One of the best bakery shops in Singapore, Bread Society by BreadTalk, operates within ION Orchard shopping centre (2 Orchard Turn). (UPDATE 2022: THE SHOP HAS CLOSED)
The bakery store offers a selection of 50 kinds of freshly baked products with the philosophy of ‘back to basics‘, drawing inspiration from simple, traditional, classic & time-honored baking techniques.
Prepared on the premises, the products use an abundance of highly nutritious ingredients, such as dark rye, wholemeal flour, and wheat grass.
At the shops, you can choose from a range of sweet buns, Euro-inspired breads, Danish pastries, toasts, as well as natural yeast bread products.
Of these, the sweet buns, which come in pleasantly surprising flavors, are a perfect companion as either tea-time treats or as after-meal desserts.
The Sweet Buns selection highlights include 45RPM dough twists, Chestnut Brioche Sticks, Tom Yam Seafood buns, Custard Brioches, Summer Berrries Brioches, Strawberry Brioches, Chocolate Melon Brioches, and Cinnamon Buns.
Bread Society by BreadTalk’s European-inspired breads, meanwhile, will transport you to the idyllic cafés of Paris and the pub gardens of Munich.
Take your pick from savoury and crispy German-style pretzels, the French sourdough classic – Pain de Campagne, Mediterranean-influenced Sundried Tomato Bagels, Spinach & Cheese breads, Wholemeal Loafs, Mentaiko Baguettes (topped with Japanese-style baked seasoned cod roe), and Country Breads.
Danish pastries are wonderfully light and delicious creations, each filled with mouth-watering ingredients that melt with every bite.
At the shop, the Danish selection features Almond Pretzels, Apple Tarte Tatins, Apricot Croissants, Chocolate & Pistachio Pretzels, Croissant aux Amande pastries, Kiwi Danish, Lemon Cream Danish, Orange Danish, Strawberry Croissants, and Strawberry Danish.
The range of toasts is not boring by any means, as it includes exquisite patisserie creations with soft, perfectly baked loaves and exceptionally creative ingredients from blueberries to cranberry cream cheese, potatoes and ham, and chucky cheese.
Finally, the Natural Yeast bread series uses selected raisins and other fresh fruits to carefully cultivate fermented yeast, and a 10 to 13 day process to produce the masterfully hand-crafted natural yeast loaves.
Categories of natural yeast bread bakery products that you can choose from include Black Glutinous Rice Longan, Brown Sugar Longan, Double Chocolate, Earl Grey Lychee, Walnut Coffee, Spinach & Cheese, Pineapple Blueberry, Orange Chocolate, Onion & Cheese, as well as Mango Raisin.
