Seasoned Johor Bahru visitors would know of Lavender Bakery, the popular Malaysian chain offering atas but wallet-friendly European-style bread and pastries. In 2019, it opened its first Singapore outlet at Jewel Changi Airport. Fast forward two years, and the chain is opening its second branch, this time at Ion Orchard.
The mall’s basement is also home to a range of new eateries including Five Guys’ upcoming third outlet and new hawker enclave Hawkers’ Street.
Lavender Bakery’s assistant general manager Vera Tam (whose family founded the brand) confirms with 8days.sg that the upcoming outlet will be opening “early to mid-October”, and that it will be a “takeaway bakery” concept.
