New Restaurants, Cafes and Bars in Singapore [Dec 2021]

We highlight more than 90 new restaurants, cafes, bakeries, dessert bars and specialty food stores that have opened around town over the past month.

New players with a first outlet during November 2021, which are highlighted with a [NEW] prefix in the listing below, include Marguerite, O'bok Dabang and Alice Boulangerie.

There's also new outlets from Wolf Burgers, Gong Cha and Laderach Chocolatier Suisse.

Brands to have found a new home include Bottle Tree Cafe, which have taken up residence at the Science Discovery Centre, and The Original Botak Jones.

Over on the Botanic Gardens there's a new food hall, Cluny Food Hall.

Our personal favourite, though, is Coexist Coffee Co, serving up coffees, pastries and light meals.
