Hairloom & Caramel is a salon+cafe tucked at a corner of Shaw Towers. Hairloom, as the name suggests, is the salon whereas the cafe is known as “Caramel Cafe”. The cafe is as sweet as its name suggests and literally a girl’s dream-come-true with the quaintest furniture and decor. Definitely an ideal place for afternoon tea and girlish tête-à-tête!

There is no food menu – the selection of salad/sandwich/mains is written on the blackboard and there were about 10 choices with very reasonable price tag. The desserts deserve thumbs-up though!

Japanese Goma style spaghetti with chicken (S$13.50): Very light and simple dish. Ordinary.

Green Tea Azuki (left) and Citrus (Right) cupcakes (S$3.90 each). Miss Glitzy loves both cupcakes! Although expensive, these exquisite cupcakes were good stuff with the cream neither overpowering nor hopelessly sweet. Miss Glitzy is drooling now while browsing their cupcake collection on the blog.

Bread Pudding (S$5.90).  Miss Glitzy is a fan of bread pudding. Maybe that’s why she thinks she is beginning to look like a bread pudding. Anyway Caramel’s version is a tad different from the usual. The pudding is slightly harder and less creamy. It’s like a slice of Nonya kueh with a generous scoop of vanilla ice-cream and loads of vanilla sauce and raisins! While the dessert deviates from the usual soft and lumpy texture, Miss Glitzy likes this new interpretation.

hairloom5

Chocolate Banana cake (S$5.90). This looks like decadent indulgence but surprisingly, the chocolate layer was not heavy or sinful. The banana layer was quite thin but blended well with the chocolate cake. Miss Glitzy thinks that even peeps who hate bananas are gonna love this!

On the whole, Miss Glitzy would love to head back to Caramel for tea and cakes again! There was a group of young folks having a birthday party there and it looked fun! Miss Glitzy gonna shortlist this place for cozy party, gathering.. maybe a book club meeting?
