Ronin, a popular cafe among coffee lovers, has announced today (Jan 31) will be their last day serving their customers.

“The time has come for us to say goodbye, for now,” the cafe, located on Hong Kong Street, wrote on its Facebook page.

It cited “increased operating costs and manpower shortage” as the reason for the closure, and that it has had to consolidate “very finite resources”.

Ronin, which opened in 2013, was known for its well-brewed coffee. It also served other dishes such as toasts and sandwiches. 

“Our much loved scrambled eggs and signature coffees Wicked & Generra will be served at #PUNCH_sg, alongside our regulars' ambrosia SuperBrazil coffee blend from #GenoveseCoffee,” the message continued.

Fans of the cafe expressed their sadness in the comments, with one customer saying that Ronin was the “Best coffee in the whole CQ/BQ (Clarke Quay/Boat Quay) area, for sure”. She added: “There’s still Punch but it won’t be the same. Will miss you guys.”
