Doughnut Shack is a small take-away shop nestled in the neighborhood of Whampoa selling classic donuts, cake donuts, and bombolinis. If you’re hankering for something that isn’t too sweet, the Pistachio Bombolini can go no wrong! Each bite is filled with a generous amount of luscious Pistachio cream and chewy dough.
Korio is born out of the owner’s love for the best donuts he’s had in Brooklyn, USA. Recreating that same experience here in Singapore, you’ll find the brioche donuts generously coated in a rich glaze. If you had to choose only one flavor, order the Caramelised Biscuits (SG$5) laced in cookie butter glaze interspersed with Lotus biscuits and topped with caramel rice pearls. A little bliss in every bite!

Puffs and Peaks first started as a home-based bakery that does online bake sales and has now expanded into a physical store in Tampines Central Community Complex. Run by a mother-daughter duo, the donuts are freshly made daily in small quantities and are sold out quickly. Have a go at their Taro Coconut (SG$3.80), an airy brioche donut overflowing with a light yet fragrant taro custard filling. To avoid disappointment, you may pre-order online.
‘Sourbome’ is a portmanteau of sourdough and Italian bomboloni, which Singapore’s Masterchef first season runner-up, Genevieve Lee, created by combining the two for her unique donuts. Dig into the Cinnabombe (SG$3.60), a classic flavor that is simply dusted with sugar and cinnamon powder. Check out the website for more exquisite flavors!
Mr. Holmes Bakehouse may have popularized the cruffin (a mashup of croissant and muffin), but their fluffy donuts warrant a boast too! There are four donut flavors on the menu, including the Plum Yuzu Jam (SG$6.50), which is only available on weekends. The citrusy notes from the Yuzu and tanginess from the plum will brighten your palate.
Bakes by NY is well-known for its Italian bomboloni with a local twist. Expect Singapore-inspired flavors such as Ovomaltine, Milo Dinosaur, and Biscoff stuffed donuts. Be sure to add Ondeh-Ondeh Stuffed Donut (SG$3) into your order, which is piped with fragrant pandan custard, drizzled with gula Melaka, and sprinkled with desiccated coconut.
City Donut strives to back good ol’ nostalgic donuts — along with its affordable price tag — with flavors such as the OG Donut that’s dusted in powdered sugar, and Coffee Donut covered with chocolate rice sprinkles. Similar to Bakes By NY, they too offer other local flavors on the menu that resonates well with their customers. The Orh-Nee Donut (SG$2.50) is unassumingly shaped like a regular ring donut, one bite and a good amount of paste piped into the dough coats the entire mouth with delectable yam fragrance.
Simple Cafe has come up with the Donut Bakebox (SG$18), featuring seasonal flavors with each new release. In line with the recent National Day Celebration, they’ve launched a donut box consisting of Kaya Butter, Curry Potato, Mango Passionfruit, and Vanilla. Do check out their website for the latest donut bakedbox.
Brotherbird’s signature Mochi Donut With Soft Serve makes a comeback with its reopening at Bali Lane earlier in 2021. However, fans of the mochi donut will have to wait till September 1, 2021, to enjoy the popular dessert again when the cafe opens for dining-in. For the uninitiated, the chewy mochi donut is made with glutinous rice flour and served warm with a tall, generous swirl of soft serve.
If you love Plain Vanilla’s cupcakes, do check out their custard-filled brioche donuts which are the cafe’s perennial favorite. There are two mainstay flavors, Dark Chocolate Hazelnut and Vanilla Bean Malt. The latter is filled with a delicate vanilla bean and malt custard, topped with a vanilla bean cookie for a welcoming crunchy texture, and dusted with malt icing sugar.
