Branded as “a curation of the best cafes around the world,” Cafe Culture is bringing in some of the most well-known names on the coffee, brunch, and pastry circuit to Singapore for a four-day festival in August. Held at the Sands Expo and Convention Centre in Marina Bay Sands, the event aims to gather all the cafe-hoppers in the country to one spot with its showcase of eateries from across the globe.
Divided into three categories, Brew focuses on coffee and tea concepts, Brunch highlights much-loved cafes that never fail to attract the crowds, and the Bakes & Cakes section shines a spotlight on pastry and dessert joints.
You may have heard of Melbourne’s Lune Croissanterie, the bakers behind the famous croissant that The New York Times claimed “may be the finest you will find anywhere in the world.” Or perhaps you’ve been to Bali and had brunch at the Aussie-style Sisterfields in Seminyak. Or maybe you’ve been told good things about Copenhagen’s Coffee Collective, the renowned cafe and micro roastery in Denmark.
Well, they’re all on the line-up, which also includes coffee and tea from the likes of St. Ali from Melbourne, Japan’s Switch Coffee Tokyo, Roots from Bangkok, and Shanghai’s Pushers, along with Melbourne’s Auction Rooms and Bangkok’s Roast doling out the brunch plates and Koi Dessert Bar from Sydney serving its array of cakes.
A one-day pass to the event will set you back $45 if you get the early bird ones, or $55 for online purchases and $65 for at-the-door tickets. These all come with $42 worth of F&B vouchers, so it won’t burn too big of a hole in your pocket. But if you’re planning on making return trips, the four-day passes start from $55 and come with the same amount of vouchers.
More details will be released closer to the date, so check back for updates.
Cafe Culture is on from Aug 29-Sept 1, 10:30am-6pm at L1, Hall C, Sands Expo and Convention Centre, Marina Bay Sands.
One-day pass $45-$65; four-day pass $55-$75.
