Where to Get Lunch in Bugis Singapore


Here are some (of many) places we love to go to for lunch when working in one of our favourite coworking spaces in Bugis Singapore.


Lowercase Cafe

With incredible pizza with unique topping options like “Lychee Bacon” and “Otah Caviar”. this chill cafe is a great option for a working lunch. You’ll probably meet other freelancers and entrepreneurs there, too. And they have really good coffee, so if you need a quick caffeine break during your work day, we recommend popping over to try their weekly variations of single-origin, farm-to-cup beans.

Fu Lin Original Fried Yong Tofu

The original Fu Lin Yong Tofu on East Coast Road has been racking up fame since 1995, so this new branch in Bugis Junction is a welcome one - and very conveniently close to UCommune and other coworking spaces in the area. It’s well known for its minced chicken and mushroom gravy with deep-fried yong tau foo ingredients - a hearty and satisfying lunch for your work day!
