A buttery and flaky croissant definitely hits the right note for the perfect breakfast. We’ve had our share of bad croissants, so here we have it — a summary of 5 bakeries with the best croissants in Singapore (so you won’t have to eat the bad ones).
Brotherbird Milk & Croissants
We’re quite sure the croissant fans have had your hands on at least one of these yummy croissants from Brotherbird. They’ve been gaining a lot of attention since their initial launches of mochi croissants and cruffins (a croissant and muffin hybrid) with unique and innovative flavours.
They’ve since came up with even more flavours. They include the hojicha creme, lemon meringue alongside classic crowd favourites like the original croissant and pain au chocolat. Getting a box of these deliciousness isn’t easy though, because the responses to their preorder boxes are so overwhelming, customers can wait up to a month just to get a box. So, it’s fastest fingers first! Follow their social media accounts for latest updates!
Tiong Bahru Bakery
They are known as the OG who’ve brought the croissant craze to Singapore a few years back with their huge, buttery, flaky-on-the-outside and ultra soft-on-the-inside croissants. If you haven’t tried theirs croissant, make sure you get the original one the first time round — it’s a croissant lovers’ dream.
However, our favourite item on the menu has to be hands down, the green tea almond croissant. The green tea almond frangipane filling, combined with their croissant recipe, is one of the most amazing pastries we’ve ever tasted. So make sure to order it, or takeaway a few back home for breakfast the next morning.
There are only two croissants on Merci Marcel’s menu, and they’re pretty darn good ones. A must-order is their fluffy and flaky croissant, served with homemade raspberry jam. Sounds like an innocent breakfast but if you’re not careful, you’ll be bound to devour more than one pastry in a single setting. We’re guilty as charged.
Remember to relax, breathe and take in their beautifully furnished cafe too. We are in love with the calm and gorgeous space that is sure to impress everyone who visit.
Ministry of Desserts
Ministry of Desserts is the brainchild Chef Francis Wong. He has several awards an achievements under his belt — including Pastry Art Champion 2014 and Team Champion in Culinary Olympics in 2016. Specialising in desserts and pastries, he has since came up with various unique creations under MOD by Wong Lee.
The latest gems are a series of croissants inspired by the local Singaporean taste. Expect flavours like Pandan Custard, Durian Cro-tart and Gula Melaka Kouign Amann.
This quaint little European inspired cafe is well hidden in a corner of Bukit Timah Road. They have an array of wholesome breakfast and brunch items, so this cafe is perfect for a hearty weekend brunch with your loved ones.
Get ready to take in the heavenly aroma of their freshly baked crispy-on-the-outside, soft-and-fluffy-on-the-inside croissants. If you’re craving for chocolates, get the Pain Au Chocolat — it’s also a kids’ favourite!
