- D’Good Café
Strategically located in Holland Village, near all major tertiary institutions like Singapore and Ngee Ann Polytechnics, and NUS and NTU, where students are more financially independent, D’Good Café is a 3-leveled café with an indoor air-conditioned room for students to study with their friends and not forgo on a meal, common when students study at coffee houses like Starbucks and/or Coffee Bean that provides good coffee and Wifi but no actual meal. It also offers an outdoor area for those simply looking for a quiet place in the vicinity to hang out with the people they see day in and out in school or the office. PS. They have these metre-tall cuddly bears that makes for good study companion, especially as you feel the sleepiness kick-in after a 2-hour stare off with your lecture notes!
