You know the cup of coffee you’re holding is proof of the highest quality, when it has been roasted and brewed with a tradition that has withstood the test of time. At Caffe Vergnano 1882 Singapore on Beach Road, this is exactly what you get – an aromatic and robust cup of Joe that is satisfying to its very last drop.

Since 1882, the Vergnano family from Piedmont, Italy, has dedicated itself to the art of coffee roasting and brewing – one that has lasted four generations – through wars and in a day and age where brands often come and go. Luckily for us, we can now score their exclusive slow-roasted 1882 Arabica blend right here in Singapore, at the Caffe Vergnano 1882 Singapore on Beach Road.

Coffee was great & staff were friendly! I was here twice this week! I Will definitely recommend this place to my friends. Keep up the good work!
It’s a nice place to do some work and the food is good!!!!
Great experience, loved the ambience. Had the waffles with eggs and bacon. Coffee was nice. Would be back again with family or friends for the ambience.
I love their food and also love their drinks. Their ambience is also nice to dine in. Will definitely go back there for more again.
Visited Caffe Vergnano on recommendation by my Italian friend for their good coffee. Had their The Whole Nine Yards all-day breakfast with signature Iced Caffe Gianduja which were great. The atmosphere is quiet and it’s a great place to chill and do your work.
The food, service and environment were excellent! However, Caffe Vergnano did not seem to know that a reservation had been made. This has happened before with another restaurant, so it seems to me that there is a communication issue between Quandoo and the restaurants.
Coffee was excellent, coffee with chocolate mixed drink is also good according to my son. Pina cota is not up to par, mashed avocado with scrambled eggs sandwich is above average but dish should have some side salad rather than plain sandwich.
Really love the ambience there. Cozy and classy. Price for the food is reasonable. Coffee and latte are much nicer than Starbucks. Must-try would be the Ferraro Rocher cake.
Good quiet environment. Coffee was good and the place was not too crowded early this morning. Had coffee which was good but the pain au chocolat is a rip off( I feel)
Coffee is good! And I love the cosy place. But just a bit too small internal seating area. Some cooler for outside areas will be useful especially on a hot day.
