Lorraine's is a smooth and quiet engine. The shopfront is a tenth shop and nine tenths open kitchen. All manner of anything sweet, besides most notably macarons, appear on the menu. Cakes, tarts, even marshmellows, brownies composed of seasonal fruits, you name it, take centre stage here all on display although there are other pastries that make guest appearances on other days.
|Frangipane Tart 6.5 per slice|
|Mascarpone Cake 8 per slice|
|Rhubarb Pie 8|
|Brownie 5 per slice|
|Cheesecake 9 per slice|
Oh, woe is me. The famous date tart wasn't in on the 2 days I went there. It just really beckons you to arrive in another day or at least call them. Lorraine is well respected in the dessert world and is certainly a great addition to the Merivale family. If you're after a sweet something that's groundbreaking and progressive, Lorraine's isn't your place. However, if you want sweet classic pastries and cakes made with a lot of love and experience, particularly a smashing cheesecake, Lorraine's is definitely it.
