For an unforgettable Singaporean breakfast, there’s nothing quite like kaya toast, soft-boiled eggs and coffee. And few do it better – or have done it better for almost 80 years – than Chin Mee Chin. This institutional Hainanese coffeeshop in Katong serves up not just the fluffiest charcoal-toasted kaya buns in town, it also draws the crowds with its rich sense of nostalgia – from its antiquated marble-topped tables to its green and white mosaic floor tiles. While you’re there, indulge in the fluffy raisin buns, custard puffs, cream horns, sugar swiss rolls, and sugee cake too, with a hot cup of rich, dark kopi-o.
