Goodness! – This is a great spot when the items are fresh and just out the oven.. The staff is always friendly and accommodating and the pastries are to die for! I always bring my nephew here for cookies and cupcakes and he never wants to leave... Keep up the good work!
Rude on the phone. – I saw their fabulous web site, and I was impressed, so I decided to call. I couldn't understand what the gentlemen said on the phone, so I asked just to confirm that I was dialing the correct number if it was Marie's and he curtly replied "yeah!" I then asked their what their hours were, and he quickly said they closed at 4. It was 5:30 p.m. when I called, and asked if I could place an order, and he said I would have to call the next day. If you are closed, you probably shouldn't answer the phone, especially if you are in a bad mood and plan on being rude to an unsuspecting customer. This is reason enough for me to me to hire another bakery. There are too many in Las Vegas competing for business to deal with that. Forget it.
Disappointing Bakery – I am getting married in Las Vegas at the end of July and have pretty much organised 99% of my wedding online. I thought the wedding cake would be as easy as the rest. I found a lovely cake on Maries Gourmet Website and emailed them asking for a quote. I actually ended up emailing them 3 times over a space of 1 week but to this day have still not had a response from them. I find this extremely disappointing as it was a lovely cake. Companies should not put down an email address as a contact if they have no intention of responding to emails. I will now be switching to Freed's Bakery who have been brilliant at getting back to me. I am sure Maries Gourmet Bakery may be brilliant if you can phone or walk into their shop but in terms of emails they are a disaster!
The restaurant where my reception is being held actually reccommended this bakery!
If you are trying to organise a wedding from overseas I don't reccommend you use Maries Gourmet Bakery.
Confident – I should have written 3 years ago when I first used Marie's. I had 3 weeks to plan a wedding and had lived in Vegas only 2 years. No clue who to use. Suggestions came in and Vegas wedding books were perused. Narrowing it down, I made 4 appointments with bakeries for tasting. Then, while at David's Bridal on Sahara I noticed a few doors down, Marie's. Walked in and made an appointment.
Marie was above par with presentation, selections and understanding of what is done. My daughter wanted the words of a song written on her cake - done; she wanted separated cakes with different fillings - done; she wanted real flowers - done. Who can pick up the cake? Marie delivered to the house. Save the top for the couple to eat on their first anniversary? No, Marie bakes one special - just call.
That same year we celebrated a 60th birthday. Whom did I call? That's right. She remembered my husband at the tasting and asked about other habits. She made a cake that spoke of him perfectly, including 2 chocolate cigars we still have in the refrigerator.
Two years ago, we celebrated a 25th and 90th birthday together. Again, Marie's bakery was called. My dad was a chef and railroad worker. I asked the bakery to work their magic. You had to see the pots, pan and spatula placed in one area of the cake and a train with railroad tracks along the cake depicting his life. He could not believe it. My daughter is a south park fan. That too was delightful.
So, today a cake for a shower is needed and I will not hesitate to call Marie's. Sure, you can find less expensive cakes, even Cosco! But, for service, professionalism, design, taste and care, I would recommend this company without fear. I see no reason to change. Marie is OK in my book!
Beautiful, creative and delicious cakes and exceptional customer service – Although I grew up in Las Vegas I no longer live there, so when I was asked to order a cake for my good friend's 50th birthday party I had to go on the internet to determine which bakery to use. I really like Marie's web site there were many cakes to choose from and a variety of flavors. I ordered the cake and asked for a few changes from the picture on the web and asked them to make it an "asian" theme without being very specific. The woman I ordered from was extremely nice and even offered to open the bakery briefly on Sunday to accomodate my party time which I found amazing! Needless to say, I worried a bit about whether I should have given more specific decorating instructions and what would happen if no one showed up on Sunday. My worries were for nothing, not only were they there waiting for me, they had fresh coffee waiting as well. My cake was absolutely gorgeous and perfectly decorated and everyone at the party said it was one of the best they had ever tasted. I will order every special occasion cake I can from them in the future and anyone reading this should as well!
awsome wedding cake – My fiance wanted a Martha Stewart wedding cake(from a pic from her web site)....(groan). We had the reception dinner at Bellagio, but they wanted an astronomical price for this specific cake, so we shopped around. We found a few local bakeries in Las Vegas who did nice wedding cakes, but Marie's stood out in presentation and quality. The chef of the bakery was a teacher at the Culinary Institute of America, which is one of the top cooking schools in the us. The chef, Todd, talked us through why this cake was difficult to do, and how the pricing went accordingly. It did fall slightly outside our budget, but the end result was definitely worth it. He duplicated the same cake design, and the flavors we picked tasted just as good as the ones we picked in the tasting....Mango mousse and chocolate mousse with hazelnut crunch. And this was 40% less than what Bellagio was charging for the same cake!!!! Hats off to Chef Todd! We got many compliments on the look and taste of our wedding cake. I will send photos if i can!
THIS BAKERY IS TERRIBLE AND NOT WORTH THE MONEY!!! – I will make this short. Their cakes are dry and over priced. The owner is absolutely rude and full of himself. Don't waste your time or money at this place.
Cute Bakery – Although I have not personally ordered a cake here, I have many friends who have...and have been very pleased. I work in this area so I stop by here often for lunch. Great salads, soups and sanwiches to choose from. And everyone here is very freindly. They do have delicious cookies and pastries available for sale individually to satisfy any sweet craving!
BRIDES BEWARE! This is not the bakery for you. – BRIDES BEWARE!! They gave me all sorts of stress by trying to charge me more than my contracted price just a week before my wedding and I had to scramble to find a new bakery. They make you think they are your friend and your dream come true. This bakery is NOTHING but a COMPLETE NIGHTMARE! Avoid at all costs, unless you like having stress and nervous breakdowns days before your wedding. Your fiance might just leave you.
Best Pastries! – I picked up some pastries from this bakery and let me tell you...they were all delicious! They have a wide variety of pastries, sweets, muffins, cookies and other unique offerings. I wasn't able to stay for lunch, but I have heard they have a some great sandwiches. They also create beautiful cakes for weddings and birthday parties. I will definitely be back soon!!
