As the name suggest, the owner of The
Carpenter’s Daughter really is true to its name. Hence, you will notice that
some of the tables and chairs used are quite different – in a way that you may
cannot describe. After all, those are done by the father. Solid, comfortable
and aesthetically fitting within its theme. Inside, you will be greeted with a
warm and cozy ambiance, where tables are fitted with a picnic-like table cloth
and a green wall featuring some posters.

To begin, here are some of their latest additions to the menu.
We started off with a delicious and simple Classic French Toast. With homemade bread, organic Agave, baked apple cinnamon, butter and jam. Firm and fluffy sticks of french toast, lightly browned on the edge goes perfectly well with some organic Agave and baked apple cinnamon. Alternatively, the combination of butter and jam was delicious as well. Perfect for a Sunday breakfast, or any other day's breakfast for that matter.
Followed by a beautiful selection of Bread Platter. Served with 4 types of bread; tomato, 7-grain, cranberry and ciabatta, truffle butter, walnuts and a vine of delicious and seedless grapes. The assortment of the different types of bread are indeed lovely, each unique to its own flavour and texture. Not to mention they work brilliantly with the truffle butter.
Delicious serving of shrimp and scallop infused with garlic, herbs and a hint of chilli and served with a crispy Italian square bread. Simply place the shrimp on the square bread and spread some of the delicious oil/sauce on the surface to enjoy. The simplicity of presentation and complexity of flavour are absolutely brilliant.
Not forgetting the complete breakfast menu. Served with fresh Muesli yogurt parfait, fresh orange juice, salad, mini roll with tuna and a pastry of the day. The presentation is simple, elegant and has an essence of France, where they serve breakfast in bed.
For the pasta, you will get a choice of penne or spaghetti where it is served al-dante. With just the right consistency of olive oil, the pasta is light and the seasoning along with the garlic works beautifully. It coats each and every strand of spaghetti with easy. The additional slices smoked duck are seared skin-side down, which gives them a slightly crispier skin. Finished with a squeeze of lemon juice, the pasta is simply vibrant, well-flavoured and absolutely delicious.
For those who enjoy having tea-time, The Carpenter’s Daughter has just the thing for you. Served with a wide selection of premium tea (Ronnefeldt Tea), scones with jam & cream, pastry, cake, sandwiches and macarons. Everything you will get is rather straight-forward as they are placed beautifully and neatly on a multi-tier tray.
Scones are made to be fluffy and light
which pairs brilliantly with the cream and jam. Along with macarons that
crumbles easily and packed with natural flavour, it’s a treat to say the least.
Overall, The Carpenter’s Daughter has more
to offer than meets the eye. From their excellent selection of breads and
pastries to their ever so delicious main course, everything is well executed
and presented. Of course, food is not all just about how it looks as taste is
the utmost priority, in which The Carpenter’s Daughter can easily achieve.
