Sugar Lips – Dessert Colour Explosion @ Orchard Gateway

Sugar Lips - Entrance

The storefront of Sugar Lips!

Sugar Lips is a new dessert cafe that just opened at Orchard Gateway! The concept here is an incredible sugar and candy colour explosion, with bright multi-coloured paint all over the cafe. Their desserts are bright and colourful as well, perfect for that Instagram photo.

When we first saw some of the cafe photographs, we were a bit taken aback by the smorgasbord of colours flowing down the walls – but when we were there we must say that the interior provides a very nice place to chill out! Each seating table is partitioned with a castle-like wall, and there is ample privacy for a long chit-chat session. It is a great place for gatherings and dates.

Service and Ordering

This is another of those ‘faster visit before the crowd comes’ cafes. You won’t have any problems finding a table here for now, and the service is great as well. Their menu is simple and for now you won’t go wrong with getting their Chocolate Seduction Truffle Cake, Rainbow Fantasy Cake and Red Velvet Fluffy Waffle.

They have a standard pricing structure for their cakes and waffles, with their standard size at S$12.90 (1 dessert + 1 topping), medium S$14.90 (1 dessert + 2 toppings) and large S$16.90 (1 dessert + 3 toppings). They have a very large selection of toppings to choose from!

We really like the chocolate here at Sugar Lips. On our visit there, we managed to have a chat with Kaley, the really pretty lady who runs the place, and Travis, their dessert artist. Starting out in the F&B industry is really challenging, and the folks at Sugar Lips had to spend many hours perfecting their dessert recipes, sometimes trying no less than 50 versions of a recipe. The cakes here are all custom recipes, and you won’t get them anywhere else.

Sugar Lips – Rainbow Fantasy Cake

This has got to be one of the most beautiful cakes that you will ever see. Its really great for Instagram! The bright multi-coloured layers are vibrant and appetising. The thin layers of cream go well with the soft and fluffy coloured sections. We particularly enjoyed the Monster Chocolate Gelato that came with the cake! We rate the rainbow cake 3.8/5, and the chocolate gelato gets 4.1/5.

Chocolate Seduction Truffle Cake

This is where the trial and error efforts of the Sugar Lips team really show. The chocolate kick was unmistakably overwhelming and the smooth texture of the cake was really nice. This dessert came with the Creamy Thai Milk Tea Gelato, and it was one of the best milk tea gelatos that we have tasted. The milk tea fragrance was fantastic and if you like Thai milk tea, you will enjoy this gelato. We rate the chocolate cake 4/5 and the milk tea gelato 4/5 as well!

Final Thoughts

For all the food Instagrammers and dessert fans out there, Sugar Lips is a must try! The gorgeous dessert designs are unique in Singapore, and they make for very good photographs.  The cakes and gelatos are pretty good as well, and this is a fantastic chill out place for gatherings. While we have some reservations about the interior paint design (we’re not too sure what the artist was thinking here…), we love the privacy partitions and ambience of the cafe.
