16 Donut Shops For Milo Dinosaur Doughnut, Ondeh-Ondeh Bombolini And More

18th August 2022

Best donuts in Singapore


I grew up with a serious love for donuts—or doughnuts if you will—thanks to the bakery below my HDB block. These sugar-studded rounds were a treat for sitting through tuition classes or helping out with household chores, so it’s no surprise that come adulthood, passing by a local donut shop sends the reward centre of my brain firing in all happy directions.

Nowadays, doughnuts are returning to the spotlight in Singapore thanks to a growing number of local bakers, both on and offline. These are not your international franchises either, but homegrown specialty stores that push out ever-inventive flavours. From Singapore-inspired flavours such as Milo Dinosaur to unique takes on stuffed bombolini made with sourdough, here are some of the best donuts in Singapore.


1. Burnt Ends Bakery

Michelin-starred restaurant, Burnt Ends, has been having great success with its sister concept, the Burnt Ends Bakery, thanks to their Milo Dinosaur Doughnuts ($30 for six). Brioche doughnuts are filled with silken Milo cream, then topped with a Milo biscuit for crunch. They also sell other flavours, including Plain ($24 for six), Passionfruit Curd ($30 for six), Nutella ($30 for six) and Vanilla Cream ($30 for six). Walk-ins are available from Thursday to Sunday, 8pm to 4pm, but it’s recommended for you to pre-order online as they tend to sell out early.

2. City Donut

Housed along Telok Ayer, City Donut is a specialises in doughnuts made with a local twist. Their bestseller is the Pandan Ondeh-Ondeh ($2.80), where fragrant pandan dough meets a sticky gula melaka glaze and coconut filling, though I personally am a big fan of the Orh Nee ($2.50), and the Pulut Hitam ($2.20), both of which taste so close to the desserts they nod to.

Check out our full review of City Donut.

Opening hours: Mon-Tue, Sat 9am to 6pm, Wed-Thurs 9am to 10:30pm, Fri 9am to 11pm

3. Doughnut Shack 


Doughnut Shack - Menu

For doughnuts overloaded with a generous amount of filling, head to Doughnut Shack, a short walk from Farrer Park MRT Station. Best known for their bombolone (Italian for “stuffed doughnuts”), Doughnut Shack has flavours such as Black Forest, Banana Fritters, Creme Brulee, and Black Sesame. Prices start at $3 per doughnut, which is a steal compared to other famed bombolini speciality stores. Their flavours rotate monthly, so be sure to check their Instagram for more details.

4. Korio


Korio - Donut flavours

Korio is famed for two things: grilled cheese sandwiches, and their Brooklyn-style brioche doughnuts. The small hole-in-the-wall cafe features a selection of flavours daily, all from $4.50. Flavours here are rather unique; think Cinnamon Sugar with Whipped Honey Butter ($5.50), and Honey with Smoked Sea Salt ($5.50).

Pop by the next time you’re in the CBD for a quick pick-me-up. They collect pre-orders on their website too and have delivery islandwide. Do note that their doughnuts are available from Tuesdays to Fridays from 10am onwards.

5. Nassim Hill Bakery

The Brioche Bombolinis ($3.80) at Nassim Hill Bakery are a signature, and one bite is all it takes to know why. The dough is light as a feather and discernibly buttery, given that fine French Elle et Vire butter is used. The filling-to-bread ratio is, for a lack of a better word, gao gao too. Pick from their popular Kaya, with pandan coconut jam made in-house, or the ooey-gooey Chocolate, or mix and match both. You can pre-order them for takeaway or delivery here, or get them at the bakery itself as you enjoy their brunch fare, though head down early as they tend to sell out. 

Address: 56 Tanglin Road, #01-03, Singapore 247964
Opening hours: Tues-Sun 8am to 10pm

6.  Fluff Bakery

Fluff Bakery is one of the OG halal bakeries specialising in cupcakes, having been around since 2013. They have since moved to a relatively new location along North Bridge Road, and expanded their menu to include fresh bakes such as galettes, savoury flatbreads, and doughnuts.

We loved their Mandarin Orange Cream Doonut ($4) when we wrote our Fluff Bakery review in early January 2022, but this seasonal special is no longer available. Nonetheless, you’ll find other mouthwatering flavours such as Earl Grey Milk Chocolate Donut ($4.50) and Strawberry Cheesecake Donut ($4.50). Act fast though, as the flavours switch up regularly!

Address: 795 North Bridge Road, Singapore 198763
Opening hours: Mon-Sat 11:30am to 7pm, Sun 11am to 5pm
Tel: 9144 7729

7. Harritt’s Donuts

So low-key is this doughnut store that you wouldn’t know that Harritt’s Donuts is famous in its native Japan and in Taiwan too. Abroad, their bakes are limited to just three per customer given how quickly they sell out, and in Singapore, bakes are pretty limited daily. Head down to the Havelock outlet for a cup of coffee and to try their selection of stuffed or ring doughnuts, in flavours such as Matcha, Pistachio, and Earl Grey. Expect fluffier, almost bun-like rounds that are generously filled. Prices range from $1.90 to $3.20.

Address: 2 Havelock Road, #01-08, Havelock II, Singapore 059763
Opening hours: Wed-Fri, Sun 11:30am to 6pm

Heartland Muslim-owned bakery Bakes By NY has been around since 2016, with addictive bombolone as a signature.

10. Sourbombe

Masterchef runner-up Genevieve Lee now fronts Sourbombe Bakery, where her own sourdough bombolini creations reign. This online-only bakery has one-of-a-kind fillings that play on hot food trends, including the Basque Burnt Cheesecake ($5.60) doughnut. These are also made-to-order and fried in coconut oil so they are less greasy too. Fastest fingers first when their pre-orders open, though, as they can sell out as quickly as in 10 minutes.

Check out our full review of Sourbombe Bakery.

11. The Fat Kid Bakery

Another home baker making sourdough bombolini is the aptly-named The Fat Kid Bakery. Their doughnuts are priced from $15.20 for a box of four, with more premium flavours requiring a top-up. Their Sea Salt Maple is a popular pick for good reason. It’s filled with a creamy cheesecake filling, and comes with fragrant notes of sweet maple syrup, offset by sea salt. Other must-tries include the Kaya with Whipped Butter, an ode to kaya toast, and Earl Grey Milk Tea.

Although the doughnuts are available for walk-in purchases, they tend to sell out rather quickly. Make sure you pre-order online to snag your favourite flavours!

12. Doughter Bakery

I used to only be able to find mochi doughnuts in Japan’s Mister Donut, but not anymore, because of Doughter Bakery. This all-mochi specialty home baker turns the QQ Japanese snack into an array of baked treats, from cookies to muffins to doughnuts. These chewy rings are sold in their bake boxes and monthly bake sales along with other Doughter Bakery items, in Chocolate Mocha, Sea Salt Chocolate and Chocolate Crispearls as their main offerings. Boxes are priced from $22, and you can often expect limited-edition flavours to pop up too.

13. Puffs And Peaks

Puffs and Peaks is a doughnut-centric home baker that got so popular, they have opened a physical store in Tampines Central CC, a 15-minute walk from Tampines MRT Station. They’re most known for their filled doughnuts, available in an array of fillings. Try the all-time favourite Lemon Curd ($3.80), or go for the Hazelnut Praline Chocolate ($4) for something more indulgent. Alternatively, get the Sour Cream & Chives ($3.80) if savoury flavours are your jam!

14. Delish Hotel Pillow Donuts

So soft and dense are these treats from Delish Hotel Pillow Donuts that they are very much like the goose down-packed cushions they’re named after. You get a mix of their Classic Sugar, Passionfruit Mango, Matcha, Strawberry Cream, and Chocolate Ganache doughnuts in every box. Prices start at $14 for eight pieces of classic, sugar-coated doughnuts. They also have a unique Durian Pengat ($29 for 10) flavour that one reviewer simply described as “OMG” and “overwhelming”, so take note, durian fans. 

Address: 60 Springside Walk, #01-10, Singapore 786020
Opening hours: Tue-Sat 10am to 1pm

Brawn & Brains recently opened a new outlet in Jalan Besar, with pastries and barista-brewed coffee for cafe-hoppers to indulge in. Try their BB Donuts ($4.20+) stuffed with locally inspired fillings such as Milo Custard and house-made Kaya. For something lighter and more refreshing, the Lemon Curd or Zesty Lime Curd option is worth considering.
