We could not have asked for a better experience working with Lake Union Cafe for our wedding! From start to finish, we found the staff, especially Lauren, to be responsive, helpful, friendly, and supportive as we got all the details arranged. The day of our wedding was absolutely perfect and we're still getting compliments on how amazing everything about the venue was, including the cake, food, ambiance, and service of the waitstaff and bartenders. Our only regret is not eating more of our dinner because the food was just that delicious! Thank you Lake Union Cafe for helping make our wedding the best ever!

We got married at Lake Union Café & Custom Bakery on 10/3/14 and it was AMAZING. Nothing went wrong, they were highly professional and extremely helpful. They did our cake as well, and it was perfect and looked EXACTLY like the picture I gave them, plus it was DELICIOUS. We did the pear/almond cake with pear/almond buttercream frosting. Lauren was very helpful and instrumental in making sure things went right. I'm so happy we found Lake Union Café to have our wedding at. I can't imagine it being anywhere else. We are still receiving compliments on the venue from friends and family, telling us the food and venue are the best they ever had/seen at a wedding before. The food was SO GOOD! We had the beef tenderloins, butternut squash ravioli, and panzanella salad, not to mention a spread of cheeses, bread, fruits......

The Lake Union Café & Bakery catered our wedding and made us an awesome cake. We heard many compliments throughout the event, but the most frequent were about the food and cake. We went with the Hibachi beef, golden potatoes, and mixed green salad for the buffet. We also had tray passed appetizers of Pistachio encrusted pork and yam crab cakes. I normally hate yams, but those crab cakes were awesome! We also had the peaches 'n cream cake with butter cream frosting. It took us a few cake tastings before we found it, but once we tried it we knew it was the one for us. The tasting events that the LUC puts on and their partnership with the Skansonia made our planning easy. I would recommend anyone looking for great food and reasonable prices (for Seattle) consider the LUC.

Thank you Lake Union Cafe for helping to make our wedding ceremony and reception perfect!! No detail was overlooked, and the staff was incredibly easy, friendly, and fun to work with! Lauren, was our LUC wedding coordinator and she made the entire process stress free! She was quick and responsive with emails which was much appreciated as this was a destination wedding for us. She helped guide us through through the cake selection, food selection, rehearsal and day of events. She had drinks waiting for us after the ceremony, food at our table when we sat down, and packed up "to-go" food for us for after the wedding. Speaking of the dinner, our family and friends are still talking about how delicious the food was.. almost three months later. I HIGHLY recommend the Lake Union Cafe to any couple searching for a beautiful and stress-free wedding location!

Holding my wedding at the Lake Union Cafe was the best decision I made, short of choosing to say yes to my now husband. The team there was courteous, helpful, and experienced. Tasia especially was able to help answer questions that I am sure were outside of her job description. It was the best day of my life so far, and I owe a lot of that to the team there. I got so many compliments on the food and the beautiful venue.

Afterwards, my husband and I said that we want to get married again, just so we can have another event there.

We chose the Lake Union Cafe for our venue because they offer the convenience of having the ceremony & reception all in one location, the vintage style was appealing, and we'd read great reports on the food.

The venue & staff exceeded all our hopes and expectations. Despite a change in staff, their new on-site coordinator picked up where the prior staff had left off without any issues whatsoever. Tasia is professional, personable, detail-oriented, flexible and just fantastic to work with. She guided us through our rehearsal, set up all of my futzy decor even better than I could have possibly imagined, and shepherded us through our big day with calm, aplomb, and grace.

The food was even better than when we'd had our tasting back in January, and was exceedingly complimented by our guests in the days after the wedding. This includes the pies we had for our dessert, which were simply delicious. Oscar, who took over after Tasia departed for the evening, was just as helpful, sending us off with boxes of food as well as pie.

I would highly recommend Lake Union Cafe. Their business is weddings and choosing this venue means you'll get professional, knowledgeable service, great food, and a lovely setting that the coordinators will willingly decorate with whatever you bring in.

Our story with Victoria and Lake Union Cafe & Bakery began with us viewing their event space as a possible venue for our wedding and reception. Unfortunately, we went with another venue, but Victoria won us over and we couldn't say no to trying them out for our cakes.

Needless to say, we loved so many of the cake options we tasted, it was hard to choose when it came to the big day! That's why we chose three (3!) different cakes :) Not only were all three fresh, tasted amazing and were exactly what we ordered, but they looked EXACTLY like what we imagined.

In addition to the amazing cakes, we used LUC&B for our wedding favors. The truffles they hand craft are simply heaven, and we will carefully be parceling out the remaining pieces to make them last as long as possible :)

Victoria and the team in the bakery are absolutely awesome and we look forward to using them for future events!

When we first decided to start planning a wedding reception, my husband and I assumed it would be a matter of picking a venue, writing a check, and waiting for everything to fall into place. After talking to a couple of venues, we quickly learned exactly how much work was involved in these things. Flowers? Menus? Set-up and clean-up? I’m sure there was more, but I pretty much stopped listening after that…and then along came Lake Union Café.

From our first meeting with Victoria, I knew we were in good hands. She assured us that we could have as much or as little control over the event as we wanted, which is exactly what we wanted to hear. We opted for the latter (i.e. little control), and so she basically took care of everything…event set-up, clean-up, decorating, flower assistance, etc. She helped us decide the menu, the layout of the event space, and was very responsive to our questions and concerns throughout the process.

We did want more control over some parts of the event, and the level of accommodation provided by Victoria and Jimmie was incredible. Really, incredible. They responded to virtually every request we made with, “No problem. We’ll make it happen.” It was very important that my mom provide the wedding cake for the event. As she was flying in from out of town, Victoria offered use of the café’s refrigerator and freezer space to store my mom’s preparation material. The day before the event, Victoria went so far as to introduce my mom to the café’s pastry chef in order to coordinate shared use of the kitchen. This flexibility is something that definitely sets the Lake Union Café apart from other venues we considered which were bound by rigid policies and procedures, and helped as achieve the wedding reception we’d envisioned.

Amazing! The Lake Union Cafe gave us everything we wanted out of a venue, and more! From the very beginning, Jimmie and Victoria were incredibly helpful and awesome! They provided loads of great advice, flexible schedules, and stellar communication (all key ingredients in wedding planning). We couldn't be happier with our experience with both the venue and the staff. A special shout out to Jimmie, who was there--every step of the way! Thank you!!! We highly recommend Lake Union Cafe for your next special occasion.

Victoria and Kathleen worked with us to help us create THE perfect wedding cake. We didn't want anything too over the top, and never felt pressured to order more than what we needed. Victoria helped us carve our ideal wedding cake from pictures off of Pinterest. They are very tech savvy, which is great since most of our correspondences were via email. I highly recommend this vendor!!!

PS. We got the cookies and cream cake which tastes just like the ice cream, except better since it doesn't melt!!

I recently had my ceremony and reception at LUC and I can honestly tell you that it was the best decision ever. Victoria and Jimmie are top quality wedding coordinators. Our wedding was pretty intricate and I had spent years collecting vintage items (hundreds of items). I dropped off all of our decorations and let Jimmie work his magic. He seriously helped create one of the most beautiful events I have ever seen. I honestly was so taken back and speechless when I walked into the room. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Jimmie and the work that he did. I have received over a dozen phone calls from family saying how wonderful and helpful he was. Victoria is the most hilarious person I know. We hit it off right away. We have laughed and laughed and laughed through this entire planning process. You will absolutely love her just as much as you will love Jimmie and the work that he does. The food was unbelievable. Voted best wedding food ever by every single guest at our wedding. Not only did it taste like it came from a 5star restaurant, it was beautiful. I'm pretty sure I said "Holy Sh*t" when I turned the corner and say how beautiful it all was displayed. Jimmie had my high maintenance groomsmen playing cards and drinking beer, before the ceremony. They were totally in good hands and we were all very well taken care of from start to finish. The bartenders were unbelievable! I have them on video having a great (yet professional) time with our wedding guests. Everyone loved them. Finally, I need to talk about our wedding cake. We had a very nontraditional wedding cake and had Kat make something that you would see on "Cake Boss." It was out of this world! Honestly, no one knew it was a cake at first....it was that real looking. It was our favorite part about our wedding. Hands down the best wedding ever because we had the best people helping us. The best!

Beautiful, professional, flexible, and responsive! We worked Jimmy, and he was amazing. He really made us feel comfortable during the whole process, and was an all star on our wedding night! The venue was glowing in the candle light during our wedding night, and Jimmy guided us through it with ease! After all the preparation that goes into that night, we were lucky enough to be able to sit back and enjoy it because of the great work of the Lake Union Cafe and its staff!

All of the staff at Lake Union Cafe was incredibly helpful, friendly, and professional from the day I first checked out the venue with one of my bridesmaids. I cannot praise and recommend them enough!! The facility itself is gorgeously stylish and didn't require much decoration, the food was delicious and enjoyed by all, the day of coordinator (Dann) was AMAZING and took care of everyone (not just the bride and groom) with humor and efficiency. They really give you a great value for your money as well, with discounts for off-peak days and seasons (like my wedding on a Friday in February).
We received numerous comments and compliments on our choice of venue by our guests, and everyone in the family and wedding party was very impressed with the staff, especially Dann. My husband and I are HUGE fans of the Lake Union Cafe and are so incredibly happy with the way our wedding turned out, thanks in large part to our choice in venue.

My husband and I looked at so many venues it made my head spin, but when we stepped inside Lake Union Café, I suspected we had found the one – and when we met with Dann and Victoria, we knew it was meant to be! I have nothing but good things to say about LUC – in my opinion, it has more personality and class than any other venue I’ve seen, the layout is perfect (especially for smaller weddings), the plated dinners are AMAZING… but what really sets LUC apart is the staff. Victoria was instrumental in our planning, the catering staff was so helpful and kind, and Dann… well… I’m in love with Dann. I’ve VERY type A, but I couldn’t have been happier to hand the reins over to him! He executed my vision and plans to perfection and made me laugh the whole time. I was able to let go and just enjoy my wedding, which was PRICELESS.

And speaking of price – there isn’t a better deal to be had. It’s not cheap, but considering what you get (food, staff, set-up/take-down, a day-of coordinator, a venue that needs very little décor, and the ability to have a stress-free day), it simply can not be beat.

My fiancé and I considered many different wedding venues where we could have the ceremony and reception. What set the Lake Union Café apart from everywhere else was that we knew we would be taken care of by Victoria and Dann after our first meeting. Some of our friends had actually worked for Dann and Victoria at the Lake Union Café many years ago, so we immediately felt comfortable with them as we reminisced about our friends upon our first look at the venue. The venue itself is gorgeous with its vintage/classic décor and view of Lake Union. Initially, we were worried that noise from Interstate 5 would be audible inside, but this was not the case at all.

Both Dann and Victoria are extremely friendly and helpful, and together, they make a wonderful duo. They both kept us smiling and laughing during all of our meetings. I cannot tell you how many times I called or emailed as the wedding approached, and they were timely and so helpful in their responses. I had many exchanges with Vitoria about a food issue with one of the guests, and she finally said something to the effect of, “Tell this person to call me so I can talk to them directly. You should take yourself out of the equation so you don’t have to worry about this. Let me take care of it.” That was exactly what I needed to hear at that moment.

Dann was very similar in his approach. He said on a few occasions that if I had any stresses on the day of the wedding to let him know, and he would take care of it. Dann handled our rehearsal, and he was so organized and thorough. Our rehearsal ran like a well oiled machine. Dann was amazing on our wedding day as well. (When you go with the Lake Union Café, you have a coordinator on your wedding day). He kept everything on schedule and running smoothly, he reminded us to eat multiple times throughout dinner (which can be difficult when so many people come by to say hello), and he kept us moving as we were greeting our guests after dinner (to ensure we would say hello to everyone). He even bustled my dress, and this was no small feat as I had a complicated bustle!

Finally, I cannot say enough good things about the food. It was amazing. At the tasting, the food was very good. Victoria had told us that the wedding food would be better because at tastings, the chefs are preparing so many different dishes in large quantities that their attention is a little more divided. She was right. The food on our wedding day was phenomenal. We got (and continue to get) so many compliments on the wedding food. Several people have said it was the best wedding food they’ve ever had. We also got our cake from the Lake Union Café bakery, and that too has generated a lot of compliments.

Our wedding here was wonderful, and we cannot thank Victoria and Dann enough!!!

I could not have been more pleased with the look, design, and taste of our cake! It was probably the best wedding cake I've ever had (of course I'm a little biased) and the variety of flavors they provide are endless. Better yet, the price was so much more reasonable than any other bakery I looked at in the Seattle area.

The Lake Union Cafe is absolutely amazing. Victoria, Dan and Laura were amazing. The staff is attentive and fun. They make sure everything runs smoothly and that the bride and groom are well taken care of all night long. I was shocked when we went to get our food and they actually dished our plates for us! We did not go without a drink in our hand all night. They make sure you are having fun and do not need anything throughout the whole night. They do not rush you through things and you don't have to take everything out that night which is a huge stress off your shoulders. I could not have asked for a more perfect night. If you have not checked out the cafe do so! You will fall in love with the decor and the staff, I promise!

I can't say enough good things about Lake Union Cafe. Victoria and Dann made getting married easy! They were super easy to work with an answered my 290469304986 questions. The venue is warm and inviting. It has a fabulous 1920's vibe to it. We held our ceremony and reception here and both were fabulous. LUC was very communicative and fairly priced. There is ample room to get ready downstairs in the seperate bridal/groom "suites." They allow you to bring your own alcohol, which saved us TONS of money. They took care of every detail, start to finish. Our wedding was flawless! Victoria helped us order apples as part of our decorations and Dann helped repair my disasterous bridal bouquet (it was heinous!) without batting an eye. I felt like I was in fabulous hands from planning until the reception. Not to mention the food was FABULOUS! We had the bbq pork shanks and mushroom ravioli, among other things and our guests RAVED!! We also used their in-house bakery for our wedding cake/cupcakes. They were delicious and totally willing to do any flavor we dreamed up! We are thrilled about our choice to use LUC for our wedding!

We just had our September 2011 wedding at Lake Union Cafe and it was everything I could ever dream of and more! Not only are Dann and Victoria tremendous help the whole time of planning (any question you have or any help you need, they are there), but day of ---- they were AMAZING! We didn't have to worry about a thing, it was stress free - they didn't miss a beat. The venue is absolutely breathtaking -- its so romantic, you really dont need to do a lot of decorating as it is so beautiful in itself, anything you add is an added bonus. The food was to die for. We have received compliment after compliment on our wedding and the food keeps coming up in coversation. I do not have a single complaint on the place, if I were to do it all over again, I wouldn't change a single thing. We love LUC and are happy to recommend it to anyone, its a hidden Gem in Seattle and I loved that we found it !!!!!

I don't know where to start. I guess first off - Victoria and Dann are seriously the most helpful people EVER!! I would email them random questions whenever they popped in to my mind, and i would get an answer within an hour!

The place itself is beautiful, just a great location for a reception. They helped with everything, and this is how great they are - when we met with them to go over the menu, they actually convinced my mother that she didn't need to order more food (which would have cost us more money) - even though it would have benefited them.

People came up to me and told me how their food was the best wedding food that they've had - and i can vouch for that as they packed up some food for us to bring to the hotel with us when we left!! And seriously, Dann took care of us the day of the wedding - he was grabbing us drinks and making sure we were okay!

I Love them, love them, love them.

Lake Union Cafe provided the most beautiful looking and best tasting cake ever! Their customer service is excellent! And the price was more than reasonable. I would never go anywhere else for a wedding cake. I am the mother of the bride and attended the cake tasting with my daughter.

I couldn't have asked for a better day from Lake Union Cafe. The venue was so beautiful and it fit my wedding to a tee. Dann and Victoria were so great to have, willing to take on all the little details. I felt completely comfortable knowing they were setting things up and telling me where to be during the ceremony and the reception. Victoria is very organized, friendly, and she'll tell you exactly what you need to know about each detail you've been rolling over in your head for the last year. My wedding was perfect because of them.

We were so happy with Lake Union Cafe, both as a venue site, and as a caterer. Several of our guests commented that our food was the best wedding food they had ever had! We loved how helpful both Dan and Victoria were, before the wedding, and during. I believe that Dan usually runs most of the weddings on the actual wedding day, but we had Victoria for ours, and she did an amazing job! She set up the room beautifully for us, and was great at coordinating the whole evening so we could just enjoy it. Highly recommended!!!
