About Le Cafe Confectionery & Pastry
‘Age like a fine wine’ is the best word that can describe Le Cafe Confectionery & Pastry.

The long journey started in 1949, where they opened an eating house that served Chinese food (tze char), cakes, pastries, and drinks in David Elias Building.
As time went by, in 1975, the eating house started to operate as a cafe with focus on Buttercream Cakes, Cream Puffs, Swiss Roll, Apple Strudel, Chicken Pies, Cheese Sticks etc. In the 1990s, they once again changed their focus into takeaway shop. This time is one of the important moments as they introduced “Golf Ball” Pineapple Tarts which became one of the best sellers until now. Their journey in giving the best pastry is still continuing until now through online shop as their newest strategy to sell these adorable pastries.
