Cake lovers, rejoice! A new parlour has opened. Located in the heart of Toa Payoh, The Twisted Trio is currently in its soft launch stage, but it is set for a grand opening this Sunday. It is a 5 to 10-minute walk from the MRT.
This new, modern cafe is founded by 3 pastry chefs (with 3 different personalities, thus the name!) who initially worked together before deciding to open their own dessert shop with cakes that cater to all tastebuds.
Conveniently located right opposite Pasir Panjang MRT at the Bijou is another new cafe, The Kins’ Specialty Coffee. Serving up an array of coffee, all-day brunch and other mains, they could be your new spot for a mid-day cuppa during lunch. They are currently in their soft launch phase, so all their food items are 20% off until mid-June!
In addition to their menu of hot food, they serve up a unique treat that isn’t normally found in dessert menus around Singapore: Burnt Cheesecake. Trust us when we say it’s worth the trip down for that alone.
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.
There are endless dessert choices out there in the world but what is it about the tiramisu that makes those with a sweet tooth go crazy over it?

Whatever reason you are thinking of, one thing is for sure—a good tiramisu can do wonders for your mind, soul and appetite.

Do not be confused by the name of this café—Sir Stamford Raffles did not open this café—but rather, the people behind Hatter Street Bakehouse and Café did.

No surprises here—Fresh Fruits Lab (FFL) is our favourite cafe in the East of Singapore. This has never changed since our first visit in 2015.
The themed cafe has seen a revamp recently and it is nothing short of amazing. Still keeping their core laboratory theme and incorporating fruits into their menu, FFL now boasts a colourful, pastel interior that is both whimsical and photogenic.
It has also become a kids-friendly dining outlet with a play corner for your little ones as well as a low-salt kids menu that is so reasonably priced.
How can a cafe make us fall in love so much? FFL always does it best. Here are some of our favourite dishes from its current menu. You need to bring your squad here for your next gathering!
