Visited Wanna Cuppa which seems to be one of the few places in Singapore which serves decaf coffee. The ambience was nice, and it wasn’t too busy in the afternoon so we were able to be socially distanced from other diners for the most part....Ordered decaf coffee and an ondeh ondeh cake which had a nice, moist texture and wasn’t too sweet. The coffee was a lot less dark and acidic than some other chains and cost a lot less ($4, if I remember correctly) – think the GST and service charge were absorbed. Nice little hidden gem which I would like to visit again when I am next in Singapore 😊More

I went with a friend on a Sat noon (12pm+); there were plenty of seats for small groups (<4). We were seated at the nice cushion chairs. Food was affordable and not bad (we both ordered spaghetti), though not spectacular. I like how the staff...took effort to top up water every now and then. We stayed for about 3 hours without issue.More

We were a table of 5 for breakfast. The cafe was not busy. After ordering & a long wait, only 2 plates of food were served. We waited another 10 minutes for another 2 plates of food. The last order to arrive was eggs benedict...which was yet a further 10 minute wait. This long awaited order came without the hollandaise sauce, so waiter said he would get a new plate. This took another 10 minutes and still came out again without any hollandaise sauce! Was then told, I believe, that they didn’t in fact have any hollandaise sauce. 1 order was to include a bowl of berries. When the berries did finally arrive after yet a further wait, & after all the cooked food arrived, there were some berries that were mouldy!!! There was practically no apology from the waiter & if there was a manager on duty, he/she didn’t even bother to approach the table to extend the expected apology or any type of compensation for the poor food & table service experience! The only thing good about this cafe is the coffee. Very disappointing experienceMore

It looked so lovely from the outside but this does not continue inside. The interior is kind of cosy but not my cuppa tea ;) Food is ok but nothing special. The veggie cup is a good dish as the idea itself but again nothing...amazing. Taste is quite blend.More

I like this cafe for the fact it is popular BUT not being too crowded and mainstream, perhaps due to its location. It is convenient yet hidden away from the rest of the big name eateries. Had the crab spaghetti. The pasta sauce was a...little salty for me but still tasted good overall.More

This little place about a block from the river serves the best homemade pastas, sandwiches, desserts, and a variety of teas and coffees. The owner Jeannette and the chef Jeromy are personable, talented, and remember what you like and have ordered in the past. It's...a great place to sit and visit with a friend or spend time catching up on your email when you're by yourself.More

Overall average experience. It’s a good place to chill, they manage to create a space where there’s much privacy for people to have conversations. Food wise, we ordered the cabonara & salmon mentaiko pasta. Was not impressed by the Salmon Mentaiko as I thought it...would be a full seared piece of salmon. Turn out I was wrong. The cabonara is well mixed though, flavorful and nice. We ordered drinks, lemon tea and thai milk tea. The lemon tea, is a sighz.. after taste is strong and bitter. I think have to relook at their lemon tea formula to remove the bitter after taste. After the dinner, I and my friend both had diarrhea. I had a very bad diarrhea, not sure it it’s the mentaiko. While my friend went to the toilet twice. I’ll never try to order mentaiko again.More

Yes, we definitely wanted a cafe on the Sunday of Chinese New Year! So many businesses were closed and as tourists we walked from Chinatown in search of somewhere for morning tea. Waiting to cross the road we saw “Wanna Cuppa” and it really was...like finding an oasis in the desert. My compliments to the owner on her friendly service and helpful manner. My elderly parents loved their coffee and cakes, the cleanliness and the toilets on site was a bonus and the cafe has a cool relaxed vibe. An added bonus was the kindness of the lovely owner who took the time to make phone calls enquiring where I could purchase dog outfits as gifts to take back to Australia. Her information and directions made it easy for me to complete my shopping and leave Singapore that day feeling thankful and so glad we discovered this lovely place. I can’t wait to return and thank her in person and I will tell all my friends to visit whenever they are in Singapore.More

Great food and a cool cafe. In particular their Eggs Benedict was an excellent brunch choice. Freindly, helpful, and welcoming team of people serving great fare. Well worth a visit if you're in the vacinity.

Nice ambience and jazz music. Sevice is attentive. Food is not to my liking. Quite disappointed as we came after reading the good reviews. We ordered the coffee pork chop and grilled chicken with pesto sauce. Though only two tables were occupied, the food took...a long time to be served, 15-20mins. The coffee flavour in the pork chop was too overwhelming. It took a while to 'saw' at the pork chop - tough meat. The pesto sauce with the chicken has a citrus tang, not so tasty, wanted to give up eating half way through. I would rather have the pesto at its original taste. The cappuccino ordered smelled great but taste was not fantastic either and the little cookie that came with it, had a weird taste.More
