The circle croissants, stuffed to the brim with delectable fillings, first made its way to our shores in 2022 after originating in a French-inspired Bakery in New York. Lafayette Grand Cafe and Bakery attracted the masses when they began selling unique pastries – with people queuing for hours – to get a taste of the Suprême. Wonderfully, Singapore-based bakeries jumped on the trend and now sell their own versions of circle croissants right here in Singapore. Here’s the best places to find viral circle croissants, cube croissants, cruffins, and other unique versions to satisfy your cravings.
1. Swish Rolls
Swish Rolls was the first to create a copycat of these drooling circle croissants in Singapore in September 2022. Named Croons, there are now a variety of rotating flavours. Think the likes of Berries Sundae, Biscoff, Loaded Pistachio, Crackly Sea Salt Butter, Ham N Cheese and Deep Dark Chocolate, and many more favourites. Each Croon is made fresh daily and you can even get a box of five for just $30 to share. Order online here or visit the store.
