A very short blog post revealing my go-to places for good desserts (plus these are all stunning cafes worthy of your instagram feed) that you won’t regret going.
ONE. Paddy Hills – for the BEST Pancake in Singapore
I don’t know if I would regret publicizing this place because this is my ULTRA FAVORITE café. Everything I tried (mains, desserts and even drinks) at Paddy Hills are all SO GOOD and photogenic-looking so far. The Berry Ricotta pancake is crispy on the outside and buttery soft in the inside; it melts in your mouth and has a generous serving of berries! Freshly made upon ordering, there are only limited pieces per day. Curious Palette has a similar version but Paddy Hill’s version wins hand down. To date, I think this is really my NUMBER ONE favourite dessert in Singapore (not joking).

TWO. The Plain Jane & Rich & Good Cake Shop – for Swiss Roll
Located within Serangoon heartlands lie a small cosy café which specializes in a handful of different flavours of Swiss Rolls (Earl Grey, Matcha, Strawberry Yogurt, Thai Milk Tea, etc). And on an usual basis, you will get to meet Jane, the lady boss, whom is a passionate entrepreneur who shares about her bakes with a lot of enthusiasm. On my second visit, she nicely offered 2 new flavours for our table to try (all thanks to K whom is a regular at The Plain Jane!). All the flavours were good, but I only have eyes on the original flavour of their Swiss Roll. Each swiss roll is pillow soft and the inner filling is smooth and creamy (not jiat-lat at all)! A pity that The Plain Jane doesn’t have Durian flavoured Swiss Roll; so if you are a fan of Durian (like me!), you can also try Rich & Good Cake Shop for your durian fix.
Visit The Plain Jane at Block 211 Serangoon Ave 4 #01-10 Singapore 550211 and Rich & Good Cake Shop at 24 Kandahar Street Singapore 198887.
THREE. Sinpopo Brand
Many cafes dot along Joo Chiat Road, as I was there walking towards Awfully Chocolate wanting to get my favourite HEI ice cream, my friends and I stumbled upon Sinpopo Brand Café and was drawn in. There were many seats available on a weekend night, and we decided to give it a try. We ordered the Frisee Salad with Crispy Muah Chee, Orange Kaya Pisang Crème Brulee (too sweet to my liking L), Pandan Tart, Katong Jelly drink and Sng Muay Pop. Everything we tried was ordinary but the PANDAN TART was da bomb! (Not sure if my review is bias because I love everything pandan flavoured) The pandan tart has a light pandan frangrant and it has a velvety smooth and soft texture which balances out nicely with the tart pastry.
Slightly over-priced, but I am planning a second trip to try their Pandan soufflé and Durian Pengat which were both sold out that night. If any of you have tried, please write me your reviews too heh.
Visit them at 458 Joo Chiat Road Singapore 427671
