The History of La Baguette French Bistro

Not just another La Baguette...

Patrick & Krystyna Garnier bought La Baguette French Bakery from Co-Founder, Christine Turnipseed, in July 2007 with the goal of improving the 20 year old, popular eatery with authentic classic French and European specialties.Since then, La Baguette French Bistro has come full circle with a new "casual chic" Country French décor scheme and a full European breakfast and lunch menu available all day. La Baguette French Bistro is now a trendy and busy food service destination for Colorado Springs locals and visitors alike. Opened Monday through Saturday from 7am to 4pm, until 3pm on Saturdays, La Baguette French Bistro also offers Take Out, Catering Services and a Full Kids Menu.


For the last 20 years, La Baguette French Bakery, an affiliate of La Baguette French Bistro has been recognized by the locals with many quality awards for its world class French Breads and Croissants. Today, La Baguette French Bistro is still offering the same wonderful breads and bakery delicatessens along with other European specialties which have established La Baguette French Bistro as one of the local favorite eatery. Specialties such as the ever popular Tarragon Chicken Salad; the French Onion Soup Gratinee or the delicious, creamy Three Cheese Fondue are still on the menu and still prepared just the way it was 20 years ago when the Turnipseed's opened their first location in Old Colorado City. Owner operators, Patrick Garnier and his wife, Krystyna, have significantly added to the original menu and now offer a full, uninterrupted breakfast and lunch menus served all day.

Using fresh seasonal and local products, the new menu offers an extended European omelets and casserole list, new Provincial style salad offerings, Mediterranean pasta entrees, gourmet cold and hot sandwiches and hearty soups. Classic French dishes such as Garlic Butter Escargots (Snails), Croque Monsieur or Madame, French Roast Beef Dip and Almond Toasted French Toast with Berries compliment the menu. Freshly prepared desserts such as Double Espresso Chocolate Mousse, Crème Brulee and Country Style Croissant Bread Pudding along with many others wonderful sweets, also make La Baguette French Bistro a perfect destination for an afternoon tea.
