Stay away. I went to Lamb's Market with high hopes. Someone had recommend them to me and said they did a great job for their wedding. Well that was good for them..The bakery did a great job on the cake. The only problem with them was the filling on the bottom was wrong. Everything else was perfect and delicious. When I called the bakery they were very nice and issued a refund for that. Then I called the florist. I had worked with Lynette twice in person and three times over the phone. She made me feel very reassured and excited about the flowers. The day of the wedding the florist department dropped the ball on the most important thing my bouquet/cake topper. I had sent two emails with pictures of what I wanted to Lynette. She said she received them and could easily do that. They didn't follow the picture AT ALL so three hours before I got married I called after the photographer, my mom, and friends saying how bad it looked. Nobody could even send me a different one. My mom had called the day after and Lynette apologized and said a different girl had done it, and for my mom to come in. We got busy and 3 weeks went by so my mom asked me to call in. When I called Lynette denied anything being wrong even after admitting it to my mom. Then I asked to speak to the manager in hopes of a return because of how completely wrong it was. Mark said nothing was done wrong and told me I was wrong. My husband could hear the man raising his voice over the phone at me. He said he would only do a partial refund and that it came out fine. After spending about $200 on something that was messed up I called the store manager and spoke to him. I told him I had pictures of what I showed and the day of. He refunded me fully and was very nice. I had amazing vendors for my wedding and Lambs was the only one I regret working with.

On several recommendations by locals, we used Lamb's Thriftway bakery for our wedding cake. The cake was relatively low on our list of priorities for the reception since the venue provided yummy desserts, but we were pleasantly surprised we got a very good looking and tasting cake for about $2.50 per serving. The ceremony was outdoors while the reception was indoors in late May so we wanted to bring the garden theme of the wedding inside so fresh, fruity and light was in order.

The cake was a simple round 2 tier (4 layer) with a ribbon shaped butter cream icing. We selected lemon with marionberry filling for one tier and banana with bavarian cream for the other. Luckily we had leftovers so was able to taste both flavors -- moist, flavorful, delicious. Everyone raved about how good the cake was.

Lamb's made my pink champagne wedding cake and it was the best cake I've ever had! People at the reception kept asking me what kind it was because it was so good and unique. They also brought appetizers to our reception as well and were so easy to work with. Our wedding planner was right - their cakes are to die for!

We wanted a wedding cake that tasted great but didn't break the bank and Lamb's fit the bill perfectly. They gave us so many samples and it was so easy to choose and order the cake that we wanted. We chose their custard filling with a ribbon cake and it was so moist and tasted fantastic. Plus, their delivery came without a hassle, so it was one less thing to stress about on the day of. So grateful to have worked with Lamb's!!

Lamb's took care of our cake and flowers. I was very pressed with both the flowers and cake. Everything turned out the way I had envisioned it. Actually, the exceeded what I expected and made my husband and I so very happy.
If you have never tried their cake, you should. Their talent for making a tasty cake and an exceptionally beautiful cake is impressive. I will continue to go back to Lamb's Thrift way for anything I will need in the future.

Although the cake tasted great and looked amazing our delivery person was late bringing the cake to the venue. We had to call and ask what happened to the cake and they said that the delivery person had not left yet.

I would still however, recommend them since the cake turned out wonderful! I'd suggest calling on the day to make sure they arrive on time.

Beautiful fresh flowers were delivered. The floral department is wonderful to work with.

In my opinion, the Lamb's Thriftway bakery is the premier place to get your wedding cake. I have purchased three wedding cakes from them for my daughters' weddings and they were extraordinary. The cake is absolutely delicious and they can create any style you want. We had some really unusual themes and they created the cakes just as we pictured them. They are cake geniuses!

Don't spend over $400 on a wedding cake from the fancy big town bakery.

We found wonderful review of Lam'bs online. So, we had our taste test and narrowed down to our favorite flavors. They are all so tasty. We looked at sample books of designs and colors. We selected a white 3 layer round cake with scalloped designs on the top and bottom layers in ivory, with the middle having a scroll design also in ivory. Our top tier was chocolate with chocolate mousse, the middle was almond poppyseed with raspberry filling, and the bottom was red velvet with cream cheese.

All of our guests raved about how fluffy the cake was and how awesome it tasted. Not to mention that it was extremely beautiful. When I told them that it was from a bakery at a grocery store they couldn't believe it.

There are more important items to spend your money on when paying for a wedding, ie. photo/video, etc. So save some dough and choose Lamb's for your beautiful and delicious wedding cake :) You won't be disappointed!

Catering: I was reluctant to use a grocery store for the hors d'ourvres reception I had at my wedding. However, Lamb's Garden Home Thriftway blew me away!
I worked with Stephanie and she knew her stuff! I told her how many guests we were having, what kind of food we were looking for and she did the rest. She made recommendations on what type of food to have, knew her quantities, and even recommended items that we may be forgetting (like drinks). The prices were very reasonable and the presentation was superb!
I went to pick up some breakfast trays for the bridal party the day before the wedding and even those were artfully arranged! They had an equal mix of healthy and pastry options on trays wrapped in cellophane, tied with gorgeous ribbon with separate serving utensils clipped to each tray. Stephanie even helped me take the trays to my car and load them.
You can tell that she cares about quality and having satisfied customers. And my guests raved about how good the food was!
In addition, we hired two of her servers to staff the food tables at the reception. They were incredibly polite and helpful! They cut and served our cake and stuck around to help us clean up. They brought to go containers to package up leftovers and were an invaluable part of helping us get out of the facility on time.

Cake: I tasted cakes at JaCiva's, Beaverton Bakery and Lamb's and Lamb's won out. The cake was lighter and they had more variety and were open to my design ideas. I told them I wanted Polish flowers on my cake (cornflowers, poppies and wheat shafts). They didn't balk at my ideas, but welcomed them. At the last minute, I asked them if they could put a bird's nest at the top to accommodate our cake topper and they were able to add it. The cake looked like a work of art! Everyone oohed and awwed over it. I couldn't be happier! Plus, you don't have to keep your top layer in the freezer for a year. They give you a free anniversary mini cake!
