The Little Bakery in Farrer Park
We wouldn’t blame you if you walked past The Little Bakery without even realizing it. This cozy French cafe is hidden inside My selectiona newly opened furniture store along Marne Road—a short four-minute walk from Farrer Park Tube Station.
This is the very first physical store of the local furniture brand. Here you can browse ornaments and artwork, quirky trinkets and more for your home, while you wait for your baked goods to be served.
On the side of La Petite Boulangerie, you will find Wonderful ($9), pronounced as “mair-vè-y-eu”. This traditional French and Belgian dessert features a sweet, melt-in-your-mouth meringue layered with fluffy fragrant cream. The cafe is the first in Singapore to permanently offer this unique pastry in a wide range of flavors, both classic and locally inspired.
A pillar here is the Valrhona chocolate, a crowd favorite with meringue, luscious chocolate whipped cream and Valrhona chocolate shavings. Other popular choices are Hazelnut Pralinetopped with caramelized walnuts, and the Tiramisua bittersweet flavor perfect for those who love coffee.
There is also tropical passion fruit, if you prefer something lighter with tangy notes. This fruity dessert is accompanied by a passion fruit cream coated with coconut crumble and slivers of passion fruit.
Each Wonderful is $9, but you can also get them in mini size at $18.80 for a box of fourWhere $24.80 for a box of six.
Those who love buttery pastries will be delighted with the range of freshly baked croissants and snail-shaped danishes here. Get the Pandan Kaya Coconut Snail ($5.50)embellished with fragrant swirls of homemade kaya.
The Coconut Gula Melaka Snail ($5.50)a sticky, buttery dough with a caramelized sweetness, is another nod to Singaporean flavors.
According to owner Alexandre Kebabtchieff, the café will soon launch a new range of savory pastries. Stay tuned for their latest updates by following My Pick on IG.
Note that seating is limited – there were only two dining tables while we were there – so takeout could be better.
