After a trial run with a Los Altos pop-up, Lady M is putting down roots there, and the high-end cake boutique's mille crêpe cakes are now on permanent offer.
The popular New York City-based confectioner launched a pop-up at 4598 El Camino Real in Los Altos in late 2019.
As of Oct. 22, the space has been transformed into a dine-in boutique, offering a variety of mille crêpe cakes in flavors like pumpkin nuage, checkers, green tea, tiramisu and butter pecan. The cakes are made from layers of cream and crepes stacked on top of each other, creating a moist, rich texture.
Cakes are sold whole or by the slice and are not cheap, with each slice coming in at around $10 and most 9-inch cakes priced at more than $100.

People are encouraged to come earlier in the day for a larger selection of cakes because they often sell out, according to Lady M spokesperson Monica Kenny.
"We are excited that our customers at Los Altos can have the elevated Lady M experience of sitting down and enjoying our luxury confections with their choice of signature Lady M beverages," Kenny said in an email.
Beverages include Harney & Sons teas, coffee and espresso drinks, and rose and green tea lattes.
Since it was founded in 2001, Lady M has expanded to more than 30 locations globally with locations in San Jose, Southern California, the East Coast, and Singapore, Hong Kong and Beijing.
