Boozy crepe cakes and afternoon tea await

New York staple Lady M expands its Singapore presence with yet another boutique. This time, it’s a global first—a Champagne Bar which aims to add sparkle to the luxurious cake experience.

Located on the third floor of Ion Orchard, the bar is suitably placed amongst high-end boutiques. The svelte decor of rose gold columns and custom-designed hanging lights is elegant and inviting and sets the perfect scene for the cakes and bubbles on offer.
 


 

Just check out the signature weekend afternoon tea ($60 for two), which presents Lady M’s iconic pastries and savouries on a two-tiered stand. Artisanal teas and two glasses of Bruno Paillard Champagne, Premiere Cuvee Extra Brut complete the indulgent experience.
 


 

As for cakes, go with the exclusive Champagne Mille Crepes, that steals the show with its layers of strawberry-laced pastry cream and Champagne gelee topper. Of course, the Champagne used is a Bruno Paillard Rose cuvee, lending its notes of berries to the cake. Alongside, you will find little Pink Petit Choux pastries enrobed in baby pink icing, and Petit Very Berry Tart dotted with a trio of berries which is a visual delight.
 


 

From the savoury offerings, the Open-faced Lobster Toast is a must-try, along with the Truffle Cream Crab Tartlet.

The refreshing mini cucumber sandwiches—a must for any high tea affair—nicely complements the Champagne as well as the tea offerings.
