From Groundstory Coffee and Crafts — a new cafe-cum-retail concept that just opened its doors at 758 North Bridge Road. The retail space takes half of the shop space on the right, selling pretty homeware including ceramic plates and other home decor while the left is taken up by the cafe.

Opted for the Banana Cake; a gluten-free, nut-free, dairy-free Cake that is remotely similar to our neighbourhood style Banana Cake. Sourced from a home baker, I liked how the cake comes covered in desiccated coconut and even comes with a layer of it in between much like the frosting/icing/cream in a usual cake. Bits of dried cranberries also help to include a light tang to the cake for a slight contrast in flavour.

Flat White was also well pulled — creamy, smooth and comes with a medium body with a nutty, earth flavour profile — brewed from a blend of 50% Ethiopian and 50% Brazilian beans.
