The Carpenter's Daughter - An Artisan Bakery in KL

If Cath Kidston were passing through KL (okay, Subang Jaya to be technical) she'd probably stop by at The Carpenter's Daughter for lunch.  Think cosy polka dot tablecloths, homely sofas and a blackboard menu.  (For a moment I thought I was back in cosy Harrow on The Hill on a drizzly London afternoon.)  Oh, and did I mention the food tastes good too?

The Carpenter's Daughter is both a bakery and a cafe.  The cafe sits between the kitchen and the bakery and is suffused with the comforting smell of freshly baked organic breads.  There's an extensive menu of breakfasts, nibbles, sweet treats, lunches and dinners.  If you've been hankering for a satisfying bowl of soup or a proper Sunday brunch with all the trimmings this is the place for you.  It's also a great place to take little ones.  We visited with Master Three and found lots of things on the menu to suit his (fussy) taste buds.  Of particular note, in his opinion, was the walnut sourdough with rozelle jam.  It's a friendly, welcoming place - both the owner and her staff took the time to chat with our little guy (and proffer a few sample cookies, much to his delight).

Master Three's airplane chose my yummy gourmet sandwich as his landing strip.  Good choice!

The bakery stocks a dizzying range of handmade breads that changes daily.  We made sure we stocked up on a few.  It's well worth the drive from KL to pick up some of the mixed grains, herb breads, pretzels, brioche and sourdoughs.  I strongly suspect we'll be back.  And you should go too.
