In a quaint corner of the heavily industrial Cavan Road is the unassuming four-seater Sweets Craftsman. Sporting a homely interior with beige wood panelling and soft pastel colours, I felt as if I was the main character in a coming-of-age film set in the Taiwanese countryside in the early 2000s.

The staff who served us was cheerful, friendly, and happily described the gorgeous pastries on display. Charmed by the whimsical Mount Fuji decals on the rolls, we decided on the Matcha Fujiro and the Thai Milk Tea. The cream was light and fresh, nothing like the canned cream you get in supermarkets. The flavours were pretty subtle, but this meant that the rolls were light for something that was nearly 80% cream. I liked that the matcha taste was authentic, and appreciated the contrast between the mildly bitter matcha and the subtly sweet raspberry in the Matcha Fujiro. We were both surprised that the Thai Milk Tea flavour was not as heavy as the drink itself, and the staff eagerly explained that the stunning blue hue came naturally from the butterfly pea flower.

Overall, we really enjoyed our visit for the atmosphere, service and food! Do come early as there are only four seats inside (which also creates more intimate vibes) and ask the staff what is available that day, as the display counter is not big enough to fit everything. Undeniably, the prices are on the high side and may not be sustainable for students who earn very little (or nothing), but the rolls do make for a good treat once in a while. We’d definitely come back soon!
