Craving a bite of these trending circular croissants? Here’s where to find them in Singapore.
We don’t know about you, but we’re suckers for a good pastry. So of course, the buttery, circular croissants at Lafayette Grand Cafe and Bakery in New York caught our eye when they started trending on TikTok. You can imagine our joy when we learnt you can now get them at local bakeries and cafes. These round pastries are super Instagrammable, extra fluffy and flaky, and filled with cream. They’re also known as croons (croissants that are moon-shaped, my colleague explains). And while the nickname doesn’t sound too appealing, you can bet they’re nothing short of delightful. Here’s where you can find these delish circular croissants in Singapore.
Cafes and bakeries with circular croissants in Singapore
1. Keong Saik Bakery
This has got to be one of our favourite casual bakeries in all of Singapore. We love it for its nostalgic goodies and sweet treats. Think along the lines of bandung cheese tarts and orh nee pastries. We’re not surprised it’s one of the first few places to introduce circular croissants in Singapore. Sink your teeth into croons that come in flavours like pistachio praline, cacio e pepe, genmaicha and milo.
Keong Saik Bakery, 33 Keong Saik Road, Singapore 089140
2. Yeast Side
We’re not shy of the love we have for the sourdough pizzas at Yeast Side. And of course, it’s gone ahead to wow our socks off with its own take on the croon. Make a pit stop at its Farrer Park outlet if you want to enjoy buttery circular croissants in three flavours: almond, black forest and vanilla pistachio. We don’t think one will be enough, so head down quick before they sell out for the day.
Yeast Side, #01-06, 2 Perumal Road, Singapore 218773
3. Swish Rolls
We can’t get enough of the colourful croon cross sections on Swish Roll’s social media pages. Each one is loaded with creamy goodness and comes in flavours like pistachio, sea salt butter, summer berries, dark Valrhona chocolate, and ham and cheese. It makes us want to tear into one of its circular croissants ourselves. These croons sell fast, so head down early to its Cluny Court outlet. You can also order them online if you want to avoid a wasted trip, but take note the next preorder is only available starting 24 November.
Swish Rolls, #01-02B, Cluny Court, 501 Bukit Timah Road, Singapore 259760
4. Le Levain
Le Levain is well known for its flaky croissants, so you know it’s one of the first places to look for circular croissants in Singapore. Its croons come in myriad creative flavours that stand out from other bakeries and cafes. We’re talking bubur cha cha, truffle cream cheese, and passion fruit with mango. You know what we’re having for afternoon tea today.
Le Levain, 23 Hamilton Road, Singapore 209193
This Muslim-owned cafe may be new on the block, but it’s wasting no time in jumping on the circular croissants trend in Singapore. We love that it puts out flavours that are popular with the local crowd. Think kaya, black sesame and matcha white chocolate. It only sells 30 pieces a day on weekends, so you’ll want to snap these babies up fast.
Gamo, #01-75, 231 Bain Street, Singapore 180231
6. Nuage Boulangerie & Patisserie
Don’t underestimate this little bakery. It doles out an array of delicious pastries that will take your taste buds to seventh heaven. Pretty fitting since its name translates to cloud in French. Dig into matcha azuki, chocolate and black forest-flavoured croons at its physical outlet. Or you can also order online to take home and share with the fam.
Nuage Boulangerie & Patisserie, 47 Kampong Bahru Road, Singapore 169361
