The Providore

Unlike its other outlets in Raffles Place and Mandarin Gallery, The Providore’s flagship store at Downtown isn’t just a quaint cafe to grab a quick lunch bite, but it’s also a contemporary retail space featuring a selection of wines, craft beers, and quality produce.

From the presentation to the sweet and creamy taste, choco lovers will absolutely love their selection of chocolate drinks here. In the same way that their regular coffee is served, the Hot Chocolate (S$6.50) is presented with an intricate latte art design as well as a stick of chocolate powder on the side for added sweetness.

If you wish to bring home the taste of The Providore’s hot chocolate with you, they have a variety of chocolate powders (from S$9.50) that you can purchase at the store itself.

The Providore, 6A Shenton Way, OUE Downtown Gallery, B1-07. Dine-in and delivery are available.

Regular Opening Hours

Monday – Friday: 8:00am – 10:30pm

Saturday: 9:00am – 9:00pm

Sunday: 9:00am – 6:00pm


Dapper Coffee

Adding on to the list of Amoy Street gems is Dapper Coffee. The entrance of this cafe might seem slightly sketchy with the dodgy steps and dim lighting, but this place is a haven for all sorts of drinks—from coffee to cocktails.

While their coffee roasts are the main stars of the show here, their chocolate drinks are also worth mentioning.

The Hot Chocolate (S$7) may be on the pricier side, but its velvety taste and creamy texture will make it worth the splurge. If you’re looking for something a little more bitter, they even have a Bitter Cocoa (S$7) option that’s kind of like The Hot Chocolate’s evil older sister—in a good way!

Dapper Coffee, 73 Amoy Street, Second Floor. Dine-in and delivery are available.

Regular Opening Hours

Monday – Friday: 8:00am – 5:00pm


6Oz Espresso Bar

If you work around Raffles Place or Shenton Way and just need to have that chocolatey fix, 6Oz Espresso Bar is your go-to.

Depending on what you’re looking for, you can choose between the Hot Chocolate (S$6.50) or an Iced Chocolate (S$7) for those days where it’s scorching hot outside.

If you want to grab a quick bite along with that, try their Banana Chia Seed Peanut Butter Toast (S$5.50), which adds a superfood twist to a classic peanut butter toastie, or the classic Avocado Toast (S$5.60) for the perfect brekkie set.

6Oz Espresso Bar, 30 Raffles Place, Change Alley Mall, #01-10. Dine-in and delivery are available.

Regular Opening Hours

Monday – Friday: 7:00am – 5:30pm

In terms of aesthetics and flavour, Alchemist hits all the marks and is undoubtedly one of the best in Singapore’s coffee scene. With two locations conveniently located along Raffles Quay and Anson Road, CBD dwellers are probably already familiar with what Alchemist has to offer.

While their coffee is clearly one of their highlights, the hot chocolate (S$5) is actually a crowd favourite among regulars. Even with the velvet smooth texture of the cream, the thick chocolate flavour still stands out and leaves a comforting aftertaste as well.

Some have even dubbed it as a brownie in drink form!

Alchemist, 10 Anson Road, #01-34, International Plaza. Dine-in and delivery are available.

Regular Opening Hours

Monday – Friday: 8:00am – 5:00pm


Baristart Coffee

Just two years ago, the famous Hokkaido cafe Baristart Coffee arrived in Singapore and made waves in the cafe scene almost instantly. The reason for that? Their signature Hokkaido milk that is used in all of their beverages, including the Chocolate Glace Drink (S$7.50) available as a hot or iced beverage.

Unlike your typical chocolate drinks, Hokkaido milk is considered a higher quality milk that contains no added nutrients, which can make anything and everything taste even more smooth and rich.

This concept drinks bar is known to fill up rather quickly, so make sure to drop by during off-peak periods!

Baristart Coffee, 65 Tras Street. Dine-in and delivery are available.
