Best Scones in Singapore
Gourmet Grocery - OurChoice - Proper English scones and Clotted Cream
As one of our favourite grocery stores in Singapore, Gourmet Grocery - OurChoice stocks the best epicurean foods for your home, scones included!
Gourmet Grocery’s English Scones are the best way to indulge in a high tea without leaving the comfort of your own home. Often touted as the best five-star hotel quality scones in Singapore, these are proper English scones. This means, not only are they crumbly in texture, but they also break apart easily - the perfect scone should break apart with a simple twist!
Easy to re-heat, just warm up in an oven for 5 minutes until warm or cut scones in half to heat in a pan over a fire.
And of course, there’s no scone without clotted cream! Gourmet Grocery pride itself on selling clotted cream for its English scones. Not whipped cream, and nor is it double cream, Rodda's Cornish Clotted Cream is the most luxurious touch of indulgence to scones, desserts and even savoury dishes.
Planning a tea party at home? Better still make it a Cream Tea soiree! Cream Tea is a much treasured British tradition comprising of scones, clotted cream and jam along with a cup of tea. The easiest(and most delicious) way to enjoy it in Singapore is through the Our Choice Cream Tea Set for 2, 4 or six. The sets come with English Scones, Rodda’s Cornish Clotted Cream, Tiptree jams, and Taylors of Harrogate tea bags. Don’t forget to enjoy it the Cornish way - jam and then cream on top of your scone!
Fans of Cream Tea can also look forward to Gourmet Crocery’s annual Cream Tea day that takes place in June every year with tons of fanfare including competitions, giveaways and special promotions.
With *free next-day delivery for all orders, this is the most convenient way to satiate any scone cravings in Singapore! Options for home party and office event catering also available.
*Next-day delivery is offered every day except Sundays and Public Holidays for all orders confirmed before 11:59 PM.

Cheryl Scones - Scone variety galore (plant-based and low-sugar scones)
With over 20 flavours on their extensive menu, Cheryl Scones remind us that scones don’t necessarily have to be plain and boring and that they certainly don’t need to be eaten with only clotted cream and jam.

Yes, you heard us right, there is a mojito-flavoured scone on the menu that is inspired by the summer cocktail.
