As soon as I sampled their wedding cakes I knew I had found a cake up to my Austrian standards!! I had trouble deciding on the best flavors. We had one layer of vanilla cake with a lemon raspberry filling, and two layers of chocolate cake with an orange chocolate truffle ganache filling. It was amazing! I made sure to not eat too much dinner so I could have a piece of each kind of cake! Was I the first bride to have such priorities? It also looked adorable. It was ocean themed with house made white chocolate seashells on it. Not a crumb nor seashell was left!

Easiest vendor I worked with for my wedding. Gave them a picture of an idea and they did an amazing job using the idea but creating their own design. The cake tasted great! All of the guests really liked the light lemon flavor with raspberry. Their pricing was fair and they delivered on time with no issues.

Friends in Monterey told us that Parker Lusseau was the best bakery in town and I'm glad they did! We decided on the spot when we did a cake tasting. They are the real deal! and, they have very unique cake options. Our cake was absolutely delicious (I had seconds) and also simply gorgeous. I loved the idea of having local fresh strawberries since they would be in season. So, we decided to do half strawberries w/ fresh cream, and the other half of the cake was passion fruit filling with raspberries. We chose a basic buttercream frosting ( i hate fondant) and they do a beautiful damask type pattern in the buttercream, which was very elegant and a perfect backdrop for fresh flowers. I appreciated their suggestion that we do a 3 tier cake, and then sheetcake to serve our 150 guests, which made the cake much more affordable. I can't wait to eat our top layer for our anniversary! The one *minor* annoyance is that they only take checks. But, this isn't that uncommon in Monterey surprisingly! Thank you Parker Lusseau for our amazing cake!!

I really like the real French macaroons from this place and the coffee is OK.

However, I tried to order a wedding cake from them and I called no less than 7 times. They told me to call back and talk to the owner, so I kept calling. When I finally did get the owner, he told me to call back in 3 weeks. The cake was good, but not worth this effort. If you have ever planned a wedding, then you know that booking things in a timely fashion is very important. I did NOT end up booking with them due to neglect. They lost out on a huge cake order.

Delicious desserts made from real ingredients. I love being in either of their bakeries on Hartnell or Munras in Monterey. Anne is great to work with and Yan (sp?) is actually French . They have a perfect thing going. :)

The cake was fantastic- it was an 8 inch two tiered beautifully textured ivory buttercream with strawberry vanilla bottom layer and chocolate raspberry top layer. Delicious. Still eating it actually! My only complaint is the outer buttercream frosting is a bit too thick and too strange to eat.... But I think this is rather typical of a decorative frosting (thinking fondant...)

We also had 50 macaroons and 50 chocolate petit-fours and little chocolate cups with berries. I never got to try any of these as they disappeared within moments! It was so cool to watch Casey's friends eat macaroons for the first time and be absolutely enthralled. The salted caramel one seemed to be a fav. Everyone was happy even the gluten free folks.

Thank you to Parker-Lusseau for helping make our wedding a success!

I recently had Parker-Lusseau Bakery make my wedding cake. They made both a chocolate and a white cake that were AMAZING! People are still talking about how much they liked the cake. They were great to work with and very professional! Very impressed!!

Im not sure which bakery everyone else was talking about in the reviews section, but after my experience with Parker-Lusseau im sure that they must be confused with some other bakery. I have never been treated with such disrepect by someone who considers themselves "professionals". My fiance is in the military and because of this our wedding was very short notice. After trying to contact this bakery for more than two weeks, they finally emailed me back. I explained my situation to them and they were very short tempered and rude for lack of a better word. But my wedding was in less than two weeks so i decided to work with them because ive heard nothing but good things. After two emails, They requested my phone number so they could contact me with questions i had about my cake. Yann Lusseau was the man i spoke with, he seemed friendly at first. But he kept insisting that my cake would have to be brown in color to get the design i wanted. I tried explaining to him that brown would not go well with my color sceme to which he responded, "i have been making cakes for 18 years, i think i know what would be best." i then asked him if i could take a night to think about it and maybe try to find another cake design although my heart was set on the one we had discussed. He agreed.
Later that night, i checked my inbox to find a nasty email from Yann explaining that i would not be able to find anywhere to make a cake as good as i would at their bakery, and that if i did i would "pay the price". He also stated that they have wasted a lot of time "dealing with me" and that i wanted a cake that does not exist, and that since i was ignoring his "expertise" they would "NOT" be making my cake, and would take the time wasted on dealing with my demands as a loss. I would NOT reccomend Parker-Luesseau to anyone. Im sure the cakes taste good and everything. But its not worth it to me to have to deal with such unprofessional people.

We ordered 3 different small cakes from the bakery - all three were absolutely delicious! We loved the cakes!! The groom's parents ordered the cakes and worked with the bakery since they were geographically much closer to Monterey, and they loved the bakery and the bakery's staff.

Our cake was delicious! We had a small cake made for us after our beach wedding in Carmel. It was easy to order, a bit of a mixup with the pickup- but easily resolved, and the cake was absolutely delicious and beautiful. We would definitely use them again!
