If you enjoy a mix of shopping and café-hopping, then Ralph Lauren’s latest café may be the place for you. The American luxury fashion brand has opened its second Ralph’s Coffee establishment at Shaw Centre, right at the heart of Singapore’s Orchard Road.
Fans of the brand will be familiar with Ralph’s Coffee, a café concept where visitors can treat themselves to classic American desserts such as cookies, cakes and soft-serve ice cream. Of course, the dining destination’s main draw is the Ralph’s Roast, Ralph Lauren’s very own signature coffee brewed from organically grown beans from Central and South America. This is the coffee that is used throughout the menu items including the latte, drip coffee and espresso tonic.
Ralph’s Coffee has popped up in cities like New York, Paris, London and Tokyo. Last year, Ralph Lauren brought the concept to Singapore, opening a café in its boutique at Marina Bay Sands.
Similarly, the new Ralph’s Coffee outlet in Singapore is located within the Polo Ralph Lauren flagship store in Shaw Centre. The café can be found on the ground floor, and features a welcoming bear mascot right by the entrance. Guests will feel right at home thanks to Ralph’s Coffee’s cosy and rustic interiors, marked by rich oak wide plank flooring and polished brass details.
As much of a feast for the eyes as for the tastebuds, drinks are served up in Ralph’s Coffee signature cups. In fact, if you’re a fan of the café’s white and green branding, you can also take home its merchandise: Ralph’s Coffee mugs, tote bags, hats and T-shirts are all available to shop.
Exclusively in Singapore, you can also get your hands on the Ralph’s Coffee Bearista Polo Bear Tumbler. A high fashion alternative to the trendy Stanley cup, the tumbler features Ralph Lauren’s adorable bear mascot in apron, standing against the Marina Bay skyline.
And if you’re shopping for Chinese New Year gifts, check out the limited-edition New York Cookie Box. Coming in striking red and gold packaging, the box features a dragon motif—a nod to this year’s Chinese zodiac animal—and contains an assortment of Ralph’s Coffee cookies, including the new Orange Hazelnut Cookie Sandwich. Priced at SGD 42 each, the New York Cookie Box will be available at Ralph’s Coffee until 2 March, 2024.
With Chinese New Year gifts done, you can move on to shopping for your Chinese New Year outfits. Find the perfect festive pieces to wear this Lunar New Year at the Polo Ralph Lauren store, which has launched its Lunar New Year 2024 collection for men, women and children. For the ladies, a standout is the Lunar New Year Hybrid Pleated Dress in red. Crafted from a wool blend, the dress has a flattering, fit-and-flare silhouette.
For something more casual, there is also an array of comfy, cable-knit tops to choose from. And if you really want to get people talking, consider the Lunar New Year Polo Bear Sweater, featuring the aforementioned mascot holding red packets.
Clearly, there is lot to love about Ralph’s Coffee. You’d be hard-pressed to find another spot in town where your coffee break comes with a dose of retail therapy.
Ralph’s Coffee is now open in the Polo Ralph Lauren store at Shaw Centre, 1 Scots Road.
