Or is that called the Clifford Bridge? Check out this teeny weeny little cafe on a bridge! Even they proclaim themselves to possibly be the smallest cafe in the CBD! Itâ€™s as hole in the wall as you can get!
This is one end of itâ€¦
And this is the other end!
They sell cakes and muffins as well, and scrambled egg croissant and Bull Go Giâ€¦
I tried out their coffee at my Pizza Friendâ€™s recommendation. Itâ€™s $5.50 for a latte. Expensive by my terms, and especially since the cup isnâ€™t that big. But I guess this is the Raffles Place price, cuz Jewel Coffee at 1 Shenton Way charges similar prices. The coffee tastes good, and is quite strong. We had to add the entire stick of sugar in. Normally when I have latte, I donâ€™t have to use up the entire sugar packet. I think my father would like this as he loves a good strong coffee, but too bad, we all donâ€™t work in the CBD, at least not for now 😉 . I really love all these little cafes and eateries in Shenton Way. I think I might have mentioned this like a hundred times already.
Even at 4.30pm, the staff were pretty busy fixing up coffees, mostly for takeaways since seating is extremely limited at Coffee Smith. Thereâ€™s only 3 or 4 high tables in there. Wasnâ€™t a problem for us but Iâ€™m sure during lunch time, itâ€™d be a headache. Most of the customers when we were there were Caucasians. Guess the locals wouldnâ€™t be able to afford a $5.50 cuppa everyday.
Some other shops located on the link bridge between Fullerton Bay Hotel (old Clifford Pier) and Hitachi Towers/Chevron House/Change Alley. The bus stop outside the Fullerton Bay Hotel is also functioning now. It seemed to be out of service for the last year or so.
