Singapore dessert cafes are blessed with variety of flavours combination from the east meets west. Sunday brunch is a pretty common thing in Singapore, so finding a good dessert to accompany the meal is crucial. Here are some of my favourite places for dessert cafes islandwide.

Jones The Grocer

Cooking and baking honest food and brewing good coffee everyday. Shop artisan grocery, cheese, meat and gifts not in your local supermarket. I went here on a Sunday morning for their pancake. Love the texture and taste. The topping was blueberry, strawberries, fresh cream, and ground nut. It is an epitome of a weekend comfort food. For the holiday season, also expect for a special upcoming menu.

PS Cafe

The cafe is nestled among the lush greenery of Dempsey Hill Singapore. It is located at Harding Road, a little uphill road near Tanglin, Orchard. The cake below is one of their cake selections, but I tried it on the other day, so it is not in the video. It is the golden banana butterscotch cake and M's carrot cake, and I can tell you it is heavenly. Read more details about PS Cafe in this post.

Perfect for brunch or lunch, the place serves range of menu from savoury to dessert. Their ice cream waffle is such a legend. Had their blackforest waffle that consists of vanilla ice cream, chocolate and berry sauce. Such a heaven. Beware that the place closes at 6 and close order at 5 pm daily. It's definitely one of the best brunch places in Singapore you got to check out!

Brotherbird Coffee house

This time around, I revisited Haji Lane area (haven't been there for quite some time) and found a cafe called Brother Bird. The soft serve flavour is presented in rotational basis per week. During our visit, they have roasted barley flavoured soft serve with a balanced sweetness which I totally love! They updated the flavour monthly on their facebook page, make sure to check it out before coming down. We really like their mochi donut which has crispy outer but is soft and chewy on the inside. It is topped with some crispies/almond crunch as well.
