You know it was coming. Singapore has its largest Starbucks store and it's at the iconic Jewel Changi Airport.

For starters, there is an Art Room which houses special collection of original artworks that are typically found within Starbucks stores around Asia.
There is also a specially created art piece which features the word "Singapore" based off Peranakan-inspired tiles and Starbucks coffee cards.
However, the coffee bar takes the cake. It is designed to resemble a coffee bean.
The store also has two bars and several coffee seminar areas. Along with that, there's also the VA388 Black Eagle Espresso Machine. You've might seen it at the World Barista Championships.
If you're a lover of desserts, guess what? Starbucks Singapore has paired up with local ice-cream parlor, Udders, to produce some mouthwatering series of coffees paired with ice cream in the form of Classic Affogato, Cold Brew Float, and Cold Brew Malt. Oh, there's also Milo Tiramisu.
Feeling hungry? There are locally inspired delicacies such as the Hainanese Chicken Rice Quinoa Salad.
If you're into sandwiches, there's the likes of Smoked Salmon & Cream Cheese Ciabatta, Mozzarella, Tomato & Pesto Ciabatta, Smoked Chicken, Turkey Bacon & Egg Mayo Brioche, and Pulled Beef Croissant. Yum!
