Blueberry Earl Grey Lavender Operette ($6.60)
This pastry was a blueberry sponge cake with caramel biscuit crunch and an Earl Grey lavender ganache. I loved the textural contrast from the caramel biscuit. It was a nicely complex and
Lavender Latte + Lavender Macaron
The lavender latte was very smooth and had a nice lavender flavour (without tasting like soap). We also tried their lavender macaron which was perfect as usual. It had a meringue-like texture with an eggshell-like outer crust.
Pastry of the Month ($6.95)
The highlight was the pastry of the month: lavender honey sage mousse, strawberry gelee, lavender sponge cake with a vanilla glaze. It was a beautifully crafted treat that was complex with different layers: the cake layer was at the bottom; the strawberry gelee was in the middle and the mousse was the outer layer. Very moist and not overly rich yet very satisfying.
