Whether you’re a freelancer, have your own business or just love to get out of the house to take care of your huge backlog of mama admin, cafes with free wifi are the perfect blend of work and play! Unfortunately there’s a bit of a growing trend for NOT providing wifi to keep customers flowing, so we thought we’d round up our favourite spots where the coffee’s good, the vibe is friendly and there might even be some kind of distraction for little ones on offer if they happen to tag along!



The Book Café
With its homey vibe and great service, River Valley’s Book Café welcomes peaceful lingerers. They let you nurse a coffee for a while and there is a cute little corner for kiddos with some toys and books. They’ve got a stash of books for sale and fashion mags for browsing and their wifi is super-quick.

20 Martin Road, River Valley, Singapore 239070
Tel: (+65) 6887 5430
Open: Sun-Thurs 8:30am – 10:30pm, Fri-Sat 8:30am – 12:30am


It might not rock our world, but Brunetti’s is a solid mama stalwart with its convenient Tanglin Mall location, decent coffee and selection of food and sweet treats. The wifi is great and at quiet times (weekday afternoons for example) you can definitely eak out a couple of hours working time there – pop the littles in Gymboree upstairs and you’re golden!

163 Tanglin Road, #01-35 Tanglin Mall, Singapore 247933
Tel: (+65) 6733 9088
Open: Sun-Thurs 8am – 9pm, Fri-Sat 8am – 10pm

jimmy monkey

Jimmy Monkey
Located in a tucked-away part of Buona Vista is a charming little hangout which serves up some of the best coffee we’ve enjoyed in Singers and really feels like a neighbourhood joint. Friendly to keyboard warriors, they also do a selection of simple-done-right munchies.

9 One-North Gateway, #01-51 One-North Residences, Singapore 138643
Tel: (+65) 6777 8470
Open: Mon-Fri 8:30am – 8:30pm, Sat-Sun 8:30am – 6pm


Jones the Grocer
We steer clear of the dark ION and Mandarin Gallery branches to head to the original sun-drenched premises at Dempsey where we grab a table outside under the fans, and seek some inspiration in the leafy surroundings. Their yummy brekkie options are a great bonus as is the speedy wifi connection!

9 Dempsey Rd, #01-12 Dempsey Hill, Singapore 247697
Tel: (+65) 6476 1512
Open: everyday 9am – 11pm

kith park mall

Kith Café
Our favourite branch of Kith for getting down to some serious working has got to be their random Park Mall branch on Penang Road, which is a lot more peaceful than their Rodyk Street location! Settle yourself peacefully at the back of the café with a huge mug of java and get ready to let the creativity flow!

9 Penang Road, #01-01E Park Mall, Singapore 238459
Tel: (+65) 6338 8611
Open: Tues-Sun: 8am – 10pm, Closed on Mon


Maison Ikkoku
We adore this little hipsterish café in Kampong Glam on a rainy day as you just can’t get cosier! Nibble on a fudge caramel brownie, indulge in one of their lattes and just accept you might be a little squished as this place is popular… Once your workday is done you can even head upstairs to their cocktail bar for a well-deserved alcoholic treat!

20 Kandahar Street, Singapore 198885
Tel: (+65) 6294 0078
Open: Mon-Thurs 9am – 9pm, Fri-Sat 9am – 11pm, Sun 9am – 7pm


Want to know the true definition of multi-tasking? Getting a mani-pedi WHILE tapping away on your keyboard! Manicurious is an adorable nail salon/café/boutique and they’ll throw in a free coffee with every service. We dare you to resist one of their Windowsills pie slices! They also have a new outlet on Tras Street, which shares its premises with super-chic bar, Jekyll & Hide which we can’t wait to check out either!

41 Beach Road, Singapore 189680
Tel: (+65) 6333 9096
Open: Mon-Sat: 11am – 9pm. Closed on Sun


Necessary Provisions
While it might be totally out of the way to get to, once you discover this quaint neighbourhood gem with its strong coffee and home baked goodies, you’ll find it hard to leave. And if you end up clocking a bit of overtime, you’ll even be able to sneak in a boutique beer or two… straight from the tap. Ahhhh!

21 Eng Kong Terrace, Singapore 598993
Tel: (+65) 9231 7920

Open: Tue-Thu 10am – 10pm, Fri-Sat 10am – 12am, Sun 10am – 6pm. Closed on Mon & first Tue of the month.


This relative newcomer to the Singapore café scene is a bit of a Jones the Grocer spinoff, so you can expect fantastically simple nosh, a fun selection of takeaway gourmet treats and of course, good coffee. They’re in Mandarin Gallery in Orchard so if your concentration wanes, get your shop on instead!

333A Orchard Road, #02-05 Mandarin Gallery, Singapore 238897
Tel: (+65) 6732 1565
Open everyday 9am – 11pm


Toby’s Estate
Robertson Quay’s Toby’s Estate is a longtime fave of the Sassy Mama team for its riverside views, delicious food and out-of-this-world coffee. They’ve recently undergone a renovation, so we’re excited to see what improvements they’ve made, and we’re crossing our fingers it’ll be nothing short of awesome.

8 Rodyk Street, Singapore 238216
Tel: (+65) 6636 7629
Open everyday 7am-4pm


Honorable mention: It might not be totally open to the general public, but mamas who fancy working at Blue House Nursery’s Pantry just need to request a membership card at the counter to join the community. Tots can amuse themselves in the little play area while mama sips on a latte and gazes out at the fields!


Play Centres with Wifi

If you’ve got a kid with an independent play ethic (lucky you!) then you might actually be able to head to a soft play for some quality laptop time while junior burns off some energy! Here are our pick of the most work-conducive…


Did you ever dream you’d be surfing the web surrounded by plastic dinosaurs and jungle surrounds? Perhaps not, eh? Well, slick corporate offices are for losers when you can tap tap scroll to the dulcet tones of children playing (screaming) as they wear themselves out at Amazonia.

1 Kim Seng Promenade, Singapore 237994
Tel: (+65)  6235 4522
Open: everyday 10am – 10pm


The wifi at Fidgets is fab at all their locations, so book your munchkin into an arts and crafts or baking class and take full advantage of the opportunity to sit back with a cuppa and relax knowing they’re fully entertained.

Fidgets World: 200 Turf Club Road, #03-10 The Grandstand, Singapore 287994
Tel: (+65) 6466 7611
Open: everyday 9am – 6pm

Fidgets City: 2 Bayfront Avenue, #B1-57 The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore 018972
Tel: (+65) 6688 7406
Open: everyday 10am – 10pm

Tel: (+65) 6735 7369
Open: Mon – Thu 11am – 7pm, Fri – Sun & PH 11am – 9pm 


GoGo Bambini
Winning bonus points for the fact that the coffee shop part is entirely separate from the play area, GoGo Bambini also deserves our loyalty for their delicious banana muffins and decent salad selection. Head there on weekday afternoons for a (relatively) peaceful environment to plough through that to-do list!

8 Dempsey Road, Singapore 247696
Tel: (+65) 6474 4176
Open: everyday 9am – 7pm


The Polliwogs
Whether you’re heading to their East Coast or Robertson Quay branch you can chill on the sidelines and enjoy their selection of mags and newspapers or head online with their free wifi connection. When you sign up for a membership you’re handed a whole stack of freebie vouchers, which will let you sip free coffee for a good while!

1020 East Coast Parkway #01-02, Singapore 449878
Tel: (+65) 6442 2805
Open: Mon – Fri 10am – 7pm, Sat – Sun & PH 10am – 8pm
