Coffee Atelier comprises a collection of five interlinked, beautifully-restored early 20th century 'shophouses' and residences, built in 1927, in Stewart Lane. These unique buildings were called shophouses because the original inhabitants carried out their trades on the ground floor, and lived with their families in the upper floors.
One of these, number 53, was once a coffee merchant's workshop; and here, in the back of the house, the original wood-fired coffee roasting equipment still stands today. The name 'Coffee Atelier' derives from this element of the building's history, and celebrates the memory of this artisanal trade from a bygone era.
Today, this conservation building houses an eclectic mix of a restaurant, an art gallery, a coffee museum and suites which are fully appointed with all modern amenities for short or long term stays.
