Carry On Cafe + Bakery + Retail

Cuchi's love for Filipino snacks and desserts brought the lions to Carry On, a retail store cum cafe in the East. She was drooling over the pictures of the Ensaymada, Pandesal buns and Lengua de Gato on their Facebook page. She still remembers munching on caramalised Turons during lunch breaks at her erstwhile job located near snack joints and restaurants selling Filipino bites. Those were happy moments.

Carry On stocks Yadu Bags made from upcycled fabrics from clothes
and upholstery. The founder of this Filipino brand of durable bags
that advocates sustainability has been in the trade for 37 years.
Carry on is the brainchild of two girlfriends - a Singaporean and a
Filippina-Australian. Can't wait to try their more refined Spanish-influenced
Filippino bakes made from quality ingredients like French butter and
Valrhona chocolate.
Smooth Long Black and a full-bodied Latte. Ok coffee's
Most of the bakes on display were made in-house with a few
exceptions. Nice! But the lions were kinda disappointed that the
variety of more 'exotic' bakes were hmmm... dismal that day.
Many were mainstream stuff like brownies and run-of-the-mill
cakes. They took the Brazo de Mercedes - a soft meringue roll with
custard filing. It was lusciously good! Please bake more of these
unique babies instead!
They sell bicycles and guitar bags here as well.

Carry On pledges 10% of total sales proceeds for the month of November to support typhoon relief and recovery efforts in Tacloban. Head down for a good cause!
