Everton Park near Outram (Outram Park Exit G) is considered one of the oldest neighbourhood in Singapore which has this quaint and laid-back vibes. (Also read: 10 NEW Outram Park Cafes)

Due to its vicinity to Keong Saik and Duxton, you do get the occasional hipster indie shops to be found here, other than the famous Ji Xiang Confectionery.

Here are 10 Everton Park cafes to be discovered, and the good thing is: they are all of short walking distance from one another.

Nylon Coffee
Blk 4 Everton Park, #01-40, Singapore 080004
Tel: +65 6220 2330
Opening Hours: 8:30am – 4pm (Wed – Fri), 9am – 4:30pm (Sat – Sun), Closed Mon, Tues

Well-Loved Cafe At Everton Park With Revamped, Spacious Look
Nylon Coffee is quietly situated within the Everton Park public housing complex, and the quaint coffee bar and roastery is known for offering quality seasonal blends.

Tiny and humble, this small-scale, single-room coffee house has won the hearts of coffee fanatics over the years.

After the revamp, the interior looks more modern and spacious, with different pockets of sitting areas, long benches and seats for coffee drinkers to chillax a little.

They work closely with coffee producers, to the extent of visiting farms and cooperatives to build better relationships with their partners and workers.

There is also an array of filter coffees options to choose from, such as Ethiopia Danse Mormora ($6.00), Guatemala Finca Vista Hermosa ($5.50), Nicaragua San Jose ($5.50), and Ethiopia Haru ($6.00) – always look out for new supplies here. Nylon Coffee (Everton Park)

[Closed] Handcraft Coffee
2 Everton Park, #01-59, Singapore 081002
Opening Hours: 8am – 4:30pm (Wed – Sun), Closed Mon, Tues

Hole-In-A-Wall Coffee Bar By Grace Espresso
Opened by the folks behind Grace Espresso at River Valley, Handcraft Coffee is a hole-in-a-wall coffee bar right next to Pickle Bakery.

With an elongated layout decked in all black, the interior is conceptualised by the same designers behind Grace Espresso, so you can expect a unique and different touch.

Using coffee beans roasted by Sweet Blossom Coffee Roasters in Malaysia known for their hot and cold 3D latte art, this brand may not be familiar to many people except for those who frequent cafes in Johor Bahru.

Serving 3 single origins coffee beans from Ethiopia and Colombia for their espresso-based drinks, the usual options can be found: Espresso ($4.50), Black ($5) and White (5oz $6, 7oz $6.50).

I had the Finca El Obraje, Narino, Colmbia for my cup of 7oz White ($6.50) which was smooth, medium-bodied with a fruity orange and kumquat taste and taste of red dates. Handcraft Coffee (Everton Park)

46 Mittsu
2 Everton Park, #01-61, Singapore 081002
Opening Hours: 8am – 5pm (Tues – Sun), Closed Mon

46 Mittsu is the newest kid in the Everton Park block, serving thick and loaded sandwiches in the charming neighbourhood.

In the quietness of the surroundings, the shop was playing hiphop-ish music with an open-concept kitchen. It reminded me a little of Two Men Bagel in terms of the mood and vibes (then I read that two of the co-founders used to be chefs in the bagel joint).

They call their Sandos “hot messes” with offerings of Firebird ($15), Piggyback ($15), Holycow ($18), Catfish ($18) and the signature B.E.C ($14) which represents bacon, egg and cheese.

While most of the Sandos around have a certain lightness somewhere and include shokupan Japanese-style bread, they are using ciabatta sourced from Pickle Bakery (which used to be located at this same shop space).

The B.E.C I had was rich and very filling – can be shared by two (unless you are very hungry). The favourite part was the thick cuts of bacon, followed by the layer of scrambled egg that would please most egg lovers. 46 Mittsu (Everton Park)

[Closed] Pickle Bakery
2 Everton Park, #01-61, Singapore 081002
Opening Hours: 8:30am – 3:30pm (Thurs – Sun), Closed Mon – Wed

Artisanal Sourdough Bakery With Tartines And Pastries
Though their name Pickle Bakery reminds me of the tongue twister – Peter Piper, you won’t be able to find pickled peppers in there but instead, two female bakers – Liz and Jas.

The humble shop serves mainly as a takeaway bakery with limited seats both indoors and outdoors.

Note that they only open 4 days a week from Thursdays to Sundays, for limited hours from 8:30am (the opening hours also change from time to time).

They prepared the food based on memories and experiences through their travels, backpacking endeavours and the people they met which is translated into the products on the shelves.

Pickle Bakery uses quality flours and heritage blends for all their bakes.

All their ingredients are prepared in-house, from sprouting to pickling, preserving and long periods of fermentation to obtain their fruits of labour.

Their menu rotates on a regular basis but focuses on Sourdough Loaves (Country $10, Seeded $11, Baguette $4) and Viennoiseries (pastries made from a yeast-leavened dough). Recommendations also include Plain Croissant ($4.50) and Kinako Snail ($5.00). Pickle Bakery (Everton Park)

The Better Half
Blk 1 Everton Park, #01-43, Singapore 081001
Tel: +65 9248 7088
Opening Hours: 10am – 4pm (Tues – Sun), Closed on Mon

Bakery Café With Korean Vibes And Delicious Cakes
Established by two passionate individuals who also happens to be each other’s better half, the café aims to serve honest and real fare to everyone who visits.

Unsure if intentional or not, but the way the bakes are placed in the shop exudes a certain Korean bakery vibe – kind of what you see in Layered 레이어드 or Cafe Highwaist.

Along with the sort-of hidden location and small space, it almost feels like you stumbled onto a hidden gem in Seoul.

All the bakes you see in The Better Half all made from scratch in-house. Even if you order a toast, the bread is made within the store and not from a supplier.

The owners recommended their Rose Raspberry Cake ($8) – essentially a rose sponge cake with raspberry cream cheese, the cake was fluffy in texture and not dry at all.

The cream cheese was more on the intense side, but paired really well with the light and mild rose sponge cake with the flavours balancing out. The Better Half (Everton Park)

Little Oasis
Blk 3 Everton Park #01-79 Singapore 080003
Opening Hours: 9:30am – 4pm (Tues – Sun), Closed Mon

Freshly Baked Cakes And Healthy Meals
The café started off as Little Wooden Table, an online home bakery, doing healthier bakes with reduced sugar, natural flavours and colouring, specializing in chiffon cakes, pound cakes, and customised birthday cakes.

Starting an online bakery before the café allowed them to refine their recipes and get more experience in the F&B industry. Opening up a space is still a leap of faith to them, knowing that it may be an experience that would cost them to lose their savings.

The cakes are baked in house, with flavours of the chiffon and pound cakes rotated throughout the week.

The signatures include the Lemon Drizzle Cake ($6.50), Earl Grey Lavender Chiffon Cake ($2.50), Banana Yoghurt Loaf (healthy bake) ($4.50), along with Banana-Oatmeal Waffles ($7 for half portion, $12 for full portion).

The Lemon Drizzle Cake ($6.50) is created using freshly squeezed lemon juice and reduced sugar, and indeed would send some thrills down your senses when the sourness hits you.

They also offer healthy all-day breakfast and lunch items which include Peanut Butter Banana Toast, Banana Oatmeal Waffles, Taco Green Bowl, Honey Mison Salmon Soba, Baked Chicken Salad, and Avocado Egg Bagel. Little Oasis (Everton Park)

Blk 1 Everton Park, #01-29, Singapore 081001
Opening Hours: 9am – 5pm (Mon – Fri), 9am – 3pm (Sat), Closed Sun

Granola-Specialty Cafe By Young Chef-Owner Who Worked In Michelin Star Restaurants
“Dearborn”, a name that rings a bell in the supper club or the private dining world by Chef Christopher Kong, has been transformed to a granola-specialty store in Everton Park.

With years of experience in the culinary world and a stellar record in Michelin starred restaurants Waku Ghin (2 Michelin Stars, Singapore) and The Nomad (1 Michelin Star, NYC), Chef Chris Kong has decided to make the transition and pivoted towards his granola business.

Decked in shades of navy green and wooden elements with accentuated by arches and curve edges in the design, the outlet here serves as their production kitchen.

Customers who pre-ordered on their website will be able to make their self-collection here.

Limited items are available on their weekday menu, namely Basic Granola Bowls ($8 – $9) and a small selection of drinks ($6 – $7).

The Granola flavours are on weekly rotational basis, with either Chocolate or Fruit options.

The former comes in Milk Chocolate, Fruit & Oat; Double Chocolate Orange; Dark Chocolate & Macadamia and Dark Chocolate & Banana.

The latter includes Mango, Passionfruit & Coconut; Cranberry Maple Pecan; Berries and Lemon & Pistachio.

2 different toppings are added to the granola: Raglan Coconut Vanilla Bean Yogurt ($9) or Chobani Greek Yogurt. Dearborn (Everton Park)

O Happi Place
Blk 5 5 Everton Park, #01-22A, Singapore 080005
Opening Hours: 12:30pm – 9pm (Tues – Thurs, Sun), 12:30pm – 10pm (Fri – Sat)

Hidden Gelato Shop With Unique Flavours
O.Happi Place has also arrived in Everton Park with a dazzling array of gelato flavours that may just “wow” you.

The clean, backlit signs in the gelato parlour that is almost reminiscent of American diners, but one thing that you will not miss are the plants – many are rare houseplants.

All of the addictive gelato served here are freshly churned. A single scoop goes for $4.50 and a double scoop is $8.20.

Some of the All-Time Favourites are Dark Chocolate, Salted Gula Melaka and Ondeh-Ondeh. These are flavours tested by time and always good, which is no different here.

Their premium selection (additional $1-$2) is where it gets even more interesting. I was caught between Kopi Bergamot Orange, Cereal Milk, and the Ju Pu flavours.

The Ju Pu gets its name from Chrysanthemum (“Ju Hua” in Mandarin) and Pu-Er. As expected, the tea fragrance was like sipping on a good cup of tea, but without the bitterness. O Happi Place (Everton Park)

Blk 5 Everton Park, #01-36, Singapore 080005
Opening Hours: 11:30am – 10pm (Mon, Wed – Sun), Closed Tues

Gelato Cafe With Interesting Flavours and Tokyo Mochi Waffles
This gelato café moved from Jalan Besar to Everton Park.

Interesting flavours include Del Monte Banana & Cacao Nibs, 70% Guanaja Dark Chocolate & Valencia Orange Peel, Colombian Cold Brew & Cookie Butter Bits, Kyoto Shiso & Yuzu Jelly, Yamanashi Peach & Lemongrass, to Sakura Smoke, Artichoke & Pear Compote.

Take note these are always rotating.

They use only fresh fruits and source for local and organic ingredients where possible in the production.

A scoop for the classic flavour goes for $5, while the premium is priced at $6. Double scoops at $8 and $10 respectively, while a Jumbo Cone is at $1.40.

Its Fresh Tokyo Mochi Waffles (additional $6.60) which is again not so commonly seen in Singapore is recommended.

Made with nippon flour and mochi, this had a delightful crisp and a slight-sticky and soft on the inside. gelatolabo (Everton Park)

Blk 4 Everton Park, #01-42, Singapore 080004
Opening Hours: 12pm – 9pm (Mon – Fri), 12pm – 8pm (Sun), Closed Sat

Affordable Japanese-Inspired Mains, Pasta and Rice Dishes
I actually remember having “Sebastian Fusion Cuisine” many years ago at a kopitiam stall, and the owners moved to open their own space called “At the Myo” (now better known as “Myo”).

Myo means “wonderful” 妙 in Japanese.

If you love the pasta and Japanese-inspired rice dishes at affordable pricing, you are probably at the right place.

Pasta choices include Tom Yum Prawn, Bacon Carbonara, Prawns & Clams in Spicy Broth, Spicy Salmon Bits Aglio Olio, to Salmon Pink Linguine. Each plate is priced from $11 – $13.

Popular rice dishes are Japanese Garlic Rice Chicken, Japanese Garlic Rice Chicken Katsu Chicken, to Grilled Salmon Thai Salmon Brown Rice.
