1. The Peninsula Boutique

Although the star of the store is the famous King Oscar Cake – an almond-coated wafer cake topped with fresh strawberries – I truly love the Boutique’s freshly baked breads,pastries, especially chocolate croissant, signature hand-made chocolates and of course their ultimate home made ice cream, the Pen Pals available at The Lobby . Indeed, they are DIVINE!
