Since the opening of the first PS.Cafe in Singapore back in 1999, the PS.Cafe brand has expanded to now include four branches, plus brand offshoots PS.Cafe Petit, and the Anglo-Chinese concept of the Chopsuey Cafes. The branch of PS.Cafe located at the conservation-listed Ann Siang Hill enclave is set within a restored 3-level shophouse with the city skyline views filtered through a garden setting. Styled as a classic European cafe and bar, PS.Cafe serves a contemporary interpretation of European cafe and grill fare with signature dishes elevated with pan-Asian influences. With its convenient location on the fringe of the CBD, the stylish twin bars of PS.Cafe are well-patronised by local city executive and international visitors – classic cocktails with a local twist and an impressive collection of artisan gins headline the beverages. Open daily, PS.Cafe serves lunch (and weekend brunches), afternoon tea, and dinner, with a bar bites menu served at the bars.
Design PS.Cafes embrace a casual-chic dining aesthetic that draws inspiration from the sophisticated yet relaxed cafes of Europe, melded with colonial-era influences. Set across three levels, the fastidiously decorated interior features original architectural elements that complement plush black leather banquettes and classic cafe furnishings. At the entrance level, a handsome timber bar welcomes guests, while on the second level the spacious dining room epitomises elegant cafe dining. At the upper attic level, a lounge section offers both comfortable dining settings and a vibrant bar – with an outdoor terrace overlooking the city skyline.
Cuisine Referencing the casual dining experiences of a European cafe, the approachable menus at PS.Cafe feature familiar cafe fare – with the PS signatures including consummate renditions of classic dishes, as well as contemporary Asian-influenced creations. Separate Lunch, Brunch and Dinner menus offer selections of salads, soups and pastas, sandwiches and burgers, plus grilled meats and seafood. And the PS home-style desserts are a standout attraction at the cafes.
Cocktails At the bars, PS signature cocktails feature proficiently crafted reinterpretations of classics – while an impressive assemblage of craft and premium gins, matched with premium tonic waters – create an intriguing list of Gin & Tonics. The regular Truffle Thursday promotion features complimentary truffled-inflected bar bites, well-priced Veuve Clicquot Champagne, and with a house DJ adding to the vibe.
PS.Cafe at Ann Siang Hill Park opens daily – with lunch served between 11:30m and 4pm, and dinner service from 6:30pm, while the bars open from 5pm. Table bookings are advised for dinner and weekend brunches.
