Rarely do we come across someone who dislikes chocolate. Chocolate has always been a classic sweet treat that people turn to, whether it’s for indulgence, to satisfy a craving or a gift idea for a loved one.
When it comes to hand-crafted, artisanal chocolate, we all know international brands such as Royce, Lauren Bernard and Godiva. However, did you know that Singapore’s artisanal chocolate-making scene is slowly starting to take off as well?
Here, we have a list of 8 local chocolatiers that you can go to for fresh, unique, handmade chocolates the next time you need your chocolate fix.
Do a quick Google search on chocolates and you will probably find Wimbly Lu either on that list or topping it. Known for their array of chocolate desserts, ice cream and waffles, Wimbly Lu first started off in a quaint neighbourhood of Jalan Riang and now has 2 other outlets in the heartlands of Singapore.
Located just a few doors away from Chye Seng Huat Hardware Coffee, the outlet at Tyrwhitt Road is definitely more accessible as compared to the one at Jalan Riang and the café boasts a cosy decorum that has been remodelled from an old shophouse.
We headed down on a rainy Friday afternoon to seek refuge from the rain as well as to indulge in some sweet treats, to which we were not disappointed.
Those who have tried Royce’ Chocolate will agree with us that no contenders have ever come close to beating this well-known Japanese chocolate brand for its dedication to producing high-quality confectionary and chocolates at reasonable prices.

We are such advocates of their mainstays, such as the legendary Nama Chocolate, the addictive Potatochip Chocolate and the rich Chocolate Bars which are manufactured in Hokkaido for its climate and clean air. When it comes to Royce’, you can be assured only the best chocolate making techniques and ingredients are used to uphold their reputation.
