If you have a craving for something sweet and want to treat the family, then check out Little Step’s list of the Top 10 Dessert Places in SG! From Over The Top (OTT) milkshakes, to jelly cakes and DIY pancakes, both kids and adults with a sweet tooth will love these spots!
If OTT milkshakes are your thing, then head to Black Tap at Marina Bay Sands. Known for serving up American diner food (eg burgers and fries), it is their decadent milkshakes that draw the crowds. The milkshakes are stacked high with layers of cream, cake, and candy. With lots of flavors to choose from (cotton candy, cake batter, loaded churro, and there’s even a vegan-friendly option), there is something to suit everyone! Beware these shakes aren’t cheap though and are a whole meal in themselves, so they are best shared!
The Dark Gallery is the first dark chocolate concept store in Singapore, serving up a range of (you guessed it) desserts made with dark chocolate! From delicious cakes to waffles, ice cream, and brownies this place is a chocoholics dream! The great thing about The Dark Gallery is that they offer home delivery, which means you can also enjoy their scrumptious treats in the comfort of your own home!
Ah Chew Desserts is the place to visit if you are after dessert, but something a little less on the sweet side. Serving fresh and tasty traditional Singaporean desserts, they have over 50 desserts to choose from! You can pick up both hot and cold desserts, eg. a range of Sago dishes (Mango/durian/watermelon), glutinous rice with ice-cream, and red bean paste to name a few. The Ah Chew Desserts outlets get pretty busy, but don’t worry the lines do move pretty quickly!
Ah Chew Desserts (Bugis), 1 Liang Seah Street, #01-10/11 Liang Seah Place, Singapore 189032, +65 6339 8198, www.ahchewdesserts.com

Who said dessert can only be enjoyed after dinner? If you are in the mood for something sweet throughout the day then head to Slappy Cakes for some delicious pancakes! The best thing about Slappy Cakes is the fun and interactive nature of the restaurant. It is DIY pancakes at its best. You get to choose your batter (think: chocolate, pandan, and peanut butter to name a few), and then pick your toppings either sweet or savory. They also deliver!
Creamery Boutique Ice Creams Singapore is the place to visit for deliciously creamy ice-cream (think peanut butter and jelly, cheesecake, and milo to name a few flavors). While the ice cream is delicious, the real hit with the kids will be the lava cookies, which are scrumptious baked cookies with a molten middle served with a scoop of ice cream on top. These guys also offer home delivery where they provide the cookie dough for you to BIY (Bake It Yourself), which adds an extra fun element for the kids.
If you are looking to escape the Singapore heat, then head to Dessert First and cool off with one of their mouthwatering shaved ice desserts. From fresh mango, to durian, strawberry, honeydew, and even chocolate, there is a great range of shaved and snow ice desserts. If you prefer your desserts a little warmer, they also have a range of waffles and hot fruit stews!
Little Damage hails from LA and sells tasty soft-serve ice creams. The kids will love not only the taste of the ice cream but the crazy colors (think bright blue and bright pink)! Little damage regularly changes the soft-serve flavors, but what they are famous for is their black waffle cone, which is naturally colored with charcoal. You can also choose from a variety of toppings to load on top from rainbow sprinkles, multi-colored cornflakes, chocolate balls, cookie crumble, coconut, or popcorn.
Little Damage, 2 Haji Lane, Singapore 189195, +65 6291 4041, www.littledamage.com
If you are looking for a unique and tasty cake then head to The Jelly Hearts. The Jelly Hearts are known for serving up jelly cheesecakes that are available in a range of flavors (think: blueberry, durian, strawberry, mango, lychee, and chocolate to name a few). As well as the wide range of flavors, you can pick from a wide range of designs (eg. square, round, heart, 3D) and also get your own personalized message or hand-drawn design on the cake, making these cakes perfect for special occasions!
If you are looking for a dessert place that resembles more of a fine dining experience, then head to 2am Dessert Bar. From the sleek interior to the almost too pretty to eat desserts, this is the perfect place to come for a date night. 2am Dessert Bar is sure to suit everyone’s tastes by serving up both sweet and savory dishes influenced by both the east (think: green tea, yuzu cheesecake, etc) and the west (think: pop tarts, cotton candy, etc). And the best thing is, all of their desserts have the option to be paired with drinks!
If you are looking for an indulgent afternoon snack, then head to Fluff Bakery where they serve up delicious cookies, tarts, slices, cakes, donuts, and their specialty - cupcakes! Fluff Bakery likes to regularly change things up by creating cupcakes with different flavor combinations like nutella red velvet or durian, making this a great place to find a unique treat!
