Yesterdae was a small neighbourhood café set amid the HDB estates of Macpherson serving desserts. Started by a regular office working girl with a dream and passion for desserts, the café opened serving homemade ice cream. Committed to serve quality desserts, the café began baking their own cakes and pastries as well.
With no prior professional training on sugar craft, the owner/baker stumbled upon a hidden talent when she made her first sugar figurines by request from a customer. After the first fondant figurines were posted online, more and more requests for customized fondant cakes came and the customized cakes portfolio grew thereafter.
After operating for more than a year and a half and after much feedback from customers on serving more than just desserts, they decided to expand our operations. A stone throw away from the location of the Yesterdae café, MacPherson Community Club was undergoing a renovation and the space was a good fit to what they were looking for. After much planning and negotiation, Yesterdae shifted its operations there and rebranded itself as NOM-Bistro & Bakery.
Fully designed by PRODUCE, a local multi-disciplinary design firm equipped with manufacturing capability within the premises -
NOM-Bistro & Bakery was PRODUCE’s first F&B project and after exploring the MacPherson neighborhood, they found that the old public housing estate of MacPherson Gardens had lacked what we as Singaporeans have grown to become familiar with – a “void deck”. They gave the traditional idea of a void deck a makeover by transforming repetitive pillars into wireframes, remaking mosaic tiled concrete furniture with plywood and replicating one of our nationally iconic Dragon Playgrounds.
Through NOM Bistro & Bakery, PRODUCE intends to celebrate the existence of such communal spaces and hope to start a national conversation on the possible ways we can enliven our void decks.
