Lemon Tarts

We confess we are huge fans of lemon tarts. These citrus desserts are always refreshing, and we love how every bite of this zesty treat leaves a lingering tangy aftertaste.

A satisfying lemon tart is hard to come by and we have had our fair share of disappointments. We decided to take it upon ourselves to hunt for the best lemon tarts in town – and we successfully found several worthy of the extra calories!

From newly opened Mad About Sucre’s Coco Citron Tart to longstanding Baker & Cook’s classic Lemon Tart, we have shortlisted 11 Best Lemon Tarts in Singapore for this guide. And we hope you love them as much as we do!

baker-and-cook lemon tart


Artisanal bakery Baker & Cook’s classic Lemon Tart (S$5) is a puny treat that packs a delightful punch in every bite. Reputable baker/founder Dean Brettschneider has tweaked the classic recipe to cater to Singaporeans’ tastebuds; the smooth semi-sweet lemon curd is not overwhelmingly sour while the buttery pastry is neither overly crispy nor doughy.

Lemon Tart


Carpenter & Cook’s Lemon Cream “Queen of Hearts” Tart (S$6.50) is made up of sweet pastry dough crust that is crumbly but sturdy enough to hold the lemon curd well without breaking, and of course, lemon curd that is smooth with an addictive tartness.

Ciel Patisserie


The Hougang neighbourhood may seem like an unlikely place to find a French patisserie, but that is exactly where Ciel Patisserie is located. Unassuming but very surprising, this small patisserie has a wholesome range of cakes (S$4.80 – S$5.80), and tarts (S$4.20).

In particular, Ciel Patisserie’s Lemon Meringue Tart stands out for its perfect balance of sweet and tart. Definitely one of the best lemon tarts in Singapore.

Drips Lemon Tart


Baked to perfection, Drips Bakery’s Lemon Meringue Tart (S$7) is topped with a slightly charred homemade meringue, and while the portion is generous, the overload of sweetness masked the tartness of the lemon curd. It is otherwise still a lovely rendition, and an interesting thing to note is that the tart is unconventionally encased in delicious chocolate crust!

Flock Lemon Tart


Flock Cafe’s Lemon Tart (S$7) is an unassuming dessert sitting in the refrigerated display counter. We dived straight into the tart and were pleasantly surprised by the lemon curd’s thickness! The generous filling of creamy curd was sweet and tangy with unmissable lemony notes. The light-textured soft pastry shell makes the consumption process a tad easier too.

flourish lemon tart


Flourish’s Lemon Tart (S$3.80) will be a hit amongst those who enjoy the sharpness of lemon flavour. The creamier-textured lemon curd is significantly sour and we love every bite of the zest! The pastry encasing the filling is near-crumbly on the sides with a sturdy biscuit-like crunchy base. There are also miniature portions of these divine treats for those who just want a bite.

Clifford Lemon Tart


The Lemon Tart (S$18) from La Brasserie (formerly known as Clifford Restaurant) might be a pricey dessert indulgence but it is easily the best in Singapore. Handmade by a team of passionate pastry chefs, the heavenly lemon tart’s fillings are prepared with fresh lemon and lime juice.

The dessert is served with wild berries sauce, succulent black berries and meringue sticks. A quenelle-shaped sweet meringue sits atop citrus tart to provide a sugary contrast.

mad about sucre coco citron


Mad About Sucre’s Coco Citron (S$10.80+) is an interesting rendition of the typical lemon tart. The lightweight lemon curd is essentially sweet and the citrus notes are completely subdued. The sable tart is topped with white coconut mousse and crunchy shatter sugar crystals, which gives the dessert an overall delightful contrast of textures.

pantler citron blanc


Both founders of Pantler have previously worked in the pastry-making departments of Joël Robuchon Singapore and the Grand Hyatt Tokyo. What you can expect at Pantler is a selection of classic sweet treats, savoury patisseries and contemporary desserts.

A satisfying lemon tart is hard to come by and we are glad that Pantler’s interpretation of the timeless citrus treat – The Citron Blanc (S$8.50++) – has met our expectations.

The Citron Blanc is essentially a shortbread crust encasing smooth tangy lemon curd, topped with fresh fromage blanc white cheese and stained yellow by lemon confit.

whisk cafe lemon tart


Do not underestimate Whisk Cafe’s Lemon Tart (S$5). The thin and tiny tart is jam packed with citrus goodness and every spoonful is a strong burst of lemony flavour. The curd is topped with torched fluffy sweet meringue and encased in cookie-like pastry crust to offset the dessert’s sourness.

Lemon Pie


Windowsill Pies’ Strawberry Lemon Tart (S$7) is unlike any other lemon tarts. The wedge of ultra thick bright yellow zesty curd is filled with traces of strawberry jam filling towards the pâte sucrée crust. Topped with whipped meringue, the refreshing slice has struck a great balance between sugary and tartness.
