Retail shopping from home is easy, but recreating the aesthetic and ambience of your favorite space from the good ‘ol days of café hopping is a little bit harder. Fear not – here are shops to get you started on this journey of replicating the warm light #flatlay, good food and drinks included.

Eat: Frosting In A Box
We’ve given you reccos for sweet pastries, now how about savory breads? Frosting In A Box does both, of course, but they do a pretty mean pan de flores, which translates to flower bread. It’s basically art that uses carbs as a canvas and vegetables as paint – swoonworthy, indeed.

Drink: sundays only
Our bellies are thankful for the home cooks that have rediscovered their talents/family recipes and set up their own businesses through the stay-home period. We love cozying up with our latest fave: sundays only, which sells bottles of chai concentrate that produces fragrant, well-balanced chai lattes that're not too sweet. Also pairs well with its home-made granola and fig jam – no trips to fancy cafés necessary.

You’ve got the food and drinks. Now, complete the recreation of your fave café #flatlay with tableware from Ohleaf, which sells thoughtfully-made vessels from young product designers and ceramic artists. As with handmade ceramics, no two products are alike – so whatever you get will be unique and oh-so-wonderful.

BONUS: Pew Pew Patches
This iron-on and sticker patches shop is the right place to inject a little bit of sunshine onto your aprons and kitchen linens. Patches range from Sanrio-meets-Singapore collections (think Gudetama lazing on a Peranakan tile) to witty work-related ones that take the piss at capitalist colloquialisms (co-lazing spaces; a ‘revert’ UNO card) – all in all, lots of fun for lots of surfaces.
