Ever wondered what luxury handbags taste like? Probably not.

But that didn’t stop Maxime Frédéric, an award-winning pastry chef, from crafting exquisite desserts inspired by Louis Vuitton.

Handcrafted chocolates, patisseries and desserts are meticulously crafted with premium ingredients, such as hazelnuts harvested from Frédéric’s own farm, adorn with the iconic LV monogram. These exquisite creations were first seen in the Louis Vuitton Café in Paris in December 2022.

After a short 1.5 years, their newest venture — Le Chocolat Maxime Frédéric chocolaterie — is set to open in Singapore on 14 February 2024 at the Louis Vuitton Island Store in Marina Bay Sands, just in time for Valentine’s Day. This marks the cafe’s first overseas outlet outside of France.

What to expect at the Louis Vuitton cafe in Singapore?

While the exact offerings of the chocolaterie are yet to be unveiled, you can expect the menu to be chocolate-centric.
