    It has become one of the main stay when it comes to breakfast and even quick bites among the bustle and hustle of the modern society. A number of outlets have sprawled across the sunny island, and it all started out at this outlet.

    In particular, the China Street outlet has been around for decades. I have stayed in the area previously, and vividly remember my visits to this coffeeshop in the olden days. Till today, the stall has remained pretty much the same way as it is in the past.

    Ya Kun is famous for its Kaya Toast, together with a serving of half-boiled egg and coupled with a cup of traditional coffee (not the ones from Starbucks or Coffee Bean). The good old method to drink the coffee is to pour it into the cup saucer. The older generation argues that with a larger surface area, the coffee will cool itself quicker for easier consumption. The egg is best consumed with condiments, namely pepper and black soy sauce.

    You might think this outlet is the same as its other outlets, but let me fill you in on this. Till date, this stall preserves its handmade approach in making its Kaya jam for its toast, which is different from the machine-made Kaya in the franchises. The handmade Kaya jam produces a much fragrant and smooth taste that complements the perfectly toasted bread.

    The typical old style manner of service is their shouting of orders across the shop. And notice that their plates and saucers are green, different from the red ones you see in the franchises. So don't be caught by surprise as this is different from what you experience in the other outlets.

    I've got great memories for this place.....

    I used to work nearby there when i just graduated and I simply love the whole setting. I can still remember my friends illegal parking their cars by the side of the road and having coffee with while scrambling off when MR TP come...

    Its a great place to skive at work... Oh no.... I should say hold decent meetings and catch up with your customers.

    Coffee is always great and the deco reminds us of the older singapore days... I personally love the thin crispy toast with COLD STORAGE BUTTER.. and the RUNNY Eggs... Runny eggs not runny nose.... To hell with weight watchers...... Its so worth it to splurge all the calories on a nice teabreak like this....

    Its just not easy to make such wonderful runny eggs and yummy crispy ear crunching toast... REALLY GREAT HANGOUT..

    When Boss Returns to Office you can immediately get back to office and appear like you just came out of the Loo... Beware of the tale - telling bread Crumbs....

      The Most Authentic Rebranded Ya Kun in Singapore

      I'm giving this place the highest ratings because of the following reasons:

      - You pay $1.20 for kopi-peng here when branches everywhere else charges $1.80 (You mean ice is 60 cents?)

      - You have those really authentic old tables.

      - Service is surprisingly fast despite the generally older staff.

      - It doesn't look like other Ya Kun branches.

      - I think this is the only Ka Yun that toast the bread over a real charcoal fire.

      - It is amazing to see men sitting out in the open with their long sleeve shirts and ties drinking hot coffee without breaking a sweat.

      - It is amazing to see ladies sitting out in the open with their thick war paint drinking hot coffee without breaking a sweat.

      - It is somewhat of a cool experience to be shouted at by the busy old staff running around.

      - You get to shout across the place without being rowdy.

      - On yeah, I did I mention the coffee, kaya toast and eggs seem to be always perfect?
