1 South: Monterey, Parker-Lusseau Pastries

Parker-Lusseau Pastries  731 Munras Ave., (831) 643-0300.  W-Sat 7-4:30; $$.  No cards.  Here at the bakery’s main location is where everything from French desserts to artisan chocolates to wedding cakes are prepared.  The almond croissant and hot chocolate are particularly delicious at breakfast, and soup, sandwiches, and quiche are options at lunch. 
    This branch of the popular bakery (539 Hartnell St., downtown, (831) 641-9188.  M-F 7-5:30, Sat 7:30-4.) is situated within the carefully restored two-story Fremont Adobe, which some believe was once the headquarters of John C. Fremont.  Tiny tables are available inside as well as outside on a small porch and in an adjacent garden.
