Best donuts in Singapore
1. Sourbombe Artisanal Bakery
The first in Singapore to spotlight the artisanal sourdough bomboloni – a combination of sourdough and bomboloni – this bakery’s creativity knows no bounds. It’s helmed by Genevieve Lee, runner-up of the first-ever MasterChef Singapore in 2018. Each treat is a light and fluffy flavour bomb, with varieties such as blueberry and lemon thyme, Basque burnt cheesecake, lavender lime mascarpone, hojicha caramel and the OG cinnabombe. Best of all, the brand has opened a physical store at Park Mall, offering cold brew coffee, house-made kombucha and dairy-free tea lattes to complement its bomboloni bites.
