Coast and Company – Siglap Drive (Closed)

(Coast & Company has since ceased operations.)

The residents around Siglap must have been really lucky of the late; following Craftsmen Specialty Coffee‘s opening at the newly-opened Siglap V, here comes another new addition to the private housing estate; Coast & Company.

Technically part of the bicycle shop Coast Cycles, think Coast & Company as the cafe wing of the bicycle boutique. While the concept reminds us of Wheeler’s Yard, the interior decor feels comfortable; bright, simple and minimalist doing away with all that extra hipster bits that everyone had been copying these days.

Being affiliated to Papa Pahelta, the coffee-centric menu also contains much of other beverages, such as craft beers, juices and teas. Food menu is rather limited, featuring mainly local fusions with usual cafe grub with some input from Chef Willin Low of Wild Rocket. Muffins and croissants are also available if you are not into the mains.

(The Coast Breakfast)

Feeling horribly hungry after walking up as I had missed both buses that will bring you here, I got myself The Coast Breakfast. Your usual brunch set with a slight local touch, the well-executee scrambled eggs come mixed in with Chinese chives. It also did not appear to be too creamy and milky, achieving a well-balanced eggy taste that dominated the scramble. Served atop toast, it seemed a tad uninspiring as the toast was a wee bit too charred for my liking, and the use of regular loaves from supermarket just make it lose quite a bit of appeal. The Pork sausage was nicely spiced, juicy and flavourful with a faint taste of grill, while the Mesculun Salad was a refreshing end to the meal.

(Flat White)

As mentioned, the cafe is affiliated with Papa Pahelta. Flat White was made with their Throwback blend, achieving a creamy, lightly acidic cuppa that was all soothing.

Coast and Company’s location might not be a convenient one for some; particularly for non-Easties to head to. However, I found the trip quite worthwhile as I was able to indulge in a serene environment that brings me to relaxation with comforting food served. If you are looking for a silent spot to chill (for now), head on to Coast and Company before they get too crowded; it is definitely worth it even if you miss the bus and have to do a long trek up.
