5 French Bakeries to try in Singapore

The French often say that the best bakery is the one closest to you. Well, we are lucky that in Singapore, 14,000 km away from France, that there are more than a few, but which ones have made our list? Did you know that to be called a boulangerie, a French bakery must bake bread on the premises? Whether it is a croissant or a pain au chocolat (or chocolatine depending on your worldviews) or a baguette traditionnelle, we have put together 5 French bakeries that you should try – So Chic-verified.

Artisan Boulangerie Co.

For who? Artisan Boulangerie Co., or ABC Bakery, is the contemporary neighbourhood café with artisanal bakes and great coffee. Perfect for a post-jog morning or chilled afternoon of catch-up and chit-chat with a friend.

Our favourite bake? With flour imported directly from a traditional flour mill outside of Paris, you can’t go wrong with a croissant, but if you are adventurous, get the croissant aux amandes, a delicious fluffy delight.

Tiong Bahru Bakery

For who? The bakery that started as a local neighbourhood joint in said neighbourhood has its proven-and-tested French roots in its craft. You might have heard about its partnership with Tiffany & Co., where it had visitors recreate their own iconic Audrey Hepburn moment in the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

Our favourite bake? The pain au chocolat (or chocolatine) is flaky on the outside, peel the layers one by one, dunk it in your coffee, savour it until you arrive at the gooey goodness of chocolate on the inside.

La Petite Boutique & Le Petit Depot

For who? For those who don’t want to leave the house, there is always online e-commerce options such as LePetitDepot and La Petite Boutique. Miam!

Our favourite bake? A great selection of bread and pastries, and you can get some cheese and wine while you are at it!
