The buzz: The Les Amis Group’s latest offering (at least until their Vietnamese noodle bar Nam Nam launches later this month) marries two of our greatest vices: coffee and booze.

The décor: This understated yet chic spot with wooden flooring and furniture transitions easily from daytime coffee bar (8am-5pm), using beans from local roasters including Papa Palheta, to wine lounge by night (from 5pm).

The food: For those who pop by when it’s still bright out, pastries like almond croissants ($1.20) dominate, while evenings see more substantial eats such as grilled beef in betel leaves ($22) and duck rillettes ($16) make an appearance, courtesy of next-door sister establishments Annam Vietnamese Cuisine and Bistro du Vin respectively.

The drinks: There’s no ignoring the firm spotlight on vinos. Two Enomatic machines featuring 16 different wines allow you to choose from three different sizes (25ml, 75ml or 150ml). You’re furnished with a charge card that you insert into the machine; just grab a glass and press a button. Look forward to a list dominated by Old World wines, many of which are from France. There’s also a retail store with a 400-strong collection of wines to keep the connoisseurs entertained; enjoy them there or take some home with you.

The music: Easy listening, loungey tracks.

The crowd: A well-heeled, polished lot.

Why you’ll be back: For a top-notch vino selection (variety is key) and fab nibbles to go with, Caveau’s hard to beat.
