World-renowned pastry chef Cédric Grolet is opening his first patisserie in Asia and it will be located at Como Orchard this September.
You have probably seen Cédric Grolet’s legendary croissants on social media before. Queues outside the Cédric Grolet Opéra regularly last for hours and you are lucky if you can get your hands on the croissants 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.
Conveniently located in the Tanjong Pagar, Alice Boulangerie is a space which we would consider to be relatively Nordic and minimalistic, with simple wooden and rattan furniture and classy pendant lamps. No frills about its decor, but most definitely cosy enough for some quiet me-time, a simple lunch meeting, a date and a wonderful spot to simply lay back and relax.
With an impressive culinary and baking team, you are set for great food and bakes. We tried quite a few items and nothing actually disappointed us; how impressive! It is most definitely a spot we would return to again and again – whether it is for their hearty mains or stellar bakes.
Le Matin Patisserie is opening a new full-fledged cafe at 77 Robinson Road by mid-April.

All hail Singapore’s official KITKAT® cakes! Local cake boutique Bob The Baker Boy has launched a very exciting collaboration with the household favourite chocolate brand with a series of baked goodies made with KITKAT®, and they got everyone in the team salivating. We were all looking forward to the day of the delivery!
And the cakes totally lived up to our expectations. We know we can always trust Bob The Baker Boy. They are a stalwart in customized cakes and over-the-top birthday cakes, and they are also our family’s go-to bakery whenever we need a cake or two for occasions and celebrations.
Actually, we always tell ourselves we don’t need a reason to eat cakes. With this new collaboration with KITKAT®, this mentality is perfect because birthday or not, have a break, have a KITKAT® cake by Bob The Baker Boy!
