Review: La Baguette French Bakery & Cafe - Colorado Springs, Colorado
On Saturday, M and I decided to explore Old Colorado Springs. We were pleasantly surprised to find a ton of shops, restaurants, and ton of people walking around, enjoying theirs days. It was kind of late and we didn't eat breakfast before we left, so luckily we found this local hot spot - La Baguette French Bakery & Cafe. Check out the beautiful Croissant Chicken sandwich above. We sat outside and shared our sandwich, which was accompanied by some fresh fruit. The croissant was huge, fresh, flaky, and buttery. The generous portion of chicken salad was very flavorful, and didn't have all of the fru-fru stuff that some places add (you know raisins, walnuts, grapes, curry, etc). The restaurant was crowded and I noticed that a ton of people were enjoying the french onion soup. It looked delicious! I would've liked to try it to if we weren't on the go....I'll keep that in mind for next time.
As we were strolling around, we hit up a farmers market that was happening down the street from the bakery. Everything looked so fresh and delicious. If we were headed back to ABQ right away, I would have bought one of everything!
