Open For Business: Caffebene

Popular South Korean coffee chain Caffebene will open its first Singapore outlet on Wednesday. The 1,400 sq ft cafe will offer 40 varieties of coffee, non-caffeinated latte and smoothies.

Popular picks include the misugaru latte (from $6.50), which is made from a multigrain blend that includes black sesame seeds, brown rice and barley; as well as citron tea ($4.20) and chocolate chip frappeno ($6.30).

The cafe also offers desserts such as bingsu (Korean shaved ice) and Belgian waffles topped with gelato. They include cookies and cream bingsu (from $14.90), which has cream-infused shaved ice studded with crushed cookies bits and tiramisu waffle ($10.90).

Those who prefer savoury bites can go for thick toasts such as the garlic and cheese honey bread ($13.90).

Unique to the Singapore outlet is a gourmet takeaway food section, which offers dishes such as soba salad, salmon mayo wrap and chicken avocado wrap (all $9.90).
