Went to the soft launch of Carpenter & Cook, a cafe/ furniture shop started by Shen, Eunice and Phoebe. I happen to know Shen and Phoebe through my bro during my 2.5 mth stay in London in 2009.
Check out the blast from the past! Doesn’t the above look like a living room from the 70’s or 60’s? So retro!! That big clock is from London btw.
They’ve got lovely muffins that Shen bakes and they are focusing mainly on desserts and cakes BUT if you have a savoury craving, they have quiches too! Below is Phoebs showing off the mushroom bacon quiche and (more importantly to her) the parrot on her apron. Haha!
Above is a half eaten passion fruit meringue tart that is simply divine. You MUST try this tart. It’s not too sweet, not too tart (as in sour) but makes a nice end to any meal.
I love love love the Singer sewing machine legs to the sink (as well as to some of their tables). It’s soo innovative and cool. I want one!!
Most of the furniture is bought in London and Phoebe is the one who re-upholstered the chairs there. Shen took up a baking course at Le Cordon Bleu and she’s the baker of all those goodies you saw above. They even have homemade jams, marshmallows and biscuits.
For that cool Britiania-ish retro chic, I highly recommend going down and just chillax.
Note: They only do private parties on weekdays.
