Hidden bakery at Woodlands MRT Station on Thomson-East Coast Line sells affordable artisanal pastries like pistachio croissants & matcha cream puffs

Cheaper than going to cafe in town.

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: OriginalMatcha, and Chocolate.
