY!!!
