7 Kickstart – Coffee & Grill: Great coffee, amazing location!

Came across a, well-brand-new-yet-not-quite, café at Singapore Arts Museum, Waterloo Street near Bras Basah. Name of the Coffee Shop? “7-Kickstart – Coffee & Grill”. Originally called 7-Kickstart BREWiches, the café was previously located at 50 Armenian Place. It recently moved to the picturesque SAM, and well I am not complaining.

The Ambiance:

I can happily say, I have added 7-Kickstart to the ever growing list of my favourite café’s in Singapore.

Simply decorated, the place has a homey feel about it. It has two types of seating.

The indoor seating comprises of spaciously spread out tables, small and large, the entire ambience dominated by the colourful self-service counter!

In another corner, stands a prominent coffee blender. The white walls complement the entire SAM ambience.

The outdoor seating is another talking point.

The tables are laid out in the patio and the SAM gallery, overlooking the beautiful fountains and the picturesque SAM architecture.

Then they have the really cute personal touches around.

Look at how they serve water. You can measure your water in take!

The Coffee:

Their coffee is from all over the place. The display cabinets show coffee beans from South Africa – Kenya, Guatemala, to South America – Brazil, Panama to all the way to Asia – Papa New Guinea, Sumatra they have it all. And they love to blend their coffees.

[1] Piccolo Latte: I opted for a piccolo latte and I well it was great. Refreshing, especially on a cloudy day. (Piccolo literally translated as Small in Italian is a mini Latte… slightly stronger the usual Latte)

[2] Expresso: For those enjoying the strong, sharp acidic flavour of a black, 7-Kickstart’s Expresso really does kickstart your batteries. Try this one when in dire need of that caffeine kick!

Overall, their coffees met up to the standards I have so gotten used to, around the island.

The Food:

Hawaiian Chicken @ 7 Kickstart - Coffee & Grill

[1] Hawaiian Chicken:  I have heard a lot about their sandwiches, but we decided to try their main dishes. The Hawaiian chicken was amazing. A large chunck of chicken was nicely shallow fried, and then baked with chicken and a slice of pineapple. The dish was served with a generous portion of French fries. It was a nicely prepared dish, enough for a serving.

Spicy Chicken @ 7 Kickstart - Coffee & Grill

[2] Spicy Chicken: The spicy chicken, just like the Hawaiian chicken was shallow fried and baked, served with a spicy sauce and sautéed tomatoes… again served with a generous portion of French fries. Perfect taste for tangy, spicy taste.

How much will it cost me: The food is in the range of S$ 12 to S$ 25 per dish, depending upon what you try and their coffees around S$ 4 to S$ 8.  

The Verdict: I loved the place for its coffee, its ambience and its food. I liked the place. It’s a great place to sit and read, study or simply have a meal or simple share a coffee and a dessert. Grab a seat into the SAM patio, especially on a cloudy day and enjoy the fountains, and the serene ambience of the SAM. They have coffee brews from across the world and they love to blend it… Finally, try their limited menu… it’s great! Maybe not so much for the veggies… but chicken and beef lovers can expect a nice meal! My verdict, the place deserves a visit! Thumbs up indeed!
