Only in Singapore do locals travel all the way to the airport just to hang out, but hey, we do have one of the best airports in the world and it’s full of food, shopping, and entertainment options that can last us through a whole day and more. The next time you make a trip there, venture out from the confines of T2 and head to Hub & Spoke, the newest cafe there.
Unlike the other eateries at Changi Airport, this cafe is in a standalone building - specifically, a beautiful glasshouse that will let you soak in the scenic views all around.

Read on to find out more about Hub & Spoke cafe at Changi Airport, Singapore!
Hub & Spoke is located right outside Terminal 2 of Changi Airport, opposite the car park. It is easily accessible via the Changi Airport Connector, a new park connector that serves as a bridge between the airport and East Coast Park. This is a pet-friendly and cyclist-friendly establishment with shower facilities you can use for a fee, so feel free to bike over with your furkids in tow!
With the high ceiling and wide glass windows, the cafe has an “open” feel, giving you the experience of dining amidst nature, but in air-conditioned comfort.
If you’d like to truly get close to the flora and fauna, go for one of the al fresco picnic bench seats outside. Don’t worry about the sun because there will be shade from umbrellas overhead.
With its kitchen operated by local eatery Roast & Toast, Hub & Spoke serves the usual Western cafe options like Eggs Benedict ($9.90), Salmon Benedict ($11.90), and Big Breakfast ($15.90). These breakfast/brunch dishes are served from 7.30am to 6pm daily, so you’ll have a chance to try them whether you’re an early riser or sleepy sloth.
Can’t make it in time for 6pm? There will still be dishes like pasta, meaty mains available till closing. Some examples include Truffle Mushroom Pasta ($14.90), Aglio Olio with Prawns ($13.90), Ribeye Steak with Black Pepper Sauce ($18.90), and Chicken Chop $13.90).
For a light meal, try their sandwiches like the Avocado Toast ($14.90), Steak Sando ($12.90), and Grilled Cheese ($10.90). All sandwiches are served with Soup of the Day!
Western dishes aside, there are also local favourites like Kaya Butter Toast Sets ($4.20), aka the quintessential Singaporean breakfast. If you’re coming by for lunch or dinner, there are also heavier options like Mee Siam ($5.90), Laksa ($6.90), and Nasi Lemak with Chicken ($7.90).
Oh, and not forgetting what seems to have become our unofficial national drink: Bubble tea. There are over 20 variants here, including flavours like Roasted Oolong ($3.60), Strawberry Matcha Fresh Milk ($4.20), and Yakult Chrysanthemum ($3.90).
Alternatively, there are also traditional kopitiam drinks like Kopi O ($1.30), refreshing beverages like Lemon Tea ($1.50), and English Tea ($2).
At night, and fairy lights strung from the trees will be lit up, making for an extra romantic setting. Say cheers with a bottle of beer ($8), or get a whole bucket of 6 ($40) to share with your mates!
Because of its aesthetically-pleasing nature, Hub & Spoke is also ideal for events like birthday parties and smaller weddings. The lawn out front makes a great space for photo-taking!
