Definitely the best Pâtisserie you can find in Bangkok at affordable price in relate to the quality of the pastries, almost fine dining standard!

I always made at least 1-2 trips to Let Them Eat Cake whenever I’m in Bangkok, that’s how good they are!

St. Honoré Rose-Raspberry

St. Honoré Rose-Raspberry – 185 baht ($7.4 SGD)

My #1 cake of all time! The taste is heavenly, it delights your palette and yet sweetness remain subtle. Crunch is just nice too, just feel sad that I’ve only managed to eat this twice due to this pastry being a seasonal flavor.

As their collections are seasonal (other than the classic collection), I only managed to eat this during my May 2014 trip.

St. Honoré Rhapsodie

St. Honoré Rhapsodie – 195 baht ($7.8 SGD)
Puff pastry, caramelized choux pastry, blackcurrant compote, black currant pastry cream, violet Chantilly cream, crystallized violet petals

The texture and crunch is similar to St. Honoré Rose-Raspberry, but this one is too sweet and of a different flavor.

Thai Tea Tart

Thai Tea Tart – 145 baht ($5.8 SGD)
Sweet almond tart dough, Thai tea-white chocolate ganache, genoise biscuit soaked in Thai tea syrup, Thai tea mousse, Thai tea glaze, Thai tea jelly

A very flavorful tart, you can really feel the intense flavor of the Thai tea in the cake. Overall, very good and unique, but you might get a bit tired of it after the half-way point due to it’s strong and intense flavor.

La Passion

La Passion – 175 baht ($7 SGD)
Almond dacquoise, Passion Fruit mousse, Jellified Raspberry Coulis, Raspberry Crisp

Only tried this on my recent Sep 2015 trip, and it has become my #2 cake of Let Them Eat Cake!

Texture is smooth and bouncy, flavor is a nice fruity balance between sweet and sour too.
La Passion is easy to eat, and will make you feel wanting more!

*I’m a rather picky person, cause I don’t really like to eat too sweet stuffs (like soft drinks or typical average quality cakes and stuffs which are always SO sweet!), so it’s not easy for me to like cakes or pastries, unless it’s of high quality.

All-Chocolate Tart

All-Chocolate Tart – 145 baht ($5.8 SGD)
Cocoa-almond tart dough, dark chocolate ganache, flourless chocolate cake soaked in cocoa syrup, dark chocolate mousse, dark chocolate glaze

The bittersweet dark chocolate glaze, and the thick chocolate tart will definitely make all chocolate lovers go YEAH! The flavors just hit the right spots, and as usual of Let Them Eat Cake skill and quality, it’s flavorful and yet not too sweet.

Lemon Tart

Lemon Tart – 145 baht ($5.8 SGD)
Sweet almond tart dough, lemon cream, candied lemon Zest

It’s good but it just doesn’t stand out in compared to the rest of the cakes, as we have high expectations from Let Them Eat Cake.

If you like Lemon Tart, do try it.

Le Cube Tahitien

Le Cube Tahitien – 195 baht ($7.8 SGD)
Financier biscuit, Tahitian vanilla mousse, Tahitian vanilla, white chocolate ganache, white chocolate glaze

Just purely for pictorial purposes, as I can’t remember the taste nor the rating back then.
Ate this during May 2014.

Note: I ate at this Pâtisserie for multiple times in 3 trips (May 2014, Dec 2014, and Sep 2015), the photos are all from the combined trips.

Conclusion: This is one Pâtisserie that I will definitely go at least once when I visit Bangkok without fail, it’s that good. I can safely say all the pastries there are good (in skill and quality), based on the amount of cakes I’ve tried there. It’s more of a, which pastries are the outstanding ones and shines among the good ones.

The price might look on the high side on a glance, but you must remember their pastries are almost fine dining quality (in my opinion). Few years back I ate desserts in 2 top fine dining restaurants in Sydney (Quay and Universal), and each of their dessert cost from $25-40 AUD (same in SGD), whereas Let Them Eat Cake pastries range about 100-195 baht ($4-8 SGD).

By this comparison, Let Them Eat Cake is at an awesome price with such quality, though of course the 2 Sydney restaurants are still of a league higher. To be honest I don’t think I can find any Pâtisserie in Singapore with the same quality as them and at this price range (or even 2x price).

Just do yourself a favor and visit this Pâtisserie if you are in Bangkok, no regrets!
