Dark, white or milk – when it comes to chocolate, we don’t discriminate. Here’s the scoop on the best spots in town to get your chocolate fix.
1. Wimbly Lu Chocolates
Address: 15-2 Jalan Riang Singapore 358987 | Tel: 6289 1489 | Opening Hours: 12pm – 10.30pm (Tue to Fri), 9pm – 11pm (Sat and Sun) | Price range: $2 – $30 |
Milo chocolate truffles? Say no more. Wimbly Lu has been in the scene for quite sometime, satisfying many a sweet tooth in Singapore. While they are known for their waffles and homemade ice cream, Wimbly Lu also does some pretty amazing chocolate truffles. Sure, at $2 a pop they may be somewhat pricey – especially since the truffles look quite simple at first glance – but trust me, these handmade babies are worth the money (and calories). The good people at Wimbly Lu use real Belgian chocolate and premium ingredients, so you can really taste the difference.

2. Laurent Bernard Chocolatier
Address: #01-11, The Pier at Robertson Quay, 80 Mohammad Sultan Road, 239013 | Tel: 6235 9007 | Opening Hours: 1pm – 12am (Tue to Thu), 1pm – 1am (Fri to Sat), 8.30am – 11pm (Sun) | Price range: $5 – $72 |
Laurent Bernard Chocolatier may not be one of those cool, hipster cafes with an Instagram reputation that precedes it, but the master chocolatier really doesn’t need it. Whether it’s truffles, cakes or tarts, Laurent Bernard does chocolate right. You know the struggle is real when you can’t decide which chocolate treat to pick – from the array of pralines in varying flavours, to the sinful Trianon cake (chocolate cream with a hazelnut biscuit base…yes it’s delicious and yes, you should try it).

Address: 73 Loewen Road #01-15/16, Singapore 248843 | Tel: 6289 1489 | Opening Hours: 10am – 5pm (Tue to Sat) | Price range: $14 – $56 |
Tucked away in a quiet corner of Loewen Road, ANJALICHOCOLAT is a hidden gem for chocolate aficionados. Don’t let its small and unassuming appearance fool you, because the store is a treasure trove of chocolate truffles. From unique flavours like Lemongrass Coconut and Rose Truffle, to classic favourites like Pistachio Gianduja and Salted Caramel, ANJALICHOCOLAT is the perfect place to pick up some bon bons. Go on, treat yo self.

4. Beans to Bars
Address: Available online or at selected retailers. | Tel: 91768178 | Price range: $9 – $80 |
Bean-to-bar chocolate may not be that popular in Singapore yet, but Beans to Bars is certainly paving the way with their carefully curated range of artisan creations. Stemmed from a desire to produce quality chocolates without having to pay exorbitant prices, Beans to Bars offers a wide selection of gourmet chocolate that is handmade by their in-house artisans.
Interesting chocolate flavours include Peanut Butter & Sea Salt, Wild Porcini Mushroom, Cinnamon Vanilla and Pepper & Sesame.

5. Poppy & Co
Address: Available at selected NAIISE outlets. | Price: $9 per bar |
Poppy & Co doesn’t exactly specialise in artisan chocolates, but their Speculoos Cookie Butter Chocolate is still worth a mention on this list. I’m sure you already know that Speculoos is just about the most delicious biscuit ever (if you don’t, then you’re missing out sister), so it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Speculoos chocolate is ahhh-mazing.
Poppy & Co’s Speculoos Cookie Butter Chocolate is quite frankly as delicious as it sounds. Each bar is handmade with Swiss milk chocolate and a generous sprinkling of crunchy Speculoos cookie crumbs, so you get a mix of textures and flavours. Definitely worth the calories, we say.
