Warm, crusty baguettes. Flaky, buttery croissants. Sweet berry tarts. Omelettes, crepes, quiche, petits fours, and cake. Hungry yet?
If not, you undoubtedly will be by the time you scroll through these photos from La Baguette de Normandy. This exceptional family bakery, just five minutes from Stepping Stone™, serves up authentic French breads and pastries, in addition to sandwiches, cookies, handcrafted chocolates, and large party-sized cakes.
Please note that we are not talking about the “French” facsimiles found in typical Colorado bakeries. Au contraire. The bakery’s glass case of Gallic confections comes to life each day under the direction of Chef Michael Dupont, a French certified master baker, chef, and chocolatier for 25 years. A quick perusal of their Facebook, Yelp, and Tripadvisor reviews brings up telling quotes like these: “As authentic as it gets in the States” and “From someone who grew up in Europe, I can tell you it is the real thing.”
La Baguette de Normandy is open Tuesday-Friday from 6:30am-5pm, so you can pop in for a café au lait and breakfast of pain perdu (French toast), or a ham croissant sandwich for lunch. Followed by a petit four to go, of course.
Lucky for Stepping Stone residents, this is just one among the many, many tasty places to explore in Parker. If you don’t live in Stepping Stone yet, come visit the model homes. But do stop by La Baguette de Normandy on your way.
