Lucia The Brownie Bar
Brownie lovers, make your way to Raffles City Shopping Centre, stat. Lucia The Brownie Bar (formerly Lucia Cakes) has opened a new store at this convenient city location and it’s the perfect excuse to get a bite. Specialising in fudgy, moist and decadent brownies, all its sweet treats are hand-made in small batches using quality ingredients.
Get a box of bite-sized brownies in your favourite flavour, or grab a box of four flavours for the perfect indulgence. We recommend the latter to try a variety of its delectable treats: the nutty box offers macadamia, Nutella, peanut butter and salted caramel brownies, while the non-nutty box stocks triple chocolate, Oreo, Biscoff and salted caramel bites. Whichever you choose, your cravings will be thoroughly satisfied. Not shopping for yourself? These brownie boxes make an excellent gift for dessert fanatics, and are also great for sharing with friends and family.
