Lady M


I went to the Plaza Food Hall boutique to try mille feuille. The selection at the Plaza Food Hall compared to the menu online is only a fraction of the offerings. Originally I had wanted to try afew of the following: green tea mille crepe, citron/lemon mille crepe, coconut mille crepe, chocolate banana mille crepe and the marron/chestnut mille crepe. The chocolate banana mille crepe is only available at the Plaza Food Hall location.
Checkers
Chocolate Cakes
original Mille Crepe
Strawberry Shortcake
The selection at the Plaza Food Hall when I was lining up consisted of the following: original mille crepe, green tea mille crepe, chocolate banana mille crepe, strawberry mille crepe, checkers, flourless chocolate cake, chocolate cake, chestnut cake, mimosa, strawberry shortcake and cheesecake. While I was lining up in the early afternoon, they ran out of green tea mille crepe cake. Each slice of cake is $8 USD.

Chestnut Cake
I got the chocolate banana mille crepe, chestnut cake and mimosa. I had initially thought that the chestnut cake was the chestnut mille crepe. The signs for the cakes at Lady M are in a way misleading since it only states the flavour such as marron, cheese, etc. rather than specifying whether it’s a cake or a mille crepe as well. The chestnut cake is an almond flour cake covered in chestnut-infused cream with a whipped cream center and topped with roasted walnuts and snow sugar. It was good even though it wasn’t what I thought I ordered. The chestnut mille crepe that I would have preferred to try is layers of crepes with chestnut-infused pastry cream in between the crepes and topped with powdered sugar.
Chocolate Banana Mille Crepe
The chocolate banana mille crepe is layers of chocolate lacy edged crepes with banana-infused pastry cream in between the crepes. It was good although it was abit hard to cut into bite sized pieces with only a fork.
Mimosa
I got the slice of Mimosa cake as a lark because of how pretty it looked in the display case. It’s a vanilla sponge cake with the top and edges comprised of cubes and filled with vanilla custard. The custard was delicious and overall it was a tasty sponge cake.

If you’re a fan of mille crepes, cakes and dessert then you should try Lady M.

Millie Creperie

 

 

After eating a taco at 7 Lives, my friend and I decided to get dessert at Millie Creperie which is also located in Kensington Market. Their specialty is Japanese crepes which are handheld compared to French crepes which are plated. We got the Japanese Special Crepe ($6.75).

The Japanese Special Crepe consists of strawberry, red bean paste (azuki), green tea gelato and whipped cream that’s rolled around a crepe. It’s quite good since you can’t go wrong with a strawberry, red bean and green tea combination that’s topped with whipped cream.

Caffe Demetre

My university friends and I decided to have dessert here since a friend hadn’t been here before. I’ve been here several times and only to the Richmond Hill location on Hwy 7. I normally get crepes because I’m a huge fan of crepes. Caffe Demetre specializes in dessert and specifically crepes, waffles, cakes and ice creams. The menu changed between the last two times I went. The menu was the how I remembered it back in April 2014 and it was completely reconfigured in late August. The crepe selection was different, the ice cream selection looked different and the names changed to more current pop culture references. I find that if you go in the afternoon, barely anyone is there and my friends and I were able to get the whole restaurant to ourselves for afew hours and the other customers chose to sit out on the patio so we continued to enjoy having a restaurant to ourselves. In the evenings (no matter if it’s a weekday or a weekend), it’s much busier and you may have to wait for seats.

I had the DIY sundae ($11.58 + tip) because I felt too full for crepes. I chose the DIY Sundae with 2 scoops of ice cream and 3 toppings. I got the Xocolātl Roché ice cream, Cocoa Chanel ice cream, caramelized bananas, oven-baked apple crisps and spicy sweet candied peanuts with whipped cream, Morello cherry and a slice of waffle biscuit. The Xocolātl Roché consists of Belgian dark chocolate ice cream combined with pure hazelnut and mixed with Hazelnut Praliné Croquant & Belgian Dark Chocolate Crackle while the Cocoa Chanel ice cream is made of French dark chocolate with a mélange of meringue, Oreo pieces and brownies. I was in chocolate heaven that was accompanied by delectable toppings.

One friend had apple cider. The drink is called Incider Information ($2.75). Initially my friend was thinking of getting the Cider House Rules ($3.75) but decided to be more healthy. Incider Information is just apple cider with a cinnamon stick while Cider House Rules is apple cider with caramel & cinnamon flavour shots, whipped cream, Caramel Anglaise drizzle and Cinnamon.

Another friend took my recommendation to get a crepe. She got the Chewbaclava crepe ($12.75 + tax & tip). The Chewbaclava crepe consists of Sweet Baklava ice cream with Baklava bits, Quebec maple syrup, whipped cream and cinnamon streusel. She didn’t like the baklava bits but otherwise she liked the crepe.

Two other friends got cakes. One got the Cocoa Ono ($10.50 + tax & tip). The Cocoa Ono cake consists of a Chocolate Fudge Cake that’s slightly heated with Honey Madagascar Vanilla ice cream, Belgian dark chocolate sauce and it’s dusted with icing sugar. She enjoyed it.

The other got the Mousse Almighty ($10.75 + tax & tip). The Mousse Almighty cake consists of a Chocolate Mousse Cheesecake with chocolate ice cream, strawberries, Belgian dark chocolate sauce and it’s dusted with icing sugar. He enjoyed it.

When I’m craving Western dessert, specifically crepes, my go-to place is Cafe Demetre.

Juliette et Chocolat

One of my friends had raved to me about eating crepes and chocolate at Juliette et Chocolat. When I was in Montreal last November, I didn’t have enough time to go eat here. This time around my friends and I came here at night for dessert. There was a slight line up and the patio wasn’t open even though it’s the end of May.

I first wanted to try their Spicy Sunset alcoholic chocolate drink ($10.50) however you have to order a crepe or salad in order to be able to get an alcoholic drink due to their restrictive alcoholic license. In the end I was debating between the Maralumi 64% ($11.75) or the Mangaro 65% ($11.75). The Maralumi 64% is made with dark chocolate from New Guinea and it’s suppose to be spicy with hints of green banana, gooseberry and pomegranate. The Mangaro 65% is made with dark chocolate from Madagascar with hints of mango, gingerbread and citrus fruits. I thought I ordered the Maralumi but I was given the Mangaro instead. The Mangaro was very chocolate-y. At first I was able to taste the mangoes but after awhile all I could taste was chocolate. I’m a self-confessed chocoholic but this drink was very chocolate-y. I needed alot of water to help finish the Mangaro Noir drink.

My university friend got the Sao Tome 70% ($10.50). It’s suppose to have hints of fruits and vanilla with a bitter cocoa taste which is expected since it’s dark chocolate. My friend liked it.

My friend got the Ivory brownie ($3.75). The Ivory brownie is white chocolate and coconut. It was really sweet.

If you’re not a major chocoholic, this place may not be right for you.

Cafe Bene

Afew of my high school friends and I went to Cafe Bene to have dessert last Friday. It’s on the second floor on top of a bar&grill. It’s a cute little quaint place. It’s quite small but the tables there have a sense of privacy due to the way the place is structured. There are also rooms for karaoke. One friend had the affogato coffee which is ice cream with chocolate syrup drizzled on it in coffee. Another friend had iced peppermint latte. I got the parfait ($9 including tax).

The parfait is made of crushed ice, pieces of strawberries, strawberry ice cream, pieces of kiwi, mango ice cream, pieces of bananas, cornflakes and waffle cookies with chocolate syrup drizzled on top of whipped cream. It was yummy.

Overall, if you’re in North York and feeling like dessert, coffee, or karaoke in a nice, small, fairly quiet place then Cafe Bene fits the bill.
