Well look no further because we've gathered up 8 delicious halal desserts you can find in or near Orchard Road! Now it'll be even easier to take a break from shopping and satisfy your sweet tooth. ?
1. Lava cake @ Charlie Brown Cafe
Character cafes are always a good idea if you're on the lookout for something sweet! The Charlie Brown Cafe at Orchard Cineleisure has lava cake, pancakes, crepes and even brownies to choose from.

2. Cupcakes @ Butter Studio
Butter Studio is known for their beautifully-decorated custom cakes, but you can also buy individual slices or even cupcakes if you're just craving a quick bite. ? Sink your teeth into Sea Salt Nutella tarts, Chocolate Chip Almond cookies, and their signature Magical Unicorn cupcakes! Their cupcakes are all whimsically decorated, and come in flavours like red velvet toffee, snickers caramel, and strawberry white chocolate. #HHWT Tip: Their retail counter at Takashimaya doesn't have any seating space, so if you want to sit down to enjoy your desserts, you can head to their bakery cafe at Jalan Besar instead.

3. Donuts @ Dunkin' Donuts
For a quick bite, there's nothing that can beat the taste of a sweet, sugar-coated donut - and Dunkin' Donuts has just what you need to satisfy your donut cravings.

5. Sundaes @ Swensen's
Swensen's is definitely a favourite when it comes to ice cream desserts! Their sundaes are legendary, particularly the Sticky Chewy Chocolate that consists of their signature sticky chewy chocolate ice cream drizzled with hot chocolate fudge. ?

7. Cheesecake @ The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf
The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf is already a favourite for (you guessed it) coffee and tea, but their cheesecake is a great idea for a mid-day treat too!

8. Mango sticky rice @ Saap Saap Thai
Funan Mall isn't located directly along Orchard Road, but we think it's worth a visit for Saap Saap Thai's sticky mango rice! The rice is sweet with a hint of saltiness and balanced out by the sour-sweet of the mango. ? They also have a variety of coconut soft serve, mango ice cream, and of course Thai milk tea drinks to make you dream about visiting Bangkok again.
