It was wonderful to share the Cake Bake experience with our friends! It was no surprise that they were utterly charmed by the ambiance and aesthetic of the Carmel location. The cuisine did not disappoint either, consistent quality and freshness with exceptional presentation and service. I think we have three new fans of CB who will share with their friends and families.

The space is so dreamy! I love visiting either location!
We sat in the bar area, and the service was great. I ordered the quiche, and it was divine as always!
For dessert I ordered a Marie Antoinette, so beautiful! They’re usually absolutely scrumptious, full of delicious jam and pastry cream. But this time, no joke, it had probably a half teaspoon of pastry cream, and maybe a teaspoon of jam. It was mostly whipped cream. I’m sorry to say the Marie Antoinette was a disappointment this time. Otherwise it was a great experience as always.

Beautiful atmosphere; diverse, interesting menu; excellent service! Everything we ordered was very good. The take-out boxes were over the top! I wanted just plain coffee with my cake, but I would have had to pay $7 for a pour over. I felt that was overpriced. It’s a perfect place for any kind of celebration!

To celebrate a special luncheon with a special person, this is the place to go. Decor and food were excellent. There was no pressure to hurry through your meal, which was greatly appreciated.

The most difficult part of this visit was trying to decide which of the excellent desserts to enjoy.

Well worth the experience for the cake. Food was ok. Large portions for the price. Food and drinks are very expensive. Booked in advance and sat next to kitchen. Was quite loud. Service was very slow and it wasn’t very busy.

I had the turkey sandwich and it was dry and un-flavorful … the chocolate cake was great though.
