This coffee joint is super cozy and serves amazing coffee and delicious burgers. The vibe is really cool and urban with sleek slate counters, bare concrete floors, and walls covered in subway tiles, all lit up by warm brass lamps. It's got a laid-back, Japanese-style coolness that attracts a hip crowd. And their cold brews are killer - they're a hit, especially since this place was the first to bring cold brew coffee to Singapore. It's the kind of spot that coffee fans and stylish folks love to hang out in.

Hangar66 Cafe in the Seletar Aerospace district is where coffee and aviation come together. The café is in an actual plane hangar, so you can enjoy your coffee while watching planes take off and land on the runway. The decoration is all about aviation too, with airplane parts used to make the tables and a helicopter adding to the vibe. The menu offers some really tasty Western dishes that are nothing like the usual airline food. And if you want some extra VIP treatment, there's the WOA Aviator’s Lounge where you can enjoy a private view of Seletar Airport and the Singapore skyline. This is a must-visit spot for anyone wanting an aviation dining experience!

For those who missed their Hogwarts letter, no worries! Discover the magic at Platform 1094, Singapore's first magic-themed cafe, not officially linked to Harry Potter but full of tributes to the wizarding world. Picture yourself under a chandelier like The Great Hall, surrounded by Harry Potter memorabilia. Kickstart your day with the Giant's Breakfast, a massive platter of eggs, bacon, sausages, and more, or sip on whimsical potions, like the non-alcoholic Mrs Lich's butterscotch ale or the fiery, boozy Mr Lich's flaming brew, a secret concoction for the brave.
