Personal picks include the Matcha French Toast ($18), a scrumptious and eggy matcha-infused French toast—with some delicious crisp edges—enjoyed with with vanilla Chantilly and maple syrup, and the Matcha Pop ($9.50).
The milk chocolate-roasted almond 'popsicle' shell breaks nicely to reveal a fine matcha cake interior with white chocolate and matcha ganache.
If you like your beverages over-the-top, go straight for the Instagram-ready Matcha Latte ($22), served with a dramatic, pillowy cotton candy cloud, Matcha Financier, Matcha Orange Almond Tuile and Yucha chocolate of matcha and yuzu ganache with a hint of kirsh.
For more discreet and dainty, I'd recommend the elegant Matcha Strawberry Shortcake ($9 slice, $55 whole)—a 'matcha-fied' version of Antoinette's popular and signature cake—and the Matcha Yuzu Lychee Iced Tea ($12.50) of thick yet refreshing iced matcha tea given zest with hints of yuzu and fresh lychee.
