A new international brand has landed in Singapore and pastry lovers are in for a treat. The world-famous patisserie Mr Holmes Bakehouse is finally in Singapore! Opened on 12 July, it’s their first outlet in Southeast Asia.
If you’ve not heard of them, they are one of the first bakehouses that made cruffins explode onto everyone’s IG feeds. These IG darlings are basically eye-catching croissants moulded into muffin shapes while being loaded with indulgent amounts of cream.
Mr Holmes Bakehouse’s Singapore outlet can be found on level 1 of Pacific Plaza, decked out in vibrant shades of pink and white.
All eyes will definitely be on their iconic Peace and “I Got Baked” neon signs, which serve as perfect backdrops for those IG-worthy shots.
It’s like a candy wonderland inside, with tasteful white tiles lined across the walls while the bright pink ceiling sets the mood for a quirky dine-in experience.
That said, as striking as the decor is, the pastries in the display case are even more eye-catching. Vividly colourful and intricately crafted, they are sure to draw some drool out of anyone’s mouths.
Since most in Singapore have probably never tried Mr Holmes Bakehouse, it’s a no-brainer to go straight for their signature Cruffins (S$5.80).
The flaky “muffins” are available in 3 flavours — Mint Chocolate Chip Cream, Tiramisu Cream, and Peanut Butter Milkshake (only available on weekends).
Of course, if their cruffins are sold out then you can go for the next best thing, their Croissants. They are essentially the same thing but differently shaped, after all.
Croissant varieties include classics like Butter (S$4), Matcha (S$5), and Chocolate (S$5), but there are also more unique flavours like Lemon Meringue Pie (S$7.50) and Raspberry Hibiscus (S$7.50).
Besides crafting those flaky viennoiseries, Mr Holmes Bakehouse also makes their own donuts, the trending item in Singapore at the moment.
You can’t go wrong with timeless flavours like Chocolate Cream (S$5.80) and Strawberries & Cream (S$5.80) but the more adventurous might want to get their hands on their weekend special Plum Yuzu Jam Donut (S$6.50) instead.
Right now, the bakehouse is selling out fast, especially for cruffins. If you plan to stay away from the queues at the moment, you should know that they refresh their bakes every three months — so don’t miss out on any items that may catch your eye.
