The Tiny Roaster

Bloesem Living | Coffee shop stop: The Tiny Roaster by Zara S.

On wednesdays when I am not at Bloesem I try to spend some time exploring parts of Singapore I have not seen. One wednesday, a friend invited us to the The Tiny Roaster, a little cafe his sister had just opened. The loveliest little coffee studio it was to spend an afternoon in.  They offer artisan hand brews, as well as roasted coffee beans, for you to get your caffeine kick at home.

Located in Clementi, Singapore, it is tucked away between some of the blocks of houses but it is definitely worth visiting. Have a look at the photos yourself! You just know they put their heart and soul into everything, from the coffee to the decor. (I was told the beautiful door handle was made by the dad of the owner. ) Xo, Zara.

The Kitchen Table

Bloesem Living | Shop stop: The Kitchen Table bakery and restaurant in KL, Malaysia

Let us take you on a tour of The Kitchen Table - bakery by day, restaurant by night - with pictures courtesy of Trisha Toh and The Kitchen Table's website. Though it would be ideal to visit the place ourselves, and of course we would if we found ourselves in the Kuala Lumpur area anytime soon, but for now these photographs are more than enough to wet our appetite both for food and this beautiful interior!

Lokl

Bloesem Living | LOKL Kualar Lumpar

A few weeks back we met Ping & Cheryl, a very friendly couple from Malaysia while they were in Singapore. After chatting for awhile, we found out that they are the owners of the cafe LOKL in Kualar Lumpur! (Love the name of the cafe!) They are also connected to BackHome hostel (pictures below), which looks like a lovely place to stay if you are ever visiting KL.

LOKL is a neighbourhood cafe in the historic heart of KL. They serve espressos and local coffee, hot sandwiches with a local twist, and cakes and pastries. It is housed in a bright airy space with an internal courtyard that’s shared with BackHome hostel.
