An All-You-Can-Eat Dessert Buffet – It Exists, In Singapore!

An All-You-Can-Eat Dessert Buffet – It Exists, In Singapore!

50 cool flavors of ice cream, 40 exciting toppings, chocolate fondue fountains and an assortment of delicious pastries and cakes. Does that sound like your idea of heaven?

But this place is no dream. This exclusive heaven actually exists at Swensen’s at ION Orchard located on the famous Orchard Road in Singapore. We first learned about Swensen’s after reading about it on Living the Dream and knew that we couldn’t miss out on eating here.

Swensen's Menu

Kieron was determined to taste every flavor of ice cream and headed straight for the ice cream buffet, loading up with a plate with 8 different flavors mixing traditional favorites such as chocolate and thin mint with the unique tastes of apple crumble and milo.

Ice Cream... So Much Ice Cream!

Meanwhile, Amy was around the side of the buffet indulging in chocolate cake and a several mini-chocolate bars. Basically anything chocolatey she could get her hands on!


Within minutes, Kieron was onto his second plate of ice cream but was showing signs of slowing down. Shouldn’t have opted for those full scoops! We eventually lost count of how many flavors he had tried but it definitely wouldn’t have been more than half of them.

Amy, who had paced herself a lot better, was still enjoying a mixture of chocolate delights, locating fruit and marshallows for dipping in two different chocolate fondue fountains. If she had her way, she would dip everything in chocolate!

Chocolate Fountains

Swensen’s also serve hot food but we’ll be honest – the food is pretty terrible. So skip the main meal and go straight for the dessert bar!

You might not get your money’s worth but it’s one hell of a fun meal, particularly if you love your ice cream and chocolate as much as the two of us!

    The Swensens I’m familiar with in Thailand have decent ice cream. I did not know they had all-u-can-eat dessert restaurants though.
    Like I posted on your Facebook, Tokyo has several dessert buffet places but I could never imagine myself going to one and getting what I’m paying for. You’re right; after a few plates of desserts, you’d be too stuffed to want more. Although, I’d like to challenge myself and see how many white chocolate covered strawberries I could eat.

      There are a few Swensen’s in Singapore but this is the only one that serves an all-you-can-eat dessert buffet though. A challenge is always good, how many strawberries do you think you could knock over?

    Awesome post. Glad I could help you discover something amazing in Singapore :). The dessert buffet was one of the coolest things I ever heard of. I also heard about the all you can eat chocolate buffet at the marinas casino but that is another story. I agree that it is definitely expensive, but it is heaven. How can you put a price on that?

    Angie and I took videos of us challenging each other to an eating showdown. Durian ice cream stopped us both. Did they have it when you went? The most potent extract of durian known to man is the main ingredient… at least I think. And I tried other durian dishes without problem.

      Thanks again Jeremy, it was a fun afternoon at Swensen’s! An all-you-can-eat chocolate buffet? Wow.

      A video would’ve been cool – Don’t Ever Look Back vs. Food – but we failed. No I never got around to the durian ice cream, started on the left side of the ice cream buffet and didn’t even make it halfway across. Sounds like that was a smart decision though, the durian flavor may have put me over the edge when already feeling sick.

    I love Swensens! I haven’t been back there for awhile but they have amazing desserts and pretty good savoury food too. I’m not a fan of durian though so next time I’m in Singapore, I’ll try everything but that! 😉

      Still many desserts to be had without having the durian ice cream!

    I’m a huge fan of Swensens – it’s great in Thailand because they give you as much free water as you can drink, which is lovely when the heat is getting the best of you – but I never knew they did dessert buffet! Jealous.

      We’ve never tried Swensen’s in Thailand but I’d imagine they’d all have a great selection of desserts. This one was the only dessert buffet in Singapore so it’s a rare find!

    This is an awesome post. I think I’d be in heaven in such a place, only until the ice cream headache kicks in. Then I think I’d be in hell. That said though, I have to go to this place when I finally make it to Singapore. The prices for the all you can eat desert a la carte are quite reasonable when you convert them into aussie dollars.

      Yeah you definitely get carried away before you get in there haha… the goal of consuming 50 scoops of ice cream was far from realistic haha. It’s not a bad price and there are some other VERY tempting desserts on the menu if you want to spend a little less.

    O M G ! Why didn’t we know about thing when we were there? I bet Gerard did and kept it from me. Lol. I’d probably never leave the fondue fountain!

      Haha it’s tucked away within ION Orchard and quite difficult to find even if you’re specifically looking for it. You sound just like Amy though! Haha she was looking for more things she could dip into the choc fountain.

    My goodness! That will just make my day… it might be too dangerous for me though, I think I won’t be able to stop! 🙂
    Need to keep it in mind if we stop by that area 😉

    This is awesome. I need to experience this at least once in my life! I might leave on the ultimate sugar high.

    This place sounds AMAZING! My mouth is watering just looking at your pictures! I get a bit overwhelmed going to an ice cream shop with 10 flavors though, so I’m not sure how I would handle the disappointment of not getting to try them all!

      It was amazing. Fortunately less overwhelming than an ice-cream shop because you can order as many scoops as you like and aren’t restricted to just one (a much tougher decision!).

  10. Posted October 3, 2012 at 5:21 pm | Permalink

    That sounds delicious! Even if you didn’t get your money’s worth, it sounds like you tried more than you would have if it weren’t all-you-can-eat. 🙂

    The ice cream choices sound yummy. 🙂

    Wow that sounds awesome! I can’t believe I missed that when I was in Singapore!!! Just another reason to return I guess…
