Vintage home store and café Carpenter and Cook opened on Singapore’s Lorong Kilat on June 16. The homey spot sells pre-21st century furniture and rustic home-baked goods.
The place is a venture by three ladies: Cordon Bleu-trained chef, Sim Li-Shenn, vintage buyer, Phoebe Teo and operations manager, Eunice Yeo. Their retro furniture is handpicked and mostly sourced from the United Kingdom.
Baked goods are made from scratch on-premises and include items like lemon drizzle cake ($5) as well as scones with butter and homemade jam ($4). For a more substantial bite, try their quiche ($7) or sandwiches ($9). Available for retail sale are preservative-free packaged goods such as jams ($12.50) and marshmallows ($6).
