Lady M Confections @ Marina Square

The marketing hype surrounding this famous cake shop from NYC has been bombarded local media so it wasn't a surprise when we went there in one late afternoon, the eatery was full and we needed to queue. This outlet is located in the new wing of Marina Square, the Dining Edition area.

While queuing, we saw a few tables which vacant and getting more tables as some were leaving but there was no staff in attendance and even acknowledged seeing us standing in the line.

Even the couple stood behind me getting impatient after seeing how we in line were being ignored. It was an annoying start indeed.

One of the male staff saw me and he kinda nodded to us but didn't really welcome us but we took it as a sign for us to sit in on one of the cleaned table.

Ironically, the couple behind us was then being noticed by other young staff and were guided to sit and given a menu; whereas, the male staff who saw us first didn't even bother to attend to us and most of them just huddled and chatted behind the beverage counter.

I had to ask for the menu, given and immediately ordered it, and again worry whether they got our order right as I noticed another discrepancies, some of the staff took the order by keying it into electronic pad, while ours was no note taking at all.

There was no consistency at all; most of staff were either huddled and chatted behind the cake counter or the beverage counter and none were really looking over for tables and incoming patrons.

Our order came and yes, while the layered cake tasted good but nonetheless, it wasn't that fantastic and aching your dessert appetite to return here.

I strongly suggest if you wish to try Lady M cake, please order a take away which was done directly at the cake counter instead of sitting in to have your tea break. It wasn't worth the wait and expenses.

The cake counter, much worth it to order a take away

These were 'empty' tables yet no one looked at us to welcoming us for a seat

Lady M Iced Grey and Lady M Iced Café
Nothing special though

Vanilla Mille Crepes
Twenty paper-thin handmade crepes layered with light pastry cream
This was the trademark and others were just average

Gateau Aux Marrons
Almond flour cake with whipped cream and chestnut cream


You got slight hints of almond taste but it was mostly icing and it looked different than the pix
