There's nothing quite like the aroma of freshly baked pastry or biting into decadent cakes. Halal bakeries in Singapore are coming up in recent years and if you're looking for your next go-to spot for fresh bakes, head over to Maison Sucree! This Muslim-owned artisanal bakery-cafe in Redhill opened its doors last November and we'd say it's pretty much a hidden gem ?
Maison Sucree is a bakery by halal burger joint, Ashes Burnnit and it's helmed by Executive Pastry Chef Elzuan Japar and Head Baker Tommy Lim. It's located at an HDB block near Redhill Station and beside a prata shop, which makes it stand out with its blue exterior! Besides its main bakery, Maison Sucree also has another unit with indoor seating space and a few seats outdoors.
For something light, Maison Sucree's croissants are just what you need. It has received rave reviews from customers as it's buttery and soft on the inside and flaky on the outside - just what you'd expect from a good croissant! Take your pick of Almond, Butter and Chocolate Croissant as well as a seasonal croissant (like Rocher Nutella ?).

Maison Sucree's freshly baked Cinnamon Roll is another top pick. Topped with cream cheese frosting and biscuit crumble, you can expect a sweet indulgence as you bite into the Cinnamon Roll!
#HHWT Tip: Their croissants and cinnamon rolls sell out really early, so make sure you visit before noon if possible.
What sets them apart are their French-inspired tarts and pastries. The Lemon Meringue Tart, Signature Mille-Feuille and Paris-Brest are highly recommended. The Mille-Feuille is made up of layers of flaky pastry and filled with custard while the Paris-Brest has a generous filling of praline cream in its choux pastry (delicate pastry dough). Since you can't travel to France now, why not treat yourself to these instead?
Besides the fancy pastries, Maison Sucree also has tea cakes, cakes as well as freshly baked buns (from just $2!). The bakery-cafe has recently added croissant sandwiches like Truffle Egg Mayo, and plated desserts like Sticky Date Pudding! Plus, you can get your fix of waffles and ice-cream and coffee too ?
So, if you're looking for a new hangout spot for some good pastries, plan a date with your loved ones and head over to Maison Sucree!
