Great coffee is an out of the way place. Outside seating is not as comfortable as inside but your not there long anyway. Inside with a/c is much better. Service was quick, courteous and efficient. Toilet is up stairs via and old style spiral stair...case. Toilets were clean as expected in Singapore. There is an alternative toilet but it is on the opposite side of the building at ground level.More

This is the third time I have visited the Glasshouse, and most have had great experiences, but do agree that the service could be brought up by a notch or two. Despite the menu being rather compact and easy to explain, questions to the servers...for recommendations drew blanks, rather than explanations that could perhaps help narrow down our choices to aid us in our ordering process. The overall vibe of the place just feels rather stand-offish. Notwithstanding, the matcha latte and iced latte ordered were on point, so was the portion of tater tots we ordered.More

Warm and friendly staff. We ordered the Truffle Tater Tots $9, Peach Milllefeuille $12 and hot white coffee $5.50. The white coffee was smooth and aromatic. I like the natural deco. Kitchen closes at 5.30pm. After which, the cafe offered a smaller menu.

The cafe has many reviews, so i went with my cousins during our hols. Nice and comfortable place. But we were turned down by the behaviour of the manger. Our food came and we started eating. Halfway through, we felt uncomfortable. This person keeps lingering...at our table with his hawk eyes eyeing at us. THE MANGER. It makes us felt uncomfortable. We quickly finished our food and went to the counter to pay. The manager served us and told us our payment. We took out our cash and guess what, the manager says, payment by card only. Huh ??? Ok, we took out our debit card and guess what again, the manager says, payment only by credit card. Huh, what ?? This is ridiculous ! Dont accept cash or debit card. Oh, the manager wants to play 'such games', luckily, we do have credit cards. We paid and went off. You can see the manager face went black and annoyed. To the manager whom we forgotten to jot down yoir name, you are so much older than us but acting so childish and discriminating your customer. Trying to belittle us and maybe, throw a scene at the cafe ?! Are you watching too many kdrama and getting influenced by the plot, lol... Grow up, please, you are disgracing not yourself but the cafe and the service line. Kindly be more matured. We are living in Singapore, a fine city. Oh well, this is the first and last time we will be stepping into this cafe, we wont even recommend our friends and family to this place.More

I came back here for another great cappuccino in Feb 2020 with a friend after lunch nearby. Always very happy with the coffee at this place, but sometimes it can be tricky to find a table. Hoping to visit again once the lockdown has ended.

Came back here in Dec 2019 for more coffee after lunch in the vicinity. They just have a standard white coffee offering, but no complaints. Always a good vibe in this place but sometimes can get quite crowded.

If the winning brew of good coffee, clean minimalist ambience enveloped by lush greenery and glass house all appeal to you, Glasshouse will Chijme (pardon the pun) with you. Tucked in a quiet lane on the Chijmes compound, along a stretch of hipster-minimalist cafes and...a bar, this is a good sunlit-refuge from the other commercial joints to get some quality and green ‘me' time.More

We came here for brunch after a recommendation and wasn’t disappointed. Sliced Avocado on toast topped with feta and dukkah and the granola with fruit and yoghurt were amazing. Great coffee too.
