Payment is cashless via the DBS PayLah! e-wallet or DBS and POSB credit or debit cards.
Consumers can even customise their orders, such as requesting less sugar or more milk in their coffee or tea - simply by chatting with a chatbot that represents participating restaurants.
"If instant messaging is the way for people to communicate, then we need to help businesses find a way to engage their customers on such platforms," said Mr Jeremy Soo, head of Consumer Banking Group (Singapore) at DBS Bank.
There is no need to download a specific app to order ahead at participating restaurants, indicating that the bank recognises app fatigue among consumers.
Entrepreneur John Chen, 39, said he usually orders his morning cuppa when parking his car to save time. "By the time I walk to Kopi Ong, my order is ready," he said.
