Follow the crumbs and they will lead you to the best cookie spots in Singapore.
Did someone say cookies? As much as we love our burnt cheesecakes, macarons, scones, donuts and cupcakes, we will always have space in our hearts for this classic baked treat. From chewy and soft to chunky and crunchy, these are our go-to spots when we’re craving cookies in Singapore.
Best cookies in Singapore
Bundt by The Backyard Bakers
Combining the fudginess of brownies and the chewiness of cookies in a mixing bowl, the folks here present you with their famous “brookies”. While the store doesn’t have a fixed menu, these crumbling beauts come in popular flavours like Nutella, peanut butter, Ovaltine and dark chocolate. The creativity doesn’t stop there. Keep space for “bruffins” – you guessed it, they’re a hybrid between muffins and brownies. It’s also worth mentioning that the baked goods sell out pretty quick so slide in your order via the social media pages.

Creamery Boutique Ice Creams
Contrasting flavours have always been popular – hello salted caramel and sea salt chocolate cookies. But who would have thought the mix of hot and cold desserts would blow our minds? Yes, to see what’s all the fuss about, head over to Creamery for its warm lava cookies topped with a scoop of ice cream. Expect the usual cookie flavours like red velvet, chocolate and matcha. But from time to time, you can look forward to seasonal flavours like ondeh ondeh and salted egg yolk lava cookie. Feel free to mix and match your flavours to create the ultimate dessert.

The Cookie Museum
For a fine dessert, a museum is definitely in order and the “exhibits” here are all edible! Jokes aside, this store has been offering gourmet cookies in Singapore for more than a decade. Popular choices include lychee rose, madeleine rose and Earl Grey lavender. For a hint of savoury, there’s the chilli crab cookie!

When this cookie brand made its debut on our shores, there was much fanfare – and for good reason. These cookies are large, soft-baked and replete with chunky bits of Belgian chocolate – just the way we like it. Our choice picks have to be the triple chunk chocolate, peanut butter and milk chocolate chunk.

What started out as an online store in 2018 has since turned into a brick-and-mortar shop at Funan. Before we go on, let’s get one thing straight. There’s nothing nasty about these calorie-laden, jumbo-sized cookies. We don’t know how they do it but each cookie is chewy, chunky and a tad bit crunchy – trust us, the proof is in the pudding. The flavours may seem standard for dessert fiends, but boy are they decadent. Take the Oh! Smores and Choco Bueno, for example. The former is stuffed with gooey marshmallows (break the cookie and watch it stretch), while the latter is mounted by a piece of Kinder Bueno.

Here’s another ice cream parlour that puts out decadent molten lava cookies. Cut your spoon into the cookie and you’ll get a sweet puddle of matcha or chocolate oozing out. Don’t forget to top it with a scoop of ice cream to add a little frost to the warm cookie. Oh, and the e-store offers more cookie flavours such as red velvet with cream cheese filling and chocolate chip with speculoos filling.

We have to say, Guilt’s marketing is on point. Just take a look at its site and you’ll know what we’re talking about. With tongue-in-cheek names for OTT cookies such as 50 Shades of Grey (Earl Grey vanilla cookie with pistachio and honeycomb toffee) and Tinder Surprise (fudge brownie with salted caramel hidden inside a chocolate chip cookie), you just can’t help but be curious. And after trying a box of ‘em, we’re totally sold – or should we say, guilty as charged!
Guilt, order online
Old Seng Choong
Known for its bakes inspired by local flavours, Old Seng Choong takes its experimentation to the next level by doling out crunchy cookies in flavours like laksa, satay, mala and goreng pisang (fried banana). If you’re a traditionalist at heart, you can stick to Earl Grey and coffee cookies, which are equally delish.

We’re pretty sure there’s a Famous Amos store just a stone’s throw away from you. Or you could simply follow the heady scent of these crunchy cookies baking in the oven. Get ’em by weight: 200g, 300g or 400g. Our top flavours would have to be no-nut chocolate chip, butterscotch chip pecan, and white chocolate chip macadamia.

So, there you have it. The best cookies in Singapore. Happy munching, folks!
