Don't be overwhelmed by the large selection of gorgeous intricate eclairs in this Parisian chic cafe. Start with their bestseller, Ispahan ($8.50), where a rose, raspberry and lychee cream combo sits in sweet choux pastry. Otherwise, the classic Dark Chocolate or Hazelnut ($8) are fine choices as well. For something rich and complex, try their Matcha ($8) éclair which boasts a slightly bitter aftertaste. Psst. With #BurppleBeyond, get four éclairs and two drinks for just $22!

Jot this quaint heartland cafe down for quick sugary pick-me-ups in the north. Come for their Passionfruit Meringue Tart ($4.80) that sees a buttery crust filled with smooth citrusy passionfruit cream and Italian meringue flowers. Also good is the more classic Lemon Meringue Tart ($4.50). For something sweet and refreshing, order their Fresh Fruit Tart ($4.60). These tarts are even better when paired with a piping hot cup of Gryphon English Breakfast Tea ($4) and a good read or a quiet conversation.

Find this pastry stand in the swanky lobby of Marina Bay Sands for lazy, luxurious afternoons. Choose from an array of 18 freshly baked sweet treats. Their Coconut Mousse with Mango and Passion Fruit ($10) sees sweet coconut mousse and a zesty mango and passionfruit core seated on a biscuit base. For something light and delicate, the Ghin Cheese Cake ($12) with a sugary coating and a buttery sable base will satisfy.

Drop by this pastry kiosk just a short walk from Bendemeer MRT for affordable fresh bakes. Their indulgent Mochi Croissants (from $3) are chewy and flaky on the outside and packed with creamy fillings. Try their Earl Grey ($5) loaded with sweet Earl Grey cream, otherwise, their Ferrero Rocher ($5) is a great chocolatey alternative. For something zesty, get the Lemon Curd ($5). Grab the Peanut Butter & Jam Croissant ($5) to go for the next great breakfast.

This minimalistic cafe is perfect for decadent teatime meet-ups. Get their Tarte Au Citron ($7.50) for a zesty lemon curd treat. Otherwise, the St. Honore ($8) is a winner with puff pastry, luscious vanilla cream, a burnt caramel glaze and a buttery sable base. P.s. their Tiramisu ($8.80) with a sinful rum and mascarpone mousse is also great.

Come by early if you wish to get a taste of the tempting goodies this bakery has to offer. Their delicious Plain Croissant ($4) ticks all the boxes — fluffy, buttery and crispy with incredible layers. Their Almond Croissant ($4) might just be the best around. Stuffed with not-too-sweet cream and flecked with from sliced almonds, it's not to be missed. Not to mention, it goes fabulously with hot black coffee ($4).

From the same pastry chef behind Flor Patisserie comes this humble Japanese-French pastry shop that sells elegant treats to-go in Tanjong Pagar Plaza. Be sure to try the Mille Feuille ($6.80) where layers of puff pastry, fresh cream and raspberry jam are topped with fresh strawberries. For a unique creation, the Luna Wrap ($6) sees lightly whipped flavoured cream (mango, chocolate or blueberry) cradled in a pancake.

Westies, gather your pals for a chill afternoon of tea and pastries at this dessert cafe near Chinese Gardens MRT. Start with Jiao ($8), a moist banana sponge cake with cinnamon and oat crumble. Dale ($8) is a matcha-lover's delight, with matcha sponge, matcha mouse, and passionfruit jam. Accompany your cakes with their Berries Merah tea ($4) or coffee (from $4) made from quality beans from Tiong Hoe Specialty Roasters.

Housed in Regent Hotel, swing by this luxe bakery after dinner for sweet Italian treats. Share their sweet and zesty Amalfi Lemon Tart ($9) and the light-as-air Strawberry Torta ($9.50) where fluffy vanilla sponge is coated in caramelised almonds. Another must-try is their soft and chewy Blueberry & Custard Bombolone (Italian donut) that oozes with every bite. Pro tip: After 8pm, selected pastries go at half price.

Follow your nose to the basement of Katong Shopping Centre where you will find this humble but wildly popular bakery. Come for their buttery Banana Pie ($2.50 per slice, $25 for a whole pie) that sees sweet banana mixed with fragrant coconut and roasted almond for crunch— good for housewarmings or pot-lucks! Don't forget to grab some Chocolate Rum Balls ($5 for 5 balls) to go (best eaten chilled!).

Open from 7am till 7pm, this neighbourhood bakery next to Empress Market is perfect for breakfast pitstops or teatime drop-ins. If you're lucky, snag their Insta-famous cruffins ($4.50 each) that sell out fast. Standouts include the PB&J and Lemon Curd. Otherwise, you'll be satisfied with any of their available pastries, including the delightfully flaky Kougin-aman ($4) that is coated in caramelised sugar for a perfect crunch.
