Reviews (4.6/5 on Google Reviews):

The shopkeeper was very friendly, treated us to brownies that were really rich and melts in the mouth. The donut dough is so good that you can even have it plain. The quality and amount of the filling was awesome. Vanilla seeds were seen in the vanilla cream. Sweetness of the donuts were just right. The only bummer would be the shop’s inaccessibility but you can choose to order and get them delivered too.” – Randy Chng

“Heard alot about this bakery, didn’t know they deliver island wide until last week. This Sourdough Bombos is so GÖöD!!! Super Fluffy and the sweetness is just right! Apple cinnamon and blueberry cheese is a must try! So good you can even eat it on its own. YŰM§!!!” – HãpPŸ

Reviews (4.6/5 on Google Reviews):

“Love the almond croissant and the espresso chocolate croissant. They are generous with the almonds and fillings. The upside down orange cake was alright for me. Prefer the lemon drizzle cake more. Come early to get your bakes. I reached at 1110am on a Friday and it had a queue formed already.” – Siqiang Yang

“I have become a fan of their daily freshly baked pastries and breads. Our personal favourites are the Cinnamon brioche roll, sourdough baguette, lemon drizzle, almond croissants and cakes and tart. Come early as the daily popular items get sold out fast. Look out for their monthly weekday and weekend sandwiches which are definitely worth a try.” – Simple Foodie

Giving it five stars for the bakes. Been here numerous times and possibly tried almost all the bakes and love them. Love the croissants the best and hubby the croissant critique agrees it’s probably the best in SG. In the morning the bakes (butter) smell so good and the pastries so crispy. The donut so fluffy and warm. Must go again.” – Nicole Yeong
