Speaking to Mothership, Chiam said that she used to work at Restaurant Joel Robuchon for a year, until their closure.

Li, on the other hand, had gathered six months of experience at Les Amis before heading to France for a month, where she sought inspiration for her craft.

In 2018, the duo came together to launch their brand online.

More than a year later, Chiam and Li have turned Pâtisserie CLÉ into a brick-and-mortar concept.

Popular creations from them are the Noisette (a dark chocolate cake with hazelnut praline) and Orh Blanc Tart (a fusion of the French Mont Blanc dessert and orh nee, or yam).

Otherwise, the menu is made up of regular items and seasonal offerings.
