ooh gosh i’ve been procrastinating doing up these posts for the longest time! >.< but anyway, i've long heard of carpenter and cook about how lovely its baked goodies are, and it definitely lived up to expectations! :) all homemade, you can really feel the amount of love and joy that goes into making these treats ^^ look at how pretty they are!!!
i have to say that i felt a slight tinge of disappointment when i first stepped into this place because it didnt look as pretty as i’d imagined, but their food display…was mind-blowing :D gosh, having to decide on all those lovely pastries, tarts and cakes on display was so difficult! :P my pictures dont do justice to them, really. because it was kinda dark there and i was using my phone camera, so the pictures were a bit blah.
first up was the queen of hearts tart ($6.20). a luscious almond cream tart with a deliciously crisp buttery crust with lovely berries inside! they use the freshest seasonal fruits available, and the berries added such a delicious zesty flavour to it!
the pear almond eat me cake ($5) was a soft buttery pound cake filled with pears and frangipani :) loved how fluffy it was!
this was a really yummy sandwich but i can’t remember what it was called! :( the bun was super duper fluffy! and slightly sweet as well, which went perfectly with the ham and cheese inside ^^
we tried two quiches! :) have i mentioned how i love pies/tarts because of their crust? :D it’s so yummy and flaky and crispy! yummmz :D they’re $7 each. this was the peperoni quiche if i remember properly. with sundried tomatoes in it. surprisingly actually preferred the spinach quiche (below)!
it was sooo delicious and eggy! haha. and i liked how the taste of the spinach didnt take centrestage, but rather complemented the other ingredients rather well.
definitely would like to go back here again! ^^
