Conscious coffee. Gratifying global comfort food. Delectable café dining by day, handcrafted cocktails by night - all set to a sublime soundtrack.
Set within the Pan Pacific Serviced Suites, Oriole Café & Bar makes a great destination for all-day casual dining and drinks. Here, diners can indulge in affordable “global comfort food”, matched by an extensive bar menu of quality coffee beverages and cocktails.
Owner Keith Loh, opened Oriole because he is an avid coffee lover and saw an opportunity for an all-day café and bar – akin to those in Europe – which offers quality coffee beverages and cocktails.
Spurred on by his passion, Keith came in first this year at the Singapore National Barista Championships (SNBC) in February 2010 and was second place in 2008. John Ting (SNBC 1st ’09, ’08), is currently manager of coffee operations at Oriole Coffee Roasters. Together, they have created a thoughtful selection of quality coffee beverages, featuring a choice of Oriole’s espresso blend or seasonal single origins.
“I hope that by serving quality ‘honest’ coffee at our outlets by dedicated, professional and properly-trained baristas, we can fill this niche in the café market in Singapore,” says Keith. Apart from the regular espresso, macchiato and cappuccino, coffee lovers will be delighted with other Oriole specials - which are double ristretto servings of the Oriole espresso blend, as well as some of their winning coffee creations. The full bar menu also carries a variety of teas, milkshakes, sodas, juices, beers, wines and Oriole’s signature cocktails, so guests can pop in anytime during the day for a quick cuppa or tipple.
Besides its substantial drinks list, the spacious dining café is the ideal place for breezy lunches, quick coffee breaks and relaxed dinners. Oriole has a warm and inviting ambience, featuring dazzling brass chandeliers, leather-upholstered booth seats, and a long marble-top bar counter. In the evening, Oriole morphs into a chic and lively watering hole that serves up specialty cocktails and an eclectic music selection.
