Opening their doors in August 2015, Karafuru Desserts is among the most trendy new dessert cafes in Singapore at the moment, for 2015. Karafuru Desserts specialises in French style desserts, namely parfaits and eclairs, made with Japanese ingredients and flavours.

Service at Karafuru Desserts is completely self-service, with ordering, payment, and collection done over the counter. At least staff are friendly and engaging, they're knowledgable enough to accurately describe the desserts available, and make astute recommendations. Beyond this, there's very little else that's memorable about the service.
Food at Karafuru Desserts is all about desserts, either parfaits or eclairs. These French style desserts are made with Japanese ingredients, creative and beautifully designed, very photogenic. But I tend to find it only decent in taste, not terrible, but not memorable either. Portions are designed for individuals, but can also be shared. Prices are rather high for these desserts, budget about SGD $6 per eclair, and about SGD $15 per parfait.
The Yoghurt Parfait Hanami (SGD $15) features a surprsingly soft and moist sakura / cherry blossom souffle, a millky smooth vanilla pudding on a sweet crisp wafer, tart and sharp red fruit coulis (strawberry, raspberry), a cereal crunch, sakura / cherry blossom syrup, sliced strawberry and raspberry, a hanami dango / sweet glutinous rice dumpling balls with 3 flavours (plain, strawberry, green tea), and a sakura / cherry blossom flavoured langue de chat / cat tongue cookie. Despite the sakura / cherry blossom syrup having a medicinal taste, the overall dessert was above average.
