Desserts. We eat them whenever we are angry, bored, happy or sad.
It is true that they make us feel better, even if it is just a temporary relief. But living in the world’s most expensive city means we often have to fork out ridiculous amounts just for a pretty dessert. Well, the good news is – that’s not always the case, as long as you look hard enough. Or know where to look.
Our team has expanded our waistlines just to curate this guide of affordable and delicious sweet treats in Singapore that everyone can seek comfort from without breaking the bank. You are welcome.
We present to you The Ultimate Guide To 30 Awesome Desserts Under S$8 In Singapore.
As a dessert lover, you would know that desserts are basically the bucket of gold at the end of the rainbow. You yearn to finish your meal quickly so you can end your meal off with that spongey cake or gloriously creamy chocolate gelato.
If you have a sweet tooth, you would agree with us. You probably also have a list of your favourite dessert places in Singapore and you must have seen a thousand ‘Best Desserts in Singapore’ articles—but here is something new. We are looking at RED desserts today.
In this edition, we explore vivid red desserts that had us swooning over, both with its appearance and taste. Here are 10 Red Desserts In Singapore You Need To Try!
Unlike the other regions of Singapore, the North is still relatively new to the cafe scene. If you are a long-time resident of the region, you might have been perplexed with the lack of cafes and faced with the need to constantly travel out for an added variety of interesting eats.
Thankfully, the Gods have heard our prayers and many new cafes have begun to sprout in certain corners of the Northern District in Singapore. You will be surprised to find some of these places taking root near neighbourhood estates which are really accessible and easy to spot.
Here are some of our picks on cafes to visit in the North in Singapore.
Layers and layers of mascarpone cheese goodness, with spongy ladyfingers doused in coffee, and lavishly sprinkled with cocoa. Tiramisu is our first love and will always have a special place in our hearts.
The popular Italian dessert sure has an affectionate name. Tiramisu means “pick me up”, and yes, we’d do that in a heartbeat. Where do you head to when you need a Tiramisu fix in Singapore? We have several favourites, and we are gonna share them all with you.
Here, read our guide on Singapore’s Best Tiramisu. If you have any to recommend, let us know, because we are up for a good one any time.
One of the newest and most happening cafes in town now is Boufe at Phoenix Park, and if you are scratching your head over what it means and how to pronounce, Boufe is quite essentially made up from the words ’boutique’ and ‘cafe’. Read it as boo-fay.
Few restaurants in Singapore are as romantic and artistic as Arteastiq Boutique Tea House is. Pun is intended, but you might derive from its name that this restaurant is all about art and tea. They call it the “art of teasing”, but we think there is so much more.
It is the kind of sexiness you would associate with a date night, or a regal dining affair for the high society. Arteastiq sits at a quiet corner of Mandarin Gallery, and scores for its accessible location and wide space. Tasteful interior design with predominant monochrome furniture, exotic chandeliers and sporadic stalks of white flowers, chi-chi ambience with French jazz, an art studio, and a robust menu of artisanal teas and all kinds of wondrous food dishes.
We sampled the new menu recently, and we have been containing our excitement of sharing them since. Which is why we say Arteastiq is more than just tea and art jamming, because the food menu is nothing short of impressive. From an assortment of appetisers and contemporary mains that are created with love, to a selection of desserts that are reinterpreted with modern takes, the new menu packs a punch and gives us even more reasons to return to Arteastiq.
Arteastiq is undisputedly among our favourite dining concepts along Orchard Road, and here are our picks from its new menu:

One of the newer additions to the cafe scene is Maple & Market Bakery Cafe at Cassia Crescent, just a few blocks behind Old Airport Road Food Market. Greeted by the smell of freshly baked cakes and the aroma of coffee brewing upon stepping in to the small space, it had us at hello.
