Bugis is home to a variety of options offering sweet treats ranging from traditional favourites at HoneyMoon Dessert to Belle-Ville’s fluffy pancakes — so much to eat, so little time! Now, imagine you’re out with a group of friends who all have different dessert preferences (yep, it’s one of those days). Presenting to you Smile Dessert, a three-storey dessert house that sweet dreams are made of. 


All dressed in shades of pink, the building’s hot pink exterior is quite a striking sight. Venturing inside will see lighter shades greeting you but once you head up to the second and third floors, it’s a good time to whip out your cameras.


Level two brings about fun, tropical vibes with a photo corner that has Minnie Mouse sitting in a pink trolley and a wall of iridescent tumblers. 


And of course, who can miss the gigantic ball pit that practically takes up the whole room? There’s even a cuddly Pink Panther plushie! 


The third floor is a lot more airy, with the decor taking on a more whimsical feel. I’m talking about yes, the baby-pink Christmas tree, and the small boudoir-like section that has a canopy draped over a pastel sofa, befitting a princess methinks.


There’s quite the extensive menu here with varied flavours all around, as well as many beverage options such as fruit smoothies and bubble tea. We got Asian desserts such as Sesame Paste ($5.90), Mango Sago with Pomelo/Durian ($5.90) and Korean bingsu. For those who prefer Western-style desserts, choose from souffle pancakes, lava cakes or their pastries.

A few interesting options that caught my eye were the Seaweed Floss Souffle ($12.90) and Multi Layer Purple Sweet Potato Cake ($6.90). Sadly, they were still in their soft launch stage when I made my visit so a lot of things weren’t available then. 


Since they only had traditional desserts on my day of visit, I opted for the Mango Ice with Rice Ball ($6.90)  — the perfect option to combat the blistering heat that day.


The fresh mango cubes were on the tart side which made for a good match with the sweet puree. Be sure to eat the mango ice-cream in the centre fast because it melts super-duper fast. 


I love rice ball desserts and while these didn’t exactly disappoint me, I would have preferred them to have a softer and chewier texture. 


Even if you’re not sweet-toothed, stopping by for the drinks here is highly recommended! I especially liked the Yogurt & Strawberry Fruit Tea ($7.90) because it was super light and refreshing. It’s also cute that it was served in a mini jug and was quite a lot, quantity-wise. 


The Dragonfruit & Mango Yogurt Shake ($7.90) was part of the smoothie series so the consistency was a lot thicker. I couldn’t really get a lot of the dragonfruit flavours after it got mixed and ended up tasting more mango than anything else. But since I like mango, this was still a sweet and yummy option. Makes for aesthetically-pleasing photos too! In fact, practically everything in Smile Dessert is Instagrammable. 


While their current opening hours are from 11am-3am, Smile Dessert has future plans to shift into becoming a 24-hour dessert place, so you can get your dessert fix all day, every day, any time! Hooray!
