Easties who are looking for another place to hang out with nice cakes, Flor Patisserie has officially opened a new outlet at Siglap! Do check out our review on their flagship store at Duxton here.
It is situated on
Drive, a short bus ride away from Kembengan MRT. For
those who drive, it shouldn’t be difficult to locate the place. Location-wise,
we felt that it is not very ideal because there are not many other shops around
that area. The allure for those who go there probably would be just to visit
What I like about the exterior of Flor, is the eye-catching blue signboard as well as the full-length transparent panes. Those who walk past the shop will be able to take a peek into the shop and see the array of cakes in the glass displays. Who can resist the temptation of getting one after looking at how colorful and pretty the cakes look?

We arrived at Flor and were warmly welcomed by the friendly staff there. Heidi Tan, the Operations Manager gave us an introduction of the place and showed us to the food reception. Heidi helms the outlet at Siglap and would be the brain behind many new interesting flavors to come!
We felt that the people at Flor really put in a lot of thought for the opening by preparing mini versions of their cakes. It allows us to try the various flavors without feeling full too fast. We really love the whole setting of the food reception. It felt like a mini tea party with checkered table mat, baskets and happy colors.

Besides the different variety of cakes, we were also honored to try out their handmade croissants which they are going to include into their new brunch and savory menu only in Siglap. The texture of the croissants are perfectly flaky and the butter taste not too overwhelming. Personally, we prefer the butter taste to be a bit stronger. We can’t wait to try out their other savory pastries soon!
Okay, back to the cakes! Flor specializes in Mille Feuille cakes
that are baked fresh daily. They only use the fresh ingredients and achieve
aeration of their cakes by using special techniques. A tour in their kitchen
proves that they use fresh fruits to achieve the flavors of their cakes.

The Avocado Mousse with Lemon Jelly is a new creation. We really like the avocado flavor which is rich and creamy. Heidi shared with us that she is brainstorming on how to infuse this flavor into the pastries so that it does not disintegrate or become watery due to warm temperature. We look forward to the new Avocado dessert creation!

Being a usual glutton, I could not resist buying a Wakakusayama. It’s a matcha swiss roll cake infused with honey and their special homemade Azuki bean cream. We felt that the Green Tea flavor was pleasantly rich. Behold, Green Tea Lovers, this would be a cake that is a must try!
The outlet at Siglap has more seating capacity and space than the Flagship store at Duxton. Hence, Heidi shared that they will be having a café concept here in Siglap. Tea and coffee will be listed in their menu to pair it with their cakes and pastries. Personally, I like this concept of sipping tea and having some cake. We got to try their Hibiscus Tea which was perfect for neutralizing the sweet of the desserts.
