In-house/sit-down sales only


Businesses and organizations participating in HER Helmet Thursdays help HER / Mother Earth by providing discounts on Thursdays for people who bike. A long-term project with no scheduled end-date, HER Helmet Thursdays was launched in 2009 in Monterey County, California as a public service. NOTE: When participating businesses and organizations sign up, they are provided a staff reference sheet. Many have frequent staff changes. Just in case a staff person on duty isn't familiar with this long-term project, it may be helpful to have the listing for that location pulled up on your mobile phone screen (or print a copy of their listing to take along), so you're prepared to kindly show their listing.
Before claiming discount, refer to FAQs and project details, including date restrictions, in "LISTINGS, Map, How to Get the Discounts, and FAQs about HER Helmet Thursdays" at

Kindly note that the HER Helmet Thursdays discount is for in-house/sit-down food and beverage service only (not applicable on cake orders and other take-out).

Besides yummy treats, Parker-Lusseau features soup, salad, quiche, and sandwiches too! A delightful shop where you can sit and savor the offerings.

Have children along? There's room for children to stretch their legs, do some jumping jacks or what-have-you on the plaza patio directly in front of Parker-Lusseau while parents linger over coffee and pastries, keeping an eye on them through the big picture window.

Bike Tips:

Located in Cypress Plaza in downtown Monterey. This plaza is across from the historic Casa Munras hotel, about a block and a half from the Monterey-Salinas Transit downtown Monterey bus plaza (bike-and-ride option). This is about four blocks from the coastal bike path.

Direx tip: From the bike path at Wharf #2, cross Del Monte Avenue and take Figueroa (you'll see Lopez Taqueria on the corner) and continue up Figueroa until it deads end; that is Church Street.

Make a right on Church and go another block to Abrego.

Make a left on Abrego. Go straight up Abrego; you'll cross Fremont (there's a traffic signal there), and immediately after the gas station, on your right-hand side, is the Cypress Plaza.

Turn right into the plaza. As you face the plaza entrances, Parker-Lusseau is toward the left.

Add'l direx note: Munras becomes Abrego at Eldorado; and Abrego becomes Washington at Pearl. If you're confused about our streets, it's not you, it's Old Monterey! There's talk of renaming some of those streets for that reason;time will tell.
