Wheeler’s Yard, Singapore

Walking into this small alley off the ever-busy Balestier Road, you may think you have stumbled into an industrial park. You wouldn’t be far wrong. The grey façades of the nondescript factories and warehouses here don’t really inspire.

However once you spot the cerulean blue exterior of Wheeler’s Yard, you know you’ve been transported into a different world amidst its dreary neighbours. Wheeler’s Yard is a bicycle café but to summarise it as such would be to do it a disservice. There’s more here than coffee and chainguards.

The industrial chic (in this case, quite literally industrial) warehouse doubles both as a “bicycle atelier” where a good range of bicycles and accessories are sold, with in-house mechanics to help you, as well as a coffee bar and “canteen” (food is available).

The place is huge so you don’t have to worry about jostling for a table or another diner inadvertently photo-bombing you. For Wheeler’s Yard is nothing if not a magnet for Instagrammers. To enjoy your cuppa in peace, opt for al fresco seating where you can watch the day go by (or strapping cyclists on their colourful rides).

Yums.

馬里士他路一如往常般的繁忙,
可是當我們拐進路旁的小胡同后,卻發現這裡別有洞天。
斑駁的墻壁,藍色的金屬鐵門,
這不是某家工廠或貨倉,
而是一間結合了自行車和咖啡的主題咖啡館–車夫小院Wheeler’s Yard。
除了出售來自台灣的手工自行車和配件外,
車夫小院這還備有專業的維修人員為大家服務;
當然,也少不了咖啡和食物。

雖然叫做車夫小院,但這的空間卻非常的寬敞,
無論室內和室外都設有許多的座位,
完全無需擔心得和其他顧客擠桌子的窘境。
這里也是我們到訪過最大的獨立咖啡館。
車夫小院的地方幽靜,再加上獨特的舊倉庫風貌,
所以雖然地點有些偏僻,且不容易尋找,
還是吸引了許多顧客特地到那去喝咖啡,享受一份悠閒的午後時光。

  1. ooo, it’s nice how there are so many different types of bicycles here! i think the bicycle i learned to ride on when i was in standard three would fit in perfectly here 😀

    1. I think among all the bicycles cafes that I’ve visited, this is the biggest one and these hand made bicycles are imported from Taiwan, so cool! 🙂

    1. 哈哈,Wheeler’s Yard 的地方真的很大,所以腳車就比較多。
      話說我前個星期又去了另一家自行車咖啡館,那的腳車也不少,呵呵。
