Many many months ago, I had a sweet pie from Windowsill Pies’ temporary kiosk in a mall and I simply loved it. It was only later that I found out they had a very much talked about shop along Horne Road. It is in this vicinity that you will find some other interesting cafes like Chye Seng Huat Hardware (150 Tyrwhitt Road) and the first Antoinette (30 Penhas Road).
Windowsill Pies’ interesting shop facade definitely stands out amongst the old shop-houses along the same stretch. It faces the Jalan Besar stadium and that is where you might find parking if you were driving.
Immediately after you step inside, you will be welcomed by a good showcase of pies amidst cute, trendy and warm decor, plus young and friendly staff.
We chose the Funny Apple (S$7.50), Cherry (S$8), Strawberry Lemon (S$7) and S’mores (S$8). My favorite was S’mores. I was telling my not-so-little-anymore cousin Trudy a few days later that I visited Windowsills and her first exclamation was “S’mores!”. Okay… so I am not the only fan. Heh…
If you like something tart, the Cherry will be a good choice. And if you want something safe and non-chocolate, definitely the Funny Apple. I only tried 4 flavours but there were 9-10 on display so there should be something for every palate. Visit their website for a full description of their different pies (www.windowsillpies.sg).
They offer a reasonable range of coffee, tea and drinks to complement your pies. But if you want to save on the calories, they also serve plain chilled water, which interestingly, is kept in a retro-chic yellow fridge and you can help yourself if you need refills. I thought this was quite cool.
