Lady M – Cake shop for layered mille-feuille crêpe cakes
Known for its tantalising signature mille-feuille crêpe cakes, Lady M commands queues around the block, and for good reason. Its super thin crêpes, sandwiched together with a thin layer of fresh cream, make for a surprisingly light cake variation. We’d recommend calling ahead to find out availability of its whole cakes, as they tend to sell out fast!
