Entering the Glasshouse, you are immediately taken by the intelligent use and selection of furniture pieces and indoor plants. It is indeed beautiful, managing to have a thematic concept without being at all gimmicky. The beverages were excellent. As a multi-roaster concept, they are able to serve coffees from some of Singapore’s finest roasters such as Nylon and Common Man Coffee Roasters. Have two or three espressos, or maybe a longer drink that you can enjoy with a book and the beautiful, natural sunlight streaming in and reflecting off of the clean wooden floorboards.
Immediately after walking into this cafe, at the Chijmes complex in Singapore, its beauty strikes you as Instagram worthy. (It’s 2019 after all, we all think this way now.) The natural light that floods through their large windows speaks to the coffee being served, which also has a bright and fruity flavor. All of it combines to lighten your mood. Their multi-roaster concept, where they source coffee from different roasters across the country, frees up their focus, allowing the team to focus on serving high quality food and drinks. Their food is mostly snacks that pair with coffee, like open face toasts and pastries. And they offer dairy alternatives like oat milk, which are important to lactose intolerant folks and vegans alike. All in all, Glasshouse gives you a holistic experience and is a great place to start your day right.
