This lovely eatery was on the short walk from the hotel to work and a colleague and I stopped there for breakfast. It is a relaxed, fast joint and the toast is surprisingly great. I had the kaya toast (coconut spread) and my colleague had...More

Comforting toast set with half boiled eggs. I like their silky barley drink. I find the milo too sweet. A little pricy.

Service is loud and rude. They never seem to be able to consistently get their soft boil eggs to the right texture, Sometimes over cooked, sometimes undercooked. Bread sliced very unevenly

Small, efficient, and authentic place for kaya toast. My first time here, the owner noticed I didn't know what I was doing and very kindly showed me the local way - dash of soy sauce and white pepper!

This is a unique old, traditional cafe in Singapore. It's very near China Town but ts closerr to the cbd area. It's a good visit if you are going to check out the raffles place area

Kaya Toast is one of the signature dishes in Singapore culture. It is known to be smooth and silk-like but still taste amazing. Ya Kun Kaya Toast was an easy establishment to find. Service was very fast, but staff could be a little more friendly.

This is the most signature toast & cafe shop in Singapore. This one is the existing oldest & not far from China town station. Toast is crispy & flavor is great. Its uniqueness is from the flavor combination of kaya, butter and cafe/tea. We found...More
