The staff were friendly, however the iced chocolate my husband had was the most expensive and tasteless he has ever had. S$10.00++ We won't be going back!

Had breakfast here recently. The egg benedict was nice, just that we had to pay for add-on like sautéed spinach. The coffee was good, as expected from my previous visits. A big plus was the friendly staff. Halfway through, we moved indoors as it was getting a bit humid outside - the staff was very good about it.

I always return to this cafe for a latte when I'm in the Orchard Central area. It is technically well made by a barister with a rosetta. The house blend has sweet overtones that go well with milk. Life is too short for lousy coffee.

Can recommend the Fish tacos- very tasty, coffee was OK, service was slow, we had to ask for our order to be taken and our sparkling water took ages to turn up.

You'd be hard-pressed to find a decent brunch spot on Saturday along Orchard Road. Especially, one that isn't too crowded or noisy, to get some decent reading done, while injecting some caffeine into the bloodstream. Oriole was, however, able to check those two boxes. One of my favourite items on any brunch menu is the shashuka — runny eggs in... More

Came here for dinner last evening and ordered their Fish and Chips with chips changed to salad. Service was excellent with friendly staff and flexible ordering. Many times at other places folks just refuse to swop fries for salads... Orders arrived in a timely manner. Fish batter was nicely crisp but the fish itself was overdone. I paid $20 for... More

'Were Looking for the best cold brewed coffee in town. Started with this one. Oriole shakerato ( black & white both ) was classic ! The yummy Almond powder that comes with the ice cream & chocolate fudge cake was delicious ! Good place to hang out.

We had two flat whites each and a reuben sandwich to share. Coffee was decent but I suspect the beans were too fresh (not rested after being roasted). However, it was the reuben sandwich that will make me come back again to this cafe - a fairly large portion (sufficient for the average hungry person) and accompanied by a small... More

I visited here when I was in Singapore visiting my best friend and the coffee was great and the breakfast menu. This place is a funky little place that had good atmosphere as well. I had a few lattes and a big cooked breakfast. The bacon wasn't cooked to my liking, but that was a personal preference. I would go... More

Description
Founded in 2008 and pioneering Singapore's third wave coffee movement, Oriole Coffee is always about sharing and inspiring the love for coffee. The heart of a perfect Oriole experience boils down to the dedication of our roasters and baristas. From sourcing of beans and specialised roasting, to stringent cupping and barista trainings, Oriole Coffee stands by the highest standard and quality from farm to cup. Our newly renovated flagship establishment at Somerset opened its doors in January 2015, exuding warm and welcoming vibes of a city cafe. Guests can now lounge in the cafe or relax at the alfresco area with a good cup of coffee, all-day breakfast and big, hearty sandwiches. In December 2014 to January 2015, Oriole Coffee baristas had undergone an intensive training from top coffee experts in the region, Matt Perger and Ben Kaminsky. Oriole Coffee is dedicated to create that perfect specialty coffee experience, from roasting to pulling good shots. Pick up a bottle of Taisho coffee from the Grab & Go counter for a subtle and delicate cold coffee on hot, sunny days. Taisho is the well-loved cold-brewed coffee of Oriole. The name was inspired by the story of iced coffee being first introduced to coffee shop menus in Japan during the Taisho era (1912 - 1925) of modernisation. The cold brew signature comes in Black or White. Newly crafted is the Taisho M.A.D. Milk with a non-dairy nut concoction of macadamias, almonds and dates. Oriole Coffee + Bar is pleased to be the first cafe in Singapore to incorporate nut milk into coffee successfully. The health conscious will be thrilled to know more about M.A.D. Milk, cheekily named after its cold-pressed ingredients' names. This dairy-free nut milk is prepared in-house where baristas soak the nuts for at least 12 hours prior to cold pressing, followed by double sieving the milk to achieve its luscious consistency. To be enjoyed hot or cold, or as an add-on to hot coffees. Our newly crafted food menu now carries a wider repertoire of breakfast items, hearty sandwiches and small plates, accompanied by Oriole's well-loved classics.
