They say sugar is bad for you, but how bad can it be when it tastes oh-so-good? From cheesecakes, mousse cakes and fluffy chiffons to cream-filled eclairs and choux puffs, we just simply can’t resist them!
If you have a sweet tooth that needs to be satisfied, we’ve got you covered. Here’s a comprehensive guide on the Best Patisseries in Singapore to sink your teeth into some indulgent cakes and pastries.
Alice Boulangerie is one cafe-cum-bakery that really left a deep impression on us. In recent times when everyone is trying to outdo one another with trends and patterns, Alice Boulangerie chose to stay classy with honest bakes – ironically, this is what we are lacking in the current climate when everyone is so caught up with fanciful and Instagrammable-everything.
Remember to save some room for desserts and pastries, because everything that comes out from Alice’s pastry team is AMAZING! You will probably need to visit Alice Boulangerie several times to try everything on the menu, but we are telling you it is very well worth the trips.

Originating from the capital of beautiful pastries, Paris, is Angelina. Having served legends like Coco Chanel, you know that they’re worth a visit. Singapore’s Angelina branch is a luxe tearoom serving coffee, tea and delectable pastries, located in Marina Bay Sands.
For a post-shopping treat, take a seat at Angelina to enjoy their signature Mont Blanc (S$13.50). Fluffy whipped cream and meringue is topped with sweet chestnut purée; one of the most delicate desserts you will find in Singapore.

The word ‘chocolate’ has almost become synonymous with our home-grown brand – Awfully Chocolate. At least, it is so for Singaporeans. In the past few years, the brand has grown significantly with many outlets islandwide now, but one thing remains – the awesomeness of their chocolate cakes. That, we will always swear by.

We have Bob The Builder, and we have Bob The Baker Boy who is fond of cakes, especially moist and cottony-soft cakes, which are exactly what you can look forward to when placing an order with Bob The Baker Boy.
You have probably seen Bob The Baker Boy’s customised cakes and dessert tables making their rounds on Instagram and Facebook. There are over 400 designs to choose from. And if you have any particular design in mind for your cake, you can always let the creative team know and they will make your wish come true.

Brunetti, a famous Italian Pasticceria from Australia, serves up some decadent sweet treats. They also offer options for breakfast!
The Pear and Cheese Crumble is one of our favourites – a cheesecake with poached pears, blackberry jam and a chocolate chip biscuit base. For chocolate-lovers, give their Flourless Chocolate Souffle a go. It’s a wonderful blend of dark chocolate and hazelnut bavaroise cream – super rich and delicious.

Helmed and named after the man himself, Chef Yamashita Masataka is a master in creating the most beautiful handcrafted desserts. This is one Japanese patisserie where you can indulge in cakes that will not only feed your belly but your eyes as well.
If you like a fluffier, light and airy cake, their Ichigo (meaning Strawberry in Japanese), will be right up your alley. Despite being a simple strawberry shortcake, it is one of their most popular cakes. For a more indulgent treat, try their sliced matcha roll cake. The matcha flavour is strong even with the cake and cream being so light. It’s even topped with a small ball of mochi!

Ciel Patisserie brings classic French pastry to the table but also takes inspiration from popular local flavours. With a vast array of cakes and pastry, including a gluten-free option, you will never be bored with their sweet selections.
Try their Ondeh Ondeh sliced cake – each bite is filled with the aroma of pandan and the sweet, caramelized flavour of gula Melaka. Another classic would be their Strawberry Shortcake. It is one of the best strawberry shortcakes that we’ve had in Singapore.

CREAM & CUSTARD
Cream & Custard was the patisserie that went viral on Instagram a few years back for their Watermelon Strawberry Cake and other madly instagrammable confections like their Unicorn Poop and Galaxy mirror glaze cakes.
If you haven’t tried their pretty pastries yet, we’ll definitely recommend the cake that started their hype – The Watermelon Strawberry Cake. A whole slice of fresh watermelon is sandwiched between rose-scented cream and layers of chewy almond dacquoise. It’s topped with even more fresh fruits such as strawberries, blueberries and grapes.

DULCET & STUDIO
This Japanese patisserie offers great cakes and pastries. It’s the perfect place to tuck into a sweet midday slice of chiffon (or two). We especially love their Double Cheese Chiffon Cheesecake and their Choux Puffs!
Dulcet & Studio’s cheesecake was super creamy with a slight tang, which toned down the sweetness of the cake. Their choux puffs were also chocked full of milky cream filling. They introduce new flavours of choux puffs from time to time, so expect some surprises when you visit!

You absolutely have to try Flor Patisserie’s Strawberry Souffle. Ultra light vanilla sponge is paired with airy cream filling and topped with fresh strawberries in a sweet glaze. It can be likened to eating a sweet cloud when taking a bite of this cake. One of our favourites, and it will be one of yours once you try it!

Kura offers delectable pastries at reasonable prices. Here, you can indulge in some quality cakes without breaking the bank.
You have to try their Tiramisu and their Lemon Tart. Served in an edible chocolate cup, this Tiramisu is nothing short of delicious with the rich mascarpone cream and espresso-soaked biscuit base. Their Lemon Tart was tangy, sweet and an all around pleasure to eat!

If you decide to dine-in, you can try out their Afternoon Tea Degustation for two. Their set includes a selection of mini eclairs, and savoury pastries and choux puffs. If high-tea isn’t your thing, try their Matcha éclair and their signature Ispahan éclair, made with rose, raspberry and lychee.

Westies rejoice, for there is a patisserie for you all in Jurong! Tucked in the quiet neighbourhood of Jurong East, this minimalist café is a must-visit.
Lee’s Confectionery specializes in French pastry but they incorporate local flavours and various different textures to give your tastebuds an adventure they will never forget. Try their Puff – an earl-grey infused kaya pastry puff sandwich. We loved how the flaky puff pastry fell apart, melding together with the thick kaya.

Nesuto combines French pastry with Japanese technique, executing their pastries with wonderful flair. They specialize in minimalistic designs and flavours, allowing each component in their cakes to shine.
Out of all their pastries, their Jasmine Orient stood out the most. This all white and gold pastry is sleek, beautiful and is a wonderful meld of flavours – Jasmine-infused mousse, Mandarin Orange Confit and Matcha Fudge Sponge.

Established in 2014, Pantler started its original store at Telok Ayer and it is one awesome patisserie that will chase all your Monday Blues away with their gourmet creations. It has recently moved to a bigger space at 474 River Valley Road on 20 Feb 2021. From choux puffs to glazed cakes and croissants, Pantler has them all.
Both their founders had worked in prestigious pastry-making departments – Joel Robuchon Singapore and the Grand Hyatt in Tokyo.
One of their most satisfying desserts was their Yatsura – a signature item on their menu. The cake boasts layers of hazelnut cream, dark chocolate mousse and hazelnut feuilletine. It’s an irresistible cake and will leave you coming back for more.

First established as an online pâtisserie in 2018 by local pastry chefs Germaine Li and Joy Chiam, Pâtisserie CLÉ (clé is French for ‘key’) specialises in French cakes, tarts, and bakes.
The local brand opened its first physical space in Paya Lebar Office and the second outlet will be located in Lucky Heights neighbourhood where fans can get a range of tarts and entremets as well as a new selection of viennoiseries.
Pâtisserie CLÉ is perhaps best known for its Tart Gift Box with a choice of eight tarts and you have to try the signature Orh Blanc Tart which is an interesting fusion of the French Mont Blanc dessert and the local orh nee flavour.

Hidden away in the quiet streets of Kreta Ayer is the tiniest bakery – Sugar Thieves. They are still rather new, but are a strong contender in the pastry scene of Singapore, serving up various pastries and flavours of croissants.
One of their newest creations, the Avo, is a unique spin on an avocado. They use an actual avocado skin to craft this pastry, and it’s layered with chocolate sponge, avocado cheesecake mousse and topped with a macadamia nut praline ‘seed’; An eye-catching dessert that makes you do a double take when you first see it.
