French-Japanese Café Kitsuné has opened its first Singapore branch at the Capitol Singapore.

The café had its soft opening on Nov. 25. Its grand opening is on Dec. 1.

The brand was started in 2013 and now has a presence in cities across the world, including Paris, New York, Seoul and Beijing.

It has become a cult favourite for its full-bodied coffee and cute fox-shaped biscuits.

Minimalistic interior

Located on the ground floor of Capitol Singapore, the café features oak wood furnishing and decorated with greenery hanging from its high ceilings.

Kitsune means fox in Japanese, which is why it's no surprise that there are many subtle incorporations of fox-shaped designs around the café.
