A list of the best cafés in Tiong Bahru wouldn't be complete without the one that loves the neighbourhood so much, it named itself after it. This boulangerie – which first opened its flagship store at the eponymous neighborhood – set up by celebrity baker Gontran Cherrier together with the Spa Esprit group, serves French artisanal breads, tarts and coffee at three locations around town. Savory options like the Squid Ink Sandwich ($8.50) and Ham and Melted Cheese on Focaccia ($8) are great for satisfying the peckish while sweet options like the ever-popular Almond Croissant ($3.20) and the sinful Kouign-Amann ($3.50) are not-to-be-missed especially when bought fresh off the oven.
