Food review: Carpenter and Cooks Cafe

On May 24, 2013 by Michelle

Hi all!


I have been meaning to try Carpenter and Cook for the longest time since this quaint little cafe is so near my house! With the sudden sprout of indie cafes everywhere, Carpenter and Cook is another cafe in Singapore that serves small snacks, sweets and drinks.

When you step into the cafe, you are first greeted with a display of all the food and sweets behind the glass display. The staff behind the counter will then take in your order and you will pay on the spot. Because the place is quite small, not many tables are able to be fitted into the area. It is advised to find a seat before ordering the food.

Everything in this cafe is decorated in vintage. Even their coffee maker seems to be vintage!

Being a crazy fan of all things vintage (I collect vintage makeup compacts!), I eagerly snapping pictures away and was so mesmerized with every little detail in this cafe. The owner definitely spent a lot of effort into this little cafe. Hats off!

These are the cute vintage utensils at the side of my table. This cafe also sell vintage decoration and home furnitures.

Because I went to this cafe during the Halloween season last year (yes, I know the pictures were taken eons ago), spooky little decorations are spotted in the cafe.

If you are a vintage collector, like I am, this place is a gem. See that cute little caboodle behind the frames? I want that!

Now onto the food!

They have brown sugar and white sugar for each table. Sometimes I don’t dare to use these sugar because they are not covered. What if someone sneezed and all the germs fall into the sugar ya?

Savoury Brioche – Meat ($6.50)

This is like a mini pizza with mushroom and bacon. Brioche are high in egg and butter, which is what this savoury brioche taste like. However, unlike the French brioche, it does not have a dark and golden crust. A little too pale for my liking if I have to say so.

Savoury Brioche – Veg ($6.50)

The vegetable brioche however seem to please my tastebud better than the meat brioche. Perhaps because I have a liking towards olives and sun-dried tomatoes more.

Cherry Tomatoes & Spinach Quiche ($7)


Hot Chocolate ($5.20)

Lemon Drizzle Loaf ($5.00)

Chamomile ($4.50)

lemon curd tart ($6.20)

carrot cake ($7)

passionfruit meringue tart ($6.20)

retail goodies – home made jams, granola, biscuits and marshmallows
