Dig into some Danish delights at Leckerbaer Singapore’s new flagship, where tea and treats wrap you in cozy comfort.
The Copenhagen-based pastry shop has moved into one of Keong Saik’s shophouses offering its signature småkagers, or bite-sized butter cookies, small bakes and sourdough sandwiches. The brand is ready to spread the Christmas joy with store-exclusive flavors to gift loved ones this festive season.
“This has been a long dream in-the-making and it is our hope to provide a retreat with little reminders of joy, especially in precarious times like today,” Vijay Pillai, CEO of Caerus Holding, wrote in a media release.
Like its sweets, the 20-seater, 900 square foot space is petite. Inside, a row of tables lead you to a lounge area where more tables are snug beside one another to accommodate larger groups. Their mission is to put forth hygge, a Scandinavian term for a cozy lifestyle which, ironically, might be too close for comfort for some who would prefer some privacy.
Nonetheless, the space is truly hygge with minimal decor and plenty of wood furniture and rattan walls that scream Scandinavia. Tables at the back are perfect for shots with enough natural sun rays permeating from the skylight above.
Once stepped in, their pastry counter boasts colorful small bakes like their Salted Caramel Brownie (S$7), Almond & Cherry (S$7.5) and Hazelnut (S$7.5) lined up next to their Dark Chocolate (S$8.5) and Passionfruit Salted Caramel (S$8) tarts.
To celebrate Christmas and its opening, the store put together a selection of festive cookies that include four new flavors such as Chocolate, a bite-sized brownie made with calamansi and blackcurrant curd, Vanilla, a buttery cake with lemon and blackberry curd, Hazelnut, a cinnamon-spiced pastry piped with lemon meringue, and Passion Fruit, a blackcurrant-dusted meringue flower atop a passion fruit and blueberry curd and almond pastry.
Each goodie goes for S$2.80 and are available in boxes of eight (S$22), 12 (S$32) and 16 (S$40). Or get a bite of everything with their S$34 set that comes with two small bakes, four småkagers and two individual pots of tea.
Bigger bites include their flagship exclusives Smoked Salmon and OnsenEgg (S$21), made with strips of Norwegian salmon, zucchini, pickled onions, cream cheese topped with a soft boiled egg, and the Crab & Avocado Salsa (S$20), which comes with shreds of crab meat and avocado salsa.
They are all best washed down with a cup of tea freshly brewed and brought in from the Los Angeles-based tea house Art of Tea. Flavors include Happy, a fruity and light concoction made with raspberries and fresh hibiscus flowers; White Coconut Creme, a tropical coconut white tea; and Pacific Coast Mint Tea, a blend of spearmint and peppermint.
This is Leckerbaer’s second outlet in Singapore after opening last July at the Isetan Shaw House.
