20 Best Patisserie And Cake Cafes In Singapore

Kki Sweets
3 Seah Street, #01-01, Singapore 188379
Tel: +65 9799 2668
Opening Hours: 11am – 7pm (Wed – Sat), 11am – 5pm (Sun), Closed Mon, Tues

Husband and wife pair Kenneth and Delphine gave up their daily jobs to set up this characteristic desserts patisserie café, which has moved several times (also a few years’ break before).

This time Kki Sweets takes on a different form and style, located at Seah Street on the ground level of Raffles Hotel.

What remains is their persistence to the quality of cakes, and their Japanese style in curating and decorating the place – cream-coloured walls, wooden furniture, in minimalist approach.

The cakes have cute names, and you can make a guess of its components – Marronnier ($9.50), “J” ($13.50), Koide ($10.50), Arata ($10.50), Teh ($9.50), and Fromage ($13.50), all on a rotational basis.

My favourite was easily “J” ($13.50) coming like a dainty pot of plant.

Be careful about touching the ‘pot’ directly because it is actually a base of black sesame made of kantan jelly, filled with matcha, yuzu and chocolate soil.

The matcha and goma combination has always expectedly delectable, but what really worked was that excitement of various textures from the rich creamy layer (almost reminding me of cheesecake), crunchy soil, along with smooth covering. Kki Sweets (Seah Street)

Le Matin Patisserie
10, Block B Raeburn Park, #01-25, Singapore 088702
Opening Hours: 8am – 5pm (Wed, Fri – Sun), Closed Mon, Tues, Thurs

Singaporean Chef Mohamed Al-Matin trained at Le Cordon Bleu Sydney, and worked at some of the renowed patisseries there including Adriano Zumbo Patisserie and Black Star Pastry.

He was also previously the Head Pastry Chef of Restaurant Andre, and was also Pastry Sous Chef at one of the best restaurants in the world – Noma. An impressive resume.

To try his croissants, you can either head to the test kitchen on specific days, or get a Matin Pastry Box which comes with 5 or 6 pastries baked fresh daily.

For example, the The Le Matin Basics ($32 per box): Grand Matin contains 5 pastries of Croissant, Almond Croissant, Kouign Amann, Pain Au Choc, and Pistachio Escargot.

The classic Croissant is the traditional plain croissant laminated with French AOP butter. Though the more impressionable one would be the Pain Au Chocolat stuffed with luscious Valrhona dark chocolate and finished with a shiny Dark chocolate belt.

Baker’s Brew Café
Orchard Paragon, 290 Orchard Road #05-46 Singapore 238859 (Orchard MRT)
Tel: +65 6909 0669
Opening Hours: 10:30am – 8pm (Mon – Sun)

The Ondeh Ondeh Cake has become one of Singapore’s most popular trending cake that we can proudly say has local origins.

And Baker’s Brew offers one of the best versions around, plus it is not that sweet. Ah, that moist pandan sponge along with fragrant gula melaka and desiccated coconut.

The flavours of coconut are extended to its pastel green and white buttercream icing, and toasted coconut and coconut cookie toppings.

The special Ondeh Ondeh balls complete the look of Baker’s Brew’s best-selling signature cake.

Other than the Ondeh Ondeh Cake, there are many noteworthy “Classic Cakes” offered including Roasted Pistachio and Rose Cake, Matcha Azuki Cake, Salted Caramel Chocolate Cake, Classic Basque Cheesecake, and Dual Fromage. Bakers’ Brew

Tel: +65 6221 6223
Opening Hours: 10:30am – 6:30pm (Tues – Sun), Closed Mon

“Pantler” is word used to define “a servant or officer in charge of the bread and the pantry in a great family”.

The new River Valley space is actually made up of two units, combined into one.

Half is the kitchen where all their products are made from scratch, and the other half is the retail and dining space.

The bigger kitchen is to accommodate producing over 20 varieties of cakes and pastries, and other baked and packaged items such as cookies, sweets, jams, and chocolate.

Pantler’s Head Chef is Tomoharu Morita, who was part of the award-winning pastry team at Grand Hyatt Tokyo for close to a decade. Chef Tomoharu was also part of the opening team for Joël Robuchon Singapore.

If you are looking out for the new stuff, they are the Raspberry Pistachio ($9.50), Russa ($9.50), Gianduja ($9.50) and Ivory ($9.50). Pantler (River Valley)

53 Amoy Street, Singapore 069879
Opening Hours: 12pm – 6:30pm (Sun – Thurs), 12pm – 7pm (Fri – Sat)

LUNA patisserie at Amoy Street known mouth-watering cakes and pastries, has also launched a number of new buttery tarts in their menu.

Not to be confused with Lunar Coffee Brewers (OUE Downtown Gallery) and Luna Cafe (One North), LUNA is a patisserie located near Amoy Street Food Centre.

While its menu changes periodically according to the seasons, best-sellers still available continue to be the popular Orh Nee Cake ($8 per slice, $80 per whole cake) with velvety yam ginko paste and yam cubes; LUNA 2.0 ($9 for entremet, $90 for cake) made of Valrhona Guanaja 70% chocolate mousse; and Matcha Opera ($8 for slice, $80 for whole cake).

The Orh Nee was my favourite of the selection, made of pumpkin sponge layered with a mixture of yam and ginkgo paste.

The surprise came from the textural contrast in the yam and ginkgo paste, a mixture of smooth and velvety puree and bite-sized chunks of yam.

The Orh Nee is then topped with whipped cream frosting and dollops of yam cream with a touch of desiccated coconut that enhanced its sweetness. LUNA Singapore (Amoy Street)

Tigerlily Patisserie
350 Joo Chiat Rd, Singapore 427598
Opening Hours: 9am – 6pm (Tues – Sun), Closed Mon

Tigerlily Patisserie has finally shifted from an online bakery to a brick-and-mortar dine-in shop at Joo Chiat.

It was created to offer baked goods with unconventional flavours, using fine European techniques injected with an Asian spirit.

A wide selection of pastries was on display, ranging from interesting and unique savoury options such as Tomato & Artichoke Tart ($7), Asparagus & Leek Tart, Mushroom Bacon Quiche and Garlic Herb & Cream Cheese Babka ($8).

Their uniqueness is the various herbs infused within their pastries such as Chitose Strawberry & Elderflower Tart ($11), Lemon Thai Basil Tart ($8), The Beehive ($11) infused with lemon thyme and Pink Guava & pear ($10) made of elderflower mousse.

The most eye-catching dessert would probably be The Beehive ($11), made from lemon thyme and litchi honey jelly and light lemon sponge encased in a globe-shaped honey parfait, further topped with swirls of yuzu mousse in honeycomb pattern.

This is an intricate piece of art, beautifully crafted visually with a well-balanced sweetness and citrus-ness, light and refreshing without being overwhelming on the palate. Tigerlily Patisserie (Joo Chiat)

Patisserie CLÉ
79 Lucky Heights, Singapore 467627
Opening Hours: 9:30am – 6:30pm (Mon, Wed – Sat), 9:30am – 5pm (Sun), Closed Tues

The duo owners Joy Chiam and Germaine Li first met while learning pastry-making at Ferrandi Paris.

Upon graduation, Joy subsequently worked at the former Joël Robuchon Restaurant whereas Germaine Li joined Tarte by Cheryl Koh (and thus some resemblance in the creations) before opening their first brick-and-mortar shop in 2020 at the historic Paya Lebar Office (formerly Paya Lebar Fire Station).

Here at Lucky Heights with a bigger kitchen, the shop is able offer artisanal coffee and a wider variety of bakes such as outlet-exclusive pastries which is a look back at their French culinary roots.

Opening Hours: 9:30am – 6pm (Tues – Sun), Closed Mon

For fans of Chef Juwanda Hashim’s bakes, yes, he is back fabulous again at Aliwal Arts Centre – a short walk from Arab Street.

The bakery cafe used to be located at Fort Canning.

His cake style is classic layered, known to be moist, with some interesting experimentations in terms of frosting.

Signatures include Valrhona Chocolate Cake ($9.50), Nutty Monkey ($9.50) which is a banana coconut cake, Raspberry Lemon ($9), and Green Tea Praline ($9.50).

Some of the cakes are cheekily named, such as a 10-layered butter torte hazelnut praline cake called “The Hossan Leong” ($11). The Fabulous Baker Boy (Aliwal Street)

Sinpopo Brand

Tel: +65 6345 5034
Opening Hours: 11pm – 9pm (Mon – Sun)

By the team behind Awfully Chocolate, Sinpopo Brand manages to spruce up traditional kueh recipes with modern presentations.

Think Pandan Kaya Cake, Gula Melaka Cake, Pulut Hitam Cake, Dar Dar Mille Crepe and Putu Piring Cake – familiar nostalgic treats of well-loved local flavours made into cake forms.

Newer items include Basque Burnt Cheesecake, mouth-watering Tres Leche Cake, Sticky Date Pudding, delectable Lemon Yoghurt Cake, and Matcha Crème Brulee Cake.

The Pandan Kaya Cake is a hybrid of pandan chiffon cake and kaya toast, this handmade gluten-free cake is made of glutinous rice flour.

Inspired by the tiered dessert kueh salat, the cake is tinged with a beautiful natural blue from Blue Pea flowers, often used in Peranakan cuisine.

In between the cake layers is the luscious slow-cooked slow-stirred pandan kaya spread and fresh coconut cream.

What I really like about this cake is that you get a bit of that fluffy chiffon and creamy nostalgic kaya coming together – a blend of two favourite cakes coming together. Best to go with a cup of teh-o kosong. Sinpopo Brand (Katong)

FLOR Patisserie East Coast
53 Upper East Coast Road, Singapore 455214
Opening Hours: 11am – 7pm (Tues – Sun), Closed Mon

Fans of Japanese-style cakes and pastries will be familiar with FLOR Patisserie with 2 other outlets at Duxton Hill and Capitol Singapore. Their Siglap outlet works as their central kitchen.

Using mainly fresh fruits which are lighter in flavour than conventional French pastries, locally-grown brand FLOR Patisserie doesn’t use artificial colourings or chemical agents in their cakes.

Customers can choose from a wide selection of Tofu Chiffon ($15), Tea Capsules ($17 – $21), Cheese Tart (1 for $5, 10 for $45) and baking equipment.

The Paris Vert ($8.90) comes with matcha cream and Azuki cream, encased within a match meringue and matcha sponge.

I enjoyed the soft, light and airy texture whereas the matcha taste was on the fainter side. Flor Parisserie (Upper East Coast Road)

Nuage Patisserie & Boulangerie
47 Kampong Bahru Road, Singapore 169361
Opening Hours: 11am – 6pm (Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri), 8:30am – 5pm (Sat – Sun), Closed Wed

Nuage, pronounced as “nu-age”, means “cloud” in French and is a representation of the owners ideology in being carefree without restrictions in their bakes and pastries.

It is opened by three friends, two of them were home-bakers whereas the other has experiences as a Head Pastry Chef at a local Five-stars hotel.

Their cakes menu is on a rotating basis and there were Pistachio Strawberry ($9.20), Strawberry Popcorn ($9.80), Brown Sugar Boba ($9.60), Blueberry Cheesecake ($8.50) and Elmo/ Cookie Monster Cupcake ($6.50).

My favourite was the Brown Sugar Boba ($9.60) with a brown sugar Swiss roll sandwiched between 2 butter cookies.

Remove the butter cookies to reveal the soft and fluffy brown sugar sponge, generously piped with brown sugar Chantilly and brown sugar boba that gives it a nice contrast in textures. Nuage Patisserie & Boulangerie (Kampong Bahru)

Dolc Patisserie
67 Kampong Bahru Road, #01-00, Singapore 169371
Opening Hours: 9am – 6pm (Mon, Wed – Sat), 10:30am – 5pm (Sun), Closed Tues

Specialising in French techniques with modern flavours and incorporating influences from Spain, Dolc Patisserie wants to introduce a piece of Barcelona in their pastries to the locals.

It also hopes to provide a familiar taste of hometown to the Spanish expats residing in Singapore.

The desserts display features their current selection of the day, ranging from Fruit Tart ($8+) to Bananier ($8+) made from chocolate and banana, Elsie ($8.50+), Passionfruit Meringue ($7.50+), Charlotte ($8.50+), chocolate with coffee Royale ($8.50+) and Mango Shortcake ($8+).

It was indeed rewarding and therapeutic to look at these pretty and dainty desserts that are beautifully crafted.

I ended up with the velvety red Charlotte ($8.50+) made of Strawberry, Basil and Mascarpone.

Appearance-wise, the Charlotte reminded me of the Mango Mousse Spring cake from Two Bakers, except that the latter is yellow in colour. Dolc Patisserie (Kampong Bahru)

41 Kreta Ayer, Singapore 089003
Opening Hours: 11am – 7pm (Mon – Sat), Closed Sun

After 2 years, the team behind Olivia Restaurant & Lounge has finally opened a standalone cake shop for their signature cheesecake, QUIEC, just one street away from their sister outlet at Keong Saik.

Their signature Olivia Burnt Cheesecake can be found here at QUEIC in various sizes: 4” ($15), 6” ($48) and 9” ($78).

I remembered vividly how distinctive and remarkable Olivia’s version is, using Valdeon cheese (a Spanish blue cheese made from a blend of goat and cow milk) that give it a savoury note, on top of an almond sable base that is firm and crisp, before scorching the top layer to add a caramelised touch.

More like a pie instead of the cake due to the almond sable base, the result is a semi-molten cheesecake at room temperature, creating a myriad of textures from the oozy cheese to the crazy caramelised layer and the crunchy almond sable base.

There is a nice balance of sweet and savoury notes due to the Valdeon cheese used, intense but not overpowering, slightly salty and pungent, with a complex combination of flavours. QUEIC (Kreta Ayer)

TripleOne Somerset, 111 Somerset Road #01-K1, Singapore 238164
Opening Hours: 8am – 6pm (Mon – Sat), Closed Sun

There are not many indie cafes along Orchard Road and it is always welcoming to see a new cake cafe appearing in town.

Diners can look forward to their signature Jardin ($8.50 per piece, $65 for whole 6 inches cake), a strawberry shortcake which was the very first cake created on the menu.

Named after a vibrant and beautiful town in the mountains of Colombia, the word “Jardin” means “Garden” in Spanish, reflected in the slices of strawberries neatly layered in between the sponge and cream.

Probably one of the most memorable strawberry shortcake I had eaten of late, the sponge layer was memorably soft and moist, with a milky taste light and refreshing.

The layered strawberry slices added a citrus punch to the overall taste, a pleasant contrast in textures to the fluffy cake. GLAZE (313@somerset)

Edith Patisserie Cake Bar
UBS at 9 Penang Road, #01-06, Singapore 238459
Opening Hours: 12pm – 8pm (Mon, Wed, Thurs), 12:30pm – 9pm (Fri – Sun), Closed Tues

Edith Patisserie is named in memory of the owner Ethel’s mother, who passed away when Ethel was 18 years old.

Being a home-grown bakery established in 2013, they specialise in layered cakes, brownies and tarts for birthdays, weddings and other celebratory events.

Their aim is to create something new and original according to local palate and I remembered buying their Original, Matcha and Thai Milk Tea Boba Tarts when they first launched it few years ago.

Their cake shelf features a wide selection of their bestsellers: Cookie Dough Speculoos Chocolate ($8), Mango Pomelo ($8), Lychee Rose ($8) and Earl Grey Lavender ($8).

Other cakes on display include Pandan Coconut Gula Melaka ($8), Classic Chocolate ($8), Thai Milk Tea ($8), Raspberry Passionfruit ($8), Chocolate Praline Passionfruit ($8), Mini Yuzu Strawberry Loaves ($5), Mini Lemon Loaves ($4.30) and Brownies ($1.70).

My favourite was the Lychee Rose Cake ($8) made using alternating layers of vanilla Swiss sponge and rose-scented buttercream – very floral and fragrant. Edith Patisserie Cake Bar (Penang Road)

204 Jalan Besar Singapore 208890
Opening Hours: 11:30am – 8:30pm (Tues – Thurs), 11:30am – 10:30pm (Fri – Sun), Closed Mon

LA VIE is conceptualised on the idea of providing people with a place to enjoy fine pastries, drinks, art appreciations – you will see hanging paintings of rotating local artists on sale.

The business was previously known as Reverie Patisserie, an online patisserie shop specialising in various French pastries and butter cookies.

The name means “life” in French (minus the predictable ”en Rose”).

One of the reasons for adopting this French name is because the Head Pastry Chef and founder was trained in the famed Le Cordon Bleu academy specialised in French pastry.

Some of the signature dessert items include Chloe ($8.50) – a lychee rose entremet, Kaiser ($9) – a mango and passionfruit entremes, Alfie ($9) – a chocolate banana entremet, and Trio Chocolate Cake ($10) – the other one without the fancy name.

I went with the pretty-looking Watermelon Strawberry Cake ($9.50), with fresh sliced watermelon sandwiched between layers of rose chantilly and nutty almond dacquoise. La Vie (Jalan Besar)

The Twisted Trio
Blk 85C Lorong 4 Toa Payoh #01-384 Singapore 313085
Opening Hours: 12pm – 5:30pm (Tues – Sat), Closed Mon

The Twisted Trio was started by three friends that have known each other since young, serving a range of cakes and coffee.

However, do note that this is a space that is more catered towards takeaways. What I heard is, best-sellers have been flying off their shelves like hot keks.

However, there is a small corner at the cafe that can accommodate 3 customers.

The first item that caught my eye was the Watermelon Rose Cake ($8).

You can see a distinct layer of watermelon sandwiched right in between, topped with a generous number of grapes and strawberries.

Add a couple of sprinkles of pistachios and you have a dessert that is worthy to be put on your Instagram feed.

First bite in and you can taste the distinct floral notes of the rose. The watermelon added a nice texture to the entire cake. Do not worry about the calories because this cake is one of the less sweet ones I have had in a while. The Twisted Trio (Toa Payoh)

Lee’s Confectionery
343 Jurong East Street 31, #01-59, Singapore 600343
Tel: +65 9183 8447
Opening Hours: 12pm – 7pm (Mon, Thurs – Sun), Closed Tues, Wed

Lee’s Confectionery has attracted a lot of attention on social media, and it certainly has grabbed mine with its visually satisfying in-house made pastries.

Located near Chinese Garden MRT, the confectionery serves roughly 6 to 7 different types of tarts, with some varieties available on a rotational basis.

The best-seller here is the Dale ($8), which includes matcha included 4 ways – in a sponge, as crumble, matcha mousse, passionfruit compote with seeds on a tart sprinkled with… matcha powder.

A refined and polished version with multiple different textures.

Soft sponge cake, crispy crumble, creamy mousse, crunchy passionfruit seeds and sturdy tart base. Lee’s Confectionery (Jurong East)

The Better Half
1 Everton Park, #01-43, Singapore 081001
Tel: 9248 7088
Opening Hours: 10am – 4pm (Tues – Sun), Closed on Mon

Established by two passionate individuals who also happens to be each other’s better half, the café aims to serve honest and real fare to everyone who visits.

The bakes are placed in the shop exudes a certain Korean bakery vibe – kind of what you see in Layered 레이어드 or Cafe Highwaist.

All the bakes you see in The Better Half all made from scratch in-house. Even if you order a toast, the bread is made within the store and not from a supplier.

While I was thinking of what to get, the owners kindly suggested a slice of Rose Raspberry Cake ($8) which they were just about to display.

Essentially a rose sponge cake with raspberry cream cheese, the cake was fluffy in texture and not dry at all. The Better Half (Everton Park)

Sugar Thieves
BLK 333, Kreta Ayer Rd, #01-23, Singapore 080333

(Changed to online concept)

With a great variety of pastries lined up against the glass window like a well curated dessert table, many passersby cannot help but whipped out their phones to capture an Instagram shot.

The first dessert that caught my attention was the Strawberry Watermelon Cake ($8,90).

Other choices include Matcha Strawberry Roll ($7.90), Chai Latte Reindeer Tart ($8.90), Sticky Date Bundt ($5.50), Coffee Frosting on Carrot Bundt Cake ($6.90) and the only savoury item Kimchi Tuna Quiche.

The cutest looking pastry goes to the Chai Latte Reindeer Tart ($8.90), made up of chocolate sponge, salted caramel goo and specula’s crumbs to give it a sweet and savoury taste with a crunch.

With a rotating menu every 3 months due to the seasonal produce used, we can expect more tasty bakes from Caleen and her team in the upcoming months. Sugar Thieves (Kreta Ayer Road)


KURA Singapore
46 Kim Yam Road, The Herencia #01-07 Singapore 239351
Tel: +65 9722 2996
Opening Hours: 11am – 6pm (Mon – Sun)

KURA 蔵 in Japanese stands for a “storehouse”, a place where the owners would ‘store’ treasured pastries for customers.

Some of their signature offerings include the Key Lime Tart ($4, $7.5), Earl Grey Tart ($8), Dark Black Forest ($8.50), Uji Triple Matcha Tart ($4.60, $8.50), Kopi Gao Tiramisu ($8), Hojicha Tiramisu ($8) and even a Mango Pomelo Tart ($9).

The Dark Black Forest ($8.50) which is a contemporary twist on nostalgic flavours comes recommended.

While it didn’t look like a black forest cake at all, it kept its ‘cherried’ essence within, and I enjoyed the soft chocolatey mousse-like texture. Kura (Kim Yam Road)
