Ice Cream in SingaporeImage adapted from @overrun.sg, @aquas.sg, @smoocht

As Singapore’s heat continues to rise, so does our appetite for ice cream! Perhaps that’s why the popularity of ice cream cafes and shops have been skyrocketing – with many offering new flavours and even vegan (egg-less and milk-less) options. 

You can expect the unexpected – some of these new flavours like salted egg and durian chendol may raise some eyebrows, but they’ve been tried-and-tested to be fan favourites.

Here are 11 ice cream cafes and shops in Singapore where you’re sure to get your quality ice cream fix.

1. Aqua S Singapore – soft serve with cotton candy cloud


You won’t be feeling blue with Aqua S’ iconic aqua blue soft serves. Located above Orchard MRT, it’s easy to spot the store if you look out for the pastel hues of the soft serves and the matching fantasy cloud mural.

Hailing from Sydney, their signature Sea-Salt flavour is both sweet and savoury, a perfect balance that’s known to be hard to achieve. Other flavours like Taro, Ribena and Creme Brulee flavours are served for limited times and change up about twice a month, so you’ll have to look out for updates at their store. 

It’s $5.40 for a regular cup, while the large cup and black waffle cone both go at $6.40. To take your soft serve up a notch, add toppings at $0.80 each. The Popping Candy, Torched Marshmallow, Sweet Popcorn and Fairy Floss will take your dessert – and instagram feed – to the next level.

Just 4 flavours of soft serve are prepared every day, but are constantly switched so you’ll never be bored. Expect to see flavours like Coffee Caramel, Unicorn Tears, Cookie Butter and White Chocolate on one day, and Coconut Almond, Kiki & Cream, Earl Grey and Black Salted Caramel the next.

Another perk is that your friends and family who are vegan don’t have to miss out on the fun – as Little Damage will always have at least one vegan option every day.

6. Emma Soft Serve – brown sugar boba ice cream from Japan

Made with Japanese milk, its soft serve stays firmly in place, even when you flip the Soft Serve with Charcoal Cone ($4.80-$5.30) upside-down! This is due to the use of premium quality Japanese milk, which makes the soft serve thicker and creamier. It comes in different flavours, such as Charcoal Cheese, Cocoa Sprinkles and Matcha Dips

Also jumping on the brown sugar boba trend, Emma’s Soft Serve offers variations of its soft serve with Okinawan brown sugar pearls. You can get the Brown Sugar Bubble Soft ($5.80), or try the Wafer Bubble Mix Soft Serve ($6.80) which comes with a golden brown wafer.

10. Sunday Folks – photogenic soft serve and waffles


There’s no way we’re leaving Sunday Folks out of this list. Situated in Holland Village, it’s a go-to for ice cream enthusiasts and cafe hoppers alike who want a soft serve that looks as good as it tastes. What you may not have known, however, is that it’s owned by the same company that runs Creamier, an ice cream parlour in Toa Payoh.

What sets these 2 joints apart is the ice cream – Creamier focuses more on ice cream, while Sunday Folks brings their famous soft serve to the table. There are 6 flavours of soft serve, namely Summer Strawberries, Sea Salt Gula Melaka, Madagascar Vanilla, Earl Grey Lavender and Roasted Pistachio

Well-made waffles are the perfect match to a good soft serve, and the team at Sunday Folks knows it. Soft serve with 2 crisp yet fluffy waffles is priced at $11.80, or $8.80 for a single waffle.
