  • Name
    Forty Hands East Coast
  • Description
    With the opening of Forty Hands in 2010 in Tiong Bahru, the beginnings of a Singaporean coffee revolution started to brew. Taking its name from the 40 hands it takes to produce a coffee from bean to cup, the cafe breathed new life into the once sleepy neighbourhood of Tiong Bahru with its delicious specialty coffee, tasty Australian style brunch, friendly & personal service and its Tau Sar Pau that some say is Singapore’s best! In May 2018 the team moved East and opened the second Forty Hands outlet in the bustling ‘hood of Joo Chiat. Alongside signature favourites, the new outlet has given Forty Hands the chance to explore its kopitiam roots and add new dishes, such as the Stinky Har Cheong Gai Waffle, to its brunch line up. Decorated in an eclectic style to reflect the quirky nature and neighbourly vibe of their locations. Each café has a custom made Synesso coffee machine, comfy corners for private brunches and large sharing tables to enjoy with friends. Come in, enjoy a brew and say hi when you're next in the neighbourhood!
