Located in the quaint Tiong Bahru estate, our flagship store is where you’ll find our largest selection of bakes, a daily brunch menu, as well as the full range of our grocer brand, Plain Vanilla Foods, and an ever-changing selection of homeware under our sister brand, Plain Vanilla Home. It is also home to our one and only ice cream cart from which we serve up six flavours daily.
Housed in an old shophouse repurposed to suit the needs of a bakery cum cafe cum retail store, we’ve drawn natural light into the space by opening a skylight and turning the space into a bright and open sanctuary for alone time, catch ups or family gatherings. Our Tiong Bahru store is also complete with an indoor room suited for quiet working lunches and afternoons, a more casual, covered outdoor play area and an al fresco seating area for dry, breezy days. Each of these spaces play host at some point in the year to our regular weekend events (find out more here).
Drawing inspiration from the surrounding neighbourhood, as well as our own nostalgia for times gone by, you can easily spot us by looking out for the vintage cycles and outdoor garden that line the front of our store.
Nestled in a historic building that bears witness to our colonial past, Plain Vanilla Cluny Court was designed to be in keeping with the iconic architecture of the building that houses it and its proximity to the Singapore Botanic Gardens. Its timber facade and terracotta tiles are reminiscent of the 19th-century iconic black and white houses in the area. On entering the store, one feels as if they have entered a forest clearing – a fitting sentiment given that many of our visitors may have just left the gates of a tropical garden.
Plain Vanilla Cluny Court serves up our freshly baked creations alongside hand-brewed coffee from the Brew Bar making it the perfect spot to unwind after a stroll in the Botanic Gardens, or for an intimate catch up with a friend. You’ll also find a selection of products from our grocer brand, Plain Vanilla Foods, available here.
A pocket of quietness amidst the busy-ness of Orchard Road, our ION Orchard Store is inspired by the calmness of a forest, with curvaceous tables and benches that take reference from water puddles on a forest floor.
Here, you’ll find our signature cupcakes and bakes, a selection of fresh sandwiches and salads from the deli, and aromatic organic coffee and tea. A select range of items from sister homeware brand, Plain Vanilla Home, and grocer label, Plain Vanilla Foods, can also be found here.
Housed within the flagship store of Singapore fashion brand, IN GOOD COMPANY, Plain Vanilla ION Orchard is an unexpected oasis of calm along the busiest shopping strip in the city.
