Best ice cream places in Singapore to beat the heat

By August 30, 2018Local Life

TL;DR – It’s getting hot in here.

Is it just us or is the weather reallllyyy starting to get to us these days? And if you need an excuse reason to get yourself some ice cream, here are some of our favourite parlours to cool down at.

1. Creamiervia

Know for its handcrafted premium ice cream and waffles, Creamier has grown quite a following since it first opened in Toa Payoh in 2011. Today, there are two other outlets and an equally popular sister brand, Sunday Folks. The Belgian waffles are well-baked, crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. Best served piled with your favourite scoop of ice cream – we highly recommend Earl Grey Lavender, Roasted Pistachio and Sea Salt Gula Melaka.

2. Sunday Folks

Sunday Folks was started with the idea of enjoying a slow and relaxing Sunday. The main difference between Creamier and Sunday Folks is the texture of the ice cream. At Sunday Folks, you can enjoy soft serves instead, which is less dense and creamy as compared to the gelato version served at Creamier. Additionally, Sunday Folks has a bigger seating capacity than Creamier too.
