If you’re a big cheesecake fan and would like to celebrate the upcoming National Cheesecake Day (30 July), you’ll be super chuffed to know that it’s not difficult to find the best cheesecake in Singapore – if you know where to look.
Enjoy the caramelised gooeyness of the recently popular Basque Burnt Cheesecake that exploded in popularity during last year’s Circuit Breaker? Or do you fancy a refreshing mix of fruit layered on top of dense cheesy goodness? Perhaps you simply crave for a good ol’ slice of crumbly New York Cheesecake? Well, whatever your cheesecake preferences, we’ve got you covered.
Ahead, be spoilt for choice with our round-up of the best cheesecakes in Singapore in all their fantastic, tangy, gooey, fluffy, savoury glory.
17 of the best cheesecakes in Singapore
1. Cat & the Fiddle
In a scene that’s absolutely teeming with delicious cheesecakes, Cat & the Fiddle stands out from the lot simply by being, hands down, one of the most accomplished cheesecake names in Singapore.
Helmed by award-winning patissier Daniel Tay (who was also the founder of Bakerzin before he sold off the business), Cat & the Fiddle serves up glorious cheesecake in almost any flavour you can imagine, and with the cheekiest names too!
From all-time favourites like cookies and cream and strawberry to taste bud-whetting creations like durian burnt basque and roselle yoghurt, we certainly wish we had more than one stomach so we could try them all. If you’re in an adventurous mood, simply buy them in an assorted box of eight randomly picked flavours to indulge your taste buds.
Prices start at S$42.90 for a classic Over the Moon New York cheesecake, and you may place your orders on the website. Cat & the Fiddle is located at eight locations island-wide, check out the full list of locations here.
2. Teaspoon of Love
Surprised to see a tea brand on this list? Well, don’t be. You can fully expect cheesecake bakes from local tea house Teaspoon of Love to be infused with – you got it – a teaspoon of tea! Teaspoon of Love is the proud creator of Singapore’s very first Da Hong Pao-infused burnt cheesecake, and we hear it goes down very well with a warm cup of tea by the side, too. Savour the subtle nutty notes of the oolong alongside the tangy, savoury cheese for a cheesecake flavour you never even knew you needed or wanted.
Prices start at S$51.90 for the 7-inch Da Hong Pao and Matcha cakes, and you may place your orders on the website.
Cheesecake addicts will know how quickly the dreamy treats get snapped up at Paparch, which is proudly Muslim-owned and halal.
With a wait-list that stretches for months (slots are filled till the end of August, for now, so you’ll need to try your luck when slots open for September), you’d be forgiven if you were curious to know what all the hype is about.
Well, here’s what: an outer crust that’s just the right amount of burnt for that perfect hint of caramel, with a sweet, melty, oozy heart. Paparch sells only cheesecakes in two iterations – original and matcha, not that it needs any more reasons to attract new fans!
4. The Last Piece
You may have already seen the signature crisp white cake box, all tied up with a pretty white ribbon to match, on Instagram. But have you actually tasted The Last Piece’s Japanese burnt cheesecakes yet?
We hear that this Insta-exclusive baker whips up cakes that taste as good as they look! With just the right amount of char on the top and a smooth gooey centre, you’ll definitely not regret unboxing them from their drool-worthy packaging.
To order, drop The Last Piece a DM on Instagram.
5. Beverly Hills Cheesecake
If you’ve always wondered what’s all the fuss over The Cheesecake Factory’s cheesecake was, now’s the perfect time to find out for yourself.
You can try these legendary cheesecakes for yourself now at Beverly Hills Cheesecake. Each slice is made in The Cheesecake Factory’s factory in the US, chilled, and air-flown right here, so you can be sure that what you’re tucking into is indeed the famed cheesecake itself.
We hear what’s mind-blowingly good are actually the more unique flavours like Reese’s peanut butter cups or the chocolate cherry flavours but really, what’s stopping you from having those on top of a slice of the good ol’ classic cheesecake?
Slices are priced starting from S$7.90, and S$89 for a whole cake, for the classic flavour. Beverly Hills Cheesecake is located at Raffles City Shopping Centre, #B1-70 and Westgate, #B2-01.
6. Cake Spade
Tofu cheesecake is another rendition of the classic version and the ones by Cake Spade just scream yummy.
Lighter cream cheese is used to create this gorgeously smooth and silky version of cheesecake, which sits on a sweet biscuit base (choose from Oreo or digestive) for that perfect juxtaposition of texture in every bite. Choose from three jelly-encased fruit toppings: mango, strawberry and peach; whatever your choice may be, it’s the right one.
The cheesecakes are priced starting at S$59 for a 6-inch cake or S$7.90 for a single slice. Check out the website for more pricing details for different sizes.

The centre also contains a surprising tinge of zesty lemon so you’ll end the bite with a refreshing pop of flavour.

Try the regular Basque burnt cheesecake for an inkling of why: there’s just that right amount of richness in the cream cheese, and it has the perfect creamy gooey texture to boot. There’s that faint hint of rum in the cheese too, for just the perfect little midday kick.
Prices start from S$8 for a Basque Burnt Cheesecake slice or S$66 for a whole cake. You can order your cakes from the website.
11. Fluff Bakery
What started out as a small home-based business has become a household name for the yummiest halal bakes, including cheesecakes.

Chewy fruit-encased jelly gently sitting atop soft, silky cheesecake, with a dense digestive biscuits base holding it all together? This sensory party in your mouth is a jelly cheesecake and the brand that started it all 14 years ago is still making them, in even more variations, flavours, and colours than before! Think durian, chendol, chocolate, strawberry, blueberry – you name it, and The Jelly Hearts probably got it on the menu,
Sink your teeth into the rainbow jelly cheesecakes that are made with rainbow-coloured layers of cream cheese and a signature strawberry jelly top.

You can also get this delicious classic with blueberry or walnut toppings for contrasting flavours and textures.

Not all cheesecakes are created equal, and Japanese cheesecake chain LeTao’s creations – which are made in Hokkaido and air-flown to Singapore, by the way – prove it.
The secret to the cheesecake’s dreamy, creamy texture that’s light and airy? Unbaked cheesecake layered over denser baked cheesecake. We especially love the Double Fromage cheesecake that’s made from premium Italian mascarpone cheese and topped off with powdery Parmesan cheese – this signature flavour just melts like snow in your mouth.
Prices start from S$29.90 for a Double Fromage cake, and you may place your orders online.

Standing out from the crowd of boldly torched crusts is Esquina’s take on this crowd-favourite.
The top is delicately burnished to perfection and is gently pleasing to the eye. It passes the taste test with flying colours too, and trust us when we say you’ll be completely taken by the smooth molten centre made from three Spanish cheeses that taste like heaven. Made in an authentic Spanish kitchen to boot, you’ll not get any closer to the Basque country than with a slice of cheesecake from Esquina.
Prices start at S$22 for a box of two mini cheesecakes, S$46 for a medium cheesecake, and S$108 for a large cheesecake. You may order online on the website.
Address: 16 Jiak Chuan Road, Singapore 089267

The Basque burnt cheesecake coming out from the humble kitchen of small-plates eatery Lolla’s is quite unabashedly delicious in its simplicity and it certainly packs a visual punch with its boldly burnt crown.
There’re no fancy flavours or trendy toppings on this one, though. It’s simply made of just four types of Spanish cheese including idiazábal, a pressed cheese with a distinctive smoky flavour from the Basque country that originally gave these little cakes of gooey goodness their name. The flavour of this cheesecake leans towards sweet but it’s overall well-balanced thanks to the robust mixture of cheeses.
It only made its appearance on the restaurant’s takeaway menu during last year’s Circuit Breaker, and we’re so thankful that it’s here to stay!
The Burnt Basque Cheesecake is priced at S$70, and you may place your orders online.
Address: 22 Ann Siang Road, Singapore 069702
Opening hours: 12pm – 2.30pm & 6pm – 11pm (Mon to Sat) | 11.30am – 3pm & 6pm – 10.30pm (Sun)
17. The Whisking Well
The home baking craze that gripped the nation during last year’s Circuit Breaker gave rise to a few things, one of which was a fever-pitch love for Basque burnt cheesecake. And that’s exactly what gave life to artisanal bakery The Whisking Well, run by baker duo Francesco and Jaz-ley, who experimented relentlessly until they perfected their version of burnt cheesecake.
Today, the store churns out the cheesecake that started it all, and more – expect to dig into a slice that’s tantalisingly creamy and rich whilst remaining light enough to leave you wanting for more. Do also try the refreshing Mixed Berry Jam Drop Burnt Cheesecake or the decadent Mao Shan Wang durian version to tickle your taste buds.
The cheesecakes are priced between S$38 to S$48, depending on the flavour. You can place your orders on the website, deliveries are made on Wednesdays through Sundays.
