Ice-cream cafe Creamier will close its Toa Payoh outlet on June 30, as it is unable to renew its lease. It is the first Creamier Handcrafted Ice Cream and Coffee outlet that opened back in November 2011, and is located at Block 128 Toa Payoh Lorong 1. The brand, which has gained a loyal following over the years, is known for its delicious handcrafted ice-cream flavours and house-made waffles.
In a Facebook post on March 19, Creamier thanked its landlady and staff as well as neighbours in the Toa Payoh West Market & Food Centre. The post adds: “What we will definitely miss the most is the community – from the kids running around, the friendly faces of our neighbours, and our regulars whose favourite ice-cream flavours we know by heart.” As a “farewell gift”, it also teased a “special flavour” that will be released to commemorate the store.
For ice-cream fans, this is sad news indeed. But not to worry, you can still find Creamier at two of their other outlets: Gillman Baracks and Tiong Bahru. And if you need more artisanal ice-cream fixes of unique flavours, we’ve compiled some below which you might not have heard of or tried yet – here’s the inside scoop in the gallery below!
The Shibuya-style thick toast might not look like much to the uninitiated, but it takes only a bite to be convinced of this sinfully buttery, gratifyingly fragrant wonder.
Ice cream flavours go from the usual suspects to unique flavours like melon and parma ham, white truffle, coconut kaya swirl and more.
Dessert Project is at 22 Havelock Road.
Even on a weeknight, patrons spill out to the community tables outside ths HDB blocks and here’s why.
The waffles here are hard to top – fragrant thick squares that are crisp on the outside and fluffy on the inside – but the ice cream here does just that. Must tries: sea salt gula melaka, as well as earl grey lavender.
Creamier at #01-835, Block 128 Toa Payoh Lorong will close after June 30. You can still find Creamier at Gillman Baracks, 5a Lock Road and at Tiong Bahru, #01-18, 78 Yong Siak St. Visit creamier.com.sg
5. Sunday Folks
If you just did a double take at the resemblence, that’s because Sunday Folks is Creamier’s younger sister, served instead with perfectly shaped swirls of soft serve and drizzled with toppings.

6. Holy Cow Creamery
We’re sold: Ice-cream goes with any dessert, cookies included.
