Great food, great ambience, great staff - PERFECT. Tucked away from the bustle of the city life, this is a nice place to relax, chill and chit-chat with you friends over a cup of coffee. The Coffee Nations not only serve many different kind of coffees, finger food, sandwiches and sauages are also available. Good food, nice place, what more is there to say? Go there and experience it yourself.

    Decided to check out this place after seeing so many positive reviews.

    I was there with 2 of my friends for a makan and chill-out session and this place didnt dissapoint. Location-wise : It was very near to Bugis Junction and easy to get there. When we reached there at about 8pm, the place was quiet with only 1 or 2 other customers.

    We took the "floor seats" on the upper level and the place was cozy & comfy. Perhaps it was a Wed night with not many customers, the whole place was quiet and peaceful and made us really felt at ease and we can chat to our hearts and laugh out loud without having to worry about people staring at us. There was also games, magazines and nice music to keep you entertained. We played scrabble and had lotsa fun there! Service was also good and the staff there leaves you alone most of the time, which is perfect when you just wanted to chit chat with your pals without having to worry that you must exit immediately after finishing your meal like some other cafes/restaurants.

    Food-wise, my friends and I tried the 3 Chef Recommended main courses : Honey Citrus Chicken, Tangy BBQ Chicken and Fish & Chips. I personally like the Honey chicken for it's crisp and sweetness. Tangy BBQ Chix was a little too "wet" for my liking and the F&C was a bit bland and could do better with a little more flavour. We also had the Choc Lava Cake with vanilla ice-cream and Apple crumble with vanilla ice-cream. Like candice mentioned in the first review, Lava cake will do better if it's warmer and "oozier", it was a little hard and sweet for my liking. Apple crumble was not too bad, but I m not a fan of Apple Crumble but my friend totally loves it.

    Drinks-wise, we ordered the Choconana Frappe, Cappucino Borgia Milkshake and pot of camomile tea. My Frappe was a fine, but perhaps I was having too much chocolate that night, I was having a hard time digesting all of the chocolate.

    Total bill came up to $83.15, $27 each for the 3 pax of us. And we sat there till their closing at about 11.30pm. Definitely a great place to check out ! They also offer free WiFi and also a great place for organization of parties and events!

    I discovered this quaint little coffee joint along Bali lane only because my friend introduced it to me. I never knew it existed, since it's often overshadowed by Blue Jazz and Masquerade in that row...

    But I'm glad I discovered it because it's an awesome place to chill out! There are seats upstairs as well, and there are sofas as well as this platform area with lots of cushions on the floor where you can just lounge around or play games they provide there (spotted boggle and scrabble among the pile...)

    We went there after dinner so there was no space for food, but plenty for drinks and dessert. Bring on the chocolate lava cake with vanilla ice cream! Granted, it wasn't the best I've ever tasted, but it's pretty decent and well-presented at $7.50. Could be warmer and a little more oozy though.

    The drinks there are comparable with TCC and Coffee Club. My friends order the Hazelnut Latte and some other latte I can't remember and they loved it. But they thought the smoothies were a little too sour for their liking. I had a sinfully rich hot chocolate for $5, which I thought was pretty decent.

    The service is decent, ambiance and music is great and drinks are nice. Would definitely patronise this place again!

      Was shopping at the Haji Lane in the afternoon and the weather was very hot. But the weather suddenly turned cloudy and before you know it, it was already pouring heavily. Rushed off to the nearest shelter with my friends and never know where we are heading to. Was walking around within the corridor and chanced upon The coffee Nations.

      Well as we were waiting for the rain to stop, we went into the cafe to take a seat at their platform seat. Each of us ordered a drink. The selection of drinks are many. We were surprised with the drink as they are very good, and not as pricey as those from TCC. I drank a mexican frappe, my 2 friends ordered a coffee with honey and peach liquor (not underage... haha... ) and a weird name I could not remember and a pot of tea.

      Seat there until their closing as we were having a great time chatting and the music was good... quite embarrassing as we only ordered a drink each.
