More about Monniker, Singapore

These caffeine alchemists have fine tuned their craft to create the perfect cup making Monniker over in Balestier a must-visit for the coffee addicts of Singapore. You’ll also find Valrhona chocolate drinks and gourmet teas as well as a range of craft beers and ciders.

The ambience is good but the space is small. It's good to have small gatherings but not for too long. Foods are good and flavor a are all moderate in amount. I will definitely visit again!

It was a lovely morning and we really enjoyed the time being there. Food was nice and served quickly. If the vinegar for salad could have been put desperately, perfect!

It was a good experience at Monniker. I like the cozy small setting of the cafe and the food is tasty. Love the dark chocolate cake today!

Nice food and ambiance! Too bad they ran out of the beef steak sandwich, so I ordered the Breakfast Fit for a Captain and the black tea with Japanese white peach. My friend also ordered the alcoholic tea, and it was awesome!

love the coziness and atmosphere of the cafe. service was attentive and great; food and coffee was good but sightly on the pricey side for its breakfast offerings
