With no shortage of cafes in Singapore, sometimes we need cafes with a little bit of twist. Apart from the food, sometimes its just the atmosphere that sticks with you. From Batman to Hello Kitty, a lot of character themed cafes have opened in Singapore. Along with these, there are also book and vintage themed cafes that form the other end of the spectrum. We have plotted out top picks in the 'Best Themed Caafes in Singapore' map on Anymap.

1. Hungry Heroes
It's not surprising that Hungry Heroes is quickly approaching its second year of business - decorated with countless original superhero memorabilia collected by the owner over 25 years and lit by a chandelier showpiece decked out in action figurines; the space alone attracts its fair share of clientele; everyone from fanboys to little children. That aside, with the casual space, wallet friendly grub and thoughtful drink offerings here, we wouldn't be surprised if Hungry Heroes becomes my go-to American diner - get in on the chicken burgers whilst visiting. Those are better than great.
Timing: Mon-Fri: 4pm - 11pm ; Sat-Sun: 12pm - 11pm
2. Gudetama Cafe
This cafe is dedicated to fans of Sanrio's lazy egg character that everyone finds to be extremely cute. The cafe screams of the Gudetama theme with a local flavour. With egg chairs, waffle ceilings and adorable tables, this place has handcrafted food items by a popular bento artist. The place is worth the queues if you are willing to dish out a few extra cash for the food.
Timing: Mon-Sun: 10am - 10pm
3. Hello Kitty Orchid Garden
Opened in late May, the Hello Kitty Orchid Garden has its interior decor and menu inspired by Singapore’s national flower. It will be located at Terminal 3’s Arrival Hall Central and to much bemusement, opened 24 hours daily. Ever since its launch date, crowds have thronged to visit this cafe.

4. Fresh Fruit Lab
The majority of the food at Fresh Fruits Lab (FFL) incorporates - you guessed it - fruit in one way or another. Whether in the sauce, salads, or the tea, fruits somehow find their way in. In keeping with the lab theme, at the end of the meal, you will be served cold-pressed fruit juice in test tubes. Iced water is also fruit-infused and served in beakers!

5. Kombi Rocks
Vintaged themed with a western appearance, the diner serves up nostalgic Asian food such as orh nee with gingko nuts to contribute to the reminscing process. The key, however is in the attractive line-up of well-maintained kombi vans on standby for Instagram shots and even rental should you be keen on a vintage-themed wedding.
Dishing out American cuisine with a heavy inception of Superhero charm in every aspect - cocoa powder stenciled patterns on drinks to batman shaped carrot cutouts in your soup; DC Comics Super Hero cafe is perfect for the young ones or perhaps those still flagrantly young at heart.

With chalkboards, card games like “Old Maid”, and the menu displayed in an exercise book, this cafe pulls out all the stops in ensuring authenticity.
