carpenter & cook: bakery meets vintage

After hearing about this cafe from lady iron chef’s blog, I was so excited to check out Carpenter & Cook here in Singapore. I loved all the mismatched vintage furniture including chairs with crosses carved out on the back because they must have been from a church. Our table had this antique foot pedal thing on the bottom because it must have been a sewing table. All around the cafe we saw vintage pieces like type writers, scales, mirrors, clocks and more that are on sale and add to the decor. The inside of the cafe was  a bit smaller than I expected. It probably would not be a good place to go if you have a really big group of people.

All the food is baked at the cafe. They had a good variety of baked goods from quiches, breads, passion fruit tartes, croissants, scones, muffins and more. My blueberry crumb muffin was definitely the best muffin I’ve had in Singapore so far. The chocolate caramel sea salt tart was my FAVORITE! I loved the sweet and savory taste of it. It melted in my mouth. The passion fruit tart had a unique and sweet taste to it. They also sold a variety of homemade jams and biscuits  as well. I would definitely come back here again!
