Homegrown coffee brand TAG Espresso opened its second outlet at Takashimaya Shopping Centre on Tuesday (Feb 21).

Located on the second floor of the mall, the 30-seater cafe features a modern botanical theme.

Similar to its first outlet in Raffles City Shopping Centre, the branch at Takashimaya serves the brand’s full range of premium coffee, including the americano and a local-inspired kaya pandan latte. 

Seasonal beverages are also available at the cafe.

Diners seeking a heavier meal can enjoy staples such as the Smoky Fried Rice ($16.80) and the Sirloin Beef Steak ($27.80), which comes with tender slices of medium-rare beef served with an onsen egg, pickled daikon radish and furikake on a bed of fluffy Japanese rice.

TAG Espresso also offers dairy-free options such as oat milk and coconut milk, which are available at a top-up of $1.
