A small cosy outlet tucked away in the quiet corners of Millenia Walk. It extends lengthwise and has just enough space for a table of 4 and a narrow walkway. Walking further in, you find a communal bar counter top with swivel chairs. And a shelf of merchandise for sale.
Here for a healthy treats baking workshop conducted by cafe owner, Celine, herself. A vivacious character, she makes you feel like you're right at home here in her shop. A family who dropped in for some brunch was tended to by Celine, talking to their child and making sure the food is to their taste. It's this kind of personal service that has become a dying breed in our society today.
Generously sharing her recipe on the most popular non-chocolate dessert at their shop, we set out to try our hands at the various stages of baking their shop's own carrot cake.
While waiting, I had a flat white ($5) redolent with the fragrance of single origin beans from Papa Palheta and a blueberry crumble muffin she made specially for us.
Messing about with cream cheese frosting, we got to frost our own cupcakes and try the extras. The carrot cake was moist and light. Complimented with the savoury sweet and rich cream cheese frosting. This was a dream. And she very endearingly prepared their original mini lava cakes retailing at $3.90 instore for us to takeaway.
I popped the lava cake into the microwave for 10 seconds and as the name aptly implies, it flowed out like hot lava after i cut it up for sharing at home.
Perfect place for a lazy Sunday brunch. Quiet yet cosy. I'll be sure to check out their new outlet at Craft Bakery Holland village.
