You may just walk past Double Up Coffee at Jalan Klapa, considered quite a hole-in-the-wall. That what’s almost happened to us. As there isn’t a shop name located anywhere, with just a big logo welcoming us, we almost doubt ourselves if we are at the right place.
It is located right opposite Kumoya known for its character cafes. Both cafes are the opposite ends in styles anyway – one known for cutesy cartoon-themed food; the other coffee focused.
There are two halves of Double Up Coffee. Outside, you would spot three chairs of solid colours of red, yellow and blue, along with a table repurposed from a skateboard. It suggests funkiness and young vibes. Walking in, the mood changes with light grey cement coffee counter, light wooden chairs, but most customers were sitting back facing the wall on a row of concrete seats.
Placing their focus on their coffee-related offerings, Double Up Coffee serves up specialty coffee using blends roasted by local micro-roaster and cafe, Bearded Bella, whilst also offering a small menu of non-coffee items and bakes as well. We had ourselves a Double Up ($7) and a filtered coffee ($6), which both tasted really good.
A spot that puts in the effort in serving their patrons the very best, Double Up Coffee is a space with potential; yet another one of those spots to keep a lookout for, and somewhere which we would most certainly make our visit again. We wish the folks behind Double Up Coffee all the best in what is to come!
