Lickety has won the hearts of many after flooding Instagram with their colourful egglet desserts and bright pastel-themed decor. Try out their Plain Egglet Waffle ($4.50) or Single Scoop Egglet Waffle ($8.90), which comes with a huge scoop of ice-cream and a topping of your choice, such as Fruity Pebbles or Pocky sticks. Get their red velvet or buttermilk-flavoured egglet waffle, but if you’re torn between the two, a half-and-half is available. As for ice-cream, they have a variety of flavours you can choose from, such as Horlicks, coconut, snickers, and sea salt caramel.

Konditori is a hidden gem at Bussorah Street selling European pastries. Considered their signature bread, Semla Bun ($7.90) is sold for a limited quantity every day so get it before it runs out. It is a soft bun filled with a generous amount of sweet cream that will make you want more. If buns aren’t your thing, try out their Blackforest Croissant ($5.90), which is a flaky buttery goodness filled with tangy raspberry compote and topped with bittersweet shaved chocolate.

You can’t go wrong with their signature flavours such as Red Velvet ($4) and Salted Caramel ($4) as well.

Wilder sells hearty brunch dishes as well as desserts. While they have a wide range of sweet treats, most are on rotation, so you may not see the same things on different visits. Their Ondeh Ondeh Cake is layered with a thick layer of gula melaka paste and dusted with a generous amount of coconut shavings – a great option for those with a sweet tooth. Alternatively, they might also have Speculoos Cake and Thai Milk Tea Cake when you happen to drop by for a meal. Their bakes are usually priced below $10, so cross your fingers and hope the ones you like are available when you visit!
