La Baguette, Colorado Springs

Here are some quick words and pics about one of my favorite places in Colorado Springs, La Baguette. I think there are two or three of them but the one I usually go to is on Pikes Peak, downtown, next to the movie theatre. I’ve also been to the one in Old Colorado City a couple of times. I’m not sure if they’re owned by different people or what but they have slightly different menus. I like the menu at the Old Colorado City one better but the ambiance at the downtown one better.

The decor could be much “French-er”. It’s a lot better than the Old Colorado City one, which is a more nondescript  open space.

The food is excellent at both locations. It’s mostly quiches, soups, salads, sandwiches, that kind of thing. The  Old Colorado City one makes their own bread. The downtown one gets their bread from the OCC one.

I almost always get the quiche- they have different ones each day. It comes with a yummy roll or bread and either green salad or fruit. I never get fruit in restaurants because it’s almost always yukky, so I get the salad. But I don’t really like their dressing. Next time I’ll ask for just oil and vinegar. But the quiche! It’s sooooo good. Every single one I’ve ever had there is delish.

Mike had a croissant sandwich with turkey. I had a bite and it too was delish.

 The Old Colorado City location has a larger menu and includes more snacky type items in addition to full meals. I wasn’t that hungry and was able to just get a small cheese croissant there. It didn’t come with salad or anything and was about half the price of the full meals.

Another thing you know I like- you can sit outside at both locations. If a hobo smoking a cigarette and drinking an endless cup of coffee isn’t sitting next to you (the downtown location seems to attract an interesting crowd), or traffic on Colorado isn’t streaming and noisy (the Old Colorado City location has sidewalk seating but it’s very close to the street) you’ll have a really nice time out there.
