Breads and pastries are staples that everyone can appreciate, and we all love eating them fresh out of the oven.
The great thing about living in Singapore is that there are so many different kinds of bakeries – from traditional to artisanal options. All the different kinds of breads and pastries are mostly baked fresh daily in-house and are oh-so-delicious!
Breads are good for any time of the day. Some of the best bakeries in Singapore go the extra mile in the baking and preparation process, some even creating wonderful unique creations that are impossible to resist.
Here are 11 Best Artisanal Bakeries in Singapore - places that we rely on when we need our fresh bakes fix.
ARTISAN BOULANGERIE CO.
Artisan Boulangerie Co. (or ABC) has various outlets island-wide in very convenient locations, and we always end up at ABC. The bakery-cum-cafe serves a great mix of French-style pastries and classic bread options.
You can even grab brunch or meal options at some of these outlets, while sipping on a fresh cup of latte. We are especially fond of the buttery croissants and eclairs here.

Other options that you can pick from artisanal bakery Bread & Hearth are brioche buns, cream cheese sesame buns and more.

Serving up some of the most beautiful creations, the bakes offered at Pantler is of another level. We were amazed by the intricacy and dedication to each individual serving, and the tastes do not disappoint too.
