While "bread" is still just a slang term for “money,” common parlance foreshadows an ensuing exchange in loaves, croissants, and crostinis should the dollar collapse. Ensure future financial security with today's Groupon: for $6, you get $12 worth of French bakery bites and drinks at La Baguette's Old Colorado City location.
La Baguette serves up a full menu of classic café fare but specializes in the total sensory-immersion experience of smelling, seeing, tasting, touching, and singing love songs to freshly baked breads and pastries. Straight-from-the-oven artisan bites include whole-wheat walnut loaves ($3.55), hearty six-grain rolls ($1.25), rye bread ($2.90 for a small loaf), pecan-raisin rolls ($0.95), fruit-filled croissants ($2.50), and ficelles ($1.60 each), all of which are expertly trained in the art of soaking up savory slurps of French-onion soup from the café ($5.75). After a warm summer evening spent strolling the streets, indulge in a serving of delightfully garlicky escargot served with soft French bread on the side ($7.75) or a plate of butternut-squash ravioli with sage, tomato, basil sauce, and a fresh-baked roll ($7.95). A variety of gourmet meats and cheeses can be caught cozily cradled in the flakey confines of homemade croissants and baguettes in the form of delicious sandwiches, all served with a side of seasonal fruit ($5.75–$6.85). Wash down your yummies with a classic café latte ($3.15), espresso ($1.75), or glass of fine French wine (from $3.95/glass).
The family-owned bread business uses only high-quality and natural ingredients to prepare its French-inspired foods, accommodating common food allergies and phobias of low quality, unnatural, and icky. Pick up a couple loaves of bread to complement a meal at home, or take the night off and enjoy a bite at a table within La Baguette's humble bakery abode.
- Unbelievable onion soup and an omelet, followed by a fresh, chocolate-filled croissant that revealed to me that indeed you can buy happiness. – Dimitri, Urbanspoon
- I haven't had a baguette sandwich like that since my last trip to France! Simple fare, but gooood. The onion soup was to die for. Cute inside and on the terrasse, too. – hcvoyageuse, TripAdvisor
