Freshly Baked Pastries and Breads
Recently, I was on a two-week trip through France and Italy, and had the pleasure of discovering the fabulous food culture that surrounded and encompassed those countries. Upon my return, I have been in search for a baguette that even comes close to the quality of baguettes that I enjoyed in France. Needless to say, I have tried a lot of bread in the past few months. Until recently, I felt that I should give up my search, realizing that I will never find baguette quite as perfect as what I discovered in France. However, an individual in my same search gave me a tip. I was educated about the baguette from the Wooden Spoon Cafe’ and Bakery, learning that it is the closest I will ever come to the caliber of baguette that I was looking for. And, it is. I walked into the small cafe just after 1:00PM, the cafe closing at 2:00PM, and asked the associate at the counter for a baguette. He quickly went back into the kitchen and reappeared with a baguette that was freshly baked that morning. The crust was a dark golden brown, the inside was proofed to it’s full potential with a slightly salty taste, and the bread had a soft inner core.
However, aside from their baguette, the cafe and bakery has a delicious display of confectionary items and a cafe menu filled with soups, salads, and sandwiches. It’s a quaint little spot for breakfast or lunch with a friend or even by yourself.
The Wooden Spoon Cafe’ and Bakery is located at 2418 W 32nd Ave, Denver, CO 80211 (303) 999-0327
