IMAGINE GENTLY SIPPING a cup of hot coffee, snacking on some tasty home-style fare while being slowly carried away by framed pieces of visual art. This simple playful thought drove two ordinary men with backgrounds in design and the burning passion for coffee and food to create CAD Café. Finding home in a cosy corner of Haji Lane, CAD Café conciliates the concepts of coffee, art and design all in one small coffee house.

 

Addressing minimalism as its main concern, the swinging red doors and the wooden furnishes are all delicate creations made from scratch. Their designer identities transformed the minimal space they had with a coat of quaintness and a touch of vintage. The walls of its interior are panned with pieces of international and local street art, acting as a hopeful channel of creativity with the aim to inspire aspiring artists and dreamers.

 
 

When asked about the choice of their showcases, owner of CAD Café, Chad, expressed that the art pieces are changed on a monthly basis. In some weeks, designated themes are followed—a special featured artist, or a specific genre of visual art, mainly to inculcate the awareness about the diminishing local arts scene.

The local arts scene is small and interesting, and we hope we can do our part to add on it.

With its first cup of coffee brewed just four months ago, the receptiveness has been considerably good, garnering its well-deserved thumbs-up and nodding heads. Its popularity is creditable to not only its unique concept, but also the brave menu that it offers.

For first-timers, I would recommend the CAD Florentine Brunch, a perfect combination of hot toast topped with poached eggs and a generous serving of smoked salmon and spinach. If you want a hearty breakfast, topping the breakfast menu would be the café’s scrambled eggs with toast. Best coupled with a cup of Latte Noisette, it is definitely a serving of good food at an affordable price.

 

Food aside, Chad also pins hopes on expanding the café beyond the primary concept of art to music, both owners also being DJs and music enthusiasts. He jokes that they might even hold their own Laneway Festival at their back alley. 

 

The CAD Café has so wittingly conflated good ambience, coffee and art in one place that it is difficult to refute its goodness. I would say it is the perfect place to hangout during lazy evenings or rainy Sundays, to catch up with a friend or for when you feel like sipping a cup of coffee, just lazing the day away. For all the visual art lovers out there, aspiring artists or dreamers, the CAD Café would invaluably come across as a place not to be missed.
