These 10 Bakeries In S'pore Serve The Best Bread - And They All Deserve A Toast

Bread is incredibly versatile yet somehow underrated. There’s even a word created solely to describe someone who supports the family (with bread probably). BREADWINNER.

As someone who ranks bread as the top carb of choice, I have pretty strong feelings for bread.

Here’s a list of my favourite bakeries. Because bread is life.

1. Konditori

Konditori is an artisan European bakery and the sister outlet of fika swedish cafe and bistro. Opened in 2016, their pastries and bread are all freshly made from scratch daily.

They have everything from tarts and cakes to traditional Swedish pastries and of course, bread. If you’re a sucker for a good brioche or croissant, then you should try the ones here.

Oh, they have this divine Cranberry Cream Cheese Bagel that you NEED to try as well.

2. The Bakery By Woodlands Sourdough

To name themselves after a specific type of bread, The Bakery By Woodlands Sourdough serves up some amazing sourdough toast.

This Muslim-owned bakery has a selection of both savoury and sweet sourdough toasts.

Go for their Nut Butter With Honey And Sea Salt Toast ($3.50). A thick slice of sourdough toast is slathered with almond butter, generously drizzled with honey and finished with a sprinkling of sea salt.

If you’re looking for something more savoury, their Egg Salad with Dukkah and Pickled Onions ($5) is a great option.

The thick sourdough toast is topped with a heap of egg salad and garnished with pickled onions.

I mean, just look at it.

The Bakery By Woodlands Sourdough also has bagels and pizzas on their menu if you’re looking for something more substantial.

If you’re planning to visit, go early because their bread sells fast.

3. Asanoya Boulangerie

Asanoya Boulangerie is a Japanese bakery specialising in gourmet bread and pastries. They combine Japanese flavours with traditional European pastries.

Their flagship item is the Fruit Rye made with orange peel, rum raisin, walnuts and almonds. Apparently it’s so popular in Karuizawa that it gets sold out the moment it is displayed on the shelves.

A popular item in Singapore is the Croissant Block that comes in various flavours. Like this Creme Brûlée Croissant Block, filled with fresh cream and topped with a caramelised sugar crust.

4. Baker & Cook

Baker & Cook is Singapore’s only true artisan bakery and food store chain by Global Baker Dean Brettschneider.

You have to try their Bombolini Donuts aka Custard Donuts. You can choose from either the Jam Bombolini or the Vanilla Custard Bombolini.

The donut is filled with custard (or jam) and dusted with sugar, yet somehow isn’t too sweet.

If you love your donuts as much I do, then this is it.

5. Carpenter & Cook

Carpenter & Cook is an artisan bakery cafe and vintage home store. While they technically don’t serve bread, they do have amazing pastries.

Go for their Passionfruit Meringue Tart ($6.80). This beautiful dainty tart is almost too pretty to eat.

The passionfruit’s zest cuts through the sweetness of the tart and meringue so it’s not jelak.

This is strictly not for sharing because you’ll want to savour every bite. EVERY. BITE.

Carpenter & Cook
Address: 19 Lorong Kilat, #01-06, Singapore 598120

6. Thai Baang

Thai Baàng is here and they are reinventing the bread game.

Located at Kitchener Complex, this bakery may be small, but the bread they churn out isn’t.

7. Tiong Bahru Bakery

If you have not tried anything from Tiong Bahru Bakery, have you truly been living?

While the cafe serves up a large variety of bread and pastries, baked fresh daily, their bestseller is the Kouign Amann.

The name ‘Kouign Amann‘ is derived from the Breton words for cake (kouign) and butter (amann). This pastry is rich yet not saccharine.

I usually buy in bulk because why not? (Actually it’s because there’s no Tiong Bahru Bakery near my place)

But my point is that the Kouign Amann here is AMAZING. Don’t say ‘never intro’.

8. Keong Saik Bakery

Keong Saik Bakery is riding the ‘Dirty Bun’ wave pretty hard.

Their recent ‘Dirty Bun’ creations include the Matcha Dirty Bread ($4.50) and the Chocolate Dirty Bread ($4).

If you’re done with the ‘Dirty Bun’ trend like I am, go for the Keong Saik Bakery signature, the Sor Hei ($3.80).

It’s a black and white danish pastry filled with chocolate chips between the layers. Reminds me of the seaweed chicken I used to buy in the school canteen.

Best to come early for the Sor Hei because it gets sold out very quickly.

Keong Saik Bakery
Address: 41 Keong Saik Road, Singapore 089146
Opening Hours: Daily: 8am – 8pm

9. Swee Heng 1989 Bakery

Swee Heng 1989 Bakery is one of my favourites. I’ve had their bread for dinner on countless occasions because why not?

They use fresh ingredients and they have unique flavours for their bread. My favourite is the Mrs. Red Bean which is a red bean bun with cream cheese and a polo bun crust.

The Rocky Chocolate is also really good.

Image Credit: Swee Heng 1989

Chocolate bread peppered with walnuts and raisins. It’s very chocolatey and rich. Drink lots of water after because while the bread is really good, it does leave your throat a little dry.

10. Tai Cheong Bakery

Tai Cheong Bakery is well known for their HK Egg Tarts. There’s even a Pandan variation.

While their HK Egg Tarts hog the spotlight, another must-try is the HK Polo Bun.

If you’re a fan of HK cuisine and their pastries, Tai Cheong Bakery is the place to be.
