L’eclair is Singapore’s first eclair specialty store, and they have some of the prettiest and yummiest eclairs you can lay your eyes on. Stepping away from the traditional chocolate glazed puffs with plain cream, they have a myriad of flavours from isapahan and hazelnut to other seasonal flavours. They’re so immaculately decorated that you would think they are eclairs from Paris. They also make a great gift!

Nestled in the posh neighbourhood of Holland Village, Sunday Folks has built the reputation of being one of the hottest hangouts for young people over the years.

Hatter Street serves up some of the most interesting desserts in Singapore at a relatively affordable price. Of course, there is the standard ice cream waffle, but there is an array of cakes that are as mad as the cafe’s namesake. Inspired by the Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland, the cafe comes up with all sorts of cakes like the Rabbit Hole, which is a sinful chocolate concoction of devil’s food cake, milk chocolate mousse and dark chocolate fudge. One of its most interesting desserts is the Smoked Sawdust Pudding inspired by the incense burning at temples in Macau. The biscuit crumbles on top of a custardy pudding layer have an intense smoky flavour that’s simply exquisite!

Address: 212 Hougang Street 21, #01-333, Singapore 530212

Opening Hours: Open daily 1pm – 10.30pm

5. L.E. Cafe Confectionery and Pastry

Sure, we may love our egg tarts, but have you heard of soya bean tarts? That’s right, the beloved tau huay gets its own spin that’s much more refreshing than the traditional egg tart. L.E. Cafe may be quite different from the other dessert cafes on this list, but no doubt it is one of the best dessert spots in Singapore just for their Soya Bean Tart. They also sell moon pies, which are like mooncakes but with the paste encased in a pie-layer similar to pineapple tarts. For good spins on traditional desserts, come to L.E. Cafe!

On the topic of tarts and pies, Windowsill Pies is definitely one of the best dessert spots for pie. Boasting the humble cherry pie to exotic flavours like Pumpkin Bourbon, it has become one of the top go-to spots for people to hang out at and satisfy their sweet tooth.

Morello Cherry is one of their best-sellers lovingly made with hand-cooked sticky cherry jam with juicy sour cherries in a buttery sugar cookie lattice crust. Yum!
