Tiong Bahru Bakery has done it again. The local pastry and bakery stalwart, famed for their French Croissants, has opened its fifth outlet – a safari-themed space nestled in the lush surrounds of Dempsey.

There may not be any wild animals here, unless you count the illustrations and cushion prints, but there are chickens and bunnies on site!

If you’re planning your next trip to an African Safari, you can finally do so at TBB Safari – a 46 seater cafe serving rainbow lattes and power breakfast jars.

No Wild Animals Here

Following a trip to Selinda Camp and Gomoti Plains Camp in Botswana, founder Cynthia Chua made use of the previously underutilised space in front of farm-to-table restaurant Open Farm Community. Where there once was an alfresco dining area now sits TBB Safari, with an all new, specially designed wooden gazebo and eco-friendly Airbitat coolers set at 25 degrees to regulate the temperature.

Being outdoors may sound cool in theory to some but not when you’re sweating in Singapore’s sweltering heat. Surrounded by Dempsey’s lush greenery, you can connect with nature in maximum comfort.

Inspired by her trip to Botsawana, she decked out the cafe with flat-woven kilim rugs, framed butterfly taxidermy and custom-made wooden tables. For a semi-alfresco space, the pseudo-campsite is nothing short of cosy. It’s the perfect glamping experience minus the mosquitoes and heat.

Exclusive to Tiong Bahru Bakery Safari are anti-inflammatory caffeine-free drinks. The Turmeric & Ginger Latte ($6.50) and Beetroot & Ginger Latte ($6.50) are smooth, warm options perfect for a rainy day. You can also switch out the milk for soy or almond nut milk at no extra charge.

TBB’s signature pastries and breads are also available at the new outlet, along with some Safari-exclusive items. Crafted for the health-conscious are their new power-breakfast jars packed with fruits and herbs plucked straight from the on-site garden. Think: pandan-infused pineapple on rolled oats in black sesame-infused milk ($8.80) and papaya infused with turmeric on a bed of tapioca pearls and coconut milk ($8.50).

A limited edition Wild Safari Cake ($9.20) – an elegant confection of banana mousse, banana passionfruit confit coated in chocolate, and coconut praline feuilletine will be available until Dec 14.

Dempsey is not the easiest place to get to but it’s definitely worth the trip. However we heard that queues stretched on for two hours at the branch’s opening on 16 Nov, so you might have to plan your trip here!
