This guide to the best dessert places in Singapore was last updated on 5 July 2014.

Desserts make us happy, desserts make us smile, desserts are our best of friends. Indulging in desserts is like a hobby to us. We like to go on frequent quests to find new dessert places in Singapore, and share them with our favourite people.

Here is our guide to the Best Dessert Places in Singapore.

Antoinette Patisserie


Antoinette


Antoinette is a Parisian pâtisserie and salon du thé by Chef Pang Kok Keong, one of Singapore’s best pastry chefs. The French patisserie is a great place for a quiet afternoon high tea.

Maple & Market


Many cafes and bakeries are starting to open in HDB neighbourhood estates, and one of them is Maple & Market. It is a new addition to the Old Airport Road neighbourhood and surely a hidden gem. Maple & Market is a small bakery with just a few seats. So it is probably not a place to linger. However, you should still drop by to pick up a few cakes on your way home. They also conduct baking classes for those who are interested to learn more about baking.

Good coffee, delicious waffles, lovely cakes, gorgeous displays – this charming cafe fully utilised the small space and ticked all the right boxes.

What do we need to say about Marmalade Pantry? It is one of the most popular afternoon high teas (read: taitai hangout place) in Singapore.

Cupcake lovers must have the ones from Marmalade Pantry. Crumbly, moist and flavourful, Marmalade Pantry’s Rose and Limonata are the best cupcakes in Singapore. Some of the other desserts that we like are the toffee date pudding and salted caramel cheesecake.

Paul Bakery Desserts


Paul Bakery


Paul Bakery has opened in Singapore with much fanfare, and it is not difficult to understand why the French boulangerie/patisserie is packed with customers everyday, any time of the day.

For those who have been to Europe, Paul Boulangerie is the place for them to relive those wonderful memories of having a warm croissant and a cuppa on cold, winter days. And for those who have no clue, we’d say skip the waffles and crepes, and go for their croissant and pain au chocolat. The mille-feuille is quite a treat, too!

Wimbly Lu


Wimbly Lu is among our favourite places for desserts, and we go there all the time and have, by far, tried all the desserts on the menu. We love the intimate and somewhat rustic atmosphere, and the fact that all the desserts are so reasonably-priced is what had our loyalty earned. While some of the desserts did not impress, the waffle and root beer cake are reasons enough for us to return time and again.
