After having tried Lady M at Bryant Park several weeks ago, as well as the one in the Plaza Hotel, we decided to go on the Upper East Side, thinking that, as it is their original location, it would be bigger and would have more choices.
I admit that I was a bit disappointed as it was the same size as the other one and the same menu, but my disappointment did not last too long at the sight of these spectacular cakes that they showcase.
I was there fixated on one and one only cake: the Mont Blanc!
It is made of cream and chestnut cream and topped with a fresh chestnut.
When you start digging in, you are wondering where the cream is.
But then you find it and you are happy about it, because it cuts on the sweetness of the chestnut cream; because yes, it is very sweet. But very addictive too, to the point that I finished it...
Jodi was set for the vanilla mille-crepe, but finally decided to order the banana mille feuilles:
It is made of big chunks of banana, puff pastry, whipped cream and layers of sponge cake. This was sublime! It reminded me of a banana cream pie in a way.
These desserts were perfect with my double espresso. Jodi ordered a tea that was good, but pricey ($8)!
The more I try Lady M, the more...
Dreamy Citron Mille Crepes. A bite of sunshine after a dreary day. Perfect balance of light and creamy lemon custard with burst of brightness between layers of thin crepes. Fragrant and not too sweet. Topped with candies lemon zest and snow sugar Feeling much better now #ladyM ladymcakes plazafoodhall

Lady M’s Cake Boutique, Upper East Side, NYC
Lady M’s Cake Boutique is aptly situated off the fashionable Madison Avenue row.
Housed in a surprisingly lackluster space, this confection parlor makes up for its cramped digs by what it offers beyond the gleaming glass case.
The Mille Crêpes cake itself is worth a trip there but wait there is much more. You must try the Gateau au Chocolat and the Strawberry Mille Feuille is to die for and one of my personal favorites is the Gateau aux Marrons.
I wasn’t impressed though by the Mimosa or the Raspberry Chocolate Cake and would avoid those for sure.
I would recommend take out versus staying in to eat your sweets as the space is very small and really doesn’t have any charm to it though the servers are super friendly.
Anyhow, whichever way you choose to slice the cake – Lady M’s Cake Boutique was got a winning formula going on!
