Tom’s Palette must be one of the longest-standing local ice cream café in Singapore which churns out their own creative flavours. I remember tat it existed even before the rest such as Island Creamery and Udders came on board.


Wow, 16 years in operations. Those who miss it, the ice cream cafe has relocated to 51 Middle Road (still near Bugis) due to Shaw Towers’ plan for redevelopment.

However, they are adding some finishing touches to their interior, and ice cream is available for pre-order for now.

Fun fact: I learnt how to make ice cream at Tom’s Palette and even documented it here: Recipe of Honey & Pineapple Tart Ice Cream. That was in 2012!

As to why the name Tom’s Palette (I asked years ago), it is because one of their friends who has the pickiest tongue gave the vote of approval to their ice creams.

They are known for their creative gelato flavours, with over 180 flavours to date, including Salted Egg Yolk, Nasi Lemak and Mango Sticky Rice.

Their ice cream is made with fresh and raw ingredients, handmade without the addition of stabilisers, premixes, or artificial flavouring.

Tom’s Palette is re-introducing classics such as Granny’s Favourite (Chocolate Malt, Chocolate Chips & Cookie Dough), Nutella Swirl, Salted Caramel Cheesecake and Yuzu.

I really liked their Salted Egg flavour. Hopefully that soon.

What you can expect include 650ml Takeaway Tubs of made-to-order gelato, and DIY Ice Cream Packs (complimentary with purchase of four tubs for delivery, or two tubs for self-pickups).

Customers who opt for Self-Pickup can enjoy 10% off their order.

Delivery fees are $11 per location, and waived for orders $54 and above. A takeaway tub of 650ml is priced at $18, which can serve approximately five to seven cups.

Flavours are rotating, those available previously include Coconut Sorbet, Dark Chocolate Sorbet, Granny’s Favourite – chocolate malt, cookie dough and chocolate chips, Honey Cinnamon, Milo Dinosaur, Nutella Swirl, Oreo Cheesecake, Parmesan Cheese & Cream Crackers, Salted Caramel Cheesecake, Summerberries, White Chocolate Nori, and Yuzu.
