I am always on the lookout for great bakeries when I travel. When I saw pictures of breads and baked goods from Babettes, I knew I had to check out the place while visiting family in Denver. The bakery is located inside the Source building. They use high hydration and caramelization method for their bread baking. We liked most of the goodies we purchased but were surprised at the high prices. Charging $6 for Pain aux Raisins is too much. Even their plain croissant was $4.25. People in France and Spain never pay this kind of prices.
It was a good croissant but not as buttery as I like.
Pain au Chocolat
My favorite pick from what we sampled. Great texture with dark enough chocolate to make me happy.
Chocolate Pistachio Escargot
At $6, it was overpriced and was on the sweet side.
My husband’s pick. I took a small piece from the side and it was tasty.
At $15, this was the most expensive bread I have ever purchased. It was very crusty and had a mix of rye, spelt, sunflower and sesame seeds. It tasted pretty good but I don’t know if it justified the price.
