Fans of the popular Coexist Coffee Co. can rejoice at their latest outlet in the East! Coexist Coffee Co. Paya Lebar officially opens on March 1, 2022so you don’t have to travel to their OG branch in Hillview for your cup of coffee.

Coexist Coffee Co. first gained traction when it opened in a nondescript industrial building to the west, with striking red and white interiors that screamed IG-worthy. Subsequently, the local brand launched its second branch in a more central location along Keong Saik Road.

This third point of sale, located in the Lifelong Learning Instituteis a five minute walk from Paya Lebar MRT Stationmaking it easier for Easties to get their brunch and coffee fix.

The massive two-story cafe sees moody monochromatic interiors offset by warm, woody elements for a chic and cozy vibe. As this outlet is the largest to date, there are plenty of spaces available. Hang on to a counter seat or go up to the second floor for more privacy.

Choose from an extensive coffee menu or opt for a tasting flight if you’re feeling adventurous. the Trinity Brew ($18++) offers you two iced filter coffees, while the Barista breakfast ($8) comes with a white and two shots of espresso on the side.

Food-wise, you can expect a hearty brunch, sandwiches, entrees, and pasta plates with a twist. Enter the Ebiko Linguine ($24++)a pasta dish with heady notes of prawns, topped with grilled prawns and prawn roe.
