Spearheaded by owner, baker and theatre actor Juwanda Hassim, The Fabulous Baker Boy had a glorious 10 years at The Foothills of Fort Canning before announcing their closure in June last year due to the pandemic.

However, fans of the well-loved cafe did not have to grieve for long as the establishment announced a few months later that they’d be returning to the F&B scene in Jan 2021.

Now, The Fabulous Baker Boy is back — bigger and better — at Aliwal Arts Centre.

“Our new location is a combination of the two great passions in my life,” said Juwanda. “Food and the arts. I love entertaining on stage and at home and I am thrilled to open The Fabulous Baker Boy at the Aliwal Arts Centre”.

Its new tagline — Big Love Bakery and Soul Kitchen — reflects Juwanda’s journey of gratitude that has led him to the opening of his brainchild at the spanking new venue.

“I could not have done this without the love and support of friends and former customers,” he said. “So many people reached out to help us find a new location that it was only a matter of time before the curtains came up again.”

The Fabulous Baker Boy continues to be a multi-concept bakery, patisserie, cafe and restaurant, but with a larger 70-seater space that oozes cool and casual cafe vibes in a palette of pastel colours.
