Patisserie Woo opens cafe with pastries and gelato in Bukit Timah
If you’re a fan of artisanal cakes and pastries, you may have heard of Patisserie Woo. Formerly known as Patissier Woo, the bakery cafe was founded by ex-banker Melissa Woo, and has three takeaway outlets islandwide. Most recently, they’ve unveiled their first dine-in concept at Guthrie House, located just a five-minute walk from Sixth Avenue MRT Station.
The new flagship cafe is decked out in pastel hues and elegant floral motifs, making it a suitable place for intimate catchups. While the front of the cafe exudes a semi-luxurious look with plush sofas and marble tables, the back sports a more minimalist aesthetic, complete with larger tables for bigger groups.
The entire cafe can also be booked for private events, including birthday parties and baby showers.
At Patisserie Woo, they’ve mastered the art of blending classic European desserts with beloved Asian flavours such as yuzu, sour plum, and matcha. A classic flavour is the Meyer Lemon Tart ($9+), comprising a zesty Meyer lemon curd encased in their signature tart crust. In case you’re wondering, those beautiful flower petals on their tarts are not just for show—they’re edible and locally sourced.
Another crowd favourite is the Pistachio Tart ($9.50+), featuring house-made pistachio ganache, fluffy pistachio sponge, and a crispy wafer, all encased in a crumbly tart crust and finished with caramelised pistachios.
During our visit, Melissa mentioned that their Yuzu Mango Cake ($7.50+) was another popular pick. This citrusy cake features a fluffy almond sponge piped with Koichi yuzu mousse and layered with mango jelly, offering a harmonious blend of sweet and tangy flavours.
Chocolate fans can order the Chocolate Banana Parfait ($10+) instead, which sees a moist chocolate sponge topped with fresh whipped cream and banana slices. Otherwise, the Matcha Opera Cake ($7.50+) is also a must-try, starring a soft matcha sponge layered with dark chocolate ganache and rich matcha buttercream.
Patisserie Woo has also launched a range of new gelato flavours, all whipped up from scratch and free from preservatives and additives. Their gelato flavours are available on a rotational basis and are crafted in small batches daily.
We recommend the Pistachio ($6+) for something nutty and rich, or the Pink Guava & Sour Plum ($5+) for something tangy and refreshing. The consistency of the latter is something between that of a gelato and a sorbet, though it leans towards a creamier texture compared to your average sorbet. It’s also vegan and dairy-free.
Try their Sables & Cream ($5+) too, which is the cafe’s take on the classic cookies and cream flavour. Creamy and incredibly milky, this gelato is made with their popular Dark Chocolate Sea Salt cookies that are baked in-house.
If you’re looking for a caffeine fix, Patisserie Woo’s got you covered with the usual suspects, including Flat White ($5+) and Long Black ($4+). During our visit, we had the Blueberry & Elderflower Spritzer ($6+), a refreshing concoction made using blueberries and elderflower compote.
