TOP Cake Cafes in Singapore – cake shops and places for dessert

Flor Patisserie

Cakes are a type of food that occupies a special place in our hearts (and our stomachs). On special occasions such as weddings and birthdays, we celebrate with a cake. Even on normal days we search for the list of top cake cafes in Singapore. We escape to these pleasant places to escape from the humdrum of daily life.  Sometimes a slice of cake costs more than our lunch at the food court. But a beautiful cake in a peaceful setting never fails to brighten our spirits. Even better when it tastes as good as it looks.

The Refinery Singapore is a casual dining restaurant serving Japanese dishes, a mixology bar as well as a designer workspace.
