I have followed some of the threads on favourite restaurants and the like here, but I'd like to know about some good bakeries in the Denver area. I love desserts of almost all kinds, but have a special corner for moist cakes. Also would love to visit local stores than head over to King Soopers. Whole Foods has been an exception so far, even their vegan cakes have been yumm!

One sticks in my mind. Schmidts Bakery. (Hopefully I spelled that right.)

Check out Katherine French Bakery at katherines.org . It is in the Havana & Yale shopping area (kind of hard to see it as there are many shops there).

I was led to believe there are no good bakeries in Colorado because of the high altitude. "Good luck in finding good bread, either" I was told. My only trip to Colorado seemed to confirm that, judging by the small, hard donuts served at our hotel, but I admit I was looking for houses not baked goods. I'd love to hear of any good bakeries in Douglas and Jefferson Counties. Keep the posts coming!

Masterpiece Cake Shop, in Lakewood on S. Wadsworth is my favorite. I had my wedding cake done there, and after sampling several bakeries, this was the best. The cake was super moist, and the frosting was sweet, but not too sweet. I think they specialize in cakes, so I don't know if they have any other baked goods.

Rhineland Bakery in Arvada is THE BEST. Try the gluten free cakes! Plus the smell alone just walking into this authentic german bakery will knock you off your feet!!

I'm originally from Kansas, apon moving to Denver I was told the exact thing but it's untrue.

Hi, In Colorado you only have to add a tablespoon of flour to make it right, plus dont forget to put in TLC

I have experienced the best bakery in Silverplume, head up the mountain on I-70 past Georgetown 1 mile, pull off, turn right into town go to the T turn right and follow to the bakery, you cant miss it. Then, go ride the train! and see the old buildings and mines, visit the antique shop, even the cemetary is hauntingly beautiful. Have a great trip!

East siders:

Les Delices de Paris, 5303 Leetsdale Drive Denver 303-320-7596 for the best French patisserie. Try their Brioche and brioche specialties, anything cream filled, and anything with fruit. Order ahead to make sure you get what you want--they have a picture book in the front lobby. My French is not up to the descriptions but Christelle's is. P.S. I don't work for them or own them. I just love them. P.S. Don't bother with the coffee, take home the goodies for your next party.

The Bagel, on Monaco, for fresh Bagels, denver style bialys, and challah.

Racine's (restaurant) if all you want is a huge great chocolate brownie, the best deal in town.

Oh, I am sorry I did not read the post just above mine: The bakery in Silverplume is not in Denver, it's on I-70 west of Georgetown with the railway station, It is great for wholesome breads and rolls, granola, snacks, etc. It's owned by the most wonderful couple: true love in mid life, respectable bikers, and great folks. I stop whenever I drive through and load up on bread.

Hello, Yes the german bakery in Olde Town Arvada. Also there is a French pastry shop in the Target Shopping Center just a few doors down at 80th and Wadsworth in Arvada. Very pretty treats and delicious too. I took a small assortment to my friends house for dessert and they were a big hit.

Default Bakery Suggestions-Denver area

Could you please help with recommendations for a delicious bakery in the Denver area (we're actually staying in Castle Rock)? Looking for reasonable prices. Celebrating parents 30th wedding anniversary and will be a group of about 10 people.

If at all possible, I'd like stay in the southern part of Denver to minimize the amount of driving.

Thanks in advance!
Angela
