    The Alley Cafe has something that gets sweet-tooth fanatics bouncing off the walls. This hidden modish cafe is ideal for sugary desserts, cakes and exquisite coffees. The top selling dessert is their cronuts – a hybrid of croissants and donuts, which comes in four varieties – Salted Caramel, Cinnamon Sugar, Caramel and Nutella Chocolate. However, Nutella Chocolate hits the roof all the time, where rich slathers of Nutella chocolate are spread on both sides with almond flakes. The fluffy pastries just ignite with the thick, rich chocolate goodness.  Innovative and inspiring desserts turn first-timers into regulars with the first bite. Drooling for dessert in the early morning or at midnight? No worries, it’s open around-the-clock. 

    Tips

    Easily overlooked; it’s opposite the famous Goddess of Mercy Temple.

    Things to expect

    Haven for the best desserts in town!

    Best with

    Array of coffees and fruit punches, yet the Chocolate Oreo Frappe is a must have one!

    The best of both worlds – fresh bakery and hipster cafe located side by side. It’s habitually engulfed with backpackers and those trailing street murals around Georgetown. This rustic cafe is well known for their bagels and homemade yogurt with assorted toppings, yet their croissants are worth mentioning too. The chocolate croissants at Rainforest Bakery have the perfect blend of sweetness; not overpowering the actual croissant itself. Chomp down your croissants with a mugshot of yogurt while watching the lively Chulia Street scenes. 

    Tips

    It’s always flocking with a crowd; patience is highly required.

    Things to expect

    The ideal breakfast place to kick off your day.
