    Roasted Sip

    Everything a mini-temple to the bean should be, this coffee roastery draws Bruneians from BSB all the way to Jerudong. There's a good mix of coffees here from Brazil, Guatemala, Mexico and Ethiopia, prepared using V60, Chemex or Aeropress and served against a backdrop of bare brick wall and glossy bean photography.

    De Royalle Café

    With a living-room-style indoor area (complete with leopard-print armchairs) and outdoor pavement tables, this always-open establishment has a supply of perusable English-language newspapers and serves up an Asian-themed menu (mains B$6.70 to B$16) of noodles, beef rendang and homemade ice cream, and, of course, freshly brewed coffee. A fine place for a relaxed rendezvous with friends.

    Kapra Coffee

    If you're Muara bound, or just in need of a good caffeine fix, swing by this coffee roastery. Go for piccolo latte, espresso or affogato and perch at the large communal table. There's a range of iced coffees also, including the espresso tonic (double espresso over ice and tonic water) – refreshing or a step too far? You decide!

    This spic and span cafe serves up proper tea and grown-up coffee (including cold-brew and other connoisseur interpretations), plus smoothies and a decent selection of sandwiches, wraps, waffles and lunchtime mains such as pasta and fish and chips. It's a pleasant spot to hole up with a book after dark.

    Another Cafe

    A cool cafe with a certain industrial chicness – think corrugated iron walls, polished concrete floors and heavily distressed furniture. Coffee lovers (even the fussy ones) should be more than satisfied by the brews served here. There is also a tempting selection of pastries, cakes and sandwiches.
