Boasting an extensive selection of waffle and pancake flavour combinations, Les Patisseries is a great place to head to for desserts in the Upper Thomson area. It’s especially nice for chilling out at, because it’s a lot less crowded than the other cafes around the same neighbourhood.

The Houjicha molten pancake is the chef’s special creation and one of the recommended items on the menu. It’s an interesting take on molten desserts, and the roasted tea taste comes through quite well. The molten Houjicha doesn’t flow out that fast, because it’s very thick, but that wasn’t a deal breaker for me as I loved the texture of the lava and its contrast with the pancake. The pancake is topped with black sesame ice cream, kurogoma coral and sesame tuile . I love this pairing so much, and the black sesame taste is so good. I feel that the ice cream deserves a mention of its own as the goma flavour was so strong and nutty. In addition, there’s actually tons of whole sesame seeds inside, which gives lots of nutty flavour and crunchiness in each spoonful. I love it! I loved the Houjicha molten pancake, but there’s so many options for pancakes and waffles that I’m excited to return for the other desserts (and another taste of that black sesame ice cream!).

Chope bookings are possible, but requires a minimum spend of $10 per diner (not too difficult if everyone orders a drink and you get a dessert to share).
