The Unveiling of The Atelier Cafe


Atelier (meaning an artist's workroom) is a beautiful British colonial house, nestled amongst lush greenery atop a windy hill.

The building, built in 1928, houses the works of many a local artist, with works ranging from orchid-hornbill-pitcher plant paintings in the form of batik-janting, to intricately carved belian (iron wood) blocks converted into pieces that any fun-loving art enthusiast would appreciate.

The society holds workshops for local and international artists from time to time (ie. fibre paper making; the International "Ikat" Forum; natural dye; stone carving; pottery; oil painting; batik painting; etc.) and represents a worthy site for the artists to display their masterpieces.

It is here that we have set up base.

The fully refurbished baking kitchen is now fit to see pans of cakes, tarts, pastries and other sweet-tooth-inducing confections whereas the cooking kitchen is green light-ed to receive wok upon wok of divine peranakan dishes.


Are you drooling yet?



Yummmm!


We had a soft-opening cum birthday bash for my Dad at Atelier last night. T'was a success! I'm happy to say that we received a few bookings last night, for weddings, tea parties, luncheons and in-house catering. We had an inquiry about holding a wedding anniversary there too. How exciting! I am so pleased :)
