It all started with a seed and then that was nurtured by their firmly-held belief in celebrating neighbourhoods, that blossomed into a space bourne out of love called Tiong Bahru Bakery on 43 Jalan Merah Saga in Chip Bee Gardens, surrounding the artsy bohemian enclave, Holland Village. After six years in the planning of this long-awaited fourth bakery (really, since the inception of this Singapore-French concept), finally the Home of the Handmade Croissant can embrace the unique culture of the locale and the creative melting pot of individuals that make up this quaint and tight-knitted community.
Sticking closely to homegrown Tiong Bahru Bakery's DNA, they bring fresh breads, viennoiserie and pastries to the people everyday. Expect the full menu of well-loved and familiar all-French butter and flour only treats such as their signature butter croissants which are baked fresh every two hours priced at $3.20 each and the grand list of iced and hot beverage from 8am – 8pm daily at the neighbourhood's doorstep.
Debuted in May 2012 on Eng Hoon Street in charming Tiong Bahru, offering the neighbourhood a range of French pastries and artisanal breads made with the best French flour and butter. As one of the very first French bakeries in Singapore, Tiong Bahru Bakery revolutionised the way locals enjoy breads with topnotch bakes and sparked the French bakery trends. Their croissants have been voted by many as the best in Singapore and the Kouign Amanns are much raved about. All best enjoyed with an aromatic cuppa from the specialty coffee bar by Common Man Coffee Roasters.

Bakery, cafe and bar all-in-one, serving freshly baked bread, rustic favourites and tapas from around the world, house blend coffees, salads and smoothies by day, turning into a bar and ‘Gin & Fizz club’ every evening.
On the 4th Aug 2011, the people behind Bakery & Bar baked their first batches of muffins on the ground floor of a little yellow shophouse at 112 Telok Ayer Street, that they aptly named the Muffinry. After 6 years in business and with a loyal clientele enjoying their baked treats but requesting a bit more, they decided to expand they offerings...
... and so at the end of 2017 they re-branded as Bakery & Bar.
Today, in addition to their extensive range of sweet treats – muffins, tarts, cakes, scones, homemade granola and cookies, they offer savoury breakfast, lunch and dinner items – pies, quiches, salads, sandwiches, cold cuts and delicious desserts.

And don’t be fooled by the narrow ground floor that’s typical to Telok Ayer Street’s shophouses... they have 50 more seats upstairs! Their second and mezzanine floors offer a welcome hideaway amidst the bustle of the CBD. This space – which regularly hosts corporate events and private parties – is cheerful and filled with natural light by day, transforming to a more mellow, chilled vibe as the sun sets – the perfect spot to unwind and swap stories of the day before heading home.

Old Seng Choong pays homage to chef Tay's father and the confectionery that sparked his culinary ambitions. The brand focuses on traditional festive treats to accompany every momentous occasion and celebration in life.
Aside from rolling out promotional items for calendar events such as Mooncake Festival and Chinese New Year, Old Seng Choong will also launch old school bakes with a more nostalgic slant.

PAUL, a family bakery and patisserie founded in 1889 in France, offers a selection of country-style and fancy bread, viennoiserie (croissants, etc.) pastries, cakes and desserts, snacks and sandwiches. From April 2017, you can also indulge in their creations at the Departure/Transit Lounge of Changi Airport Terminal 1.
PAUL is a ''Maison de Qualité'' whose values have been perpetuated since 1889. It is also, and most importantly, a family concern: five generations dedicated to the taste of good bread since they opened the first bakery.
Respectful of small-scale bakery tradition using natual leaven, Eric Kayser, working with his bakers, has developed his creations over the years. Technical innovations, new recipes, innovative store designs, and constant search for the best quality ingredients. He also shares the values that are dear to him: a love for work well done and team spirit.
All breads, pastries and brioches at Maison Kayser are produced each day in the baking rooms of each of the bakeries using the Fermento Levain. After this exclusive leavening, the bread undergoes slow kneading and long fermentation, before being shaped by hand, placed on a linen cloth and baked on-site in an open hearth oven. In addition to these fine creations, grocery products, sandwiches, salads and quiches are also available.
In 1964, Eric Kayser was born into a family of professional bakers – his great-grandfather, grandfather, and father were all traditional French bakers. Naturally, he quickly realized his calling for baking and at a young age of 18, became a companion of the prestigious Tour de France of baking for five years. Then, he bacame a bakery trainer for the Institut National de la Boulangeri Patisserie (INBP) for nearly ten years.
In 1994, Eric Kayser and Patrick Castagna, an audit consultancy and training body for bakers and pastry chefs, invtented the Fermento Levain – a machine which maintains natural liquid leaven at an ideal temperature. As a living element, this yeast is taken care of everyday with the baker feeding it by adding water and flour to balance the fermentation.
The folks from Lab SG have a new dessert and bakery project a few doors from their mainstay at Jalan Pisang, Sinseh: The Grocery.
Occupying a small shophouse half the size of their restaurant, the intimate space is minimalist yet cozy with whitewashed concrete walls, wooden shelf displays of trinkets like retro cookie jars and cooking memorabilia, and a corner dedicated to fancy cutlery and artisan baking goods for sale. But don't expect to get too cushy because apart from a table and a few chairs outside, there aren't any dine-in options.
Apart from the usual croissants and baguettes and focaccia, the in-house bakery here does hearty bagel sandwiches with fillings like salmon and dill, turkey bacon and egg, grilled cheese and grilled vegetable. Desserts include death-by-carbs option bagel ice cream sandwich with homemade vanilla ice cream and fruit, nut and chocolate chips. Just like their predecessors at Lab SG, they're pretty big on dessert drinks like the earl grey float that sees a dollop of their home made early grey ice cream on a root beer or Coke, virgin lychee mojitos and caramel apple fizz.

The Singapore branch of famous American-Eclectic New York City bakery and restaurant with Southwestern accents has recently opened.
Clinton Street Baking Company, Singapore is comfortable and cosmopolitan. In the morning, it smells like blueberry muffins and fresh ground coffee. Throughout the day, there is the scent of buttermilk fried chicken and vanilla waffles, pancakes and maple butter. All day and night, it sounds like Latin-southern-blue note jazz with a New York vibe that you can feel the second you walk in.
When they began, Neil and Dede were a small wholesale baking company with a storefront and a few loyal neighborhood customers who lingered over coffee and muffins and tapped out on their laptop keys (before smartphones were born).
These days, most folks know Neil’s pancakes are voted best in the city, but it’s his savory roots that ground the menu and make them proud. People call it “comfort food,” but what they are dishing out is American Classics made with the highest quality ingredients, locally sourced -- whenever possible -- with lots of love (and butter).
In Good Comany Café will introduce Plain Vanilla’s first extended menu beyond their famous cupcakes and small bakes. This includes breakfast foods such as homemade granola, fruit and yoghurt bowls with walnut crumble and agave nectar; speciality grilled sandwiches such as Prosciutto & Truffle on Ciabatta and Watercress Egg Aioli on homemade Brioche. Almost everything on the menu is made in small batches and made from scratch – from the artisanal breads to the aioli, tapenade, jam and chutney, to the cakes and pastries; it is Plain Vanilla’s philosophy to present heartfelt comfort food made in the philosophy of home-cooking. They focus on refining classic, familiar flavours, eschewing artificial ingredients and preservatives, relying instead on the natural flavours of the best and freshest ingredients.
The 800 sq. ft. café sits 20 people comfortably around communal tables designed by Nathan Yong - of FOLKS FURNITURE and co-founder of GRAFUNKT – in collaboration with the IGC design team. Envisioned as a little botanical oasis nestled in the heart of the store, the café is capped by lush ferns and greenery from local florist Triceratops.
At a glance, the synergy between In Good Company and its collaborators – Plain Vanilla Bakery, illustrator and artist Kuanth, Hoiming, Magpie, Math Paper Press, Nathan Yong, and Triceratops – seems as much about sharing a like-minded philosophy as the coming together of a creative clan. The idea of collaboration and creative community-building is important for In Good Company; it is a company philosophy that is embodied in its very name.
