Home to an enclave of mouth-watering cafes and restaurants, Serangoon Gardens is a foodie heaven second to none in Singapore. With new eateries popping up here so often, it is undoubtedly the perfect place to bring out the glutton in you!
The Larder Café first started in Toa Payoh in 2016 and they have recently opened another new outlet in Serangoon Gardens, taking over the premise of the now-defunct Arbite which closed down after 9 years.
Boasting a plethora of mains, brunch, big bites and desserts, you can expect to be torn between their delectable options. There’s even alcoholic drinks and a kids’ menu!
Located at 313 Somerset is LaLune Croissant. With the current craze over bubble tea and pretty pastries, LaLune is set to wow you with their colourful array of drinks and croissants full of delicious fillings.
LaLune’s drinks have zero preservatives and artificial flavouring, only using freshly-brewed teas and all-natural fruits. Their little tea bottles also add a wonderful touch being so compact.
Did we mention LaLune was opened by a local NTU graduate? It’s a great time to #SupportLocal with so many big franchises from overseas popping up in Singapore.
Joining in on the soufflé pancake trend is Fluff Stack that sits on the basement of the newly renovated F&B section of Suntec City. Pretty in pink with gold accents, the decor of the cafe is as pretty as the pancakes.
But one thing that definitely sets Fluff Stack apart from other soufflé pancake cafés has got to be the price point. While soufflé pancakes tend to be priced at a premium, we love that the ones here start from S$8.80 which is pretty affordable!
When King Albert’s Park is mentioned, people normally think of the good ol’ days when McDonalds occupied the area. However, now, the place has been completely revamped into an up-and-coming mall space.
Just a walk through King Albert’s Park Mall, you will see several cafes and restaurants, including a new cinema. One such place that caught our eye was the sleek and simple Camaca cafe.
Camaca is a sugar-free dessert cafe, serving up indulgent treats that come without the guilt, along with a wide selection of single-origin coffees.

Peanut butter. Fitness junkies consider it a superfood high in healthy fats, never failing to include it in their protein shakes, smoothies and morning toast while others—like us—appreciate it for its sinful appeal. Adding it into a dessert or even a dish provides a heightened butteriness accented with a nutty flavour that is just pure bliss.
As a flavour of ice cream, on pancakes, layered into a decadent chocolate cake or even slapped on a savoury beef burger, here is our list of peanut butter-laden dishes in Singapore loaded with nutty, buttery goodness. You’ll fall in love #3 in a heartbeat.
For the love of all things sticky, sweet and sinfully irresistible, Malaysia’s smoky, caramel-edged gula Melaka ranks high on our list of desserts worth skipping gym time for. Before the Europeans introduced cane sugar to our part of the world, we relied heavily on palm sugar.
Depending on the quality of the palm, and how it is pressed, different varieties of gula Melaka may exude different flavour profiles. Sourness, smoke, caramel, butterscotch, coffee, or even a combination of those flavours. A complex sweetener with a myriad of nuanced flavours, we just love it in everything.
Here are 15 places in Singapore where you can find gula Melaka desserts worthy enough to make you want to skip gym day.
Acai is one of those superfoods that, besides being delicious and “Instagrammable”, is widely lauded by for its multiple health benefits. Jam-packed with antioxidants, fibre, vitamins and minerals with supposedly anti-cancer and brain-boosting effects, acai bowls are hugely popular among both the hipster and fitness community.
Nestled amidst the lush greenery of Singapore Botanic Gardens, JUJU is a takeaway kiosk that serves a myriad of healthy, wholesome food on-the-go. Their acai bowls, in particular, stand out for being 100% plant-based without the use of any refined sugars and whatnot.
Whether you’re looking for a guilt-free dessert after sweating it out at Singapore Botanic Gardens the entire morning or just a rejuvenating, ice-cold dessert to enjoy as you explore the park, JUJU—located over at the Visitor Services Kiosk—will surely have you well sorted.
