Le Matin Patisserie At ION Orchard To Close On 29 Feb After A Year

Feb 23, 2024

Popular upmarket patisserie, Le Matin Patisserie is closing its flagship outlet at ION Orchard after opening for just a year.

Helmed by Chef Mohamed Al-Matin who has previously worked at Noma, Restaurant Andre, Black Star Pastry, Zumbo, Le Matin Patisserie first started as an online pastry shop during Covid and they opened several pop-ups over the years before finding their permanent home at ION Orchard in 2023.

Le Matin Patisserie has just announced on its Instagram account that their last day of operation at ION Orchard basement 2 will be on 29 Feb 2024.

There was great fanfare when Le Matin Patisserie opened at ION Orchard and there was a constant queue with long waiting time last year.

Apart from their famous pastries and cakes, Le Matin Patisserie offers a small selection of brunch dishes and deserts at their cafe.

Our top picks are their Black Truffle Scrambled Eggs Croissant and Seafood Pot Pie. The former is a gorgeous creation which features buttery scrambled eggs sandwiched between a round croissant burger, and topped with shaved black truffles; while the latter is a puff pastry filled with a variety of seafood including snapper, salmon belly, scallops, prawns, and trout roe.

The prices of the offerings are rather steep for a cafe and customers have to fork out S$24-34 for a brunch dish while the desserts are priced around S$20. Other than the high rental at ION Orchard, this is probably the main reason that contributed to the decline and eventual closure of the brand.

Le Matin Patisserie is under the Benjamin Barker Group who is also behind The Assembly Ground Cafe at Cineleisure Orchard and it remains unclear if another Benjamin Barker-owned cafe will open at the same space

We are also unsure if Chef Matin plans to reopen Le Matin Patisserie at another location, but we will keep you updated once we hear any news.
