Bread delivery services during Circuit Breaker
If there’s one thing I really crave for during this Circuit Breaker period, it’s bread. Yes, I can still easily get processed white bread from supermarkets, but I miss freshly baked sourdough and those soft bread buns from neighbourhood bakeries. Hence, I’ve collated a list of bakeries that offer delivery across the island during Circuit Breaker, so all my fellow bread lovers can continue feasting without stepping out of the house.
Breadstory is your typical neighbourhood bakery, with buns ranging from $0.70 to $1.60. Tarts and cakes are available as well. You can WhatsApp them to find out what’s on the menu. There’s a $3 delivery fee for those living in Telok Blangah, and an $8 delivery fee for islandwide deliveries. For the latter, you have to order a day in advance as well. There is no minimum order required.

3. Thai Baang
The first thing that’ll strike your attention is the metal tin that encases every bread bun at Thai Baang. Each bread bun is pillowy soft and hides a generous amount of filling within it.

To get your order processed ASAP, drop a WhatsApp message to 9722 1213 at least one day in advance instead of using their online form.
