Founded in August 2013, Brawn & Brains Coffee was a tiny coffee shop, almost akin to a hole in the wall cafe with a size less than 350 square feet. Our main focus then was the same but on a smaller scale; to source for high quality green coffee, offering freshly roasted coffee, freshly kneaded and baked pastries accompanied with a simple fare of hearty sandwiches to our customers. The opportunity for expansion came in late 2014 which had us move into a new space 3 times larger than the first shop. Although the new space was exciting, it required massive work to be done as it is located in the grand building of the Old Singapore Badminton Hall which was built in the1950s. We started operations in the new space when the works were finally completed in July 2015.
We love the location and the achitectural framework of the building and are still operating there, daily except Mondays. 

Coffee Festival 2017 at Marina Bay Cruise Centre. In August 2017, our team participated in the Singapore Coffee Festival featuring our own roast of filter coffee selection and B&B Coffee Beer, which was brewed by our friends from Rye & Pint Brewery, one of Singapore craft beer breweries. It was our first and we had a fantastic time meeting friends, partners as well as customers who have enjoyed their experience with us at the festival tasting and sipping coffees which we have roasted on our own. 

Brawn & Brains Coffee constantly strives to improve and innovate to create new products, if not maintain the consistency and high quality in all our array of coffees, bakes and food that we offer to our customers. Therefore with feedback from our friends and customers and knowing how our stores can get rather busy at times, we went on to develop our very own Brawn & Brains Coffee App which can be downloaded from Apple Store and Google Play in 2018.  We hope that our customers have enjoyed this new ordering platform thus far, which have helped to enhance the ordering process a great deal by allowing customers to pick up their orders in a breeze once they arrive at our stores without having to wait or queue. 

Moving forward to 2019, our 2nd and new store is located at 218 East Coast Road. It features a new coffee and food menu using different brewing methods and using fresh yet simple ingredients to create comfort food that is hearty and  a delightful cup of good coffee which can be enjoyed by everyone.

We strongly believe in continuous learning, improvement and giving back to our customers, friends and communities who have been supporting us in the last 5 years. We also aspire to do our best by giving back to our family at work so that we can all continue to grow as a team while staying true to our brand, love and be proud of what we do best.


To innovate, progress and grow with positivity with our team and people.
