Almond milk lattes are huge in Singapore right now, and we have to admit we’ve fully jumped on board. After all, how can you not love the rich, nutty taste and creamy mouthfeel of a good almond milk mixed with life-giving caffeine? Plus almond milk is a great vegan and dairy-free alternative to milk that’s low in calories and sugar and high in vitamins D and E. For the past little while we’ve been scouring the island for cafes that do cow’s milk substitutes and we’ve found a few that are pretty spectacular. Here’s where you can find amazing almond milk lattes in Singapore, plus other dairy-free coffee drinks. (Ranked in no particular order)
1. Common Man Coffee Roasters
If you’ve ever had a truly incredible coffee in Singapore, chances are the beans came from Common Man Coffee Roasters. The team here sources sustainable beans from primo growers around the world and roasts them right here at their state-of-the-art roastery. Visit their cafe on Martin Road and you can grab a fresh brew prepared by an expert barista with your choice of non-dairy milks including almond milk.
Common Man Coffee Roasters, 22 Martin Road, Singapore 239058. p. +65 6836 4695. Open Mon – Fri 7:30am – 5pm, Sat – Sun 7:30am – 6pm
We love the bright colours and easy-going vibes in Loloku, plus the fact that you can grab almond milk lattes from 8:30am onwards, making this a great CBD pit stop before you head into the office (especially if your office happens to be in The working Capitol). Swing by later for lunch and you can grab healthy, hearty grain bowls packed with your choice of veggies, proteins and sauces.
Loloku, 1 Keong Saik Road, The Working Capitol #01-05, Singapore 089109. p. +65 6223 5001. Open Mon – Fri 9am – 3pm
We’ve always loved Sarnies for their commitment to quality and the coffee menu is no exception. All the coffee beans are roasted in house by a dedicated team who are passionate about finding the best flavour profiles, and each latte, cappuccino and coffee drink can be made with almond milk on request. Insider’s tip: they also do a great espresso martini, so keep this on your list as a potential after-work drinks spot.
Sarnies, 136 Telok Ayer St, Singapore 068601. p. +65 6224 6091. Open Mon – Tues 7:30am – 10:30pm, Wed – Fri 7:30am – 12am, Sat – Sun 8:30am – 4pm
4. Wild HoneyWhen it comes to catering to food sensitivities and special requests, Wild Honey is at the top of their game. Not only do they offer vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free options for most of their breakfast dishes, but they also extend that courtesy to their coffee menu. Grab your favourite cuppa with your choice of almond milk, soy milk or oat milk
Wild Honey, various locations
5. Little Farms
We’re particularly fond of the almond milk on offer at the Little Farms grocery stores, as they have a great selection to choose from and each one is great quality. They also have dairy-free yoghurt and other vegan goodies to grab. Even better, you can fuel up before or after your shopping trip with an almond milk latte or other creamy non-dairy caffeinated beverage at any of the Little Farms cafes.

6. Living Cafe
Living Cafe is committed to healthy, holistic eats, which is why most of the dishes on the menu are made with raw, vegan ingredients. They don’t use cow’s milk at all in the restaurant, which is great news for lactose intolerant peeps. Instead all of their coffee drinks are made with your choice of soy, hazelnut or almond milk. The almond milk is made in house daily, so you can be sure it’s ultra fresh.
Living Cafe, 779 Bukit Timah Rd, Singapore 269758. p. +65 6468 4482. Open Mon – Tues 10am – 7pm, Wed – Fri 10am – 8pm, Sat – Sun 9am – 8pm
7. Open Farm Community
Open Farm Community is a green oasis in the middle of the city that aims to connect the community to nature by offering locally sourced farm-to-table fare. They have their own garden in the back and work closely with farmers to source sustainable produce for their grain bowls, salads, and other wholesome eats. They also make their own almond milk in-house, so you can grab dairy-free lattes and other coffee drinks any time.
Open Farm Community, 130E Minden Road, Singapore 248819. p. +65 6471 0306. Open Mon – Thurs 12pm – 4pm, 6pm – 11pm, Fri 12pm – 4pm, 6pm – 12am, Sat 11am – 5pm, 6pm – 12am, Sun 11am – 5pm, 6pm – 11pm
Just like their flagship cafe, Common Man Coffee Roasters, Common Man Stan offers almond milk and other dairy-free options for their excellent java drinks made with house roasted beans. The vibe here is a little different than at the original spot with shophouse interiors that boast rattan, wood and marble and special dishes made with products from local joints like Tiong Bahru Bakery.
Common Man Stan, 11 & 12 Stanley Street, Singapore 068730. p. +65 6877 4855. Open daily 7:30am – 5:30pm
