1. FiftyFive Coffee Bar
This duo-concept coffee bar is one for all you coffee lovers out there.

The 2-storey space boasts a warm wood-inspired theme with tasteful and artful touches.
As part of the café’s opening, they’re also featuring a multi-sensory art installation called “Forest Bathing @ Fifty Five” with lush Japanese zen garden-inspired vibes that makes the space look more like an art gallery. FiftyFive currently serves in-house bakes and specialty coffee and tea drinks like Manuka Honey Miso Honey ($7.50), Strawberry Pipagao Latte (from $7.50), Chardonnay Tea (from $5.50), Sangria Punch Tea (from $5.50) and more.
