On’Lee Artisan Bakery is a relatively new halal-certifed bakery located in Woodlands MRT station on the Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL) near exit 7.
With its unassuming set-up and minimal decor, the lesser-known spot might be easily dismissed as the stereotypical (often chain) bakery seen in other MRT stations.
However, a closer look will reveal its offerings are more reminiscent of cafe-standard baked goods, albeit at far more affordable prices.
Cream croissants and breads under S$4
Perhaps the most distinct items that On’Lee Artisan Bakery sells are its selection of cream croissants.
Flavours range from the Korean-inspired Garlic Cream Cheese Croissant (S$2.80) overloaded with savoury, chopped garlic to its best-selling Japanese White Sauce Ham & Cheese Croissant (S$4).
There’s even Pistachio Croissant (S$4) with a vibrant green piped crust that would make other MRT stations err…green with envy.
If you prefer more classic options, items like Pain Au Raisin (S$3), Bread & Butter Pudding (S$2.50) and Mini Scones ($4.50 for 4) might still cost less than your daily commute.
Cream puffs and sourdough under S$6
Lovers of cream puffs have to try the bakery’s Assorted Puffs, available at $5.80 for four pieces. This works out to just under S$1.50 per puff—cheaper than your MRT fare from Woodlands to Orchard.
Customers can mix and match from three flavours: Original, Matcha, and Chocolate.
If you’re a fan of bread, On’Lee Artisan Bakery also offers a varied spread of freshly baked bread to choose from, priced from $5.80 for a loaf of sourdough or Walnut Raisin Bread.
Whether you’re on the way to school/office or back home, a stop at On’Lee Artisan Bakery would be perfect to grab atas breads and pastries without burning a hole in your wallet.
