Souffle pancakes are the ultimate Instagrammable food
Our pancakes scene has come a long way, from the days when we would rise early to catch McDonald’s hotcakes. Though the good ol’ hotcakes are still satisfying at times, I’m more than glad for the many pancake joints that have opened in Singapore over the years. Whether it is for breakfast, tea, or post-diner dessert, these 10 jiggly, buttery souffle pancakes will satisfy.
1. Gram Cafe & Pancakes
Any foodie who has been to Japan would have been tempted to queue for the famous pancakes from Gram Cafe & Pancakes. Thankfully, the stack of jiggly, marshmallowy goodness has finally arrived to our shores at VivoCity. Available only at 11am, 3pm, and 6pm every day, with 30 servings each time, their signature Premium Pancakes ($17.90++) is a must-get and comes in a stack of three thick pancakes, with a dollop of whipped cream!

Opening hours: Daily 11am to 10pm, last order at 9pm
2. Sweet Rex
From their location to price and taste, everything about Sweet Rex would have you looking forward to your next visit. Occupying a stall at Mei Ling Food Centre, this hawker dessert stall is most famous for their fluffy Souffle Pancakes ($4 for two pieces) that come generously drizzled with either chocolate, caramel, or strawberry sauces. So many cafes tend to serve fancy desserts with rather exorbitant prices, so this is one of the rare places that dole out cheap treats that do not compromise on the taste.

3. Cafe De Nicole’s Flower
One of the most IG-worthy Souffle Pancakes ($19.90+) on the list is from Cafe De Nicole’s Flower. Opened in May 2019, the cafe is best known for their souffle pancakes which come decorated with brushes of chocolate sauce, pomegranate seeds, blueberries, strawberries, and a scatter of dried flowers. The dish also comes accompanied by a scoop of coconut ice-cream made with actual coconut juice and shreds of coconut meat. An additional bonus you can look forward to when visiting the cafe is “Lao Ban”, their adorable house cat that roams about freely!

Opening hours: Tue-Sun 8:30am to 8:30pm
4. Belle-ville Pancake Cafe
Another cafe that came all the way from Japan, Belle-ville Pancake Cafe is the place to hit up for jiggly pancakes when you are in Bugis. This little eatery only serves sweet pancakes and their signature dish is the Millefeuille Pancakes ($7.90++ for four, $11.90++ for eight pieces). Compared to fluffier ones found elsewhere, the pancakes at Belle-Ville are more buttery and eggy, with a runnier texture. Though a stack of eight pieces sounds and looks massive, you’d find it difficult to stop digging at it. We wiped the entire dish clean between two persons!
