If you are in Siglap getting some shopping done at Cold Storage or hair and nails at one of the many boutique salons, it defiantly would be worth your time to take a stop in at Craftsmen - speciality coffee shop.
Craftsmen are a mainstay on the east coast with an industrial look and feel set against a big range of artisanal beverages, jams and preserves.
Running a huge blood red, La Marzocco Strada, this machine, true to the ethos of the store is certainly the centrepiece and the feature to which the cafe operates. A range of grinders are on standby, most likely to drop a unique blend or perhaps a single origin, this store screams WE LOVE COFFEE!
The ambience of the store is pleasant. Music is on however, playing at a level which is soft enough to have a conversation - perhaps to discuss the news of the day on a quiet weekend, or the days events post work when you are getting a small top up from the grocer.
The food is also delightful. Fresh pastries are ready to go in the cabinet or if you want you can settle in for something more substantial Craftsmen will deal to the weekend hunger.
