We made our way down to Carpenter and Cook on Sunday morning for some light bites. It’s just a 5-minute drive from our place and it’s such a whimsical little cafe!
I love the retro lights and tiles, the mismatched furniture, the bunting and all the quirky vintage knick-knacks. Carpenter and Cook is also a home store and the furniture and decor items are for sale.
We sat at a table with creaky spin-out chairs near the entrance and had a great view of all the freshly-baked yummy food on the counter.
We tried a few items and they were all pretty decent. I really like the tarts, especially the lemon cream tart. Carpenter and Cook makes a good crust!
I saw a familiar face behind the counter while we were there and although we were only in the same school in Primary 1 and 2, I remembered her name! Eunice is one of the three ladies behind Carpenter and Cook.
While it is a bit pricey, I do like some of their items very much and the proximity is a definite bonus. It gets very crowded on weekends though so I’ll probably keep my visits to the weekdays.
Carpenter and Cook is at 19 Lorong Kilat, #01-06, Singapore 598120. Opening hours: Tue-Fri, 12-10pm; Sat 10am-10pm & Sun 10am-7pm.
