Coast and Company

Coast and Company 1 - Doors

One Sunday morning, I took a walk down Siglap Drive to visit Coast and Company. An assortment of three, it’s a cafe, a bicycle workshop and an experience store, under one roof.

Coast and Company 25 - Bicycles outside

Coast and Company 3 - Side Entrance

Coast and Company 2 - Coast Cycles

This new cafe in the east is part of the Papa Palheta group, so cafe hoppers who have been to Chye Seng Huat Hardware Coffee (a feature on that cafe will come later) will quickly notice the similarities, down to the modern and clean interior design. Even the crew aprons are similar.

Coast and Company 4 - Interior

The cafe isn’t large, so there’s definitely going to be some wait during peak hours. Going there early would be wise, and also check with the staff if tables are already reserved.

Coast and Company 5 - Barista

You’re likely to spot cyclists in this little cafe, coming here for meals and coffee, with their bikes lined up neatly outside.

Coast and Company 6 - Brewing

The layout of the venue isn’t as exciting as Chye Seng Huat Hardware Coffee – if you get a seat in the main area, you’ll catch the baristas at work or look into the street outside. Otherwise, one solitary table at the corner offers a view of the workshop and the retail space.

Coast and Company 7 - Coffee Cups

Don’t these cups look familiar?

Coast and Company 8 - Kitchen

Overall, I appreciate the minimalist touch and subtly uneven textures in this cafe. It’s a very laid-back environment.

Coast and Company 9 - Special Brews

Coast and Company 10 - Papa Palheta blends

Coast and Company 11 - Tea Cakes and Muffins

Some tea cakes and muffins, to go with the drinks.

Coast and Company 12 - Food Menu

I met up with two good friends at the cafe and we shared two mains. The menu, created by Willin Low of Wild Rocket, is a blend of local and western flavours.

Coast and Company 14 - Coast Breakfast

Coast Breakfast ($15). A decent comfort breakfast, but just typical eggs, toast and sausage. Serving size is less daunting than the Huat Breakfast at CCSH Coffee (although that one is a really deal if you have a big appetite).

Coast and Company 15 - Breakfast Spread / Sour Cream Cheese Toast

Sour Cream Cheese Toast ($8). Thick and crispy toast topped with generous amounts of cream cheese. With an indulgent glaze of honey (and some honeycomb bits) all over, this is of course very sinful, but we didn’t care. Probably going to order it again next time.

Coast and Company 13 - Latte in light

The rest of the menu:

Beef Rendang Hotdog ($14) – Hotdog with pork sausage and beef rendang, served with chips.
Chapalang Salad ($15) – Mesclun salad with bak kwa, sakura ebi and goma dressing.
Almond Peanut Butter Toast ($7) – Brioche toast with Almond-peanut butter, honey and almonds flakes all over.
Green Curry Stew ($15) – Chicken drumstick, potatoes and carrot in green curry, served with a slice of baguette.

Head on to Foodiepink for a foodie’s take on the food!

Coast and Company 16 - Coast Cycles display

A small retail space can be found towards the back of the cafe, selling some bags, T-shirts and of course, there are some bicycles on display.

Coast and Company 18 - Merchandise 2

Coast and Company 19 - Bicycle

Coast and Company 20 - Workshop

The Coast Cycle Workshop at the back. The experience store can be found on the second floor (entrance at the front).

And just a few steps away: The restrooms… which obviously had some sort of concept.

Coast and Company 21 - Washrooms

Coast and Company 22 - Washroom Lights

Coast and Company 23 - Washroom Basin

While the cafe itself is a nice spot for photos, the lane just outside is also rather picturesque.

Coast and Company 24 - The gate next door

Coast and Company 26 - Along Siglap Drive

If you’re taking a bus to Siglap Drive, Service 32 (from Bedok) and 42 (from Kembangan) will stop nearby Siglap Drive. Or you can take a 15 minute stroll from Kembangan MRT. Walk until you see this bikes parked neatly and a store display for the coastliner. Then you’ll be at the right place.
