Late night gatherings are often associated with drinks. There’s nothing wrong with sipping on cocktails at these bars until the wee hours, that’s if you’re drinking responsibly of course. However, there will be days where alcohol is not exactly your first choice and that pretty much narrowed down more than half of the places you can hang. Shopping malls and most of the eateries would close by 10pm which is the usual case. This leaves many scrambling for places (that is not a bar or club) to go for a quick late night grazing or just a warm cup of chocolate.
These cafes are where you can head to as they are open till late. You can even grab a piece of chocolate cake to end the night on a sweet note if that tickles your fancy after 10pm. Here are seven and cafes open until past midnight, closing at either 1.00am or even 2.00am — so you can sleep with a happy tummy.
The name Le Pont takes inspiration from the word The Bridge in French. It’s an approriate name for the eatery as they aim to be the bridge to connect people, even past midnight. Le Pont serves pastries and bread, as well as speciality coffee.
Opening hours: Mondays to Sundays, 10am to 1am.

Coffea Coffee is popular Korean-based coffee chain that’s available in both major shopping malls and standalone outlets.
