Pâtisserie BoutiQue


Back to desserts, Patisserie Boutique is no stranger to locals. A quaint cafe in Ipoh serving some of the best cakes and pancakes, reservations and walk-ins are available. Though, we would strongly recommend reservations for cakes as they sell out pretty fast. Other cafe items such as pastas and poultry are available as well.
