Farewell? For now.



To our dearest ABR pals, 🀍

In the past 24 months since we started operations, we are grateful for all the validation and support you have so kindly shown us. While we had our fair share of ups and downs, we are proud to say that that we have poured our hearts out into every one of our creations, and have tried our hardest to honour our craft by focusing on skills, creativity, and quality. We took no shortcuts in this journey.

However, with our lease ending in August this year, it is bittersweet to announce that we have made the hard decision to not renew it. Our last day of operations will be 28 July 2024. 🀍

We will take this opportunity to have a brief respite of our own, and to re-evaluate our current position and offerings. Initially, given how much this community has grown, we had thoughts of expanding into a retail storefront. However, with the current rental market and increasing costs of supplies and manpower, it is only prudent to pause and reconsider our path forward. We too, have lots of unanswered questions, but are still trying to navigate through the uncertainties.

To everyone whom we had the pleasure of baking for, we hope our treats provided you with some comfort and joy. To those who celebrated special occasions such as birthdays, weddings, and anniversaries with us, we are immensely grateful to have been able to share in your love and joy. This community has been the most loyal and generous with word-of-mouth referrals, and we appreciate you all very much.

We also extend our deepest gratitude to those who have been part of this journey - our pop-up partners, collaborators, friends, family, ABR crew, and loved ones. Your support has been invaluable, and we couldn’t have done it without you.

In celebration of us, and as a one last hoorah for now, we are thrilled to announce that we will be having a special collaboration on the weekend of 20th to 21st July, so stay tuned for updates! Lastly, for those who would like to savour our bakes one last time, our pre-orders will remain open until 28 July 2024 via our website.

Once again, thank you for seeking a respite in us. We hope to serve you again!
