Just dropped a week's pay on a cashmere hot-water-bottle cozy at Malo, or five grand on a pair of two-tone sharkskin-and-cordovan hiking boots at Silvano Lattanzi? Prolong the spendthrift's high with a layover at Lady M, a dessert "salon" where the exquisite cakes-the gâteau au chocolat is devastatingly good-are showcased like precious jewels, and Moët & Chandon comes by the glass and Dom Pérignon by the bottle. Price-is-no-object: Limoges china, German stemware, and elaborate amaryllis arrangements will put you on snoot alert, but in actuality the service couldn't be nicer or more efficient. Grab a tiny café table—there are only eight—and recharge with French ham and Jarlsberg on a crusty baguette or a goat-cheese salad, then hit the pastry display case and make what might be your toughest decision of the day. Luckily, one size fits all.Delivery

Lady M’s signature wedding cake is a light-as-air pile of crêpes sandwiched between layers of cream custard with a hint of cherry liqueur and a caramelized top, garnished with real flowers ($15–$17 per serving).
