Yellow Cup Coffee follows the series of Third Wave Coffee Movement cafes that have opened in Singapore of the late, which aims to gather coffee enthusiasts together.
According to the store manager, the reason behind the name was the definition of “yellow” on Wikipedia, which was the colour of gold. The owners wanted to serve the gold standard of coffee to their patrons.
The only mains for the day were Croissant Scandinavian and Brioche Scandinavian. Both comes with Smoked Salmon. The Brioche Scandinavian came with vegetables in between, as well as Dijon Mustard spread. The smoked salmon was fresh, though the Brioche although toasted was rather soft and fluffy rather than crisp on the top. People whom dislike mustard should find the Dijon Mustard spread acceptable, for it was very mild in numbness. Usually garden salad would be served but due to Chinese New Year where suppliers are not open, it was replaced by Garlic Butter with cucumbers, which was pretty unique and flavourful.
The Croissant Scandinavian was largely similar, less the Dijon Mustard and replacing the Brioche with a Croissant. The Croissant was fluffy and flaky, and seemed less sickening to eat as it was not overly buttery.
Having seen much of their coffee, we could not miss ordering a Cappuccino and a Flat White. The blend used that day was a mix from Tasmania, Ethiopia and Nicaragua, which is said to be bright and tangy. We loved how smooth the coffee was; definitely the silkiest we ever had.
The food was somehow unmemorable, and definitely needs some fine-tuning to enhance on taste. Coffee was however impressive. Service was definitely sincere, and the owners are very willing to interact with patrons and gather feedback when they are available. Plans are big in the future, so do check them out once they kick into full speed. A cafe with a good vibe, this is a place that not only focuses on food but the human interactions as well. Let’s wish them success on the days to come!
