Our Story

Who We Are

Cedele (say “suh-deli”; the "Ce" is short for the founders' initial) is an artisanal food and beverage chain of bakeries, quick service cafés, fast casual dining concepts and full service restaurants islandwide offering a wide selection of soulful breads, cakes, sandwiches, soups, salads, and more. 

Founded in 1997 with a passion for cooking and baking using only fresh and natural ingredients, Cedele was also the first in Singapore to introduce superfoods into your everyday meals, and is also a local favourite choice for festive seasonal food that's packed with the goodness of bold and authentic flavours! In the early days of incorporating Cedele, the brand found itself scattered with bakeries throughout the various Singaporean neighbourhood offering run-of-the-mill items, and it took the founders’ vision to see the potential of making bread a lifestyle concept, presenting unique selections and sleek outlet stores that revolutionised the food and beverage industry to what it is today. 

Cedele's emphasis on the care they put into their menu and the overall wellbeing of their customers has led them to design their menus to be inclusive and offering options to cater to different dietary needs. 

What We Do

At the heart of Cedele, we remained rooted in the same belief we were founded upon: strive to uphold the ethos “Eat Well • Be Well”. We believe that besides physical nourishment, the food you eat also affects your whole well-being.

To serve food that is honest and wholesome, we take extra care to select the freshest natural ingredients to craft our menu, giving you peace of mind as you dine.

Our baked goods are sweetened with organic unrefined sugar. We do not use artificially-processed ingredients such as food colouring, improvers or premixes. We also thicken our soups naturally with vegetables.

Be spoilt for choice as our range of bread, cakes, sandwiches, salads and soups can satisfy even the most picky eaters.

What We Believe

As a pioneer of healthy food options in Singapore, our underlying guiding principle is to ensure that only the most honest, time-tested methods of cooking are used to make delicious food that also nourishes you, so that you can eat well, and be well. Cedele also subscribes to a 5,000 year old system of natural healing through Ayurveda (Ayur = life, Veda = science or knowledge); our basis for our holistic vision can be tasted by how each food created reminds us that food is thy medicine and your health is a balance between the environment, body, mind, and spirit through positive, conscious eating. We constantly aim to employ the six tastes of sour, sweet, salty, pungent, bitter and astringent (tannin) in our menu. This, in conjunction with the removal of damaging additives, are the foundations of health and taste, a testament that has stayed true for nearly a quarter of a century at Cedele.

Where To Next?

“I hope that Cedele will become synonymous with eating healthier and taking care of oneself. For 25 years I have promised myself that what we serve must be as good as how I would feed my own family and friends. We want to continue upholding that in the future, to be cooking and respecting food as it should be enjoyed and eaten. To us, food is passion; food is love.”
