Do not be misled by the name of this establishment - Chye Seng Huat Hardware is the successive coffee bar from the guys behind Papa Palheta and Loysel's Toy. This flagship store features a roastery, an island coffee bar, a coffee school and a private coffee tasting room. See what foodies like this place for

Should have heeded the commenters here who did not recommend this place.
 
Perhaps the baristas the day I visited (Saturday 23 August morning) were inexperienced or too busy; but the coffee my friend and I got were less than subpar: they were downright atrocious.
 
She got a daily brew of the Dutra Jatoba variety; which tasted bland at the first sip, then produced a disturbing sour aftertaste. According to this website, (http://www.papapalheta.com/coffee/Dutra-Jatoba-42) the taste notes to look out...

Was at the cafe on a Saturday afternoon. Ordered the breakfast. Food came fast but it was cold and obviously cooked before hand. The ham is very saltish and scrambled egg is very cold and bland.
