Cititour Review:

Lady M, whoa that lady of great pastry lore, produces what is hands-down the most ethereally light mille-crepe cake. Literally translating to thousand crepes, the cakes consist of many many layers of perfectly thin, airy crepes, sandwiching pastry cream that is flavored, depending on which cake you order, green tea (a fan favorite), chocolate, plain vanilla... whichever you get though, you will be surprised by just how light a cream can taste. The flavor itself is rich - green tea extremely pronounced, chocolate extremely rich while still not bogging you down - and leaves no question in your mind what you're eating. The best part is, since each slice doesn't weigh you down after you eat them, you still feel like you can eat another slice, and another... without needing to waddle out of the beautiful storefront.
