Yum!

Picked up five slices of cake to take back to our hotel for a little sugar snack. We devoured all of it...every piece was so good. Red Velvet, Chocolate (checkerboard), Strawberry, Banana and the signature multi layer....all fantastic. My favorites were the Strayberry and Chocolate. The line to... read more

I ordered about 10 different things and shared with friends. Nothing stood out as amazing or something I would go back for. Their tea was very good though. Although it took a very long time for them to bring it to us.

I have to be honest, I found these cakes to be pretty underwhelming. They were tasty for sure but I guess I was just expecting more from them after hearing so much about Lady M. Also, for the exorbitant price, I really expected better. They are an interesting concept, crepe cakes, but the flavor just wasn't there for me. I've... More

The green tea eclair was the best thing I had here. We went here twice, and always faced line ups. The products were pretty good, but the service was not exceptional, and the food wasn't as good as the line ups would suggest.

Beautiful store and lovely layout of desserts. We ordered 5 slices and 2 drinks between us. The green tea and layered crepe cakes were our favourites. Definitely recommends a visit.

Went here during New Years week, after a dinner, and there was a sign on the door that read' Sorry, Sold Out'. Deeply curious I went back the next day, New Years eve, and they were only selling 9" cakes, for $75+, and 'no slices' that day. Finally got a slice of the Mille Crêpes cake today, and it honestly...

After my last trip, I knew I'd be back to Lady M, and luckily it was over my birthday. I went in excited to get my favorite cake--their classic Nuage. Unfortunately, it had been replaced with a seasonal cake. I inquired with an employees I recognized from my last visit, and he sensed my sadness at not having my perfect... More

For a taste of heaven, go to the Plaza Food Hall area and beeline straight for Lady M. Order the luscious green tea crepe cake and it will be forever your craving. Avoid the 78th St. boutique. They're snobs. I tried to order a cake there and asked if they could deliver to my double parked car which was right... More

I thought this place was going to be a hit because there is always a line at the door. Well... It's horrible!!! We ordered the green tea cake and another one that I can't even remember what it was because we had to throw it away it was so bad. The green tea one is so bitter you can finish... More
