Museum of Ice Cream has officially unveiled Singapore’s first-ever ‘Sweet Spots Guide’, featuring an exquisite selection of 50 must-try Singaporean desserts. From molecular gastronomy to traditional delights, this guide which is supported by Singapore Tourism Board (STB) is the perfect way to explore the city’s diverse range of desserts.
The inaugural selection of local culinary talent was based on over 500 nominations from the public, evaluated by local culinary scene experts, based on taste, presentation, repeat visit factor, and value for money.
Based on these criteria, each establishment was awarded one to three spoons in ascending order of rating, which was decided by anonymous judges.

Among the 50 establishments in the Sweet Spots Guide, there are:
- 10 establishments with three SPOONS
- 15 establishments with two SPOONS
- 25 establishments with one SPOON
Amongst the ten 3 SPOONS awardees, Le Matin Patisserie has created waves in the local dessert scene since opening at ION Orchard in February 2023 with Chef Al-Matin’s signature French delights.
