We found this cottage filled with pastries and other yummies while trying to find the Massage Envy in Monterey.
Parker-Lusseau has multiple locations around the Monterey area, unfortunately, I only had time to visit one. This place was charming. I could have sat outside sipping my delicious soy chai latte for hours. Doesn’t this picture say…”Stay a while. You’ll leave a different, more wonderful person…”
Their porch and outdoor seating is perfect for lounging on lazy Sundays. Read a book by yourself, or catch up with close friends over chocolate croissants and lattes. Don’t take a first date, if it doesn’t work out, you don’t want some jerk ruining this place for you.
Here for breakfast or brunch? You must try this Portabella Tartine. Delicious Portabella Mushrooms and sundried tomatoes draped across delicious toast with warm, melted cheese. I need to experiment with different breads and figure out how to recreate this at home. Add that to my to-do list.
When you’ve finished your breakfast, try one, or all, of their little pastries. I tried a few during my visit at Parker-Lusseau. My favorite was this baked almond cream tart with fresh strawberries and raspberries. I admit I was reluctant to share. But I had to put down my fork to enjoy this lovely chai latte. Don’t worry…I still kept a close eye on my tart.
While you’re visiting Parker-Lusseau, don’t miss out on their Tiramisu. It’s delightful. Light marscopone cream, and yummy espresso and rum soaked lady fingers. Classic. Don’t you wish you were that fork?
