All the way from China, Sugar Toast comes to our shores with their first outlet at Wisma Atria. Proudly showcasing artisanal handmade bread in Singapore, Sugar Toast is offering fourteen varieties of toast and one glorious Cheese Crown.
Sugar Toast is all about unique flavours and Instaworthy whimsical designs. The brand specialises in artisanal breads that are made with only quality ingredients, natural colouring, and without preservatives. The dough is made with high-protein flour specially imported from Japan, a secret ratio of milk to water mix, then enhanced with condensed milk for an unmistakable fragrance, before being individually flavoured. They are painstakingly handmade in a process that takes up to four hours, and characterised by distinctive swirls that are a result of careful braiding of dough, making the breads instantly recognisable.
It’s love at first bite with their Rainbow Cranberry Toast. Also on the menu are Purple Sweet Potato Toast, White Chocolate Matcha Toast, Dragon Fruit Walnut Toast, Salted Cheese Toast and lots more.

Shio (Japanese for 'salt') Patisserie offers tarts that are baked and assembled in-house just two hours before collection for optimal freshness and quality.
For now, you've got 2 choices - shop the Assorted Box of 4 tarts or the large Sea Salt Dark Chocolate Tart. The assorted box consists of Earl Grey Pecan Tart, Cheese Brûlée Tart, Lime Basil Tart, and Mont Blanc Tart. With such a diverse flavour profile all in one box, there's something for everyone! Our personal favourite is the zingy Lime Basil Tart topped with a smooth layer of white chocolate cream for the ultimate indulgence, countering the sour kick from the lime. Also popular is the rich and creamy Cheese Brûlée Tart. The caramelised sugar glaze marries the citrus lemon sponge filled with cream cheese and mascarpone, making it oh so addictive. A perfect balance between sweet and savoury – it’s like there’s a party in your mouth!
The highly raved Sea Salt Dark Chocolate Tart is a divine harmony of the most premium French chocolate and the finest sea salt. The chocolate ganache boasts a rich, velvety texture that is accompanied by just the right amount of bitterness. A slight sprinkle of Maldon salt delivers not only a satisfying crunch, but enhances the tart with a crisp, savoury finish. This tart is seemingly modest but it is indulgent.
Weekly pre-orders with limited slots open at 12pm every Tuesday at https://shiopatisserie.com/. Assorted boxes are sold at S$36 per box (consisting of four 8 cm tarts per box) and large tarts (16 cm) are sold at S$38 per piece.

This San Francisco-founded bakery that rose to social media fame through a widespread love for their cruffins (croissant muffins), has come to Singapore! Open right in the heart of town, pastry lovers can expect to get “Baked in Singapore” (check out the Instaworthy glowing neon sign at the entrance) with a promise of buttery heaven through signature cruffins, croissants, brioche donuts, and other sweet and savoury bakes.
When baked, the cruffin is a puffed up standing pastry marked with striking layers that are flaky on the outside while remaining gloriously moist on the inside. With a quarterly rotating menu, you will be spoilt for choice at the glass display counter with an opening assortment of indulgent, cream-piped cruffins on display – from Peanut Butter Milkshake that tastes just as decadent as it sounds, to a lady-finger crowned Tiramisu Cream for the coffee and sweet addicts. Offering a fruitier contrast is duo of Lemon Meringue Pie croissant that comes piped with lemon curd and a topping of torched meringue.

The Gentleman, a seductive whiskey-soaked chocolate sponge cake with cashew nut brittle, chocolate mousse and a rich coat of dark chocolate and whiskey ganache, steals the spotlight for us.

enjoue is an artisan bakery in Singapore offering freshly baked bread and pastries with islandwide delivery.
Looking for the perfect sourdough to make avo and toast or eggs benedict at home? The bread at enjoue bakery are made without the use of yeast but instead a sourdough starter.
