Singapore Changi Airport Staff Canteen at Terminal 2

In a world-class airport like Changi Airport, most foods are ridiculously overpriced. But, my friends, fret not. There are 2 staff canteens in the airport where you can find food under S$5, one in Terminal 1 and another one in Terminal 2.

Today, I’m going to show you how to find the new staff canteen at Terminal 2 because the canteen is rather hidden from the public. Previously managed by Select, the canteen is now managed by Kopitiam.  Watch my video here:


1. Use Kopitiam card (blue colour) to get 10% discount off your purchase. If you don’t have, just purchase one from the self-service machine. But, do your cost-benefit analysis beforehand because a new card costs a couple of bucks.

2. Once you finish eating, return the tray to tray collection area and tap your Kopitiam card to a card reader to get 2 points. 40 points give you a free coffee/tea.

Let me know what you think of the canteen and what’s your favourite food!

    • Glad you find it useful! Yeah, it’s so hidden I had a hard time locating it!

  1. Kopidiam card is just for Singaporean or also for foreigners? How can I get one

  2. Can I reach staff canteen through transit area of Terminal 2? How?

    • in the staff canteen must try some delicious typical singaporean foods ? and can i pay with euro ? or must to have sing dollar ? i just stay there just 2 hours

    • Hey FH, it’s open from 7am – 9pm only, not 24 hours. I have included the opening hours in the video (at 1:20) but probably it’s too fast to be noticeable. Thanks for the input!

  3. Hello,
    Are you able to get a beer in the staff canteen areas?

    • Hi Fiona, I don’t recall seeing any alcohol in the canteen.
