Description: The Fabulous Baker Boy is thrilled to introduce his first ever bakery cafe situated along River Valley Road. It's perched on a grassy knoll at the foot of Fort Canning Park in the canteen of the former River Valley Swimming Complex. Central yet conveniently tucked away, The Fabulous Baker Boy cafe will be a wonderful new way to experience food, art and nature right in the heart of busy Singapore! ​ Serving signature dishes and cakes like Ju's Prawn Pappardelle, Tuna Melt, Fried Chicken & Waffle, Towkay Ng's Egg Benedict , Red Velvet, Salted Caramel, Valrhona Chocolate cakes and many more.

... but never the actual place. so, if they'd be interested in being visited, they should make themselves visible! but the park around the not existing place is quite worth a visit!

Had an awesome brunch there a few months back, great food, good service and on just a stone throw away from the tourist trap of Clarke Quay.

Can't wait for the dinner menu starting soon!!!!

Keep it up Fabulous Baker Boy!!!

We have heard of this place and finally checked it out with my parents today who are visiting Singapore. And OMG, why have we not been here before. The food was scrummy, the staff efficient and could not have been more helpful and the location easy to get too.

Gordon Ramsey would approve of the menu - simply, yet effective. The food was fresh and cooked to order - piping hot on arrival. I had the chicken pot pie that was delicious - the texture of everything from the al dente carrots, tender potatoes and the tender chicken in a creamy sauce with flakey pastry perfect. The dressing on the salad a cheeky little flavor. And the garlic fries were wonderful - fresh oil that made the crisp and light!

For desert if was the chocolate ganache tart with salted caramel and peanuts. Go just for this if nothing else!The best desert I have had in Singapore - and I have had a few. And if you leave it to warm on the plate before eating, the texture and combination of it all melting together is simply sublime.

The coffee is good too!

Thank you for a wonderful meal FBB Team! See you again soon!

I was surprised to see this cafe full of lunch customers, tucked away as it is, off the street at the foothill of Fort Canning Park and across a busy street from bustling Clark Quay. Yeah Juwanda for making a menu worth a little extra effort in getting there! Generous portions, fresh, homemade goodness in every bite! From the scrumptious soup, and turkey sandwich, and topped off with a lemon cake. Being there with my friend and her small baby, I wandered a bit on the patio to keep the baby quiet, and saw the rest of the customers: All HAPPILY enjoying the good food and great atmosphere. It's a yummy, joyful place! Make reservations if you're going on the weekend!

I am not sure what is all this hype about the 'cosy' (read small) eatery located at Foothills. We visited this place this evening and ordered 5 slices of cakes - all ordinary-tasting yet overpriced. It seems that the boss/workers know some of the more 'prominent customers'; they were asking them to support Fabulous Boy and reciprocating them with discounts and drinks, while blatantly ignoring other walk-in customers. Nothing wrong with that - it occurs to us that the eatery could have bought its way to fame.

On the whole, the food was so-so, slightly overpriced, extremely hot environment (with only 1 table located indoors) and poor service. Would only recommend if you are within close proximity and have a sudden craving for sweets.
