After almost a year’s delay, famous Kyoto coffee chain % Arabica is finally opening their highly-anticipated first Singapore outlet on June 28, 2019. The franchised outlet is located at 56 Arab Street, which formerly housed Turkish restaurant Sufi’s. The delay came about as the brand had to tweak their initial store design to comply with local regulations.
8days.sg got a sneak peek at the cafe ahead of its opening next Friday, and here’s what to expect.
For the uninitiated, % Arabica was founded by coffee farm owner and coffee machine distributor Kenneth Shoji in Kyoto in 2014, together with latte art world champion Junichi Yamaguchi, the brand’s current global head barista.
