With over 50k Instagram followers (and counting), Holam Bakery is a popular cake shop that specialises in mille crepe cake. Made with 18 layers of crepe and generous spreads of delicious whipped cream, these decadent cake slices are offered in an array of flavours such as taro, earl grey tea, and even durian. If you can’t decide what to try, opt for its ‘eight-flavour box’ and get yourself a little bit of everything. Just remember to place your orders via Whatsapp because it doesn’t accept any orders from DMs or calls.

While many cake shops attempt to lure foodies with their extravagant-looking creations, The Mochiffon Cake sets itself apart with its simple but original chiffon cakes. Seamlessly combining Japanese mochi and chiffon cake, the shop provides an assortment of cake rolls, cake slices, and whole round lava cakes that come in various flavours and sizes. For those who are on a diet but craving sweet treats, you’ll be even happier to know that all of their desserts are low in sugar and free of preservatives.

One of the few dessert shops in Hong Kong that focuses solely on cream puffs, Healing Bakery prides itself in using a low-sugar recipe that allows you to indulge without the guilt. But what makes it truly stand out is their fillings. Not only will you get mouthfuls of whipped cream with every bite, but you’ll also get to chew on big chunks of Japanese mochi too! Along with the multitude of flavours available, it’s impossible to not fall in love with this Insta-famous bakery, or least with its delicious-looking feed.

Although Happy Roller Bakery only sells cake rolls, it still stands as one of the best bakeries in town for its long list of flavour options, which includes everything from classic choices like green tea and chocolate to more innovative ones like taro and sesame. Since all good things take time, it is recommended that orders should be placed four days in advance via DM or Whatsapp. Of course, you can also try your luck and head to their shop directly (message them for the address!) to see if your favourite flavours are available.
