Nestled along Horne Road at Jalan Besar is the lovely Windowsill Pies, a sweet little cafe serving dainty artisanal pies and great coffees and teas.
What we love is that upon entering the cafe, one is greeted immediately by warm yellow lighting and the welcome sight of beautiful pies waiting to be picked in the display case. Definitely a great way to get one hyped up for a great cafe visit! The pie flavours are highly imaginative, and will definitely induce a serious case of spoilt for choice — take your pick from crowd favourites such as coconut lime vodka; grasshopper (flourless chocolate cake base topped with fresh mint cream); funny apple and so on.
The cafe interior is effortlessly chic with the use of minimalist wooden furniture, paired with slight retro influences in interior design — for example, we loved the cute vintage yellow refrigerator that is used to store bottles of iced water for the customers! If you’re in luck, snag one of the cafe’s window seats and while the afternoon away with a savoury eat and a hot beverage (we recommend the hot mocha or chai latte)! Perfect for the chilly temperatures that Singapore is experiencing now, we say!
For those of you pie-lovers who are unable to make it down, you’ll be delighted to know that Windowsill Pies takes in orders via their website as well. For $70, you can get your hands on 10 slices of their pretty pies, picking up to five flavours at that! Now you know what to do for that upcoming Christmas pot luck party!
