The Mille Crêpe Cake continues to be quite a popular type of cake in Singapore.
The word mille means “a thousand”. While you don’t get a thousand layers in the cake, this implies many layers of crêpe (like very thin pancake) stacked up together.
Most of the crepe cakes in Singapore contain between 10 to 20 layers. Although the components seem straight-forward with layered crepes and pastry cream, the construction is about skills, recipe and flavours.
Here are 10 gorgeous Mille Crepe Cakes you can find in Singapore:
Two Bake Boys Cafe
Rest Bugis Hotel, 8 Jalan Kubor, Singapore 199207
Opening Hours: 10am – 5pm (Mon – Sun)
It first started off as a home-based business in 2020, then a takeaway kiosk at CT Hub 2.
Frequent flyers to Bangkok will remember Audrey Café & Bistro for their Thai Tea Crepe Cake with orangey Thai favourite “cha-yen” infused within.
Their bestseller looks similar to Audrey’s, a Thai Tea Crepe Cake (Slice $7.40, Whole $48) that is served with Thai Milk Tea sauce on the side.
Each layer of crepe cake is hand-made from scratch and takes up to 6 hours to complete as it is labour-intensive to make alternating layers of crepe and fresh cream.
Thai milk tea is infused into each layer of crepe, alongside an accompanying Thai tea sauce to drizzle on it for the extra oomph.
The layers of crepe and so pillowy-soft and moist with fresh cream that is so light and complements well with the crepe. The Thai tea sauce adds a distinctive tea taste, with subtle sweetness that is not overpowering.
181 Orchard Road, Orchard Central #01-27 & #02-07 Singapore 238896

Opening Hours: 11am – 10:30pm (Mon – Sun)
Hard not to mention Lady M if doing a series on Mille Crepe Cake. From the New York Upper East Side (since 2001), its winning Mille Crepe cake has earned many fans.
Flavours include Champagne Mille Crepes, Chocolate Mille Crepes, Green Tea Mille Crepes, Passion Fruit Mille Crepes, Pistachio Mille Crepes, and Rose Mille Crepes. They occasionally feature seasonal flavours such as Sakura Berry and Blueberry Mille Crepes.
The Chocolate Mille Crepe is one of the popular flavours, with twenty paper-thin handmade chocolate crêpes alternated with chocolate pastry cream and a caramelized surface. Rich yet not indulgent.
I also like the Green Tea Mille Crepe in which the sweetness of the pastry cream weds the subtlety of the fine green tea powder on top.
Sinpopo Brand Restaurant – Katong
458 Joo Chiat Road, Singapore 427671
Tel: +65 6345 5034
Opening Hours: 11am – 10pm (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.
Get the Dar Dar Mille Crepe and bask in local flavours inspired by the popular Nyonya dessert kueh dadar (a traditional kueh of sweet coconut pancake).
Unlike kueh dadar where a pandan pancake wraps a grated coconut in gula melaka, this rendition slathers grated coconut tossed in palm sugar and fresh gula melaka cream in between thin layers of pandan crepes.
181 Orchard Road, Orchard Central #01-18, Singapore 238896
Opening Hours: 10am – 10pm (Mon – Sun)
With signature cakes such as The Shortcake, Lemon Tart, Chocolatine, Double Cheesecake, and Classic Souffle Cheesecake, another popular choice is its Mille Crepe Cake.
The slice includes eleven layers of thin hand-made crepe filled with rich-flavoured custard cream and light fresh cream.
The new remodelled version includes a layer of strawberry jam within to provide a slight tangy and fruity taste.

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.

Its Chocolate Mille Crepe is made from about 20 layers of dark chocolate crepes, with silky dark chocolate cream in between.
Matchaya – The Cathay
The Cathay, #01-08/09, 2 Handy Road, Singapore 229233
Opening Hours: 10am – 10pm (Mon – Sun)
Matchaya has transformed over the years from a takeaway kiosk to a teahouse that encourages interaction the tea masters and the patrons, much like cafes these days with a pourover bar.
Their Mille Crepe Cakes come in 2 different flavours: Black Sesame ($8.50) or Lavender Earl Grey ($9).
I was quite skeptical about the latter flavour as it might turn out smelling like a perfume or the air-freshener in my toilet.
The Lavender Earl Grey ($9) turned out to be a surprise (and not in a shocking bad way), with very moist cream in between the soft, delicate layers of crepe.
The lavender smell was subtle and not overpowering, yet the earl grey taste is still detectable.
Note that the Crepe Cakes are currently unavailable at Matchaya, but they will soon be introduced back again.
