We got the sugar rush trying out these top macaron places in Singapore!

When it comes to the ingredients, the preparation, and even the texture, macarons are in a completely different league of their own — assuming you get the preparation part right.

If not, then people wouldn’t be able to tell if you really were attempting to bake macarons or just a batch of crinkles with all the cracked and uneven shells left behind.

The good news is you can skip the hard part and just fast forward to munching on as many macarons as you can afford (and stomach) with these top places we tried and tested!

When the owner spent over a decade learning a variety of techniques to apply to their macarons, you know they’re going to be extraordinary. This is the story of Annabella Patisserie.

The French-Japanese brainchild of Ms. Annabella Sonwelly, this Patisserie is often praised for its batch of macarons that are always freshly baked to suit anyone with a sweet tooth.

Macarons are the crème de la crème of this shop, which is why it has so many flavors like Earl Gray, Milo Dinosaur, Tiramisu, Creme Brulee, Tiramisu, and the list continues.

Each individual macaron is finely crafted by AnnaBella Patisserie’s team of bakers, which are masters in the art of creating crisp shells paired with soft and creamy fillings.

Custom-made pastries are also a thing here, so it’s just another day at this office for them if you see any Disney-themed macarons on display or via their socials.

Bonheur Patisserie


Address: 1 Tessensohn Road #01-13
Contact Details: +65 9221 6636

Operating Hours: Monday to Friday: 12 PM – 6 PM

      Saturday to Sunday: CLOSED

Bonheur Patisserie is quite a fitting name for this business since it’s French for “Happiness Confectionary”, which is what you can associate its lovely macarons with.

The normal-shaped macarons are already quite a treat, but Bonheur Patisserie likes to be creative and often bakes custom themes for their macarons to suit the occasion as well.

For instance, the shop’s last CNY set featured a Vanilla-flavored White Fortune Cat macaron and a Strawberry-flavored Red Daruma macaron.

The list goes on with “Go Local 2.0” flavors such as Porcini Salted Egg, Chrysanthemum, Orh Nee, Pandan Coconut, Ong Lai Tart, and Yuan Yang.

As a pro tip, these kinds of sets sell out pretty quickly, so be sure to pre-order yours as soon as you see a set you’re interested in.

TWG Tea is famous around Singapore and even worldwide for being a luxury tea brand, but do you know that it also does a great job in the macarons department?

As much as it specializes in tea, TWG’s macarons are as authentic as you can get without going to an actual patisserie in France. 

They’re also packaged just as how you’d imagine a brick-and-mortar shop would package them, neat and aesthetic in single or multi-row boxes.

The macarons themselves are often infused with the same flavors as the shop’s tea, which is another trademark of TWG.

Also, this goes without saying, but their macarons go well with their tea because who doesn’t love a palate cleanser every now and then after munching on some sweets?

What country is famous for macarons?

France is well known for being the country of origin for macarons, sandwich-like confections with shells made out of meringue and ganache center fillings.

The modern macaron is known to have originated in Paris, France, where Parisian baker Pierre Desfontaines is often credited for its creation.

Macarons were popularized by Ladurée in Paris in the 1930s and later on were made with even more flavors in the 1980s thanks to French pastry chef Pierre Hermé.

Why are macarons so expensive?

Macarons are often sold with a high price tag because of the type and quality of ingredients used and the difficulty and technique in making and storing them correctly.

Unlike other pastries that typically only use flour and sugar, macarons involve using almond flour and egg whites. 

While the ingredients may not be that expensive on their own, it all adds up when you factor in the number of batches to be made as well as the time and labor needed to make them.
