3rd April 2024

Best dessert in Singapore


There’s little doubt Singaporeans have a sweet tooth, given the sheer amount of dessert spots in Singapore. From traditional hot and cold desserts to trendy bombolini doughnuts, unique gelato flavours and refreshing towers of shaved ice, there’s a dessert for every sweet tooth and every craving. The next time you’re in the mood for something sweet, we’ve got you covered with our list of where you can find the best dessert in Singapore. 


Cakes and cupcakes


1. Edith Patisserie


edith patisserie jelita - sliced cakes

Cake specialists Edith Patisserie have built their reputation on their customisable birthday cakes, but they’re also a great spot for a slice of cake. Their flavours tend to incorporate Asian ingredients such as pandan, yuzu, and the like. Fans of light, airy sponges and fruit cakes will love their signature Yuzu Osmanthus Slice ($8.50), dressed with a bright yuzu buttercream. Else, enjoy a levelled-up version of Singapore’s classic pandan chiffon cake with their Gluten Free Pandan Slice ($8.50), where layers of fragrant pandan cake meet a gula melaka and salted coconut filling. They have two takeaway outlets, one in Tiong Bahru and another in Holland Village, but you can also enjoy your cakes and other bakes, with a cuppa coffee at their new Dhoby Ghaut cafe. They have keto and gluten-free cakes, and their bakes tend to be lower in sugar overall too!

2. Nesuto


nesuto-flatlay

Nesuto has been around for a while and has amassed a cult following for their delicate Japanese- and French-inspired bakes. If your preferred dessert is a decadent slice of cake, then their flagship along Tras Street is a must-visit. Bestsellers here include their Praline Noisette Gateau ($12.50), Matcha Bavaroise Cheesecake ($12.90) and the Decadent Dark Chocolate ($11.90). If you’re big on chocolate, the last option is a must-order. Each slice comprises layers of Valrhona dark chocolate ganache and a moist chocolate sponge—rich but not too sweet. Nesuto also has entremets, AKA plated French-style desserts, and house-made bonbons available at their cafe. They have also recently expanded to open a second outlet in Jewel, so Easties, rejoice.

3. LUNA


cake-luna-cakes-flatlay

Located along Amoy Street is LUNA, a beautiful cake cafe that’s great for a midday sweet treat in the CBD. Most of their cakes include Asian flavours and ingredients—in fact, their claim to fame was their Orh Nee Cake ($9), which remixes the old-school Teochew dessert with vanilla sponge, coconut chantilly, and a rich yam ginkgo paste. Another one of our faves is the Goma x PB ($9.50), a nutty treat that incorporates black sesame in multiple ways, layered with freshly churned peanut butter. Tarts, entremets, and whole cakes are also available!

4. Fluff Bakery


fluff bakery cupcakes

Halal, Muslim-owned Fluff Bakery has a wide range of sweet treats, from doughnuts to tarts, galettes to cookies, but they’re best known for their cakes and cupcakes. They usually have a range of seasonal flavours offered alongside their bestsellers. We recommend getting their cupcakes for a sweet pick-me-up. You can get one for $4.50, or a box of six to share for $24. The Nutella Red Velvet and Salted Caramel are both perennial faves. The former includes a moist red velvet sponge and a gooey Nutella core, while the latter sees a light sponge paired with a salted caramel middle.

5. Pantler

Image credit: @pantler

Pantler is another Japanese-fusion bakery that is renowned for their cakes. Dig into a slice or two at their minimalistic dine-in cafe along River Valley Road. Fair warning that you’ll be spoilt for choice given how many cakes there are in their huge display case, so to help you along, here are our recommendations. The Strawberry Short Cake ($9.50) is ideal for fans of light, fruity cakes, and is made with prized Chitose strawberries. If chocolatey decadence is your jam, order the Yatsura ($9.80), one of Pantler’s signatures. This layered slice sees an airy hazelnut dacquoise paired with dark chocolate ganache and a crunchy hazelnut feuilletine. Whole cakes are available too.

Doughnuts, cookies and brownies


6. Whiskdom


whiskdom flatlay

Whiskdom skyrocketed to fame when they were just a home-based bakery, and one of the few to bring New York-style levain cookies to Singapore. Since then, they’ve opened several physical outlets islandwide, making their signature thicc cookies and lava brownies more accessible. Their classic Chunky Chocolate Chip Cookie ($6.50) is a time-honoured favourite. You get a thick and chunky cookie with rounds of Belgian chocolate and a molten chocolate middle. As for brownies, try their Matcha Cocoa Brownie ($6.50), where a dark cocoa brownie meets a matcha lava middle to create a dessert that’s bittersweet in the best way possible.

7. Bundt By The Backyard Bakers


BUNDT-by-the-Backyard-Bakers-Brookie-cross-section

Blackout brownies, AKA rich, gooey brownies made with dark cocoa, were a huge trend in Singapore a couple of years ago. And while these brownies are now widely available, you’ll have to thank Bundt By The Backyard Bakers for being the OGs who kicked the trend off in the first place. Their Blackout Brownies start at $6.80 for the classic flavour, and go up to $8.10 for their seasonal specials. Fillings range from Nutella Hazelnut to Whisky Orange & Dark Chocolate. Aside from brownies, they also have Brookies (from $6.40) and an excellent Banana Bread ($6.50). Bundt has two grab-and-go outlets, one in China Square, and another in Jewel Changi.

8. Sourbombe


singapore food festival 2023 - sourbombe box

Sourbombe is arguably the brand that sparked the bombolini craze, and remains one of the best doughnut spots in Singapore. Bombolini, also known as filled Italian doughnuts, is another one of those desserts you can find in many Singaporean bakeries now, but Sourbombe’s offerings are just a cut above, in our opinion. Founded by an ex-MasterChef runner-up, the bakery specialises in sourdough bombolini with unique fillings such as Basque Burnt Cheesecake, Bronte Pistachio, Lavender Lime Mascarpone and more. A single doughnut will set you back $5.60, but they also have curated box sets from $16 for three.

9. The Fat Kid Bakery


fat kid bakery makers market

Another great spot for stuffed sourdough doughnuts is The Fat Kid Bakery, located along Amoy Street. Their grab-and-go outlet offers bombolini in a range of flavours, starting from just $3.80. They also offer coffees, so you can enjoy a pillowy doughnut with a piping hot cuppa. Try their Chocolate Mess ($4.50), loaded with a filling reminiscent of melted chocolate ice cream. If you prefer fruity flavours, the Citrus Bomb ($4.80) is one to try. A tangy calamansi curd is the star of the show here, and makes for quite the refreshing dessert.

10. Frosted by Fang


frosted-by-fang-donut

Frosted by Fang isn’t just your average home-based bakery success story. The now-brick-and-mortar bakery has an impressive and innovative array of desserts, from cakes to doughnuts, crumbles and brownies, mostly priced under $5. A real standout for us was the Coconut, Yuzu Curd & Lychee Mochi Donut ($4), where a chewy doughnut is stuffed with tangy yuzu curd and bits of fresh, juicy lychee. Located in  MacPherson, this hidden gem dessert spot is also currently a one-woman show for the most part, so head down to give them your support!

Tarts and pies


11. Elijah Pies


elijah-pies-sweet

Elijah Pies is well-known for their photogenic, beautiful pies. Formerly only available online, the brand has since opened a standalone dessert cafe in Tanjong Pagar, where you get to tuck into their signature pies as well as other bakes, with a coffee or tea. Their Wild Berry Lavender Pie ($7.90++) is a bestseller and the most recognisable item on the menu, for its swirled yoghurt topper designed to look like pastel blue marble. Another popular pick is their Nutella Pie ($7.50++), a decadent, hazelnut pie with a dark chocolate crust.

12. Patisserie Clé


Patisserie Cle - Flat lay

French-inspired Patisserie Clé made a name for themselves with their signature Orh Blanc Tart ($9.80), a riff on orh nee. Here, you get a buttery crust that encases a lush coconut cream and fresh taro paste filling, topped with candied ginkgo nuts. Aside from the Orh Blanc Tart, Patisserie Clé has a lineup of other pies in both classic and Asian-fusion flavours, from Lemon Meringue ($9.80) to Passionfruit Sesame ($9.80). The dessert cafe is run by two French-trained pastry chess, so you know you’re getting the good stuff. Whole, large tarts are available too. They have two outlets: one in River Valley, and another in Dairy Farm.

Windowsill Pies is one of the OG American-style pie shops in Singapore, having been around since 2011. They have three outlets: Great World, JEM, and Roxy Square, but only their Roxy Square outlet is available for dine-in. They usually have seven different pie flavours to choose from. Their signature Grasshopper Pie ($7.80) is one for fans of chocolate and mint, while their Pecan Pie ($7.80) is nutty and cosy, thanks to the roasted pecan toppings layered atop the butter-brown sugar custard filling. Get single pies or boxes where you can mix and match. Windowsill Pies also sells viennoiserie and biscuits, which are great as gifts.

14. Wunderfolks


wunderfolks-tart-box2

If fruit tarts are your dessert of choice, then head down to Wunderfolks. The bakery sells beautiful tarts at $8, including a wide range of fruit flavours that have become bestsellers. The Mixed Fruit, for example, is a classic, featuring a delicate vanilla custard topped with four types of fruit: peach, grape, strawberry, and blueberry. The Lychee is another crowd fave, where you get a floral lychee cream piped into a buttery shortcrust tart shell. If you want to try a bit of everything, get their box of six for $42, which means each tart becomes just $7. They’re located in Tampines Mall, Lot One, and Bishan Junction 8.

15. Tarte by Cheryl Koh


Tarte by Cheryl Koh Ginger Spice

Les Amis’ award-winning pastry chef Cheryl Koh opened Tarte in 2016 to share the types of tarts she served at Les Amis with the wider public. At their Shaw Centre and Raffles City outlets, you get beautiful artisanal tarts made with fresh, premium ingredients, available for dine-in and takeaway. Given their pedigree, these aren’t the cheapest tarts, with prices starting at $10.80++, but they are worth the splurge. Try their seasonal flavours, which tend to use the best fruits available each season. Otherwise, go for their time-tested classics, such as the Dark Chocolate Tart ($10.80++) and Baked Cheese Tart ($10.80++).

Gelato and ice cream


16. Celine’s Gelato


celines gelato ice cream cafe novena

Celine’s Gelato serves up Italian gelato and waffles, offering diners an experience akin to what they’d get in Italy. They have two dessert spots, one in Novena Regency, and another in Serangoon Gardens. If you want your gelato served from traditional pozzetti, the Italian way of storing gelato, then head down to their Novena outlet, which has the full setup. Prices for their classic flavours start at just $5 for a cup or $5.50 for a cone. Must-try flavours include their Black Sesame and Pistachio ($6.50) gelato, with the latter being a premium flavour.

They have many outlets islandwide, making them a convenient spot for a quick dessert fix. Different outlets have exclusive items, even savoury options, but you’ll always have their bestselling gelato flavours, such as White Chrysanthemum and Hazelnut. Scoops start at $5.50!

Established in 2016, Apiary has earned a reputation as one of the world’s top ice cream spots by The Financial Times. They’re known for their unique ice cream creations, from their namesake Apiary ($4.70), where a honey ice cream is dressed with cocoa nibs, and the Blue Milk ($4.20), where milk ice cream is infused with blue pea flowers, and dressed with a dash of Himalayan pink salt. You can find their dessert cafes in Joo Chiat, Neil Road, and Ang Mo Kio.

Hay Gelato has become a go-to dessert spot for many Easties. Located in both Katong and Bedok, the experimental gelato cafe has out-of-the-box flavours such as Preserved Orange Peel, Balsamic Strawberry, Smoked Hay, and Roasted Cocoa, so you know you’re in for a novel dessert experience here. A single scoop starts at $5, and goes up to $6 for a premium scoop. Enjoy your ice cream alongside a fluffy waffle for an additional $6.50.

20. Kind Kones


Kind Kones - Brownie Sundae

For vegan, all-natural ice cream, you’ve got to visit Kind Kones. The ice cream shop offers a wide range of plant-based flavours beyond just your usual fruity sorbet, alongside other healthier desserts, such as keto cakes, brownies and more. It is pricier than your average daily gelato, as a single scoop starts at $8.80, so we recommend going for their plated desserts such as their Brownie Sundae ($12.50) or Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich ($9) instead. For the price, your choice of ice cream is included.

Burnt Cones is not your average ice cream cafe—here, you get to customise the done-ness of your cone to go with your choice of ice cream. You get to choose three levels of doneness here: Light, Medium, or Dark. They’ve also got quite a selection of flavours you can choose from, including some legit Italian ones such as Fior di Latte and Pistachio, and the crowd fave Ube. Prices start at $5 for a scoop. You can find Burnt Cones primarily in the West, at NUS, NEWest, and Sunset Way.

Their dine-in cafe is located along Haji Lane—just look out for their pastel pink awning and pale yellow storefront. Gelato starts at $4.90 for a single scoop, and you can top-up $6.60 for a buttermilk waffle. Aside from being a halal dessert spot, Momolato also has keto-friendly gelato and waffle options!

23. Dopa 


dopa-creamery-flat-lay

Dopa, formerly known as Dopa Dopa, is our go-to dessert cafe when we want pistachio gelato, as they’ve got one of the best in town. Their signature Roasted Pistachio flavour, priced at $6 for a scoop, is made with Dopa’s house-made roasted pistachio paste. Nutty, earthy, and slightly savoury, this gelato is best paired with their house-made buttermilk waffles ($8). Most of the other gelatos available at Dopa feature nut as the hero ingredient, so if pistachio is not your jam, you can look forward to Maple Pecan ($6), Ferrero ($6) and more. Currently, they have two dine-in cafes, one at South Bridge Road, and another at Tanjong Pagar.

toms-palette-flatlay

One of Singapore’s OG gelato cafes, Tom’s Palette, is known for their kooky flavours. To date, they’ve developed over 180 different gelato flavours, with 120 being on their current repertoire. Flavours change from time to time, though you can find 36 options always available at their Bugis cafe. A single scoop is priced at $5.20 or $9.60 for a double, but if you’re dining with friends, get the Tom’s Palette ($29.80). You get six scoops of gelato, so you get to try a little bit of everything!

Small-batch gelateria Gelatolabo is another gelato spot for unorthodox flavours. A scoop is priced from $5 for their premium flavours, and $6 for their gourmet options. Flavours rotate according to the produce available, but they do have some mainstay offerings we love, including the Bronte Pistachio & Himalayan Pink Salt, and the Roasted Piedmonte Hazelnut & Milk Chocolate Shavings. Pair these with their flavoured Lavender Cone for an additional $1.20!

26. Ami Patisserie


ami patisserie - flatlay

When Ami Patisserie opened, it caused quite a stir amongst Singapore’s foodies. The French-Japanese dessert cafe, housed in a Kyoto-style machiya along Scotts Road, was booked out for months in advance, with patrons clamouring for their omakase menu ($118++), and small-batch baked goods. The hype is not unfounded, given that the cafe is run by Chef Makoto Aramai, who has names like Beige Alain Ducasse and Dominique Ansel Tokyo on his resume. If you’re lucky enough to get a table, expect to be wowed by Makoto’s one-of-a-kind bakes, from his signature Seasonal Fruits Tarte (from $18++) to eye-catching Kuri Mont Blanc ($20++).

House On The Moon offers Singaporean diners a dessert-forward dining menu that’s akin to what you’d get at Bali’s Room4Dessert. Here, choose from their signature plated desserts, which are paired with tea, or go for their extensive dining menu, where plated savouries are complemented by inventive sweets. The former includes desserts such as Not A Blue Cheese ($25++), where blueberry, parmesan, and lemon flavours share the spotlight, while the latter starts from $52++ per person for five courses.

Ms Durian - flatlay

There’s always someone who thinks durian desserts are the best desserts, so if you’re on this team, you’ll love Ms Durian. The specialty durian bakery and cafe have been open for five years now, and have recently relocated to a standalone space in Jalan Besar. We recommend their durian-centric Afternoon Tea Set ($50), which comes with a wide range of durian desserts, from macarons to mousse. Aside from that, they also have plated desserts such as Mao Shan Wang Durian Tiramisu ($18.50), Creme Brulee With Mao Shang Wang Durian Ice Cream ($18.50) and the like.

Located along Wilkie Road, the minimalistic dessert cafe features an open island where you can watch the chef in action. Choose from three dessert omakase tiers here, starting at $48++ per person for their signature Catkin Experience.

30. Mr Bucket Chocolaterie


mr bucket - chocolate desserts

Chocolate lovers, you’ll have to pay a visit to Mr Bucket Chocolaterie, Singapore’s ode to Roald Dahl’s beloved novel. The brand is more known for their bonbons, which are great for gifting, but if you head down to their Dempsey outlet, you’re in for a full-on chocolate cafe experience. From creating your own chocolate bars to tasting sets, you’re in for cocoa overload. We recommend getting a handful of plated desserts to try, each with its own unique percentages of chocolate used. Our favourites include the Dark Chocolate Choux Puff ($10++), where you get a crisp choux pastry shell, and 80% Anaimalai chocolate cream within. Their unique chocolate drinks are also a must. They’ve got quite the range of milkshakes and hot chocolate, but we suggest trying their 72% Single Origin Hot Chocolate ($8++).

Another chocolate-focused dessert cafe is dipndip, located in VivoCity. The franchise is Muslim-owned, and has over 140 outlets in 19 different countries. All of their desserts are known for using premium, private-label Belgian chocolate. Messy-delicious chocolate treats are the name of the game here. Their Pancake Brownie Stack ($19.80++), for example, is drizzled with three types of chocolate sauce, while their Mighty Crepe (from $14.80++) comes blanketed in a milk chocolate sauce. One interesting standout dessert here is the Fettuccine Crepe (from $12.80++), where thin slices of crepes are made to look like fettuccine pasta, and dressed with your choice of chocolate sauce.

Singapore’s OG plated dessert spot, 2am Dessert Bar, is run by celebrated pastry chef and chocolatier Janice Wong. As their name suggests, the bar opens till 2am on most days, making it a great place for a sweet supper. The menu is divided into different signature categories, from frozen to plant-based. If it gets overwhelming, we suggest going for the Chocolate H20 ($22++), where you get a light, aerated frozen dessert made with 65% dark chocolate paired with a yuzu sorbet, and drizzled with a caramel sauce. Drink pairings are available with the dessert as well.

If fatcarons are your idea of a great dessert, then head down to Sweedy Patisserie. They’re known for their chunky, oversized macarons, available in a wide range of flavours, priced from $5 each. Otherwise, try their range of cakes, of which we’d recommend the Mao Shan Wang Mousse Cake ($12.80). Real MSW flesh is used in the mousse, layered with fresh cream and a vanilla sponge.

With a 4.7 Google rating and close to 1,000 reviews, you know Ya Kat Yan delivers the goods. This old-school dessert shop sells an interesting range of hot and cold Chinese desserts, alongside the classics. They’re particularly known for their chendol variations, including their signature Yammy Chendol ($5.50), which comes topped with a dollop of orh nee. Otherwise, try their Durian Purple Rice with Ice Cream ($7.50), a riff on pulut hitam, with a rich durian puree and creamy ice cream. Their flagship outlet is located in Fortune Centre, but they’ve recently opened a second dessert spot at Tan Quee Lan Street.

The dessert menu here is extensive, with a huge selection of local, Chinese, and Taiwanese desserts to pick from, with prices starting at $3.

38. Jin Yu Man Tang Dessert Shop


Jin Yu Man Tang Dessert Shop - Flatlay

Dubbed the trendier Ah Chew Desserts, Jin Yu Man Tang is a dessert cafe along East Coast Road with a menu of 100 hot and cold sweet treats. Their Milk Pudding Series, available hot or cold, is quite a popular pick, with prices starting at just $3.90. For something to cool off on a hot day, try the Peach Gum with Milk and Mango ($5.90), an alternative to the usual mango sago puddings. BTW, the cafe also serves savoury small bites—good to know if you’re dining with loved ones who don’t have a sweet tooth.

39. Chow Zan Dessert


Chowzan dessert cover

White chendol isn’t something we heard of before we dined at Chow Zan, but that’s what they’re best known for. The shaved ice dessert comes with white, instead of pandan, jelly noodles, and a generous amount of rich gula melaka syrup, and is priced from $7.50 for their standard option. We recommend dressing it up with a scoop of D24 Durian Mousse, which will bump the price up to $10.50. Aside from the chendol, they have a range of other hot and cold desserts as well!

Old Amoy Chendol is one of the most popular dessert spots in Singapore. They serve only one thing, Chendol, from $2.50. This focus on one dish means every component in their chendol is executed well, from the 100% cold-pressed coconut milk to the gula melaka sourced from Sarawak. No canned red beans or pre-made pandan jelly here either—everything is made from scratch.

Address: 335 Smith Street, #02-008, Singapore 050335
Opening hours: Mon-Sat 10:30am to 6pm

41. Matchaya


Matchaya, a local matcha dessert chain, is all about celebrating quality matcha across their desserts. We’re huge fans of their Matcha Soft Serve (from $6), which you can add-on toppings to, from mochi to azuki beans. Each scoop is thick, creamy, and bittersweet, thanks to the premium Uji matcha used. Aside from ice cream, they have cakes, pancakes, mochi and more, all made with Japanese ingredients!

42. Ice Lab

Korean dessert spot Ice Lab is best known for their innovative take on bingsu, the Korean shaved ice dessert. Prices start at $9 for their simple Milk Bingsu, but we highly recommend going for their classic Injeolmi Bingsu (from $12) or their towering Dalgona Bingsu (from $11). The bingsu ice is very finely shaved, and almost powdery, so it melts in your mouth extra quickly. Aside from their signature bingsu, Ice Lab also has thick toast desserts! They’ve got two outlets: one in Bugis Village, and another in Jewel.
