About The Pine Garden

With more than 32 years of history, The Pine Garden has evolved from a heartland-boutique bakery into a household name that spans generations. Boasting traditional freshly-baked goods alongside modern creations, The Pine Garden has managed to garner a strong local following, placing much emphasis on connecting with its community.

However, not all was rosy for The Pine Garden; in its 20th year of business, they were faced with the possibility of closing down their business, due to fierce competition from new bakery chains in shopping malls. The business was saved by Mr Wei Chan, who simply could not bear for his family business to shut down.  Being the former Regional Marketing Manager of a US-based MNC, Mr Wei Chan used his expertise to transform the business. Since then, The Pine Garden has opened two outlets at Ang Mo Kio, as well as four kiosks at Compass One, Century Square, Northpoint Shopping Centre and AMK Hub.

Striving to put forth an authentic Singaporean heritage, on top of service excellence and personalisation, The Pine Garden offers a wide range of products at extremely affordable prices!

 

Product Selection

The Pine Garden offers a few categories of cakes, such as the Exquisite Cakes, Special Creations, Premium Creations and General Cakes.

The decadent Cat Mountain King Durian king consists of multiple layers of CMK durian pulp, together with fresh cream and vanilla sponge.

Indulge in the luxury Kyoho Grapes and White Chocolate cake, which has little Kyoho Grape gummy bits embedded in a light white chocolate cream, sandwiched between Kyoho Grape cake. The Avocado Gula Melaka MilkSh- cake is a sure crowd pleaser, as it’s modelled after the flavours of the greatly-loved avocado milkshake.
