Toast Box is a reflection of the coffee shops from the 60s and 70s, where the common practice for breakfast was a fragrant cup of Nanyang Coffee accompanied by freshly toasted bread. This warm, nostalgic concept was reinvented to bring back fond memories for those who missed the good old times, and for the younger ones to experience the feel and flavours of a bygone era.

Established in October 2005 as a food stall unit of Food Republic Wisma Atria in Singapore, Toast Box has fast expanded with over 70 outlets strategically located all over Singapore, made easy and convenient for our customers (both young and old) to enjoy Nanyang Coffee and freshly toasted bread. Toast Box has been well received in other territories, expanding its foothold in Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and China.


Toast Box is committed to infuse passion, fun and vibrancy to create a new lifestyle experience for our customers. Our customers are greeted by the aroma of freshly brewed Nanyang Coffee, the smell of freshly toasted bread and visual sights of coffee or tea pulling. Varying interior styles, display décor and stylised music are pieced together to create a relaxing ambience.

Honouring a Nanyang coffee tradition –
starts from how we cultivate our beans

One sip of Toast Box’s signature Nanyang Kopi, and you’ll know how serious we are about re-creating that Nanyang coffee taste that has more than 100 years of history. Our passion and pursuit of that familiar taste has led us to discover a unique and selected blend of Robusta, Arabica and Liberica beans to bring back the familiar coffee that Hainanese immigrants enjoyed in the early Straits settlements.

Using both traditional and modern roasting methods to bring out the best of each bean type, the coffee beans are mixed in perfect proportions for superb taste and aroma. With beans picked from our partner plantations across China, Malaysia and Indonesia, our footprint is tracked to cultivate and harvest the beans through ethical means – so that for every cup that is served, you are assured of quality, commitment and a social responsibility from our partners. In addition, these beans are freshly ground and brewed at our stores to deliver the freshest cup of rich, velvety smooth coffee to you.

So reminisce with us, a quality taste and flavour from a bygone era.
