This little French bakery with the red awning on Speer Boulevard near downtown Denver is owned and operated by Kathleen Kenny Davia, who opened Gateaux Specialty Cakes and Pastries in 1999. Along with assorted cake pops, tea cookies, pastries, tortes and tarts, Gateaux bakes cakes of all kinds for all occasions -- and while special cakes for holidays, bridal showers and weddings need to be ordered ahead of time, a pastry case is stocked for last-minute “Oops, I forgot to get a cake” situations, with quick personalization available to cover up your mistake. That pastry case also contains a variety of treats such as tiramisu, sour cream pound cake and key-lime tarts. Gateaux is also a waste-free business, with all unsold items donated to Father Woody’s at the Denver Rescue Mission once a week.
