So professional and tasteful!
We had our wedding reception at the DCA Meadowlands, where we found Palmer's through the venue. I can't say enough how perfectly they made everything great and stress-free for us. Their service is so professional and the food was so delicious. First things first, I would like to give a special thanks to Shannon for her great help and patience while I was bombarding her with billions of questions. She was so hands-on and always so nice and helpful to us. Once we contacted Palmer's, Shannon invited us for a tasting. Before going for the tasting, we were also in contact with some other caterers as well, but once we met with Shannon and Megan, the owner, we've been certain about working with Palmer's. What we really like at most about Palmer's is that they do listen to you for what you request for. They first try to figure out what you expect, what you want or not, and they respond to what you exactly ask for. Our guests loved the food. I noticed some guests going for their second round in the buffet.Sent on 07/10/2019
Palmer's was one of the best decisions my husband and I have ever made for our wedding. Thanks so much again to Palmer's for making our wedding night so smooth and pleasant from the setup through the clean-up, and what we totally hoped for.

Palmer’s Bakery Wedding Cake
I was unsure what I wanted, but with Palmers guidance, I truly had the wedding cake of my dreams! Melissa and her staff are wonderful to work with and very responsive to any and all requests. Picking the cake was the easiest part of wedding planning! Will absolutely be going to Palmers for any special occasion cake in the future. Also, friends and family still talk about how delicious it was, and our wedding was three months ago!Sent on 12/07/2018

We were tipped off to Palmer's by our stationer, and we are so happy she gave us this recommendation to try Palmer's for our wedding cake. We wanted carrot cake with cream cheese filling and all of the local bakeries we tried did not meet our standards. Palmer's knocked it out of the park. First, the cake was beautiful, and they decorated the cake exactly as we requested with flowers from their florist which helped to simplify things. Second, the cake tasted incredible. All of our guests were raving about how incredible the cake tasted. It was so moist and the cream cheese filling was delicious! We are thrilled to have found Palmer's and will be certainly making this our new place for cakes for all occasions!Sent on 08/22/2018
