When I saw photos of Carpenter and Cook online, no amount of oohs and ahhs could express my excitement. If you’d fancy a dash of freshly baked goods tossed about in troves of vintage furniture, then this cafe is for you.
We tried several bakes, including the chocolate tart, lemon drizzle loaf, scones and savory muffin. But my favorite of them all is the passionfruit meringue tart. Sweet and tangy with a light texture, the tart is easy on the tummy and delightful on the palate.
We fell in love with their vintage homewares, and have solemnly sworn to scour the thrift stores and flea markets for some of our own. On that note, when’s our Australia road-trip gonna happen?
Above is X’s LC-A+, and below is me sneaking up on an unsuspecting baby. Look at her drool!
A little off the trail for the car-less ones, but C&C is definitely worth a short hide-and-seek.
