Situated right beside Curious Palette along Prinsep Street, the new Communal Coffee is a café that operates during the day.
It occupies the same space as Stage Music Bar, which operates as a bar at night.
You would have probably visited this area in the past for either Minds Café for board game nights or Strictly Pancakes, which unfortunately closed down for good.
There may be slight confusion as there are several cafes with similar names, from Community Coffee (Far East Plaza), The Communal Place (Joo Chiat), and The Communal (Jalan Besar).
Communal Coffee was inspired by the concept of communal living in the city. They boast coffee certified by the Specialty Coffee Association and alcohol infused desserts.
The place has both indoor and outdoor seating, suitable for casual brunches and small group get-togethers.
Since Communal Coffee shares a space with Stage Music Bar, the interior is relatively dark and you definitely get bar vibes from this place.
