You no longer have to make a trek to indulge in these twee desserts. 

Famed Japanese patisserie Henri Charpentier opened its first outlet at Dempsey Hill to much fan fare nearly two years ago, and now the brand's fancy, French-inspired desserts are available in a more accessible, Orchard Road location.

Setting up shop at Orchard Central, Henri Charpentier's second branch is an intimate space that focuses on offering takeaway options, with a handful of tables for those who prefer to dine in. Items exclusive to the outlet include the Hanjuku fromage ($2.50), a souffle-style cheesecake, and the Hanjuku fromage with matcha ($3). Other signatures on the menu range from the les financiers ($2.90), an almond and butter cake, as well as the popular strawberry short cake ($10.20). 

Henri Charpentier's take-out branch is located at #01-18 Orchard Central. For more information, visit their Facebook page
