Pasir Panjang is a unique road in Singapore. Besides having many churches scattered amongst small condos, a Salvation Army, a children’s home, a hawker centre, budget hotels, Haw Par Villa, business areas such as Mapletree Business City and Science Park II, Pasir Panjang also has various eateries and food shops that are patronised by residents, weekend churchgoers, NUS students, weekday working crowd, medical tourists and more.
It was an interesting surprise to note that in one of the newest condos in Pasir Panjang, a retail bakery opened a few weeks ago.
Hidden inside a Pasir Panjang Condo
Fredeli is located in Whitehaven condo, next to Shell petrol station near Science Park II.
The unit Fredeli occupies is right in front of the roundabout at the condo entrance and you don’t need a pass to enter the retail bakery as it is in front of the security guardhouse.
This unit was initially built for a convenience store, but with the nearby Shell station already having a convenience store, I think having a bakery is a better option.
Fredeli sells assorted cakes, pastries, pies, quiche, buns, veggie pizza, scones, tarts, croissants, hot drinks and chilled drinks.
The selection is quite interesting: pandan avocado chiffon cake, gula melaka chiffon cake, spring onion scones, chia seed pound cake amongst the wide variety of offerings.
If you’re looking for something special to eat or buy as a gift for a gathering, Fredeli is a good place to drop by.
Fredeli’s offerings are baked elsewhere and transported to the Whitehaven outlet as the outlet is not equipped for baking.
You can enjoy a standing meal (no chairs, but there are two standing bartops) of a coffee or tea or even juice to pair with your pastry, while watching the traffic go by.
Fredeli is near the Shell station bus stop, which is like 3 bus stops away or a 10 minute walk from Haw Par Villa MRT station.
The thing is I’m not sure if there’s space to park as the roundabout is not very big, but you can always pump petrol at Shell and pop by, or try your luck at the private housing opposite.
