Sure, it’s a cute little vintage bakery-cafe with a quirky collection of eclectic knick-knacks and I love how beautifully mismatched the different serving plates are, but I feel strangely underwhelmed by Carpenter and Cook after reading all the hype surrounding it.
Only a few pastries and cakes were available when we were there after dinner and no surprise that the signature passionfruit meringue tart, which is the one and only thing I wanted to try, was sold out. Those we tried, I think they were nice. Just “nice”, no “WOW” moment whatsoever, hmm.
Fruit Frangipane Tart ($6.20)
