Foodies with a sweet tooth are spoilt for choice these days. As cafe-hopping plans are allowed to resume, there have been new dessert cafes popping up one after another.


There's the new Gram cafe at Punggol with new soufflé pancake flavours & savoury meals, and the pink dessert cafe Sweetish at Parklane mall. And on top of these two, there are eight more new dessert cafes in Singapore, each with artisanal and gorgeous treats you can enjoy in stylish interiors.

Keep reading to check them out!

#1 Cafe Kuriko

Cafe Kuriko is a new dessert cafe in Funan mall that specialises in mont blanc, a chestnut-centred confectionary beloved in Japan.

There are two flavours of mont blanc ($13.90) that are freshly piped to order, Waguri, a Japanese variety of chestnut, and Purple Sweet Potato. You can choose either chestnut or cheese as your mont blanc base.

The purée on top had a light, creamy consistency with rich and decadent chestnut flavour. Paired with the alcohol-infused chestnut cake and cream base and chestnut bits, this mont blanc never gets boring.

The cafe also serves mont blanc in the form of a parfait. The Purple Sweet Potato Parfait ($13.90) has vanilla ice cream, rice crisps and jelly under the mont blanc puree, topped with chestnut bits, dango, cake and chocolate.

The purple sweet potato had a deep flavour and creamy richness without being too sweet - perfect for local taste buds. It's complemented by various toppings that added many contrasting textures from crunchiness to chewiness.

Besides mont blanc, Cafe Kuriko also serves tarts and cakes. Some worth trying are the refreshing Mixed Fruit Tart ($9.35/slice) with tangy fruit slices weaved between delicate cream, and Mont Blanc Zuccotto ($10.90), a mont blanc and tart fusion.

Out of the eight Cha-Nabes, we went for the Aburi Chicken Truffle Soya Milk Set ($18.90, or $15.90 for a la carte) which comes with with potato salad, pickles and a drink.

Everything about this cha-nabe hit the right spot, from the tender chicken with a charred flavour and mushrooms to the springy udon noodles and comforting broth with a pronounced truffle aroma. Those with lactose intolerance can also consider this meal option when the mood for a milky, rich broth arises.

Although the set came with drinks, we also tried the Mont Blanc Latte ($8.90), a surprisingly perfect mix of chestnut mont blanc puree and creamy coffee, and Matcha Latte ($7.90), a rich and smooth drink that matcha connoisseurs would approve of.

The interior has a minimalist, unpretentious vibe while still being a cosy spot for a meal or dessert.

Formerly an online, home-based patisserie named Reverie Patisserie, it has since evolved into LA VIE, a cafe with a minimalist aesthetic.

But the real highlight of this cafe is their pretty, delicate desserts that are curiously given people names. Alfie ($10) is a fallen ice cream cone dessert made of Valrhona Jivara mousse, banana slices, salted caramel, milk chocolate ganache and  dark chocolate cake.

The patisserie's name, Nuage, meaning "cloud" in French, reflects its free-spirited nature. Like how clouds are constantly changing but are beautiful in every form, Nuage's desserts are whimsical, unexpected and always aesthetically pleasing.

Starting from their most stunning creation, Exotic Coco ($9.80) is a daisy-shaped delight made of coconut whipped ganache and banana compote on top of a crunchy coconut sablé base.

Something to befuddle your senses is the Strawberry Popcorn ($9.80), a realistic-looking dessert that's completely edible, down to the "paper" carton. This creative popcorn-shaped cake has a variety of textures with a fluffy vanilla sponge, smooth strawberry cream & compote, and crunchy crumble base and chocolate-coated popcorn.

For more traditional flavours, try the Pistachio Strawberry Tart ($9.20). It has melt-in-your-mouth pistachio almond cream and pistachio whipped ganache coupled with strawberry confit for a tangy punch, all perfectly arranged on a crunchy sablé base.

Novelty items aside, Nuage also has classic French pastries like Croissants ($4) and Pain Au Chocolat ($4.50) made of AOP French butter. This type of butter is often regarded as the ingredient for making perfect croissants that have flaky, crisp layers of delicate dough and a rich taste with subtle hazelnut highlights.
