Forty Hands Team .jpeg

How Forty Hands Started

Forty Hands emerged in October 2010 from a deep desire to create a neighbourhood café rooted firmly in the community. A happy place to hang out while enjoying great coffee, honest food and good vibes. A warm welcome from your second home. A comfy corner to watch the world go by.


10 years and counting, we're still going strong—we stick to our vision and believe strongly in what we do. And the thing is, we really, really love what we do.


If you’re in the neighbourhood, swing by and pull up a chair at one of our large sharing tables. Our Asian-influenced brunches are legendary, and our tau sar pau—a cult favourite lauded as Singapore’s best—even more so. You can also always depend on us for your caffeine fix; we’re big on specialty brews and make ours from a curated selection of unique house blends and single origins.


Beyond food and coffee, we get our kicks from interacting with the community. Raising awareness for meaningful causes, supporting local talent, and lifting everyone’s spirits—that’s our game. You’ll find our team eager to know you on a first-name basis, all fired up to greet you with wide smiles and open arms.


There’s no school like the old school. There’s no place like Forty Hands.
