Lemon Meringue Croissant

$5.00 · 3 Reviews

Reopening after a month long hiatus is Brotherbird Coffeehouse! Known for their mochi donuts & amazing croissants, the coffeehouse is currently undergoing menu revamps & are only serving croissants & desserts!

One of the popular ones & also a personal favourite of mine are the Lemon Meringue Croissant & Brown Sugar Kouign Amann!

First, the Lemon Meringue Croissant is stuffed with lemon curd, giving you that zing with every bite! Topped with a meringue on the outside to cut through the tanginess while balancing out the lemon curd.

Secondly, the Brown Sugar Kouign Amann is another stunner! Most Kouign Amann's are generally dense & a tad too sweet, but Brotherbird's version was light, slightly sweet & extremely crunchy!


I would like to yell this out loud (but I shouldn’t right but I really wanna): Brotherbird’s finally open again! With a newly fitted industrial minimalist interior, their wide range of seasonal croissants, a new espresso blend, and a whole new cafe concept to come. Let’s not even get started on the upcoming savoury items yeah, the croissants and coffee themselves are worth a big hurrah. They were sold out by the time I got there, so I only got to try 2 creations. This Lemon Meringue one was gorgeous: fabulous lamination, crisp exterior and buttery fluffy insides, and a generous amount of super zingy lemon curd filling. Now when I say it’s super zingy, I really do mean that. The sourness hit me like a train and I have to admit reeling back a lil; but after the second bite I found myself rather welcoming that shockingly addictive citrusy tartness. It’s balanced off wonderfully well by the light sugar glaze on top of the croissant, and made me crave bite after bite. I loved it.


Originally Stateland Cafe, Brotherbird has moved a few doors down on Bali Lane. They now serve creative croissants and coffee in a minimalist space, and are expected to serve brunch on the second floor later in February. You won't go wrong with the Matcha Chocolat Roll ($4), Rocher Croissant ($5) or wonderfully tart Lemon Meringue Croissant ($5). Wash it all down with an Iced White ($5).
