As June rolls around, it brings plenty of good stuff: the national treasure that is the Great Singapore Sale, turbulent Gemini season and, best of all, LGBTQ Pride Month.
Pride Month celebrations are meant to commemorate the June 28 anniversary of the 1969 Stonewall Riots in New York City, which is considered a milestone event in the modern fight for LGBTQ rights.
The rainbow flag has long been used to represent the LGBTQ community worldwide, and while there may have been some escalator drama and cake-bashing on our shores in recent weeks, love is still love and these events won’t dull our colours.
We’ve sussed out the best cafes around the island where you can give your sweet tooth the rainbow treatment in honour of Pride Month.
1. Dean & Deluca
It’s not all food dye up in here—each layer of this rainbow cake comes packed with its own flavour.
Made with strawberry, orange, lemon, green apple, blueberry and grape fruit extract, this treat boasts both style and substance. It’ll make for a great ‘Gram post while also promising a myriad of fruity flavours for you to sink your teeth into.

2. The Coffee Daily
Tucked away at Brighton Crescent is The Coffee Daily, where the vibes are chill, the coffee is good and the rainbow cake is gorgeous.

4. I am…
This halal-certified café serves up some of the most iconic rainbow desserts in town.

You can also pair these with a warm cup of rainbow latte—latte art’s never been so technicolour.
