Thanks to our year-round summer weather, ice cream and Singapore are a match made in heaven. From unusual flavours to a twist on the traditional ice cream sandwich, here is six of our favourite ice cream parlours scattered across the Little Red Dot.

Birds of Paradise Gelato Boutique

Situated along East Coast Road and at the new Jewel Changi Airport, Birds of Paradise Gelato Boutique is an influencers dream thanks to its designer feature wall, decorated with plants and leaves of different shapes and sizes. Inspired by the botanical flavours of nature, their gelato flavours include Strawberry Basil, Roasted Sesame, Spiced Pear, Earl Grey Lemongrass and the ever popular White Chrysanthemum to name a few.


Creamier is an independent ice cream and coffee shop with three locations across the island: Toa Payoh, Gillman Barracks, and Tiong Bahru. The café specialises in creating premium ice creams and sorbets using their own recipes and unique production process. In fact, all their ice creams are handcrafted in small batches daily at their onsite kitchens.

Tom’s Palette

Located inside Shaw Tower, Tom’s Palette is known for its experimental flavours (think Salted Egg Yolk, Nasi Lemak and Mango Sticky Rice), and brand’s philosophy revolves around fresh and raw ingredients, handmade without the addition of stabilisers, premixes, or artificial flavouring.

Dopa Dopa Creamery

Situated along South Bridge Road, Dopa Dopa Creamery offers up a selection of homemade, all-natural artisanal gelato, which are curated by an Italian chef. The adorable little café has also put its own spin on the traditional ice cream sandwich by offering scoops in a buttery, flakey croissant.

Butterknife Folk

Since opening, Butterknife Folk has only had one goal in mind: to set the benchmark for artisanal gelato in Singapore. The brand offers a diverse range of flavours, from run of the mill classics to out of the box creations like Miso Sexy and Roquefort Bleu. Every tub is handcrafted in small batches and when it runs out, you never know what flavour will come next.


Serving fresh, natural, and handcrafted ice cream, Merely has two locations across Singapore: Sunshine Plaza and Tampines. While the brand might not have the widest variety, every flavour is individually crafted with the best quality ingredients. For example, their classic chocolate ice cream is made with premium Valrhona Cocoa Powder while their pistachio ice cream is made with premium pistachios from Italy.
