We are so excited about our upcoming wedding in 2018. I originally came in to get more information about their cakes not realizing they were a private venue as well! After coming in & meeting Tasia I was hooked! Not only did I get the information on the cakes like I originally wanted, she also offer a tour & was respectful of my time. I then went home & was so excited to come back & share the information with my future husband. We did the cake tasting in our home with our 7 year old who loved helping. We decided to come back & do another tour & ask more questions. It was very easy to schedule, we were able to get in that weekend easily enough! Tasia was AMAZING! She was so knowledgeable & easy to talk with. I had TONS of questions & she patient & able to answer them all. THANK YOU we can't wait to celebrate our big day!

Words will never be able to fully describe how wonderful it was to have Lake Union Cafe as our wedding & reception venue! The entire staff made the planning process an absolute breeze! We loved how we could book the flowers, linens, cake, food and alcohol all through the venue and also have a day of coordinator included! My husband and I are both full time working professionals and have minimal time to plan. LUC took the time at each meeting to make sure we would get exactly what we want. We loved how easy it was to book a band as well! The free parking for our guests was fantastic as well as the candle package we booked to make our evening winter wedding stunning! All of our guests raved about the delicous food and cake and LOVED the passed appetizers during the cocktail hour. For most of our guests they said it was the best wedding they have been to due to the beauty of it but also the intimate venue space and quality within every element!!! If you are searching for a wedding venue PLEASE do yourself a favor and give LUC a visit!

I love this venue! Victoria and Jimmie are fabulous and every event I film there is flawless! I would highly recommend all soon-to-be-wed couples check out this venue! Also- if you're looking for an amazing cake that will WOW your guests without the high price tag these guys are it! I can't believe how great their prices are for the quality and detail in each of their cakes. My mouth is watering just thinking about them! Yum!

Lake Union Cafe & Custom Bakery Rocks! The Bakery does a majority of our brides wedding cakes and desserts! She does awesome individual cheese cakes, which you can make into a cheesecake bar with 3 different toppings! SOOOOO GOOD!
